Chromeo Gig & Afterparty

I went to see Chromeo live last night with my friend Julia and my buddy who owns Backyard Records, the label that put them out. They played a great set at the Kentish Town Forum, ending with my favorite track Night By Night. Afterwards we headed to the afterparty at Le Baron where the band hit the decks and DJ'd and gig sponsors Bushmills provided free whisky mixers and cocktails getting everybody suitably drunk for the occassion. Much fun was had. Check out some photos I took and listen to Canadian DJ U-Tern's remix of Night By Night below:

EMA and Zola Jesus at Le Baron London

I went to Le Baron on Tuesday night and was pleasantly surprised to find that EMA and Zola Jesus were both performing live. Browns were having an after party for a press event that they had hosted earlier that I was supposed to go to but unfortunately missed, but the live bands and free Absinthe cocktails more than made up for this and I had a great time. EMA played a particularly fun set, including a cover of Add It Up by Violent Femmes, one of my favorites! I spoke to EMA frontwoman Erika Anderson after they had finished and told her how much I loved Red State by her former band Gowns and she seemed intensely astounded that I had heard it and flattered by my comment, anyway, she was sweet and the whole night was fun so I give a big thumbs up to everyone involved! Thanks to ChiChi and the Le Baron team, we love you! Check out some photos I took, as well as a shot of me looking rather wasted watching EMA (oh dear) and listen to EMA & Gowns further below:

Shabazz Palaces

I went to see Shabazz Palaces live at the Jazz Cafe in London two nights ago and boy oh boy was it an amazing show! Support came from the brilliant Seattle MC duo of Stasia Irons and Catherine Harris-White aka THEESatisfaction who also joined Shabazz Palaces on stage toward the end of their set. In case you're not familiar with Shabazz Palaces yet they are a hip hop collective fronted by Ishmael Butler, previously of seminal hip hop group Digable Planets, and multi-instrumentalist Tendai Maraire. Their debut album Black Up just dropped on Sub Pop and I can't say enough good things about them. Please do listen to Black Up and spread the Shabazz love. Check out some photos and a video I took at the Jazz Cafe gig plus listen to one of their EP tracks as well:

Schon Magazine

Last week Schon Magazine threw a party to celebrate the success of past content and the positive feedback of their 14th issue at the Music Room in Mayfair. I went along and had a mingle, you can check out a few photos I took below. Schon is a bi-monthly magazine available in print and you can also check out their official website HERE.

Wyld Wednesday with Youth Kills

Last night at the W was certainly fun! A big thanks to Andy & James Taylor (Youth Kills) and Peter Wilson for DJing with me and everyone who came down. We even got to rage with the lads from Rage Against the Machine! Suffice to say I'm a little tuckered out today but already looking forward to next week. Here are a few pics from the night, we'll have plenty more very soon though from our guest photographer Nadia Hammoud who documented the whole evening:

Le Baron London

One of Paris' hottest clubs, Le Baron, has just touched down in London and last night they threw a little party ahead of their official opening tonight. We certainly had fun. Having DJ'd for Le Baron already in Paris I knew this place would be great and it is. Tucked away on Old Burlington Street I have no doubt this will be a hot spot for those in the know.

Blow PR Press Day

Exposure Press Day

Here are a few things I saw at the Exposure press day, check out the Doc Martens creepers and the Nike range for Liberty of London! We also really appreciated the lunch buffet, the food was great and much needed.
