Lovebox 2018

I’ve heard great things about Lovebox over the years, but up until now I never had the opportunity (or money) to go.

Honestly this year is all about living my best life with the best people, and over the last 2 weekends I have done just that.

Everyone always asks me why am I so eager to go to concerts and festivals, and the truth is that it serves to be some what of an escape route. I can listen to my favorite artists in an environment where the people around me share that same love and energy (to a certain extent). Music is a such a subjective thing so when you are in the same room or vicinity as people who also like what you like, it’s truly something special.

I have been to 7 concerts/festivals so far this year and although I don’t blog about them much on here, I always try to capture visual content to post on my YouTube channel. I’m currently trying to put something together for Wireless & Lovebox with the small amount of footage that I actually have.

*update* there’s no video

Clearly, I’ve gone off on a tangent so lets actually get down into my Lovebox experience…

Love box is by far the best festival I have ever been to!!

In my wireless blog post, I highlighted the fact that there were no fun things to do. However at Lovebox they had (fake) Wedding ceremonies, funfair rides and a Karaoke tent. I actually spent the majority of my time in these areas & ended up missing a whole bunch of acts inc SZA 😦

Gunnersbury Park is the perfect home for Lovebox, there is an ample amount of space, which I guess is how they managed to have so many stages and food trucks. Once again I had the Jerk chicken rice box which was even more tasty the second time round.

The overall atmosphere was just amazing, everyone was so friendly & didn’t feel any type of way to startup a conversation. I would 100% encourage any & everyone to try to attend in the near future.

Tunes on a Tuesday 08: Je t’adore/OMW

Hey everyone, I’m back again with the 8th segment of Tunes on a Tuesday! Honestly, I can’t believe it’s been 8 weeks already, time surely does fly.

This weeks post goes to Sylo Nozra, an R’n’B vocalist/producer from Toronto. Sylo released not one but two tracks just in time for summer. The light, airy production is very similar to that of Lolo Zouaï’s Brooklyn Love, which was my chosen track for the 5th week of this segment.

Lately there have been so many new artists emerging from Toronto or should I say Canada as a whole. It is so refreshing to hear a variety of new sounds from a place which wasn’t previously that well known for music.

Check out Je t’adore & omw by Sylo Nozra below.

Tunes on a Tuesday 07: Taste

Welcome back to Tunes on a Tuesday!

As you may or may not have noticed, I didnt post last week 😦 but I’m back and (hopefully) better.

The track I’ve chosen this week is ‘Taste’ by Tyga.
Now if you know me, then you know I am not the biggest fan of Tyga. The last project I actually listened to by him was that fan of a fan joint mixtape with Chris Brown which I absolutely loved.

I’m not too sure if this song (taste) warrants me to say that Tyga is back, however I am looking forward to hearing what else he has in store.

What I can say is that this song is most definitely a vibe & will be put on repeat until I’m sick of it.

Tunes on a Tuesday 06: Pa Mi

It’s summer! Which means it’s only right that I stray away from the chilled music I’ve been posting & look towards songs that actually match the weather.

The track I’ve chosen for today’s segment of ‘Tunes on a Tuesday’, is Pa Mi by Tory Lanez.

This song is literally perfect for the summer. The first time I heard it I could just imagine myself cruising down the streets of Miami with a Frappuccino in hand. I despise Frappuccino’s and I’ve never been to Miami but you get the picture.

Check it out below & let me know if Pa Mi is making it onto your summer playlist.

Tunes on a Tuesday 05: Brooklyn Love

This weeks Tunes on a Tuesday post goes to Brooklyn Love by Lolo Zouaï.

The 22 year old French-American rose to popularity through soundcloud and has since then quit her waitressing job, to get to grips with her new found fame.

Lolo’s music is influenced by none other than the late Aaliyah Haughton. In her song ‘blue’ she even goes so far as to mention having the late singer’s poster on her wall.

I’m really fascinated with the light, airy, yet slightly electronic feel ‘Brooklyn Love’ gives off.

Lolo is yet to prove her longevity but I’m excited to see what’s yet to come
