Im off in a motorcar from Manchester to Sardinia via Belgium in search of the sun. I may not be back for a while so let me wish you all a perfect end to the summer where ever you may be ;)

Congrats to the 6 DJ finalists heading over to Sun and Bass this year. Looking forward to lounging with the lucky loosers drowning their sorrows to all the sets in the glamourous surroundings of Bal Harbour, roll on the Sardinian spirit measures ;)

EP sounds fresh and ready for the sunny season glad to be a part of it :)  Cover styles by the one and only Gina DrewesDisco Bird of Paradise‘ hot in my short set hoody, miss you sis danke xx If you’ve not got summer on your mind you soon will but be prepared, released exclusively on Beatport May 14th your ‘Never Coming Home’…


theres a stillness in time

Pulled out Jamiroquais Return Of The Space Cowboy from the CD rack this week and it hasn’t left my stereo since, such perfect music for the glorious weather and it still sounds more than relevant 17 years after its release. Definately my favourite album from Jay Kay and the lads i’d forgotten just how amazing some of the songs are; Half The Man, Mr Moon & Morning Glory!! Do not play these when your alone with me if you dont want me to jump your bones! Far to early (in the UK) for any rumpy pumpy so hows about this little beauty instead, enjoy ;)


my plane song

Im back in the UK after a truely inspiring tour around South America which i think just might be my favorite continent. Obviously it was hot over there, t-shirts vest and shorts my main day wear for the past 10 days….hot as well were the men, oh if only i’d dipped my biscuit in the wonder of it all. How fitting then that this song came on my ipod en route home and stayed there on loop whilst i snoozed sandwiched between  Russian holiday makers on an Air France flight back to winter….


mourning summer :(

Im so pissed at the weather these past few months mostly cause these pretty little things have stayed in the box venturing out only once this whole summer. Rain rain go away so i can wear my Basquiat Reeboks another day!


Raekwon on pop

Wu Tang are just one of my teenage fave’s  gracing the UK shores this summer (checked Snoop & Prince last week,  Salt n Pepa get here in Aug!) caught a bit of the interview Raekwon done for 6music to promote the UK shows, where he says it exactly how it is with regards to artistic content of the modern day pop artist/rapper.

I cant bloody wait to see the Wu…seriously too many albums with too many tunes what the hell are they gonna fit into their live show?? Oh sooo exciting :) Makes you wonder though in terms of the artistic development of the modern day stars he’s talking about are Tinchy, Tinie, Dappy, Sneezy (lmao)  and whoever else you lot listen to gonna be able to get back on stage in 13 years time for a WORLD TOUR? With the unoriginal A&R’ing of the UK major labels just what longevity are they creating for their artists? I’ll stop right there.


1 reason the rain is good

Urban Nerds JUmper

I get to wear my white Urban Nerds jumper, which doesnt really work in winter!


a song for the sun

Yes yes yes, its warm in Manchester and even though my wax ran out half way through my right leg, i dont care, im ready to go enjoy the heat!!! Any 22 years olds of the pretty male type fancy pooling pocket money for a car to run away in this arvo…what??! I mean to innocently recreate the video! (perverts!!)

Five Finger Death Punch

5fingerdeathpunch

These pleasant looking chaps were on before us at Summer Sonic in Tokyo & Osaka and rocked the fook out in tru metal form….i mean just check the press pick, beards, dreads and tats. The Qemists (me included) looked like Aloha From Hell in comparison! Blondie aka Ivan the lead singer is a sweetheart, even though his facial tattoo will have you believe he’s a murderer…he also dropped the scariest chat up line i’ve ever heard… (more…)
