Happy Monday my friends!

I hope you have had a nice weekend. My weekends just seem to be getting better and better, this weekend not being an exception.

Went down to the Westbury on saturday night (despite the heavy rain I’d like to add). Was planning on a quiet night with no drinking just enjoying some quality tunes. Safe to say, it didn’t go as I planned… Due to my vodka loving Polish company, the vodka intake was a bit higher than anticipated. Nevertheless, MJ Cole played an incredible set, serving us tune after tune, proper setting the roof on fire. Everybody was dancing, even people I know never dance. One of the best “Download This” nights I have been to for a long time! (shout to Alex Phountzi from Bugz In The Attic / GreenMoney for putting on such a great night!)

Then Sunday arrived and I went down to Cargo to attend the Spin Doctors birthday bash/bbq. Oh man, what a perfect way to spend a sunday afternoon/evening!

The mood was on top, the vibes were amazing, and the DJ’s were incredible. I can’t remember the last time I went to an event where they played so many classic quality hiphop tunes! I especially like Kidkanevils set, EVERYBODY were getting down and singing along and feeling it. It put the biggest/silliest smile on my face ever haha. I love how good music can lift your spirits and make life seem 100 times better!

Now it is Monday and I feel a bit tired. But as they say, no rest for the wicked! There’s some pretty heavy stuff coming up this week! God I love summer in London!…

Good afternoon my friends!

How are we feeling today? All good I hope! Just wanted to give you heads up about this great documentary on 1Xtra called Bedroom Beats. It features some of the UK’s finest “bedroom producers” like Paul White, Bullion, Floating Points, Eric Lau, DJ IQ, Toddla T and many more. If you’re into making beats and producing stuff at home/from your bedroom, I definitely think you will enjoy this! Plus it’s not very long, only 26 minutes. So yes, check it out!

BEDROOM BEATS

I got an email through the other day, and this game really made me giggle. Finale is an emcee from Detroit, and you might have caught him last week at Deviation. His latest LP, A Pipe Dream And A Promise, includes productions from J Dilla as well as Flying Lotus, Oddisee, and Black Milk (to name a few). The game above is called Super Finale, and it gives you a chance to win the track “One Man Show” off his album. Even if you’re not into hiphop, it is a funny little way to start your morning with.

As for me, I should get ready for work. By the looks of it, no sunshine today either. But I guess that’s the way the cookie crumbles. Oh and if you’re out and about in London tonight, make sure you check this out tonight in Shoreditch

You’re chance to experience some fresh sounds from Alexander Nut, Floating Points & vocals  from (queen!) Fatima and Cooly G plus others @ The Macbeth, 70 Hoxton Street, LDN! You don’t wanna miss out. And I’m gonna be late, so Im off. Have a nice day peeps! x
