SOUL post: Foodies Unite

Hey guys,

So yesterday I was lucky enough to go to the Foodies Festival Feast at Battersea park for FREE! I was lucky enough to win two tickets via Wholefoods Market .I don't usually enter competitions let alone win so I was ├╝ber happy when I received the email saying I was one of the lucky winners!

I decided to take my mum, who deserved a nice outing, she was my partner in crime for the day.

We began browsing the various stalls looking for a bite to eat. As soon as mum saw the Caribbean food, she opted for it! She got a huge plate of curry goat, rice & peas, jerk chicken, coleslaw and festival all for £8! The company is called Deli Jerk. I opted for Chicken Pad Thai from Bang Wok Thai, same price but not the same taste an authenticity of the Caribbean. I was not impressed.

After lunch we then had drinks and enjoyed the performances that were on stage. There were also cooking and drinks theatres where one cook learn how to mix the perfect mojito for instance or learn the art of being a master chocolatier.

After enjoying the entertainment at the man-made beach we went in search of one of our favourite vegan cake bakery. Global fusion. I managed to also buy an ice cream cone- honeycomb I believe.

SONG post: New Single Alert

Hi guys,

More music for you!

Producer Travis Stuart aka Machinedrum, whose tracks have been used as a basis for Azaelia Banks tracks such as the hit 1991, is dropping a new single Body Touch. It is the B-side of the first single from Machinedrum‘s new album Vapor City.

He recently released a second, critically acclaimed EP with Sepalcure, a project with  Praveen Sharma from New York, and he is also constantly touring with JETS, his drum 'n' bass inspired glitch-hop outfit with Warp's Jimmy Edgar.

This track is from his first album signed to Ninja Tune and is quite slow bpm with a tinge of Junglism along with the looped vocals.

Stream the single by clicking the link below, and tell me what you think.

Turn up the bass to on this one!


SOUL POST: I'm Back !!!

Hi guys, It's been so long since I've blogged, but I'm back!

 Just last week I got back from the most exciting and fun trip ever to St Lucia, and I can tell you I am in love with the island. What was meant to be two weeks away with my friend to play carnival, turned out to be a month long trip of a lifetime. Time to explore, let loose, and rejuvenate. I loved it SO much that I extended. My friend and I both did. In the last week, my mother even joined us, and she too now shares our love of the island. If any of you out there are deliberating on taking the plunge and going on holiday, do it. I think its well deserved and a nice long break away to recharge the batteries is a must.

 Below are some pictures of my trip away. x
