Soil & Pimp Sessions Koko 9th july

Good morning my darlings! I am pleased to say that I am almost done with my musical “Love Letter”. Will try to record it tonight so you have some nice tunes to listen to this weekend. A quick reminder for all of you music lovers, the Japanese awesomeness that is Soil & “PIMP” Sessions will be playing at Koko next Thursday, 9th July. They are one of the most amazing bands I have ever seen live, so you should definitely head down and check them out! And if that wasn’t enough, one of my favourite Japanese DJ’s Toshio Matsuura will be spinning some tunes, alongside the one and only Gilles Peterson, and the mighty bPm. Do I really need to say anything more to convince you of the fact that this will be an amazing night?! It is being arranged by the lovely Brownswood crew and the cool cats at KSPACE. I can also reveal that Toshio Matsuura will be joining us downstairs next week at Life (on the 8th July), so if you can’t wait until the 9th, make sure you come downstairs for the pre-party!

And if one week is still too much to wait, I suggest you head down to Herbal tomorrow evening for the Doctor’s Orders 4th Birthday bash. The line up is amazing, including personal favourites such as Paul White, Guilty Simpson, DJ Vadim and Phat Kat. If there is one party you should check out this weekend, I would say this is the one and only. And if you can’t make it tomorrow, remember that the Spin Doctors are having a special (FREE) Birthday BBQ at Cargo on Sunday the 12th, from 1pm ’til midnight.

Right, that is enough event pimpin from my side! I will be back a bit later with some other news, but now I should perhaps do some work. x

So what can I say, Life was on fire last night! I don’t think I have ever been down there when it has been that packed. The music was amazing, Souleance absolutely smashed it (you should really go and get their EP Le Monde), DJ Shuya Okino from Kyoto Jazz Massive played some banging tunes, and the mood in general was on top with people dancing and drinking and having a good time. Bumped into some people I haven’t seen for a while, like Simbad (who made a great mix for Brainfeeder a couple of weeks ago called The Supercosmic Revolution Vol.1 that you can download here if you haven’t already!), Dayo (!!!) and some other nice Brownswood peeps. And if that wasn’t enough, I now really want to get myself an MPC!
