I just spotted myself on the homepage of Flea Market Funk!! It is a fantastic website and I still can’t believe I’ve been included amongst so many other people I look up to (just have a look at the list!) Anyway, many many thanks to FMF for the big ups and lovely intro words, I almost combusted from the blushing. Head over to the site and READ THE INTERVIEW!
After a 2 month break due to some rescheduling of our show, we finally return to NTS Radio with two hours of absolute FIRE!
That’s right, this is definitely a show you shouldn’t miss out on if you like quality music. Loads of bangers and even more banter as Jazzman Gerald decides to do a slightly Brazilian themed show in preparation for the world cup next year.
We also drop some exclusive songs from our new Jef Gilson releases that now are available on the Jazzman website!
You can catch the show LIVE every fourth Friday between 12-2pm (GMT) on http://ntslive.co.uk/ and we will be back on air the 20th December 2013 with a Christmas Special!
Everything went a bit crazy towards the end of last week, but I am so excited and happy to officially confirm that me and Catariya FINALLY got the keys to our flat on Thursday 31st October 2013!
I have set up a separate blog where we will be documenting the transformation of our flat and you can follow our entire journey over at:
I have been writing and re-writing this post in my head for over two weeks, but no matter how I try to spin it or reorganise it, somehow it doesn’t even begin to capture how I feel and what I am going through.
At some point during the night between the 14-15th of October my grandfather passed away.
During that same time, I was at Gatwick airport waiting to catch the first available flight home.
He was in hospital but doctors seemed to think that his condition was improving, so it was more or less a shock to find out what had happened when we went to see him straight after I had landed.
I’m not going to bore you with the details because there are too many things I want to say but don’t know how to say them.
All I know is that with his passing he took a piece of my heart that I will never be able to replace.
I am not scared of death. But losing somebody you love isn’t the same as losing yourself.
He had a long and healthy life, he wasn’t perfect, but I loved him despite all his faults and past wrong doings.
And what hurts the most is not that he is gone, but that life had to work in such a way that I couldn’t make it back home in time to say goodbye.
