=THE ART OF FREESTYLE=

- Scottish Bboy Champs 2002 -


Early experiments with catching beats and musicality, not thinking about the moves... just seeing what comes out......


No audio overlay - Music feed directly from the DJ's turntables (hence clear sound), layered over the video from

club's ceiling camera, and recorded

directly to VHS in the club on the day.


=THE ART OF FREESTYLE=

- Ozzy’s Hip-Hop Shop -


Just after a performance with

Random Aspekts, for

Stirling Council...


En route to the train station,

we stop in at

Ozzy’s hip-hop shop

to find him dropping

fresh tunes on the

turntables behind the till...
