Whoa, how about this? The old dude above in the pic robbed a kiosk in Arabianranta district in Helsinki yesterday evening on sawed-off shotgun point.
The police have not yet managed to recognize him, let alone catch him. Apparently he scored a couple of hundred Euros and ran away, just like that.
Like Melle Mel said, 'It's like jungle some times...' and hey, this is pretty close to where I live and where I go taking my sunday walks with my family and riding my bike and so on. There are also a bunch of our friends living in and around the 'hood there. Pretty scary, eh?
Anyhow, if you see or recognize him, give the cops a Holla! on either of these numbers: 09-1895464 or 09-1894002.
I know we've said some nasty things about our Helsinki cops here on our blog before so I feel that we need to make up for that by trying to help them a bit here.
Also, I need to point out that when I go shopping for groceries to feed my hungry family, I rock the exact same type of environmentally conscious canvas shopping bag, instead of a plastic bag. I'm an environmentally conscious type of person after all, just like the robber seems to be. For this reason I give him one point for the eco-factor.
I'm also tempted to give him another style point for the fact that he had an old school sawed-off shotgun, which is IMHO the second most credible gun to be used for criminal activities in the urban jungle, after the legendary Uzi. But since we all are really against any kind of violence and firearms here in the Kriton Hippy Treehugger Camp, he gets no points for that. Sorry, dude.
EDIT: The police have now recognized and caught the robber. According to the news, he hasn't yet admitted that he did, though. Anyhow, the streets are safer around here again.

Ok, it's time get back 2 the basics. At Kriton Music we spend our time blogging about bicycle parts and all sorts of other weirdness. And sometimes forget to post the most obvious stuff in here - new Kriton tracks of course.
So heres a quick update - two new tracks form the Kriton factory!
The new Kriton High School Banger "Do The Damn Thang" is all about the techno and "Ghetto Feet" is yours truly taking a dip into the Juke pool with Dude N Nem's massive hit. Enjoy these babies!

Above is the lovely Orange video of my personal favorite Japanese band Boris' new single "Statement". It rocks. The new album, 'Smile', should be out soon on mighty the Southern Lord label too.
But what's even better, there's a rumor currently going around that they might play in Tavastia Club here in Helsinki 2nd of May. How cool would that be?
UPDATE!UPDATE! UPDATE! UPDATE!
The rumor was true, it's happening, May 2nd at Tavastia, tickets are for sale now for meagre 12€ each. Go get 'em.

Enjoy the video above. It's straight continuation on the my previous post here.
More BMX'es, skinny jeans, crazy skillz, excellent music and super smooth cinematography.
All you need really. No mag wheels this time, though.

We havent posted so many dj-mixes here in the Kriton Blog so far, unless they've been our own or something like that. But now is a good chance to change that. Since a good buddy of ours, DJ Henrikki made a new hot mix (and he doesn't make new tapes just every day) - The Glamorous Life.
Now Henrikki, responible for the one of the nicest rap clubs in Helsinki, Big Pimpin, is best known for his skills in hiphop stuff. But this time he's decided to show how versatile he can be, by mixing together a whole lot of 80's synth classics, house, electronic and other things that you wouldnt expect (see the track list above!). And the title is obviously taken from the immortal 80's gem by Sheila E.
Dowload the mix here (zshare)
And oh yeah, the covers of course made by yours truly
