InStyle Magazine DJ Playlist

What a week! One minute I’m running around with the Brownlee Brothers, trying my very hardest to keep up with them, the next minute I’m DJing from the most Instagrammable venue in London, Lights Of Soho, playing tunes for Instyle Magazine's Project 13 Awards after party. Now that I've had a moment to catch my breath, let's have a chat.

Instyle UK Magazine Party DJ

Celebrating online writers and bloggers, Instyle Magazine's Project 13 is in it's second year, enabling thousands of people to vote for their favourite blogger in a range of categories (from travel to food, craft to fitness) to win an award. Much to my surprise and delight, I won the award for Best Fitness & Wellbeing Blog. Thank you so much for voting!

Instyle Award

There was even more to celebrate as not only did I win an award but I was also DJ'ing at their after party and got the party into full swing playing a mix of RnB and pop tracks but the following seemed to be particularly popular on the night:

  • Lee Walker feat. Katy B - Freak Like Me
  •  KDA feat. Katy B + Tiny Tempah - turn the Music Louder
  •  George Kwali & Kideko feat. Nadia Rose - Crank It
  •  Eats Everything vs Audion - Dancing
  •  Stardust - Music Sounds Better
  •  Robin S - Show me Love never

It was a super fun night, celebrated behind the decks, with friends and a cocktail or few.

DJing In Century Club London

Here's a little throwback to when I took my weekly radio chart show live to the Century Club in London for LCM's SS16. I played  the finest pop tunes for Mens Fashion Week London and was joined on the show by a host of special guests including Jai'me from BoyMeetsFashion.com at the exclusive Century Club on Shaftsbury Avenue.

The private members lounge was transformed into a boudoir of decadence where I also chatted with founders of Drakes of London, Dermologica and ManiBreak.

Guests were treated to hair, nails and beard trims, canapés and drinks, exclusive footage of L:CM runway and of course, live music and the sound of my dulcet tones.

It was almost too much fun.

DJ'ing For Ibiza Rocks

Did you know that Ibiza Rocks celebrated their 10th birthday last week? Well if you don’t know, now you know.

Ibiza Rocks is a hotel and live music venue in Spain that has hosted the likes of Jake Bugg, Tinnie Tempah, Example and Ed Sheran and without sounding too corny, is also a place that has filled me with unforgettable memories. Last year I watched Fatboy Slim and Ella Eyre perform live and I even caught up with Clean Bandit before seeing them on stage their too. Naturally, I was delighted to be part of Ibiza Rocks’ ten year anniversary.

To celebrate, Ibiza Rocks had an exclusive pop up in Shoreditch, London and I was DJ’ing 90s anthems with my girl, Charlotte De Carle. Our tune-packed slot was broadcasted live on Hoxton Radio, where we controlled the airwaves for three hours to kick start the May bank holiday weekend.

90s music may not scream Ibiza Rocks initially, especially when Sigma, Rudimental and Gorgan City are all on their line up this year, but 90s music is nostalgic. Simple. I’ll never forget Creep by TLC being the song that I sipped cheap Sangria to before heading out with my girl friends in San Antonio and Scream by Michael and Janet Jackson was definitely sang in our taxi ride home one night after a full day and night at Formentera beach. 90s music has created the positive vibes for my pre and post-party antics in Ibiza so...90s it was.

Charlotte fed me, danced all over me and made me chuckle throughout the radio show. We were visited by our Hoxton Radio family, who showed some serious crew love and trendy East Londoners popped in throughout the show too. I’m still proud that I was apart of such a great event so Happy Birthday Ibiza Rocks! Here’s to many more musical memories.

You can catch me on my regular Hoxton Radio slot presenting the Chart Show, 2-4pm on Monday’s. 

What I Wore To DJ For Whistle & Bango Launch

AQ/AQ Python Jumpsuit | AQ/AQ Python Dress | Skull Candy Headphones | Whistle & Bango Postcode Bangle | Tweet Me: @AJOdudu | Instagram Me: @ajodudu

Last night I DJ’ed at Whistle&Bango’s launch party in Nottinghill, London. I wanted to wear something simple, sexy and white and for me, this jumpsuit ticks all the boxes. In fact, my go to store for jumpsuits is always AQ/AQ as they’re guaranteed to have sizes for long legs and always add great shapes to any figure, even when the jumpsuit is baggy in style. I got so many compliments when wearing this jumpsuit that I want to wear it again. I need to get it in the colours black and blue too so that I can do just that.  If jumpsuits aren’t your thing then the style also comes as a dress

I teamed the statement jumpsuit with simple accessories; Topshop rings and my gorgeous Whistle & Bango postcode bangle, celebrating my London address in style. You can get personalised and engraved bangles too. Happy days!
