So apparently my underfed stomach has 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 a valuable lesson 😦 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 🙂

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 🙂
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
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 🙂
Here’s some dream pop from Russ Manning, the former Twin Shadow bassist, to make you feel like my set has already started 🙂
So I’m in the latest CityPress magazine , the Imag. I talk style and how I like DJ and blog. Exciting times at camp SlightlySingle 🙂
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 🙂
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:
DJ GRACE JONES
AKA SlightlySingle blogger …me 🙂
First acts start at 9PM.
Metallic Kiss debuts at midnight.
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 🙂
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 😉
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
HEARTS ON FIRE!
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 🙂
I want to play this next time I DJ. It’s sexy and danceable to the max.
‘Washed up, washed up baby. washed up honey’
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 🙂
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 🙂
I am as always a contradiction wrapped in excellent music taste 😛
