Kelela, a D.C-born and L.A-based singer, is one of my new favorite artists and when I say I listen to her every single day, I listen to her all day every day. Her music is the perfect mix between 90′s R&B influence and a bit of “electro funk.” Kelela stated her music is “not just weird, it’s deliberately off-putting.”
Catch the link for her mixtape, CUT 4 ME, HERE.

Last Friday I went to Toronto for my very first time to DJ for the Che Kothari & Wan Luv’s Launch alongside DJ Huggy Bear, DJ Mensa, DJ Lissa Monet & many more at Tattoo! Despite me being jet lagged from London & some other insane hiccups, I had a nice time. There were tons of amazing vegan/raw restaurants and I got to meet the artist Gyimah Gariba whom I met online a few years ago after he made some incredible art of me.

The green room had all my favorites from my rider. In case you don’t know what a rider is, it’s a list of the basic needs that an artist/DJ needs that the promoter provides. My list is pretty simple; raw nuts, raw vegetables, hummus, water…oh and whiskey and champagne. What? I mean, you just never know.

Afterwards, we went to a rad afterparty…

Day 5, I met with Mack to have a drink right before dinner with Grace and friends at Hoi Polloi of the Ace Hotel.
This was my 3rd time in London and I really started to like London. My first time there years ago was a bit of a let down…ONLY because growing up in the States, you think Europe is so foreign and different. When I got to London, I was unimpressed only because it felt like New York…which is why I like it now. In general, I’ve come to appreciate it for the rad city that it is. Oi.My sweet room at the Ace Hotel. It felt like a cozy camp.
The “12 Years A Slave” Party was much more than I anticipated. Grace and I were urged by our friend Irene that it was a dressy affair and made sure that we got the picture and that we didn’t arrive dressed as homeless tomboys. Well, we got the picture and we came correct. We got there early and took one lap around the party…only to realize halfway around that we walked past Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie, chatting with their table mates.

Saturday, I met up with Grace and friends at the ICA to watch an incredible Cheryl Dunn Documentary about street photographers in New York City. It made me long for home, but it was cool to be watching it in London. Although I was terribly jetlagged, I tried to keep my eyes open…
Vana Tallinn was a liqueur that Grace urged me to try. Apparently, it’s Estonian and in Russia people drink it straight to stay warm. Hey, why not. It had a sort of licorice flavor, but not in that gross way. It was cool.
