I’ve been a bit quiet for the last couple of weeks due to being on holiday in Portugal! It was great to get away for a while and let off some steam, especially as I saw some great DJs whilst I was there! Although I spent the week not really working, my new video to Deja Vu did premiere this week, which was awesome! Instead of my day by day Rundown I’m just going to go over my highlights of the last two weeks!
Filming Live Lounge videos: Just before I went to Portugal I filmed some live lounge style videos of four of my original songs. We did the loop pedal versions of my songs, which only people who have seen me perform live will have seen before, so I’m very excited to share those soon!
Brunch at Purobeach: One of my favourite days of the holiday… chilled deep house vibes with a daytime pool party! Such a beautiful pool with an amazing DJ and food and drinks! Most of this week’s Thursday Twenty tracks were taken from what I heard at this party!
Seville: I took my best friend to Seville for her (belated) birthday present and it was such a beautiful city! We went to see the Alcazar Palace as it has featured in Game of Thrones and we had such a great tapas lunch in a local restaurant. We spent the rest of the day wandering around the city which was lovely but slightly too hot at 45 degrees Celsius!
Ingrosso at Bliss: Whilst we were in Portugal we went out everyday but this had to be one of the best nights we had. Ingrosso was so good but his support, Salvatore Ganacci, was even better as he was a real character and really entertaining to watch!
Deja Vu Premiere: The video for my third song off the Experiments EP dropped on Wednesday on the blog, ‘Musicandotherstories’ and on YouTube… I’m really happy to be able to share it! This is the most dancey and summery song from the EP so it seemed like the perfect time to share the video, when I was on holiday myself! Check it out!
Boat trip to the islands: The second part of my friend’s birthday present was a trip to four of the islands in the Algarve, including Deserta Island. I loved seeing the different islands and doing something I hadn’t done before in Portugal. My favourite island was Farol as we found an amazing beach bar with a party atmosphere and awesome sangria!
Claptone at Lick: Lick is the newest club in Vilamoura and it’s absolutely amazing! It really reminded me of the clubs in Miami but I actually preferred it! The first night we went, we were there to see Claptone, who I have seen before at the Warehouse Project. I knew he was good, but in that unbelievable venue he was even better! Such a fab night!
Dinner at my favourite restaurant and then Black Coffee at Lick: My favourite restaurant in Portugal is called Pequeno Mundo and I have been going since I was a child, so it was so nice to finish the holiday with great food there! Then we headed to Lick for our last night to see Black Coffee, who was awesome too! Made some German friends and spent our final holiday day in great company, which was thr perfect end to a great trip1 Regretted not going to bed slightly the next morning in the aiport though, when I felt like I was from the walking dead!
First match of the season at Old Trafford: A trip to Old Trafford for Manchester United’s first game of the season numbed the holiday blues a little bit, especially with a 4-0 win!
