At a gig for Spooky Wet Dreams’ EP launch, I discovered DIF/CULT, a collective of creative artists working together to make art. They had set up a booth at the gig to sell their illustrations, designs, and prints on postcards, badges as well as stickers. As per usual, I bought about a 100 of them because I have no self-control. I found it interesting and … Continue reading G.P.W: Lizzie Zany of DIF/CULT.

Sometimes, it’s good to step outside your musical comfort zone to explore other genres. Through this, I’ve discovered a few more songs I like … Continue reading Strictly Local Playlist #1
Sometimes, when someone’s in my car for the first time, I like to take this opportunity to play one of my CDs varying from local artists/bands. Yes, usually local music. Not being biased. (OK, maybe a bit). Once, my cousins were in my car and I put on Liyana Fizi’s CD. “This is a local singer, you know”, I said proudly. “Wait, seriously?
