The best music review ever

March 27, 2012


All music reviews should be this cool, although getting rap tracks reviewed by kids who know what rap is might be a suggestion for next time. Still yet another reason why I still love Vice magazine! Advertisements

Diplo does Azealia Banks

March 26, 2012


I’m working on a pretty serious article. You know about food insecurity, super poverty and the intractability of the conditions that shape it all. When stuck in such a mindset I kinda feel an urgent need to shake things up a little, restore the balance by injecting a random element from the other end of […]

They don’t make ’em like this anymore

March 17, 2012


This is a bit of a random post but I’m listening to one of Gilles Peterson’s farewell Worldwide shows on iPlayer right now. He’s just played this track by Wookie which I’m compelled to share – it brings back so many memories! When I was a teenager I was mad about a book called Last Night […]

Vagabundos at Ushuaia

July 15, 2011


Ouch – I’m still hurting from last night even though I made it home by 11pm.

Fenech-Soler performed – they were good… sorry, as I’m writing I’m realising that this is starting to […]

July 12, 2011


Has Ibiza seen anything like it? I don’t think so. Last Thursday’s event at the newly opened Ushuaia hotel in Playa d’en Bossa was a star-spangled affair which is likely to have been the highlight of the 2011 season. On the bill were Usher (in his Ibiza debut), The Wire’s Idris Elba (launching his […]

Ibiza Global Radio app

April 27, 2011


I have a theory that Ibiza regulars can be divided into those that prefer Ibiza Sonica and those that love Ibiza Global Radio. I have to confess that I’m crazy for Ibiza Global Radio although I do love the guys at Sonica. It totally is the sound of my summers – driving through open roads with the […]
