Pinch punch first of the month!
We played at Werchter Festival last night in Belgium, and I can honestly say that it was one of our finest shows! Our favourite show from the year before was also in Belgium..the Belgums, Belgians? are bananas!
We stayed to watch Muse on the mainstage. I know they always win "Best Live Act" but I wondered, "Did people just vote for them just because they always win it?" - but no, they really are one of the best live bands I have seen.… Continue

We're on route to Belgium. Back on the festival runs which should be fun.
We've just driven past my house on the bus. It's always been a dream of mine to get picked up by a tourbus outside of your house...today COULD have been the day!
Before bus call, I went to the Old Blue Last in Shoreditch to see some hardcore bands. I had to leave before the headliners "Throats" but could the band "Last Witness" who I had never heard before, and they KILLED it! So so heavy, and tight… Continue

I'm in another club?! HOW did this happen?! For a guy that doesn't drink, I go out a lot. There's only so much tap water one can drink..I reckon I have saved about £10,000 on drinking water in night clubs as opposed to booze.
Tonight, its White Heat, at Madame Jo Jos. My flat mate and I are on match making duty. I thought it was going well, but as I write this, a friend of mine (who I paired up with my best friend) has come back and after them flirting all night saying he's "not her… Continue

A much needed chill day today. Didn't leave my sofa, except for coming to the club my flatmate works in (which is where I am now)
Why am I writing my blog when I should be partying hard? Well, I don't drink, so there's not really much you can do!
I'm faced with a situation. My ex girlfriend is here who owes me £100..my friends are telling me I should go and say hello, shake her hand, and when she shakes back, grab her hand and drag her to the nearest cash point..too… Continue

The Far East Movement brought their stylishly geeked out show to Venue nightclub on Granville, and they did not disappoint their skinny tie, big glasses wearing, high energy, ball capped fans. They rocked the stage like… Continue

Robyn’s new album, “Body Talk Pt. 1,” provides eight handsomely formed, near-perfect pop songs that are embedded with a casual kind of feminism. Robyn, a small, delicate-looking thirty-one-year-old Swede, is remarkably adept at producing pleasurable, accessible pop that, like some kind of… Continue

It was a sad day for England today with the football. The Germany /England football features have been huge since 1966 and apart from that day, we always seem to fail.
The day today was all about that. Oh, and sitting in the park. I came back to Hyde Park to finish up at Hard Rock Calling, though I've been asleep for hours on a bean bag in the sunshine. Tough Sunday really..
Off to go and see Paul McCartney play in a minute. I've not seen any bands today, but my dad would… Continue

I got back from Glastonbury VERY late last night and barely slept from adrenaline (that, a drunken loud flatmate and a cat who scratches my door all night)
Today has all been about Hard Rock Calling, a festival in Hyde Park. For once, it wasn't for work, well, for me, my girlfriend was DJ'ing the tent for her work, but it meant we got wristbands for the weekend! I'm all about the headliners. Jamiroqui AND Stevie Wonder!
"Deeper Underground" was one of the first singles I bought,… Continue

So we played Glastonbury. On the second biggest stage. Just after Phoenix. WHAT?!?!
It was as great as I had always imagined it to be, and at my favourite time of day at a festival, as the evening is drawing in, but the sun is out enough to still wear your shades on stage!!
We had a set of gold palm trees,our usual set, and a few more people to help us out, including 4 amazing dancers, 3 steel pan players, 2 turtle doves and Glen Gregory from Heaven 17. He came on and sang… Continue

Tokio Hotel's 2010 tour may be over, but that doesn't mean it's turning off the lights and locking up Humanoid City. Quite the contrary. Tokio Hotel just dropped a brand-new video for "Darkside Of The Sun," which is a performance video that a) fulfills your desire for another Tokio Hotel video and b)… Continue

"At its core however, it is “Dancing On My Own” that embodies the heart and soul of this mini-record; a 21st century reconfiguration of the classic discotheque record, colored by icy rapid-fire synthesizers and flawless Swede-pop production courtesy of producer, Patrik Berger. The song is the purest definition of sad disco, as well as the logical artistic progression after the success of her previous tear-jerking stormer, “With Every Heartbeat.” For this song alone, the… Continue

"Opening with "Don't Fu**king Tell Me What To Do," an amusing litany of buzz-killers drizzled over minimalist beats, the set really shines when she teams up with M.I.A.'s old partner-in-crime, Diplo, on the slinky "Dancehall Queen," and Norwegian producers Röyksopp for the simmering synth-pop diss… Continue

“Body Talk Pt. 1” (Konichiwa/Cherrytree): A-
Fembots need love, too. And they need to “initiate slut mode” when the mood strikes. So says cheeky Swedish pop diva Robyn, who can get you tee-hee-ing as you work up a sweat on the dance floor. Her eight-song EP, the first of three planned for release this year, begins with the percolating club banger “Don’t (expletive) Tell Me What to Do,” which offers a laundry list of vices and guilt-inducing woes. “Dancehall Queen,” a collaboration with… Continue

Los Angeles' Koreatown sensation Far East Movement is doing it’s best rendition of producing music that’s purely fun again. The best way to simply put it is “feel-good” music. FM's beats have a light funky vibe, and the lyrics exhibit a care-free attitude that's frequently heard in that of Lil Wayne or even a onetime Movement collaborator/DXnext fellow, Wiz Khalifa. With their latest single “Like A G6” approaching two million YouTube plays, following last year's “Girls On The Dance… Continue

Todays blog is all about Spark aka Jess Morgan.
I went to see her play at the Macbeth in East London tonight after seeing her supporting Marina and the Diamonds the other week, and she absolutely blew me away.
She has the sweetest voice, almost like a sweet teenage non haggard Amy Winehouse? Actually that's probably a really bad comparison, but never mind.
Every song could be a Top 10 in the UK, especially this tune called "Scream". Check her out… Continue
