Blog Entry 17: Radio 1 Rinsing 'Saved' and Cool Threads


I don't want to sound like some glowstick clutching - teenage raver but, I'm buzzing!
I've just had another daytime Radio 1 play of 'Saved' by the lovely Fearne Cotton.
As if that wasn't enough, I also had some love from Jo Whiley this weekend. Chuffed.

See, its a tough old business this
music stuff. For everyone of me there are a thousand odd, fighting for airplay in order to be heard and hopefully blow up.

We've been working really hard for months and months to get to this point. A massive thank you to Annie Mac, Kissy Sellout, Reggie Yates, Sinden, Dermot O'leary and anyone else who supported my EP's. The biggest thank you of-course goes to all of you! This wouldn't possible if you weren't all talking, buying and coming to gigs :)

Hmm what else has been going on.... I went to see Damien Marley and Nas perform last week at the Hammersith Apollo. They were amazing. Probably the most bass I've ever experienced in a venue.

I think thats where I caught this serious bout of man flu. Its obviously really annoying but, at the same time really positive for music making. I miss the days when I had the time to write and produce 2 tracks a week, so when i'm ill - thats just what I do.

I've been working on a remix for the beautiful,
multi - talented Lauren Pritchard. If you haven't heard of her, you need to go here: www.laurenpritchard.com
She has one of those voices that make you stop doing whatever you're doing, go catch her live and you will not be disappointed. I'll post the remix up very soon for your listening pleasure.

I got word the other day that i'll be flying to NYC soon to play a few gigs!. I'm one of those people who googles everything, call it a thirst for knowledge. I even started planing on what I'll be wearing.
I'm really into this vibe at the moment.

Freaking cool or what?! I love clothes almost as much as I love music.
Although, I've come to realize that what I think looks fly doesn't always go down well with some people in Hackney. Being called a bounty from across the street (black on the outside white on the inside) used to get get on my nerves but now it just makes me laugh out loud.
Life to me is about self expression, art & music. I'll flaunt and explore all these till the cows come home! What do you think?

Anywho, I better go. I'm busy preparing for Underage Festival this week! Are you coming?
Its gonna be BIG.

Catch up soon!!
