Sunday Rundown: Editing, Composing and Partying!



This has been such an unbelievably tiring week!  I’ve had 20 hour edit days and have basically been functioning on zero sleep for 7 days…. However, so much has been achieved this week and I’m so so excited to share some of the developments very soon!  Sign up to my mailing list to get an exclusive preview of my next video!

Monday:  I set my goals for November, which always really helps me to focus on my career and visualise where I want to be.  I then had production class as I always do on Mondays, which was awesome as we were learning different sampling techniques.  I was also starting the plans for some upcoming videos, which is super exciting!

Tuesday: I played golf in the morning and caught up on some college work.  I also sent off some Spotify playlist submissions for my latest release, Take It All.  A lot of my day was spent tidying up the ‘studio’ from the Body of Mine shoot…. glitter for dayssss!

Wednesday:  After starting editing last week, Wednesday was day 2 of the Body of Mine edit, and it was a long one (finished at 3am)!  We made some good progress, getting the Intro, Verses and Pre-Choruses sorted.  I also had my Electronic Music Composition class in the evening, which was really fun as we were learning about drums and groove, which is probably the area I struggle with the most.

Thursday: Day 3 of the edit…. finished all but the choruses, which was a little frustrating as we were hoping to have finished completely!  In the evening I went to my golf presentation evening and won myself a cheeky trophy, which was a nice surprise!

Of course, I also sorted my Thursday Twenty for the week!

  1. Burn Slow by Jaira Burns
  2. Flare Guns  by Quinn XCII & Chelsea Cutler – LOVE this!  One of my favs this week… super catchy and it is definitely a topic everyone can identity with – the urge to call an ex at 2:00am is always strong!
  3. Only With You by Cyn
  4. Astronaut by Mansionair
  5. I’ll Be There by King Henry
  6. When I Was Young by MO – Great track!  I love MO as she’s always so left of centre and really unique.  This song has a really interesting structure and there are so many climaxes!
  7. Ready Yet by Sasha Sloan
  8. Losing Any Sleep by Elle Watson
  9. Silence (Sluggo x Loote Remix) by Mike Posner & Labrinth – Another favourite!  Such a great track… the production is gorgeous and the two voices really work and bring something different to the verses.  I’m really feeling a lot of Mike Posner material these days!
  10. I Feel U (feat. Rachel Salvit) 
  11. cortado by anton.
  12. Honest by Nataliya
  13. Wolves by Selena Gomez & Marshmello – I just love Selena and I’m a big Marshmello fan too, so this was a great combo for me!  I really think the softness of Selena’s voice is very effective in this song, and the chorus is extremely catchy!
  14. Better by BANKS – I genuinely think no one loves BANKS as much as me!  I went to see her last week and she was predictably amazing.  Better was one of my favourite tracks she did on the night as performance was just flooded with emotion.. it was pretty special to witness!
  15. Lonely by NAV
  16. California Heaven (Medasin Remix) by JAHKOY & Schoolboy Q
  17. end by Jeremy Zucker
  18. Buzzin by Alina Baraz
  19. Badi Boum (feat. Tsunami) by Felix Snow
  20. The Shine by ayokay & Chelsea Cutler


Friday:  I spent five hours composing in the MIDI lab at college and working on a new track!  I feel like I spend so much time promoting myself and contacting people for gigs, sending my music off places etc that I never get to actually make music anymore!  So it was just bliss to be back in that mindset and be creative!  After that it was back to editing the Body Of Mine video…. Day 3 and it didn’t end until 7am on Saturday!  Crazy stressful and we still didn’t finish!  We still had to colour grade and fix a couple of bits in the Middle 8.


Saturday:  Final edit day for Body of Mine!  Finally finished at 4:30pm after another four hours of editing and the release that came with the final export was just euphoric…. such a weight of my shoulder!  The video is now ready for the release next week 🙂 Can’t wait to share!


I also celebrated Bonfire Night with my brother and best friend and then heading into town for the Warehouse Project!  Me and Abi saw Gorgon City on their Kingdom Tour at the Albert Hall, along with Disciples, Riton and Danny Howard.  It was such a great night and just what I needed after a stressful week of editing!

Sunday:  Dinner with the family for my grandad’s birthday and a bit of much need chill time!  I need to actually sleep!

Thank you so much for reading as usual and remember to sign up to my mailing list!





Sunday Rundown: New Video, Portugal and Ingrosso.



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!


Not Stupid Anymore

Official Music Videos

As Not Stupid Anymore was released in April, I felt like a summery, happy video would be really perfect for this track as we were approaching hotter months of the year!  For this reason, we decided to shoot in Portugal and create something with really vibrant colours and a positive energy.  The end result was a ‘flipbook’ type of effect, with lots of snapshots played in quick succession, giving the feel of holiday memories.  The pictures were interspersed with performance videos of me in different coloured bikini tops and pop-ups of the key lyrics in the song.  We focused our scenes on the most quintessentially summery things like sangria, the beach, the pool and partying to create the most fun snapshots we could!  Also, as the song is about love and girl power, I couldn’t help but add some heart shaped sunglasses and a heart shaped rubber ring!
