Listen Here!

So you haven’t sorted you ticket yet for Listen Out 2014?

Trust me, the trip to Europe for the Summer Festival Circuit (only to be welcomed home to winter benders) is hurting my bank account too! But before you go blow your cash at the Ambar ATM at 2am Saturday, then again at 3am on Sunday,  for the 4th weekend in a row go grab your LISTEN OUT 2014 ticket! I’ve just been told there will be NO door sales.

The party WILL sell out (super soon) and I don’t want you to miss out on seeing these 5 super-hot acts who I am totally obsessed with:

Young Fathers - Get Up

Bondax - Giving It All

Golden Features - Guillotine

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs - Tape & Money

SchoolBoy Q - There He Go

Freya's Coffee Scrub

Meet Freya! She's an inspiring young Perth gal who's stepping out of her comfort zone to create, design and distribute her own line of natural cosmetics! Freya's Coffee Scrub is made by hand, to order by Freya. I caught up with her to get the low down on this exciting new venture... 

How did the coffee come to you? I'm a Sagittarius so most ideas come to me suddenly and wildly. Coffee scrubs have become quite popular along with most natural ways of healing, so I decided to create something uniquely to me through marketing and ingredients. I'll eventually tie it in with my massage therapy in the near future.

What are the benefits of Freya’s Coffee Scrub? There are lots of benefits, obviously being all natural ingredients you are not letting any nasties into your body through the skin. And it’s preservative free!

What’s in it? The base ingredients I’m using currently are fresh coffee grind (arabica beans), epsom salt, coconut oil and essential oil blends. Coffee is full of antioxidants, mildly exfoliates, smoothes and firms the skin. Epsom salt is a natural detoxifier, as your skin absorbs up to 60% of what you put on it (a reason not to use products with harsh chemicals) the salt helps your body rid toxins and flush out. Coconut oil softens and moisturizes the skin as essential oils stimulate the mind through your senses! 

What three 3 tunes do you suggest to scrub too? I love a good sing and dance in the shower, so at the moment my 3 most showered to tracks are;

Lorde - 400 Lux

Arctic Monkeys - Do I wanna know

Fat Freddy's Drop - The Raft

You can purchase Freya's Coffee Scrub from her website and in person at Boutique Eco, Margaret River. 

All products are made to order with love! Very exciting things to come for this young entrepreneur. You can follow Freya’s progress by liking her Facebook Page here  and following her on Instagram @freyascoffeescrub

It Sounds Fresh

Part of my job working for Boomtick Events includes promoting upcoming artists that we have playing in the clubs. I’ve just spent the morning listening to some really great mixes from five DJ’s that are on the next Fresh produce line-up at Ambar. Fresh Produce in a night that happens a couple of times a year, where we give Perth DJ’s  the opportunity to play at Ambar if they haven’t before! ALL of the mixes were THAT great, that I can’t not share them with you…

If you like what you here make sure you pop down the club Friday 20 June! All the details can be found here!

Thursday's Loose Change

One of the inspiring and talented hip hop acts that reigns from Big Village Records returns to Perth from the SYD this Thursday (YAY!).  Loose Change is comprised of Rapaport and Ellesquire, with their super-smooth deckman P.Major. They’re responsible for tracks ‘New Day’ and ‘Shoosh’, which more recently has been gettin' smashed on the J’s.

With Sarah Pellicano and Silvertongue supporting, it’s fair to call it a Thirsty Thursday! If you’re not familiar with their music that’s no problem, as I have listed some viewing/listening links for your pleasure below! 

If you're keen to come to their show this Friday I've got a $10 guest list, flick me an email here and I'll sort ya'll :-)

Ode to the Beat Maker - Loose Change

On The Prowl Ellesquire - 

Shoosh - Loose Change

Suburban Dark - What You Know About Ft. Rapaport

Hideout Festival 2014

It’s amazing but not surprising what a good night of dancing with beautiful friends can do. I’m not saying the red wine, bag of bikkies AND the fact that I stayed in on the Friday night didn't contribute. But if it wasn’t for these decision-making-arms-twisters I wouldn't be feeling the way I am right now. I'm feel ecstatic. Trust me, its been a long time for that natural adrenaline of personal excitement to flow throughout my body. 

On the 28th June, the night of my BIRFDAY Party , I’ll leave the club (It’s around the world theme, quite fitting really) to embark on a journey which will take myself and a legendary team from Perth to Croatia! This is the first country I’ll be spending some time in of my 3 week holiday. For many reason but most importantly for this one, Hideout Festival...

The line-up makes me wet. Am I allowed to say that? Fuck it, yeah I am! AND the peeps that I am going with, I don't have the words to explain... It's going to quite possibly be the best year ever.

Sarah Pellicano Releases 'Playing With Fire'

WA singer/songwriter Sarah Pellicano is excited to announce her newest release, ‘Playing With Fire’ featuring MC Roc Walla and produced by much-loved fellow WA act Creed Birch.

The second electronic release from Pellicano’s Debut EP captures her raw and emotional take on love and lust, a taste of why she has been a sought after vocalist in Perth. ‘Playing With Fire’ is a story of desperation and inadequacy, told with Pellicano’s unique voice, and backed by the incredible flow of Roc Walla.

Of the track, Pellicano says, “It’s about what desperate lengths people go to when it comes to losing someone they love. It starts with a girl, so innocent and clueless, and ends with her becoming someone she never wanted to be for someone who didn't value her.” Accompanied by Roc Walla’s infallible flow and poetry and Creed Birch’s growling production, this is a team that cannot disappoint.

The track has had over 8000 plays over the last 5 days! 
Take a listen, grab the free download and share the lurve.

The two artist  heading to see (both for the first time) Erykah Badu and Dave Matthews Band. Undecided whether to go or not, let me help make up your mind. I insists...


Reason number one... Erkya Badu.
