We're On A Boat!

First ever SECRET WARS on water!

Tomorrow absolutely everybody and everyone worth partying with in Sweden will board the M/S Galaxy for 25 hours of mayhem. 1700 tickets sold and more DJ's, artists, bands and beers than you can count packed in.. Let's go!

Tickets might still be available.. Check out 25 HOUR PEOPLE's website and pray!

We depart Stockholm tomorrow (29th) at 1800 hours.

Monorex Music Thursday ('cause music Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday had the day off)

We are late this week so "stop your bloodclot crying" as we have two tracks today. The first is by City & Colours, who performed at Royal Albert Hall and everyone keeps telling me it was emotional - people crying, etc. Andy claims "he kept the emotion inside", but I don't believe him - I think he was first to draw for the Kleenex quick time!
Second we have James Vincent McMorrow, who supported City & Colours at the emotional gig at Royal Albert Hall.

Both on this Record Label: Dinealone Records

P.S. Those indies are churning out great music could the industry be changing maybe? Nope, indies have always been putting out great music....Even though there is no such thing as 'great music' just opinion really....okay I'm blabbering.


A Collection To Cry For

Some guy called Ralph Lifshitz born and raised in the Bronx, sold some ties here and there to some people he knew. Then changed his last name to Lauren created a clothing line which was pretty much more than a clothing label it was a Lifestyle. That word gets used too much but in this case it's correct. From the family that owned the country club to the guy selling crack so he could look dope wearing Ralph Lauren head to toe. It was always more than your average clothing label with all that history put aside Mr Lauren has managed to put together one of the best Car collections i have ever seen in my life money well spent on the cars and the presentation.

Watch this space

Preparation has begun.....keep an eye out

Monorex Music Monday

What can I say really - been a fan for a while and got a chance to catch one of their live sets. Hands down just a really tight band. Now, with the launch of their new album; Manchester Orchestra's new video is sick. Shout out to every music director who has made something so dope it makes me want keep pressing play on Youtube. The track today is called simple math from Manchester Orchestra's new album of the same name. The video is epic, story telling and music done at its best, for more from the band click HERE and if you want to more from the director duo who created this epic visual click HERE

In fact catch their promo video for simple math as well - equally amazing. Listen to the lyrics as they tie in nicely with the visuals.

Classic toy ads from our childhood days...

A few memories from our childhood past (well for me anyway) - I am getting old but still feel the 80's were the best time for ads and music!

Hahaha you can tell we are 90% male in this studio from the above selection!

We're currently prepping for a project with Nandos involving Arty stuff, Chicken stuff, and kids, no we're not painting chicken and no we're not painting kids. Just wait till the time comes and we will tell you all about it over a sugar filled fizzy drink and some Peri-Peri chicken.

Monorex Music Monday

Hello young world. It's Monday it's sunny, oh wait no it's raining. I have a few track for you this week because i feel like it.

The Weeknd - What You Need Chopped And Screwed By Mike G

Last year DJ Jazzy Jeff and Mick Boogie released this summertime mixtape which is pretty dope. The weather is starting to brighten up a bit. The tape includes some rap classics that are sick for summer. The other day i looked like an idiot walking down the street rapping to Dr Dre . Also on the tape is the sample for the song Isley Brothers - Footsteps In The Dark. When mother nature decides to clean up it's act and get sunny again kick back, wear a straw hat, drink supermalt and listen to this.

Monorex Music Monday

Howdy Folks (do people in real life say that or is it only the movies) The last time i listened to this guy above he had just released his debut 'Jam' which was then followed up with 'This Charming Man' both were great projects, but then i sort of lost track of him dunno why cos his new work is great. Andy has been playing his 'Lovers Holiday' ep for some time and its really really really dope, but andy just showed me his new single called 'We Even Try' with some women called 'Sara Quin' who is apparently a big deal. I did say Andy in this post too much i need to stop that.
