Tackling the wardrobe


I decided to clean out my wardrobe as I've been meaning to do it for a loooooooong time!


Ah boy....it was a long afternoon, but I got there in the end!

I saw these a couple months ago, but wasn't so keen on them.
They have grown on me a lot!

Camden Crawl: The Wrigley’s 5 ‘The Nightjar’ hits Camden Crawl this year




Camden Crawl: The Wrigley’s 5 ‘The Nightjar’ hits Camden Crawl this year
Ever wondered what it would be like to be stranded in total darkness and relying solely on the sounds around you to get out alive? Well, this is exactly the challenge that Wrigley’s 5 will be setting over May Bank Holiday weekend.
Crawling, feeling and listening your way through a dying spacecraft, this will be the real-life version of the newly launched App from Wrigley’s 5, The Nightjar, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch.
Bringing to life a true sensory experience, guests of Camden Crawl will be asked to enter the Nightjar and make their way through the pitch black maze with a few surprises on the way.
So, if you are feeling brave enough then make sure you join us at The Roundhouse, but be warned as you may not be the only one in there. Scared yet?

They say, there are just certain things in life that were not meant to understand. 

I will never understand that!

Equipement investment......

A good watch .........

To Be Hip, Gifted & Black PT.1


Part 1: “Identity vs Art"

I found this very interesting to watch, a group of panelist discuss dilemmas that artists of colour face in the industry of art.
Being a musician, sometimes I find it hard having to hold back on certain things. There are a lot of things that the world needs to hear/see but  I have learnt to gradually do this step by step.


Being Black, you automatically get put in a box of "Oh, so she's urban" just the whole labeling thing annoys me, they expect me to act a certain way because of my Black skin.....it's just the ignorance of people.


Shut up and let the music do the talking......

Have a watch....

Summer investment.....

The SUN was good to us......
Chan, I don't know how you ended up on all the pictures.......



















Why does it look like I have a cigarette in my hand??
On the horizon......

Surprise, surprise, Couldn't find it in your eyes, But I'm sure it's written all over my face.......

This song seems to be the soundtrack to my days.......

Heartshape me.......

Someone brought some heartshaped homemade waffles into the office yesterday....my mind exploded...tasted so good!
Look at what I found bummie!
Just for you Carlz x

One of those afternoons where you just don’t want to do anything
*Shout out to Mr. Mills in the back!


On the horizon......

16/04/11 Taslim Martin (Sculpture Portrait)

Ok, so last month I was heading off to a studio session if Notting Hill...but as always; my car was running low on petrol. I had to stop off at Morrison's Petrol station in Peckham....blah blah blah.

Anyway, as I've gone into pay...this guy approaches me and asks if I would be interested in being a model for a portrait. I thought 'This is so random, is this guy mad?'

He then goes on to tell me what he did (figurative sculpture to furniture designed) I must say, I was interested........but wasn’t convinced!!!! I needed to see more.

He then gave me his card and told me to check out his work for more information. He was real adamant that he would love to get me down to his studio to construct a sculptured portrait on my face....I told him that I would definitely check out his site....and that was that!

So after I finished my studio session, I did a bit of googling on him and I was completely blown away.









So I decided to go for it, it also said that he loved my music too :)) *Thumbs up!
I and Chaz went down to his studio to take some pictures for him to start working on a piece. I should be going back in a couple of weeks for 2 hour sessions to work on the featured details.

Here are some pictures that were taken on the day.



Soon come!

Expect it, but you dont have to except it

As an up and coming artist, people tend to think we should ACCEPT the struggle we go through trying to make it.
EXPECT it, but don't ACCEPT it.
We are WORTH more!!

Miss MPC / DIY

I was on the search for a MPC1000 stand, seeing as I want to incorporate playing it in my sets more. I needed find something solid for it to rest on.


Quite a few people recommended the Quik Lok QL-400 stand...I looked at the price and thought....WOAH!!!  £97 for a stand?? It looks nice and has got wheels, but na ah!


I wouldn't feel good parting with that money. So I was doing a little research and came across a stand that someone had built.


I mean it has no wheels but it could work, its just a matter of finding something for it to go on.....Uh *thinking

I see what you don't see.....
