So apparently my underfed stomach hasย resulted in an inability to party for long periods :/

But yoh did I party while I was DJing! Originally booked for a 40 minute slot …high five universe…got asked to play 1hr30. HAPPY DAYS!



Gosh it’s almost too funny! I literally lasted 2 hours (including the 1hr30 set time) at the festival before I sort the comfort of my couch…then this happened and I learnt aย valuable lesson ๐Ÿ˜ฆ there is such a thing as too much butter! SAD FACE x 2





Good news for people who like festivals and people who like my taste in music ๐Ÿ™‚

Last Dinosaurs hit South African shores – September 2013

So I’ve been booked to DJ at Last Dinosaurs show in Johannesburg.

Please excuse me while I scream …I needed to get that out the way, I hope you understand ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, moving on swiftly…

I’ve been the biggest Last Dinosaurs fan since I first blogged about them on March 2nd, 2012.

Here’s the event:


RSVP and come watch me geek out *cough* and DJ

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s some dream pop from Russ Manning, the former Twin Shadow bassist, to make you feel like my set has already started ๐Ÿ™‚

Someone blogged about me :)

So if you read this article all the way to the bottom you’ll see Duchess (my DJing alter ego) described as a ‘sweetheart’. Does happiness look like a metallic kiss? Today it does!

So nice to be the blogged about (COUGH! I consider this to be my most famous moment) and not blogging. I’m going to put my feet up and soak in the fame ๐Ÿ™‚

Come to the event by the way…I’m notorious for being way too friendly and talking about music until people pretend someone is calling them but on a plus side I tend to hand out my mix cds after the show


I’m DJing this amazing party on Saturday! It’s extra special because the line up is insanely amazing!

On Saturday the 12th, Cool Your Jets unveil their latest creation, “METALLIC KISS”, the new music video from Joburg dance-darlings THE FROWN! To celebrate, we’ve hand-picked a super-team of live acts and DJs from the bleeding heart of the Joburg underground!

Live love from:


My favourite cover by Eve Rakow – the voice behind The Frown

Christian Henn of Fulka fame’s solo project

Here’s a Fulka song to appreciate…

Craig Durrant drummer of Desmond and The Tutus’ solo project

Here’s the new Desmond track to appreciate…

Plus DJ romance with:



AKA SlightlySingle blogger …me ๐Ÿ™‚


First acts start at 9PM.

Metallic Kiss debuts at midnight.

Cover: R40

Oh I almost forgot you can see me shaking my ass in the music video being launched, I don’t think I have a head but I’m willing to point myself out to anyone nearby while it plays ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ™‚


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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

I am as always a contradiction wrapped in excellent music taste ๐Ÿ˜›
