As a woman that has worn Chanel 5 since she was old enough to buy it herself i couldnt help but scream “what the fuck are you on about?’ at the TV this evening when confronted by Brad Fit in their new advert spewing poetic nonsense about how wearing it isnt a journey because journeys end or some thing pointless like that…oh hes so sexy but clearly not enough to make lead weightless. Not to have ago at Mr Pitt hes merely reading the script and the idea of having the worlds most sexiest man (official) tell me he likes nay loves the way i smell thats all very genius but couldnt they have splashed out a bit more on the script which seems to have been mustered together by a couple of 10year old on fashion blogging crack, queue parodies please.
So i like to make mixes, not club mixes i dont consider myself a club DJ, just selections of good tunes old/new, accoustic/electronic etc wrapped around themes. If you ever checked out Frontroom Radio you’ll see what i mean however i slowly stopped making that mostly because the sound of my own voice irked me somewhat but without a little explanation the mixes seemed quite jumbled. Anyways so i still wanna make mixes with a varied selection of tunes but i dont wanna bore anyone either (im in a paranoid phase artistically right now) so i came up with the 20/20 idea. 20 songs in 20 minutes that will hopefully have you digging out some old records or hunting for something new. I want to see if DJing like Tim Westwood with songs that are better than just there chorus can actually work…so here goes the first session, a reclamation of songs that speak love.
Me and Henry were out on the town last night to take a look at the new threads and sample the free grog in store at Carhartt Manchester.
Where does he find the time ? Riz MC with a twisted love song.
Ballin on a Budget was crazy last night big shout to the Broke n £nglish boys n crew for a right royal knees up! Still in the dancing mood im blasting out the Deep Down & Broken podcast (thank you Nicola!) why oh why are there only 4 of them? Anyways whilst 2 stepping i found this song which has to be the perfect companion for my long lost favourite Tequila 1800. Drink it warm, in the sun with this on the speakers you’ll be far from wrong
So Twitter fam and Facebook posse will have already seen the links that went out yesterday for the video for Flood Of Emotions (D1 & myself) on Dub Police. If not sit back relax and watch me get slapped in a park in Bristol then transform myself in a Gina Drewes blanket dress for the piano led performance shot, gwarn Dwayne lol. Fabulous job by the Foo Mag guys, and all Submerged fam really glad to have worked with ya cant wait for the release coming soon longside Bleeps to Broadway on Dub Police.
New from Hercules & the Love Affair . Im finding this track is making todays change of schedule even harder…i wanna be in my house, with my mic and my notes making amazing music. Royal Mail please fix up in the next hour and a half
Its a simple concept based on a song a lot of you have a special place for, In Love print series is on a sample run right now at Mysoti. Four colors to reflect how your pixelated heart is feeling, i got me a red and purple (pic after the jump) one in the making cause i yoyo between those two emotions constantly…my little trip to south america not helping at all
According to the Babelands Briefs email i found in my inbox this morning, the above is better than chocolate and the answer to a sizzling long distance romance. Personally this news has come a little to late in the day however it seems you can hook this up to your Skype and it will react to the sound of your lovers voice, you can also plug it into your music player to be fondled by the bass n drums in ya playlist, ha haha. This is a feature i’ve heard of before, so i dont know why the whole addition of its Skype compatibility makes me feel uncomfortable about the whole thing….any one out there agree/disagree, gonna get it/already has it to end the long distance agony?
Here in the city of Vienna for tonights Gina Drewes catwalk show, im positively beside myself with excitement as ill be appearing as the last model of the show and busting a little sing song Sandie Shaw style in my mourning kimono…also i just found that there’ll be a shit load of male models hanging around all day due to the other shows being just for men, life is just too good right now, dont hate me it will probably only last the weekend If you cant make it to the show then head on down the the Banana Club after 12 for a another fabulous outfit and some seriously huge shoulder pads……tee hee!
A bit back i blogged about going down to London town to get filmed eating ice cream whilst wearing my Aerosoul t-shirt. This is the very dope finished product from Protean Productions. The A.S – J.M.

The beautiful voice of Jesse Boykins III might be familiar to you from his work with Theophilus London or Machine Drum , if not make sure you check out this awesome new talent making waves in NYC. This video for Amorous taken from the album Beauty Created (out now) and was filmed during his first trip to these shores, to perform his in london. Check out a lovely interview with the man himself over at PJ‘s. In the meantime can some one clarify if he’s saying ‘she’s a walrus in the chorus’….it cant be it doesnt make any sense…unless the lady in subject is huge…lol!
Hmmmmmm female prostitution, obviously a Hollywood worthy storyline (Pretty Woman, hello!) however i dont think this is gonna have quite the same impact….Danny Dyer switches it up again to play a west end uber pimp (god the reach of this mans talent is unbelievable) in the imaginatively entitled PIMP!
FR04 yes yes yes the fadio (fake radio) show i make whilst being recreational in my frontroom, this time im drum and bass mixing…its not that bad actually, i would blow a horn or two if i heard it in a club, but would you?? Thanks to all who’ve listened so far over at Mixcloud, if you liked, then share, spread, play again and again, louder and louder until you know all my speaking parts off by heart and your housemate wants to smash your face in with his mac!!

Loving this picture sent from Dave Refell (one of many fun people i met this weekend in Londinium!) it came with the quote ‘Cause Strawberries are made from Straw & Brie’ *giggles*
Q – How much are virgin paying Beyonce and Gaga to promote their communication devices?
A – Enough for them to release 2 singles subliminally (NOT) mentioning their product and create this epic video featuring you guessed it a close-up of a virgin mobile (again!). (more…)
Aprils nearly here and bringing with it showers, sun (please) and the release of Roskas‘ album ‘Roska’. My brother from another mother Mr Miller showed me the album promo video yesterday created by the incredibly talented Monsta Art, literally comic genius, in fact if you don’t laugh at the birds Squark then i think you might be a bit dead inside.
W is a fabulous letter, it kicks off my second favorite day of the week and one of my favorite herbs. Unfortunately there is no W in Dub Pistols or Rodney P however they are both inspired by de weed, check out this funny video for their current single Ganja…. (more…)
Just seen the link to this on twitter this afternoon thanks to Jaïn for letting me know it was up and running again. ‘Shoot to the beat, dont over heat’ are the instructions, as with most computor games i dont really get it (see my score!) but the musics good (obviously!) and tis fun to see the Noisia lads popping up on the side of screen with game hints and the like. Perfect for those boring moments at work/school/whereever, now go shoot stuff in time to dirty beats
Ok so i was aware that my friend Gina was amazing at designing and making beautiful unique and stylish clothes but until my birthday weekend in Vienna i had only been able to appreciate that talent whilst coveting the garms from afar on her website and waiting endlessly for the sun to come out so i can wear my Gina Drewes blanket hoody (as above but mines grey and pink!). The best birthday present then to be up close and personal in her atelier (situated in the back of Lila pix boutique) jacking wi fi and sleeping on her couch whilst spend a whole weekend dressed up in her fabulous creations from the new range Bird of Paradise, all of which i want when there out later this year (dam you Gina only making one of everything so far!).
