Let me introduce some of my dear friends from Twitter.
I apologise in advance for the severe lack of glitz, glam & glitter…

If your name is not mentioned, please don’t get offended.
The list is already long, but should probably still be extended.

I want to start off with Juslikemusic who I have known for a year,
This Saturday is his bday so please head over and give him a big cheer.

On my own birthday I had the pleasure of meeting
CubikMusikgunniessdj, Soul_Identity and Greymatterbeats
I can honestly say that that day was one of my life’s best birthday treats.

I am blessed to have the peeps that show me love and are there to support,
Friendly creatures like paulriley1982futureancient, bmxkris, bkcl, EL3G, Dooks13, onthebuzz, thefunkhouse, and bluevibestudio

Then I have the overly talented people who I simply just admire
People like MrBeatnick, BullionNess, The_Real_Semtek, illum_sphere, the8bitch, daddydark and of course, Mr. Scrimshire

Not to mention some of the bloggers that know their shit and never disappoint,
Fellow writers and music lovers like putmeonit, OndaSonora, nutriot and on_point

Oh, and I need big up the boys that make me giggle, and not just djhoop,
But also his mates, thenextmen and matt_the_good

Before I round this up I’d like to send some extra love to LaidBackRadio
Not only for the musical inspiration, but for letting me do a show.

Good afternoon my friends!

I hope you are all fine this lovely Thursday afternoon. If you didn’t come down on Tuesday night to check out DJ Mitsu The Beats, I’ll have you know that you missed a fantastic night. It was the first time I ever had the pleasure to hear him play, and it was magical! I spent most of the night with my eyes closed, dancing away to all the amazing tunes & beats he was dropping. Didn’t get much sleep, so I was feeling rather rough yesterday, but it was worth it!

While I was sitting and waiting to be able to go get some lunch, I found out about this cool competition over at Spine Magazine where you could email them and get the chance to win Paul White‘s latest LP “The Strange Dreams Of Paul White“. The competition was 2 days old, so I didn’t expect to even be considered for it. However, with a spare 5 minutes on my hands, I thought “what the fuck, why not…” and decided to email them anyway. I started writing the email, and realised I had no idea what I was meant to put in it. Being a bit tired and in my usual “Orsi mood” I decided to send them a little poem that went like this:

“The Strange Dreams Of Paul White” is so fresh and raw,
People should buy the album, and not just listen to “Cheese Special & A Draw”.
Every time I listen to Paul’s tunes, my heart skips a beat,
And I find it very difficult to sit still in my seat.
The way he sampled Lyn Collins vocals on “Waiting For Time” makes me smile,
But what I love most about his music is that it’s so versatile.
This LP is definitely The Composers Comeback,
Because Mr White has all the qualities that other beat-makers lack!

After having a good little giggle to myself and thinking “these people probably gonna think Im crazy”, I set off to have some lunch. I get back in the office, and to my very big surprise, I have an email waiting for me from one of the editors, saying that I have won a copy! Needless to say, I jumped out of my seat screaming like a little girl! Not only did that make my entire day, BUT THE ALBUM IS AMAZING! And I can’t wait to have my “real” copy, with the pillow case album cover and everything.

If you haven’t got this in your collection, I URGE YOU TO GET IT.

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!…
