Where do i begin? Its been nearly a month since i last checked in and theres so much to post, i guess the only way is to work backwards. So im in Berlin, i’ve been here for about 5 weeks gigging around Germany. Ulm, Wurzburg, Braunschweig, Berlin every gig has been immense, have to give thanks to all that got me to their home towns and looked after me so well Monday night just gone i DJ’d at Stereo 54 here in Berlin it was scary as hell but if i remember correctly the dance floor was moving, busy plus the awesome bar staff kept me well liquored up afterwards all gratis, so i guess i did ok! Big Shouts to Thomas & Tom for letting me spin some of my favourite tunes was very fun indeed once i got over my nerves and got used to using vinyl (serato style) again, thanks to Oscar for the helping hand! Thought i’d say thank you as well to everyone who came down by letting off this little mix that i did for FrontRoom radio early this year, my chats a bit dated, dont mind the ‘exclusive’ talk the music is still all good
Sesame Street had the right idea teaching with music its fun much like this video which is most helpful as it teaches you German. Handy when like me your living in Berlin for a month…Its also highly appropriate as i’ve been the last one one on the dance floor at a few nights this week, slurring loudly ‘nah man, i dont want to go i havent finished dancing’! SHouts to JeSuS for the link, enjoy
Back in Germany once tonights fashion affair is over, flying into Stuttgart early morning then off to Ulm for the Soulfire sessions. Really looking forward to it especially after meeting some of the crew in Sun and Bass, looking forward to a little reunion, ha ha! If your in the area you know what to do, come down get loud and shack out STANDARD! x
So long, adieu goodbye my lovelies i have gone to further shores…ok im only in Belgium today but tomorrow ill be even further and then a week from now ill be in Berlin, not touching UK soil til Oct 4th, i can feel you miss me already as much as i miss you X
Haven’t done this in a while, so back in full effect its the Song For The Day! Get your piano power rangers capes on for Can – Mighty Girl a song i’ve been waking up to this every morning this week, its been an instrumental mantra which ladies (and gents if your man enough) you can have to, lol enjoy!
Ill never be a comedian, however i make my self laugh which is the most important thing Finally got my pictures on me mac from 2 weekends ago in Ravensburg, players ville south Germany…and i say that cause its famous for board games, hence a random blue monopoly house on the hill outside of town!
Was a really nice gig at Douala, i even got a stripper stage minus pole and the locals seemed to enjoy the performance, two even got me to sign their arms! I danced the rest of the night away in the back room with a Lemmy lookalike who’s worked at the club for 14 years, his English was as good as my German (next to none) but we giggled so much about nothing in particular til Lars started dropping the dubstep and I retired to the dj booth for some private skanking, not long after that Panda was looking a little fragile, so i had to take him back to the hotel, ready for the trip over Lake Konstanz back to Zurich in the following hours. The gig, the trip, the people were lovely, see for ya self ….
About a month ago i posted a dilema about trainers, in that there weren’t any good ones out in time for my birthday. One person who answered that post offered to send me a present…obviously i was under the impression that it was going to be a pair of trainers (even though as soon as i thought that i knew i was setting myself up) so imagine my surprise (or not) when i opened up the parcel and found this…
Ok i’ve definately got the date right on this one (its been one of those weeks!) this weekend im in a place i’ve never been before and if your from where im gonna be it would be lovely if you came down and made me feel at home! Ravensburg massive (or not so massive not sure how big the town is!) and the rest of the south Germany crew cant wait to see ya front and centre!!!
Wow what a mad weekend, my name up on one of those old school cinema style boards and cheeseburgers brought to me in bed…i am a very lucky girl…woman…lady…person?? lol No pictures from the Braun of schweig im afraid apart from this one above took by a raver (danke) it was ridiculously fun but i got very drunk, being a little nervous my first time in the city alone and all, I kept a hold of my drink rather than my camera, however Modfest was a different story… (more…)
Thats right you carvers of wasted flesh, if a Pumpkin was a puppy would you have gutted it so carelessly for one night of visual pleasure and then be throwing it on the bonfire later? I think not therefore behold the wondrous vegetable that is the mighty Pumpkin/Squash and fall in love with its many guises…. (more…)
This time a few weeks back i was about to have one of the surrealist sundays i’ve had in a long time. Giant pumpkins, flamingos, musical toadstools, more pumpkins, donkeys that spit chocolate coins, a broken camera, Victorian swings and Rapunzel’s tower are just a few of the things that spun my sober and therefore fragile little mind right out on a trip to Fairytale Land… (more…)
Few weekends back i flew over to Germany for the weekend to play at the Feelings Boat Party in Heidelberg… (more…)
Back from the East with a whole lot of detoxing going on…thanks to all the people we partied with from the Summer Sonic line up….thought i’d spend the next few posts getting familiar with their music cause i got familiar with every other part of them this past weekend….ho hum (more…)
My final night in Germany was spent in Stuttgart, MC’in for DJ Tease @ We Love Bass.
Was a very fun night indeed @ Club Bounce which used to be a brothel…in fact its located in Stuttgarts redlight district which is literally one street an and ally, lol. So wish my camera wasnt acting up (again) was alot of pictures i wanted to take (quite a few hot guys as well, oh hello) however i will have to make do with the memories being etched on my brain for a long time! Big up to everyone that came down was dope to see so many familiar faces, can’t believe i remembered most of you too, cause last time i was here we was D Runk!! Massive thanks to Tease for getting me over here again and of course my partner in crime the lovely Tina.
We’re doing the traditional Beerfest trip this afternoon, for foot high beers, massive German sausages and rollercoaster rides…
Bring it on!
Not in a good mood today, the ankle is pissing me off and the codeine has worn off severely, have made the decision to drink instead of drug the pain away thanks to yesterdays shenanigans! Slept in the cot for most of journey from Cologne, im thinking until im better its the only comfortable place to be in the van with my leg up!
Quite a mellow evening apart from my twitter apology from Rory for calling me a bitch and the gig in which we changed up the set a little and got another killer reaction from the crowd. Its mad fun playing for Shikari fans their well up for new music the merch is selling and everybody’s happy at the end of the night! I would have liked to go out and explore what this city had to offer but walking isnt the easiest right now and i have to be able to jump around for half an hour every evening onstage which means foot up whenever im off..
Ow ow ow ow, its the morning after a very rowdy night before. We had a great gig in Bochum, even if i was in the worst of moods by the end of it, however a good old knees up ( ankles down) with The Qemists and Enter Shikari soon changed the mood….
Im sat back stage whilst Enter are sound-checking my favourite song Juggernaut, i keep waking up singing this bitch seriously the choon is the shizzle! Has also been first day with the Shikari crew after our riot bonding sesh in Brussels, has been some jokes this afternoon i tell thee.Anyways here goes tour diary day 7, which by the way was another day off here in the bountiful Bochum!
After an amazing day n night in Brussels (where im sure the ankle first began to hurt) we headed on over the border to Bochum, which we all thought was in Poland but is actually in Germany, go figure genius’s! On route we watched Chopper as we finally had the dvd player working, all it took was a little slap and a poke from Timmy two dinners, he the man!
So Bochum….is interesting, our first experience of a Formula One hotel aka swingers town! This hotel was my worst nightmare for real, bunk beds, communal toilets (VD’S) and showers (verruca’s), with red and green lights over head…like that was suppose to be cute, in my first 30 mins in the hotel i seen 4 men roaming the corridor in their undies, very tight white undies and they weren’t even fit!!
