Via Rolling Stone:

“The London-via-Sri Lanka art-punk funkateer came on like she knew she was kind of a big deal, and it didn’t take her long to convince everyone in earshot. On her second album, she restyled hip-hop as one big international block party, mixing up a whole sound clash of beatbox riddims, playground rhymes, left-field samples and gunshots. It’s a dance-off in a combat zone. Full of political fury and musical imagination, Maya Arulpragasam proved she could steal beats from anywhere — the Pixies, the Modern Lovers, Sri Lankan temples, Bollywood disco soundtracks — and turn it all into a party chant.”

Ride Details:

Let’s take a day trip to Calabasas to explore everything Malibu Creek State Park has to offer.  Formerly owned by 20th Century Fox, Malibu Creek State Park has 7,000 acres of dramatic, jagged peaks, stunning canyon vistas, oak woodlands, rolling hills of tallgrass, and even a large volcanic swimming hole.  There are 15 miles of trails through oak and sycamore woodlands and chaparral-covered slopes.  The park’s also famous because they shot M*A*S*H there.

After the park, let’s grab some grub at the Commons at Calabasas.


Bring water, snacks, hiking shoes and plenty of sunblock.
