Shake it all about

Every now and then you have a weekend that stands out from the rest. This last weekend was one of those for me.

On Thursday I got to watch the handsome Yo Grapes preform for the first time in ages and on Saturday I got to ‘rage’ to Desmond and their new songs. While I’m on the topic Matthew Mole made an appearance and he has some new songs too, they are pretty flipping rad, I can’t wait to hear the rest.

In between dancing my face off I learnt two things:

1. Lil Bow is one of my favourite South African DJs, seriously her set is so much fun.

2. Trying to make a video is really hard, but I hope to get better at it really soon.

You can watch my silly little video below and check out my way better photos after that. Hope you also had a great weekend!

Yo Grapes and Shortstraw make me wanna dance!

For the past few weeks the handsome Yo Grapes has been ignoring me because he was hard at work making a remix for Shorstraw’s song Bikini Weather…but now it’s done so I get to dance around with him to it.

Seriously it’s one of the best remixes ever!

 

Yo Grapes: December Video

Shane designed this awesome album cover for Yo Grapes

For the past 12 weeks Craig/Yo Grapes has been releasing a song once a week to make his album Grape Juice. Last week the super talented Hanro Havenga shot the music video for December and I got to laugh as Craig acted like a crazy person dancing around Illovo and throwing bread on the floor.

Hanro shot the music video in one continuous shot, which was pretty cool! Check it out:

 

Here’s the first video Craig did featuring yours truly doing weird things:

12 weeks of Yo Grapes – week 6

Every week I’m lucky enough to witness the whole process as Craig comes up with new songs for Grape Juice, it’s so much fun to watch him get better and better as the days go by. This weeks song is called December and so far it’s his favourite and I can see why cause it’s mine to, speaking of cant wait for December holidays!

12 weeks of Yo Grapes

For the next 12 weeks Yo Grapes…also known as my handsome boyfriend Craig will be releasing a new song every week to make up his album called Grape Juice. Which also reminds me it was his birthday two weeks ago and i had this awesome grape head thing made for him by my super talented cousin Tanya.

The nicest thing about Yo Grapes is…

New Songs!

Anyways here is the first song, it’s called Found a Coin and it’s free…wohooo!

Human of the Week

A couple of weeks ago my friends Tom and Ying asked me to be in a music video for the one and only Yo-Grapes…who also just happens to be my boyfriend, three cheers for nepotism!

I’m pretty awkward infront of cameras generally but they pretty much let me act like myself and do really cool things while being filmed by this big fancy slowmotion camera, the best part was smashing a milk bottle with a hockey stick (it’s towards the end of the video), although I did end up getting  covered in milk and glass.

Human of theWeek is by far one of my favourite songs from Yo Grapes and it still makes me giggle like a little girl every time  I listen to the words.

Thanks to Craig, Ying and Tom for being so flipping good at what you do!
