THE STORM IS COMING

Hey guys! So I know I haven’t blogged in a while and I’m pretty amped to be back on the site I actually hadn’t been here in over a month I even forgot my admin password which I had to recover, yeaah.. it’s been that bad. But anyway,  as some of you know I had a gig on the 8th of October called “The Playlist” and it was such a surreal night for me. If I haven’t thanked the guys who came enough, I’m gonna thank you again. I had so much fun with everyone who came out, it was such a magical experience all inspired by the phenomenon that is “NuNairobi” or was anyway. After my gig I was EXTREMELY exhausted as you might imagine and I was behind on a lot of uni work which I desperately needed to catch up on since its my last year. Long story short I was busy getting my life outside blogging and music TOGETHER lol I basically was so fatigued and I needed time to recharge and just rest up and do something different, AND SO I DID and it was quite rejuvenating. Nevertheless, after my break I struggled to find inspiration from any music and thus I had nothing to really write about and I know that sounds lame but it’s a REAL THING ok. Anyway, I’m posting this because I just wanted to have a heart to heart with my readers lol Not every time music sometimes deep post about life and shit ok haha

So I’m back and I’m gonna be writing a lot of more frequently now.. there’s so much I’ve been listening to I don’t even know where to start guys! This is where it all started and it’s gonna end here ok! Love you all who’ve been so patient.

PS: SO people can stop asking me about the next gig, 2017 is going to be a VERY VERYYYYY productive year. hehehe

Much love x

Camille.

PYRONAIRO: THE BIRTH OF A MOVEMENT

In the past year alone, the underground music scene in Nairobi has been bursting with so much talent and ingenuity. It has many hidden gems  who you may not necessarily hear on the radio or see on television. You just need to know where to look.

PyroNairo might be a hashtag you’ve seen one someone’s Facebook presumptuously as they post a link to a song, but do you really know what it means? The term “Pyro” itself means something related to fire. I know it sounds corny but when you listen to music being put out you can be assured that it’s nothing less than flames.

INTRODUCING: HONNE

Better watch out for this British Electronic-Soul duo.  They make really chill music with heavy synths and great harmonies. Their style also has a lot of 80’s power pop influence. I’ve been hooked to “Gone are the Days” since I first heard it.  Thank me later x

TCW’S 10 BEST ALBUMS OF 2015

2015 was an epic year for music, and even though I’m a hip-hop head I found myself gravitating towards other genres and other styles a bit more this year(with no regrets). I’ve listened to some amazing music this year and I can’t wait for what 2016 has in store for us!

Note: Today is the anniversary of the day this blog was created, 30th Dec 2011. Happy anniversary to us!

MY FAVORITE ALBUMS OF 2015 (so far…)

Here’s another random list of the albums released thus far in 2015 that I absolutely fell in love with. On a side note, even though I’m more of a hip-hop fan, this year I’ve ventured and tried to listen to genres I normally shunned away because I didn’t think they were ‘hard’ enough lol. I can say now that I’ve listened to some incredible music this year  because I opened my mind just a little bit and let the music speak for itself rather than my preconceived notions of certain artists or styles.
