So I needed a day and a half to recover from the massiveness that was Saturday night. A BIG THANK YOU TO Q-TIP + MY LOVELY BROWNSWOOD FAMILY (PEGGY & SIMON FANTASTIC JOB!). I was working the guest list in the beginning of the night. Got a lot of abuse hahaha. Kind of put me in a weird mood. But then I went in to watch Q-Tips performance and I was completely blown away. Have a look:

That gave me goosebumps over my entire body and left me a bit speechless. The entire place was buzzing from start to finish. Everywhere I looked I could see hands in the air, people singing along, dancing, nodding their heads… I can’t really describe it with words, but when he started doing “Award Tour” the crowd went fucking MENTAL! I was dancing like I’ve never danced before!

To get the feel of the atmosphere, have a look at the video Lefto made from the balcony. LOOK AT THE CROWD! MASSIVE! Lefto also got some nice footage from the after party which was crazy! Warehouse basement, 700 people, absolutely mental!

Very nice to see Emily again! Haven’t seen her since I left Brownswood and I have missed her so much! Bumped into Si from Futuristica who I also havent seen for a while and it made me so happy. Adam, the tour manager of Breakestra who I met this summer at World Wide Festival also made it, and it felt nice to speak a bit of Swedish. I can’t believe he is arranging a show with Benji B in Gothenburg! Bumped into some Brownswood regulars which was nice as well, they are always so sweet and make me smile. All in all, an AMAZING night. Something I will tell my grandchildren about!

Ladies and Gentlemen, Tonight is the night! And, I am still so ill that I don’t know what to do with myself! I have been excited about this gig for months, MONTHS! I need to go and buy a bucket of make up to cover up this pathetic excuse for a face. My nose is destroyed from all the snot and tissue activity that has been going on for the past week. Its all red and soar… And I have black luggage (not bags but luggage) under my eyes. Not to mention that I have nothing to wear and the closest shops to where I live are chavtastic. Oh well, who cares? It is Q-Tip!! Ok, I need to make a move. I start in 4 hours. Have a great weekend! If you are coming down, I shall see you at the Roundhouse or at the after party. Either way, IT’S GONNA BE DOPE! Remind me to charge my camera!

I have been waiting for some sunshine in order to upload this latest podcast, since spring and sunshine was my inspiration when I made it. But after having it ready for almost 2 weeks, and no sunshine, I thought I would upload it anyway. Who knows, it might bring out the sun if you play it. Although I must admit, I did some last minute changes to it… But only because I got some new music that I thought worked perfectly with the tracks I already had. So yes, now it feels complete and I do hope you will like it as much as I do! To be fair, there are some pretty damn good songs on there. A new tune off Bullion’s latest EP “Young Heartache”, a very recent obsession from Hudson Mohawke, and some general feel good music.  So come on people, put a smile on your pretty little faces and let’s celebrate the wonderful season that goes by the name of  Spring!
