Vue du studio ce matin

It’s a lovey day here in Montpellier and I’m loving the sunshine in the studio so I’m taking a quick picture while listening to Neil Conti’s super cool sample CD :-) If only every work day was like this! The 808 and the rest have never seen the sun before ;) and except for a quick stint in Greece working on Pete Lawrence’s LP a few years ago, I’ve never felt the heat of the sun in the studio!

Magic moments nr2: the graffiti :-)

While having a cigarette outside the Red Loft today I noticed the graffiti on the door! Steve says that it has been there for a few weeks now. What a coincidence!! :-)

When I woke up this morninnnng…

I saw Mount Washington under LA’s blue ska-ee-y! (this was 2 days ago actually I only just got the hang of this camera). I was staying at my wunderbar friends Pierre and Kirsty in Glassell Park in North East LA and in the morning, this was the view from the breakfast table. How lucky are they from a scale of 1 to 10 millions?

Laura B live on ‘In a Dream’ with Mystic Pete KXLU 88.9FM LA Nov 2013

Image

I flew to LA last friday and on saturday I was playing live on KXLU 88.9 FM (one of Los Angeles’ most music friendly college radio) on a midnight to 2am show called ‘In a Dream’ as guest of the wonderful, super funny and totally entertaining character that is Mystic Pete. Now I have done interviews and/or played live on the radio before (Resonnance FM, BBC Radio 3, Big Chill FM etc.) but this ‘session’ was definitely one to remember for its buzzing, slightly chaotic and totally fun vibe! I played about one and a half hours of old and new material including a couple of remixes and everything felt right.

There were 3 photographers in the studio with us so for once I have pictures!

A big thank you to Mystic Pete for everything Mystic Pete does, including inviting me on his show, telling the future and holding the sunshine in Los Angeles for me, it worked!!
