“I feel like I’m attracted to artists who are looking for the meaning of life, people seeking to understand the universe through their work.” – Flying Lotus
Recently I had the privilege of teaming up with ASUS Australia to try out their limited edition MeMO Pad during my trip to California for Coachella Music Festival.
For someone who doesn’t like to carry much (especially to a music festival in the desert!), the ASUS MeMO Pad is ideal – It barely takes up more space than my iPhone and is almost as light. Along with my camera, wallet, and phone, it was all I took in my handbag to the shows and parties that weekend. Having it on me at all times meant that I could make notes on the musicians playing (to later blog), take pictures, and navigate my way through the schedule and around the festival easily.
Two of my favourites are back at it with the fire for BBC Radio 1’s Thursday night residencies. In this recent run, Flying Lotus takes us through an insane mix including Thom Yorke, Bjork, Aphex Twin, and Portishead, and even has a special guest on the air – fellow LA producer Gaslamp Killer.
Montreal’s Kaytranada serves up some greatness – Shalamar, Kali Uchis, Mac Demarco, The Isley Brothers, and Knxwledge.
