It has been so long, How are you doing?
My bandmate Moina and her friends from SVA (Stroud Valley Arts) started internet Radio station the beginning of lock down back in March. She asked me if i would like to do DJ mix, so I started playing music which made by my friends at Deepbed Radio. I've been missing my friends so much that it has been really nice to play music which contains their voice, there talent and vibes. I am having a bit of brake to concentrate making my own music, but there are some links here if you like to listen to it...

So back in Spring 2017, PRS Foundation granted us a fund under the 'Women makes music' scheme. So that gave us a opportunity to work with Ali Chant, who is amazing sound engineer/producer/musician in Bristol. He used to run legendary recording studio- Toy Box studio and worked many amazing artists such as PJ Harvey! Ali is such a legend. We've made plan to have 8 days recording and 3 days of mixing. His new studio 'THE PLAYPEN' is 2 min away from my house at the edge of Easton. The studio is filled up with cool analogue synth, pedals, amps, a Gong and all other fun stuff.... We had such a great time there. Ali is so good with people and we are very relaxed to play. Also we really appreciated his approach of recording and his good ear and taste. We are so excited to finish all and looking forward to hear the end result !! Here are some clips of fun times...
