Scholarly Rizal, who wanted to compensate for his 5’3″ stature (contested, others claim he was 4’11” based on his clothing), turned to weight-lifting to amp up his physique. His waist, measuring 25″-26″ had a 12-inch difference from his chest, 37.” Cement barbells were discovered in his Dapitan home (trust our genius national hero to be resourceful in a time of exile).
Leon Ma. Guerreo also noted that as a child, Rizal was made fun of by the schoolmaster’s son, Pedro, at his elementary school in Laguna. Rizal, who is not known as a combative man, challenged Pedro to a fight and won.
Dick Johnson Racing has unveiled two striking new liveries for this weekend’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
Both the #17 and #18 Jim Beam Racing Falcons will carry new schemes, representing Jim Beam’s super premium products – Jim Beam Black and Jim Beam Bonded.
This weekend at Mount Panorama, Steve Johnson and David Besnard will compete in metallic silver colours, representing Jim Beam Black, while the #18 Falcon of James Moffat and Matt Halliday will carry a gold look with Jim Beam Bonded branding.
Jim Beam has dubbed the two new-look cars ‘The Premium Pair.’
It is the first time in Jim Beam sponsorship’s history that it has entered non-white race cars.
The new colours will remain on the new cars until the end of the 2011 season.
Team driver Johnson says that after a disappointing Phillip Island meeting last month, he sees no reason why the team can’t deliver a top result with new colours at Mount Panorama.
“To have two cars with different liveries, and to launch them on the biggest race weekend in Australian motorsport, it can’t get any better,” Johnson told Speedcafe.com.
“For the fans here at the track and watching on TV, I’m sure that Jim Beam is going to get a lot of mileage out of it this weekend.”
Beam Global Australia’s brand Director for Ray Noble says ‘The Great Race’ and the team’s premium look is the perfect fit.
“Working with Jim Beam Racing to re-brand the cars with The Premium Pair design for this weekend’s iconic race was a perfect fit, as there’s no doubt Bathurst is motorsport’s premium event,” Noble says.
“We’re really excited to have Dick Johnson and Allan Moffat, two legends of the sport, together at Bathurst. It will be a huge boost to the team to have them in our garage passing on their knowledge and experience throughout the weekend.”
We got a chance to catch up with our friend J-Trick and asked him a couple questions about Moombah Heat Vol.1 dropping today on Club Cartel Records.
What do you think of the moombahton scene right now?
J-Trick: The moombah scene is thriving right now i think! We’ve got alot of new artists joining the movement and pushing their own sound and i think that’s really positive. While i was on tour in the states i played a fair few moombah gigs and the reception was dope so im hoping that it grows even more in the coming months/years!
What are your favorite tracks from this comp?
I love every single track on the compilation so that’s a hard one, but i’d have to say Damage’s original “Illectric” really stands out for me. The track is the definition of Moombahton in my eyes… Bleepy synths, crazy perc and all round banging energy! Also, Mackai’s “This is Mackai” and Kraymer & Tigre Hoods “Westcoast” are tunes that ive been dropping in my sets alot, so those 2 as well.
Tell us abit more about the artists on the comp?
We have a lot of young and unexposed dudes on this compilation which im really proud about! My label is all about exposing new talent and this compilation does exactly that! We have our dudes from the USA Damage, Corrupted Data, Paul Lee Carrier DJR and Arroz Con Pollo. These guys are all really raw and for afew of them, this will be their first proper released track on Beatport so im really excited for them. They have all been doing some big things behind the scenes but I can tell you that these dudes are the new wave! Then we have our Aussie dudes Kraymer, Spenda C, Mackai, and Perreo Perreo who are leading the moombah movement in Australia at the moment. These guys have also been making noise with their releases and we are really excited to have them on board! Overall, all the artists on Moombah Heat have come together to create a banging release that we are all proud to be a part of so its happy days for all us here at Club Cartel!!
You had a huge response on this comp once you released the artwork, was it hard choosing the material?
We had over 80 demos sent in within the first 2 weeks so it was nuts! It was hard choosing the final 10, which is why we extended it to 12, but for all those who missed out on this one, we will be doing Vol 2 very soon! We will keep you posted on that one.
When going through all the demos that where sent in what was some of the criteria you where looking for with each tune what helped make those final 12 songs the ones you chose?
I was looking for a range of tunes that would appeal to every audience in the moombah community. I wanted to create a release that people could buy as a whole, and play every track in their sets, which is why we have a mixture of Moombahton, Core, and even soul elements. Overall i was looking for big tunes in each genre of moombahton, tunes with huge energy, crazy drops and epic builds, which is what i’ll also be looking for for Vol 2!
Any last words?
If you love moombahton go support this release! Its got abit of something for everyone and the tunes are poppin so be sure to cop that! And also, a big thanks to everyone involved in the release!
