Have a good weekend…
Well..this has been a fun packed week.. Friday night I was on BBC6 Music introducing some tracks that I like..and talking about my vlog and then early Saturday morning I went down to Rough Trade East for Record Store Day to interview the one and only Chilly Gonzales. I’ve been wanting to see him [perform] for quite a while and I’m ecstatic to announce that it was an amusingly mind blowing show…on stage Chilly has both a mix of arrogance and charm…which he can get away with… because.. he’s that good. And he knows it. Weirdly enough – after my interview I came home to edit (that’s not the weird bit) – I had Britain Got’s Talent on in the background and was shocked to see Marawa the Amazing from Chilly’s video ‘Never Stop’ pop up as a ‘hopeful’.. nice to see a few acknowledgements on twitter campaigning for her…! ‘A Chilly Day’ you might say. Now please check out our interview here with the man himself!!!

As I said I was on BBC6 Music on Friday night – you know.. just introducing a few tracks.. as you do.. for a new show that pulls in music that’s mainly being hyped up online – it was really nice to introduce one of my favourite bands Tim Ten Yen. If you missed it and would like to listen.. I come in at about 1 hour 21 secs:

Hey! Guess what people!? I’m through to round 3 for Charlie Sheen’s Tigerblood Internship… where the prize is to go work with him for the summer…. there’s no guessing how many people have made it through to the third round.. it could be thousands. Or it could be millions. So with a tight deadline looming – I thought I would rise to the challenge and try and create a #winning video. But I couldn’t do it alone. Luckily after some heavy linkedin networking last month I met a bright and capable Cameraman called James Littmann who ventured out into the great wilderness of London to help me film.
The brief was to keep the video under 2 minutes – be serious, professional and tackle one of three questions. I have tackled number 3: How would you advise a candidate running for public office to leverage social media in his or her campaign for election?
And so along with a lot of kind people on the streets of London this is what we came up with..ps – I am terribly sorry about some of the audio – it seems my microphone is on it’s last legs.. and also…sorry for my Queen impression.
Please share this with your friends! And vote for Becki!

This weekend I caught up with 17 year old electro 8 bit/chip tune producer Oliver Sabin of Unicorn Kid – and the undefinable duo – The Kemistry. You couldn’t get two artists further afield in terms of genres.. check out the interviews and some of their music here.. on www.ohdearyme dot com. I couldn’t resist saying that.
