Usher, David Guetta, Ludacris and stars at Ushuaia Ibiza

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 7 Wallace project) and DJ David Morales. The special guest turned out to be none other than DJ David Guetta but even better were special guest appearances from Taio Cruz and Ludacris.

The night was unbelievable, the production – out of this world and Usher? Well, I know understand why people call him the hardest working man in R&B. His energy was amazing – he gave the performance everything he’s got.

What was even cooler to see was what a great team he has around him – all dedicated to the star but super smart, talented and best of all polite, no diva histrionics to report at all

Map – the coolest club night in London?

Map Club London

“He’s the king of the LA hipsters.” Apparently that’s all I needed to know when I asked how one of MAP’s founders who to describe DJ, blogger, label-owner and promoter extraordinaire Franki Chan.

The dude behind Iheartcomix is set to explode onto the London scene this Bank Holiday weekend as he headlines for the debut of MAP, a new club concept that’s set to make a big impact on the capital’s underground club scene.

Itinerant club night MAP brings you acts that are defining the trends on both this side of the pond and the other. Over four nights, the club travels to intimate but edgy venues in north, east, west and central London (I guess south doesn’t count).

It’s very cool, and very hip; plus the Bank Holiday weekend means you have no excuse for missing it!

Nat Weller – a chip off the old block

I love Paul Weller. You Do Something To Me is one of the most beautiful songs ever, definitely a contender a first wedding dance list (very square to have such things in mind, I’ll admit).

So I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that is son Nat is so hot. So I start googling him to find out more then stumble across a clip of him on YouTube. In the space of three seconds I went from mad lust to complete disillusionment.  

Video lays bare all your flaws. If a picture is worth a thousand words then video surely equates to a million pictures.
