Soundboy Sam's first blog entry

Soundboy Sam | 17:25 UK time, Thursday, 29 April 2010

Greetings my 1Xtra family,

This is Soundboy Sam - your resident reggae ambassador and dancehall dubplate don.

Over the last few weeks, those unruly pickney - Ace and Vis - have been asking me to appear on their radio show to report on some big sports events that have been happening in the UK.

If you missed it all, take a listen... and make sure you tune into their shows over the weekend for more lessons in reggae, roots and culture, courtesy of yours truly.

Peace & love,

Soundboy Sam

Ace & Vis with SB and Black The Ripper

If you are a regular internet user and into Homegrown UK music then you've probably stumbled across SBTV and their F64s?

What started out as a part-time hobby, recording friends spitting MCing/rapping on his handy cam, has materialised into SB capturing videos featuring some of the music industry's biggest names, the likes of Chipmunk and Tinchy Stryder, Sway, Pro Green, Mike Skinner, Dizzee Rascal, Wiley etc all immediately spring to mind... And thats just for starters! Even overseas acts such as Talib Kwali have recently request to get on camera.

With all this in mind we felt it was only right to team up with SBTV to give you the official SBTV F64 Top Ten as voted for on their website.

If you missed the show have a listen HERE to find out who won.

Are you serious??

Do you surf & turf??

Ace | 18:16 UK time, Sunday, 18 April 2010


On this weeks show we discovered the majority of 1xtra listeners have no problem in going to the toilet while being on the phone although we ALL hate talking to someone while they are on the toilet. We also discovered a few of you "surf and turf" this means that you surf the internet on your Laptops while being on the toilet (Nasty). Heres what a few of you had to say:

"I tell my friends if i'm on the loo or if i need 2 do it. They hate it but a woman has to multi task to get everythin done x"

"My boyfriend is always purposely calling me when he's on the toilet! especially doing a number two! but i never notice til he tells me. how does he not m ake any noise doing a number 2! lily x"

"I like playin games on my phone while havin a number 2 but it kinda takes ur mind off the whole number 2 thing lol arron from high wycombe blup blup "

"Hi Ace Vis , I hate when someone is using the toilet and talking to me but I happily do it to other people! My favourite place to catch up on tweets on twitter or reply or just have a convo with someone on blackberry messenger take care yoke"

Do you use the phone on the toilet?
Do you surf n turf??

Holla back!!

Big up to Tempa T whos track "Next hype" is doing massive things in clubs up and down the country at the moment. Believe us if this tune comes on in a club and you weigh less than 10stone stay as far away from the dancefloor as possible. Its crazy!! Anyway it seems Tempz has not only got the uk following his music but also his fashion because we caught this guy in the audience on question time wearing a Tempa T "Pars R Us" T-shirt. Big! Hopefully we'll see Paxman wear one on the next episode of Newsnight.


Getting to know Ashley Young

Vis | 13:44 UK time, Friday, 9 April 2010


A few weeks ago I managed to catch up with one of the worlds most promising footballers Ashley Young of Aston Villa FC and England. Of course I took the interview as an opportunity to cause a bit of trouble. Have a listen:

Picture Perfect

Ace | 15:24 UK time, Saturday, 3 April 2010


This picture of Jay-z and Dr Dre in the studio was leaked this week. the rumour that accompanies the picture is that they are in the studio working on the 1st single from Dr. Dre's highly anticipated album "Detox". Now the questions behind this picture are as follows:

Are they really working on Detox?
Is Detox ever gonna come out?
Does Jay-Z actually know how a mixing desk works or is he sitting there for show?
Why is Dres Forehead so shiny?
Was Beyonce the Camera woman?
How will rapper The Game feel about this picture?
Is this picture just a figment of our imagination?

Anyway, every time these guys have worked together in the past they've made classics so lets just hope this is another one.

Golddiggers: Heros or Villains?

Ace | 12:32 UK time, Thursday, 1 April 2010

On Todays show we delved into the world of a Gold digger. We asked was it acceptable to be one? Was it cool? How much can you make? and took loads of different thoughts and opinons on the matter. If you missed saturdays show listen back.
