FanGirling: Steven Klein’s Lady Gaga Fame Commercial
01 Nov 2018
This commercial came out in 2013 and today was the first time viewing it. I almost felt like we dove in Blade Runner. Well, this video was produced by RSA (Ridley Scott’s commercial company) so it might have been a reference. I’d like to see Steven direct horror movies. Or…

#NowPlaying 001: Rock and Bop.
11 Dec 2017
The question that I often get is: What do you listen to when you’re not DJ’ing. The truth is, I normally enjoy Jazz music, Classical, Brazilian / Samba, Electro Chill Vibes. Anything that isn’t on the radio or whatever I play out during my gigs. That would drive me bonkers…

Today, I received yet another rejection letter but this time, for something that I’ve been doing for 15 years. Ouch? Not really. By now, I have gotten used to people saying “No” to me that when they actually do say “Yes”, I am stunned by that decision.
For a long…

Atomic Blonde-Inspired Shoot
11 Nov 2017
I’ve recently shot (pun intended) my muse, model Chanell Rose, to an Atomic Blonde-inspired theme. I fell in love with the movie. Charlize Theron is such a bad-ass. I wanted to recreate the 80’s Punk Glam look they’ve embodied. With the help of wardrobe stylist, Tamira Wells, and make-up artist…
