serato icon series

‘The Icon Artist Series is a diverse, hand-picked collection of artists who represent and epitomise the Serato ethos’

Its great to hear musicians you admire that make music you love talk about the makings of that music and what it means to them as a whole. The Icon series delivered just that for me with episode 2 which featured Erykah Badu and they’ve done it again with number 4,  The Gaslamp Killer, i dare you to watch it and not head nod vigorously, i felt so pumped after it!


The Lazy Blogger

Yeah thats me, its been way too long and im doubting theres even one person left reading this because of my utter slackness but im not gonna lie its been a hard, mad year and its made me very lazy in terms of blogging. So much to catch up on…some might say even too much so im not gonna back track too much, more try to push things forward ;)

Right now im in my kitchen still suffering from jet lag after an awesome week in LA. Big shouts to the Winter Fresh Crew for getting me over there and to all the faces that took me places, i particularly enjoyed driving on the wrong side of the road for the first time…not as scary as i thought it would be thanks to the perfect soundtrack provided by Backspin radio, literally every song you want to hear about Cali/LA when your drivin through it ;)

Speaking of scary no doubt alot of you will have witnessed Strategy’s Voodoo priest get up for the terror dome anthem from DubPhisix, Skeptical & himself ‘Marka‘. Absolute salute to the Manc contingency on this one, the video which is already over 100,000 views on the tube is like an excerpt from a movie i wouldnt watch alone. Nice to see alot of support for this track which no doubt will be smacking a speaker system near you over the festive period!

In closing i obviously have to direct anyone in the Manchester area towards The Ritz tomorrow night (Monday) for Hit n Run vs Riot Jazz. Ill be jumping on for a few tunes with the RJ Brass Band ad mist a heavy line up as always ft Silkie, Drumagik and more :) See you there or back on here now im not being so lazy :)


If you like it then you shoulda put a stick in it

Lovesicles

This week on Twitter there has been some serious feminine appreciation, you could even say gyal crushing after becoming distantly aquainted with an LA based chica named Creation Cave after a very helpful tweet about fashion, we #ff’d each other and now im giving her some blog love for her brand new dopely titled Lovesicles blog all about her love for, you guessed it, popsicles. As the blog tagline reads: ‘If you like it  then you shoulda put a stick in it!’ need i say more? Read.bookmark.crush but remember i seen her first!
