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 
Music DJ London

It was a super fun night, celebrated behind the decks, with friends and a cocktail or few. You can read me gushing over how chuffed I am about being an award winning blogger and see the full list of Project 13 winners by clicking here.

The MOBO Awards returned to Glasgow for the forth time and I was honoured to present the award for Best Newcomer 2016 along with British athlete, Dina Asher-Smith and actor, Arnold Oceng, to WSTRN.

ITV2 MOBO Awards 2016

Clean Bandit, Chase & Status and Craig David were among the performers at the SSE Hydro and the award show was televised live on ITV2.  

Backstage I got glammed up, chuckled with comedy legend, Lenny Henry, caught up with MOBO Award hosts, Rickie and Melvin, posed with Maya Jama and even learnt some dance moves from Strictly Come Dancing's finalist, Ore Oduba.

My Interview with Ella Henderson

Throw back to when I headed to The Hospital Club in London to interview former Xfactor starlet, two time Brit award nominated, superstar in the making, Ella Henderson for ITV2 entertainment show, The Hot Desk.

The chart topping pop princess revealed all about her very own Mirror Man, debuted her acting skills and even reminisced about the time Whoopi Goldberg gave Ella her shoes (I know. Amazing right?!)

She gushed about her pride at being nominated for not one but two Brit Awards this year and shared her excitement about joining Take That on their UK tour later this year. The girl's on fire!


The full interview has already been broadcast on ITV2 but below you can watch the interview too.  

Are you a fan of Elle Henderson? Looking forward to this years XFactor? Let me know! I'm so nosey :)

Lots of love

AJ

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.
