Duchess at Bob Rocks TONIGHT

So I’ve been laying low on the DJ front, gathering new music to blow you away.

Catch me tonight at Bob Rocks for indie, electro, dream pop and disco fun!

Calling all South African friends. Meet me at Bob Rocks in Greenside from 9pm πŸ™‚

Here’s some dream pop from Russ Manning, the former Twin Shadow bassist, to make you feel like my set has already started πŸ™‚

DUCHESS plays again

So my DJ’ing alter ego takes to the decks tomorrow at Bob Rocks in Greenside.


I’m playing from 11:30 – 1:30am so that means 2 hours of musical happiness for anyone who decides to drop by πŸ˜‰

I recently facebooked some of my favourite hiphop songs from when I was going through my hiphop phase at 16, they went down a treat so I’ve got a 30 minute hiphop blast from the past planned. Playing songs like this:

Until I hit some of the best new music out there:

and some classics inbetween:

Free hugs for anyone who comes by and remember if you dance too hard Friday is the following day and if you take the day off you get an extra long weekend


PS. My life is really great right now and that usually means I dance my whole set – it’s totally worth attending to watch me dance badly πŸ™‚


So my DJing alter ego has a busy week planned.

Tuesday: I’ve got to reply to my very first interview! For a lovely blog but i won’t spoil the surprise πŸ™‚

Wednesday: I’m DJing Asseblief’s Pop Up Vintage Sale


Thursday: I’m rocking out at Bob Rocks – my local

Friday: I’ll be trying to catch Kongos (a USA/UK/SA band) in between playing you songs to make you dance.


And Saturday I have my first DUCHESS requested photoshoot (in a studio and all) before I DJ my very first corporate Xmas party.

My heart is spilling over with a mixture of happiness, excitement and too much strawberry liquorice.

I’m feeling pretty lame because I’m so super happy πŸ™‚

I am as always a contradiction wrapped in excellent music taste πŸ˜›

Duchess DJ’s at Bob Rocks and likes it

So tomorrow night (Thursday to people who don’t count the days til the weekend) I’ll be DJing from 11:30pm at Bob Rocks in Greenside.


The usual mix cd’s will be given out to people who remind me they’re in my bag. But very exciting news for people who don’t live in Johannesburg I’ll be making a mixtape for download on my Duchess DJ Soundcloud account.


I really should have been doing that from the beginning but now my head is clear and I’ll be spoiling you with mixes that will hopefully bring you joy.

I’ve got alot of love for you so feel free to like my DJ page

Duchess Eats Cake and Dj’s

Dj’ing Thursday at Bob Rocks, times are a mystery to this cake eating lady but here’s a present for you. My favourite song of the day : The Paper Kites – Woodland. It’s so pretty I thought you should be able to download it.


Feel free to like my dj page…I like you πŸ™‚


DJ’ing Saturday at Bob Rocks

Hi y’all

So I’m dj’ing Saturday night with Christian Henn of Vampire 9000/Fulka fame.


It should be epic and amazing. I have absolutely no idea how to dj with someone and then what genre of music we’ll be rocking out to but yay for getting to hang out with my friends and play pretty music.


Hearts on fire!!!

VHS or Beta – I Found A Reason

So I’m djing at Bob Rocks on Saturday night – 2nd of July 2011.

I’ll be playing this song and anything not folk. Although my heart beats for folk my feet dance to indie.

Come stalk me , hang out, eat ribs and drink. It’ll be the bestest!



Twee! The genre that snuck up on me…

So I recently got asked to dj a Twee party. I was like WTF is Twee? So I asked Riaan who had asked me to play. He sent through a list of bands and I had an ‘Ohhhhhhh’ moment when I realised I actually listened to twee but was stumped by the genre name. Totally out of the loop as usual πŸ™‚

Flash forward a day or two before the party. Riaan being a sweetheart sends through an email to all the dj’s being super genre specific (I’d probably made him fear my set list), he clarifies the meaning of twee as cute pop to which Ben replies ‘I certainly hope weΒ didn’tΒ ask anyone to play who doesn’t know what twee is’.

Que blush and silent mortification πŸ™‚

It was pretty funny and the night went really well.

Those boys know how to throw a party.

Here’s a twee song just for you…

Later Operator by All Girl Summer Fun Band

Next dj set is on the 16th of June 2011 at Bob Rocks. It’s a folk set which means I have more music than I know what to do with. YAY!
