A virtual drama in a digital world…

Hello,

I’m working on something pretty god damned cool right now…

We are making a virtual drama using The Sims 3 for UK TV

We’ve created 4 awesome housemates, built them a town, turned their free will up to the max and are filming their every move….

In a week we’ve had bitch fights, late nights, infidelity and family feuds!

We are turning the footage into a TV series for Channel 4 and we want YOUR INPUT to help us make some life changing decisions for our cast!

Sound cool? Give us a LIKE on Facebook to keep up with everything that’s going on and leave us your comments.

woop woop!

Having a clear out

Hello,

Last week, whilst clearing crap off an old hard drive, I found some demos I recorded with my originals band back in 2006. One of the members went on to get signed by Sony records, toured Europe with a HUGE American pop star and had a number 1 album in Asia. Mental.

Here are some tunes what I co-wrote and played keyboards on innit bruv.

Tickling my Earholes…again

I know! 2 new music posts in one week? I must be ill (I actually have been, hence the time to blog…but i’m on the mend now thanks for asking. Yes I have lost weight actually, how kind of you to notice! No you hang up…No you!) (soz)

Anyway - Rizzle Kicks

Bit of a wank name? Yup. But ignore that as this tune is a stonker. Here are 3 facts about the R BIZZLE Sticks.

  1. They are both 19 and come from Brighton
  2. They’ve known each other since they were wee nippers (kids to everyone else)
  3. They have beef with trumpets

This is the awesome 'Down With The Trumpets' which my mate Trixie (who’s blog you can follow here) described as potentially this years LDN by Lily Allen…Big praise indeed. Lets hope it gets the push it deserves.

NEXT

Ms Dynamite ft Labrinth

Yeah that very one. As you might be aware shes been teaming up with some awesome artists and producers of late (Katy B, Zinc, Magnetic Man) and here is yet another top combo. She’s got together with Tinie Tempah’s producer Labrinth to make this amazing track, It’s called 'Neva Soft' and the production is just spot on….. I can't wait to hear Labrinth's solo album later this year.

And finallyNicola Roberts

Unless you’ve been hiding under Cheryl Coles massive hair and tears (or have no interest in what ex Girls Aloud members are up too) you’ll probably know that the ginger one from the group is about to release her debut solo single. The lead up to this release has been RIDICULOUS with various 20sec teasers dropping for the last 12 years (slight exaggeration). Well, it’s finally here and to be honest, it’s awesome. A bit Gwen Stefani mixed with Major Lazer and Daphne and Celeste. It sounds totally up to date, fresh and original. Here’s hoping the impending album stands up. This is 'Beat Of My Drum'

STOP THE TUMBLR PRESSES…..

Last minute addition to my must see bands at The Great Escape Festival is Dems. I might be bias as I work with Dan, the brains behind the tunes but ‘Lioness’ is a thing of beauty and I am 100% going to see him do his thing. You can download Lioness for FREE from Dems Bandcamp - http://dems.bandcamp.com/

Hello,

This is how Pink started her performance at the Isle of Wight Festival yesterday. I attended the last two years of the festival but not this one. I’m such a dick for not going.

A truly amazing performer and i’m not even a big fan of her music.

Bah.

Hello,

Everything Everything might be your new favourite band - they’re teetering on the edge of being mine (and I don’t deal well with change).

This is their latest single ‘Schoolin’ and very good it is too. It’s blippy, addictive and one of the best indie-ish tracks i’ve heard for bloody ages. It carries on in the same veign of their other releases 'My Keys, Your Boyfriend' and 'Photoshop Handsome'.

Here are 3 facts about the band:

  1. They met at university in the arsehole of the UK, Salford
  2. They eat a lot of bread
  3. They love Beyonce 

Listen. Shoe gaze. Enjoy.

Here’s the video for 'Islands' by The XX. It’s a beautiful video to match one of the best songs from the last few years (in my humble opinion of course).

Here are 3 facts about the band

  1. They come from south London
  2. Jamie suffers from insomnia
  3. Courtney Love is a huge fan

Listen. Indulge. Buy their album.
