[FRESH VIDEO] The Only Way Is Essex – I’m In Essex (we kid you not..) by wearesme

No, your eyes do not deceive you; this has genuinely happened! The cast of ITV2’s hit show The Only Way Is Essex have recorded and filmed a video for their own song I’m In Essex; a remix of LMFAO’s I’m In Miami.

The video, which is surprisingly well shot and genuinely funny, was filmed in Faces nightclub, Gants Hill and features the entire cast getting up to mischief on the dancefloor. Think plenty fake-tan, vajazzling and jacuzzis.

The Only Way Is Essex series 2 starts on March 20th, ITV2.

[LISTEN + FREE DOWNLOAD] DJ TP – Le Scratch DJ Battle @ XOYO 04/03/11 by wearesme

On Friday night SME’s DJ TP was invited to take part in a DJ battle at the launch night of Le Scratch at XOYO. Le Scratch is a fresh monthly event which mixes the hottest Hiphop, Dubstep & Bass influenced music with live art installations from hyped London illustrators & artists.

DJ’s on the night included Roska and Magnetic Man’s artwork as well as the participants in the aforementioned DJ battle. What was already a brilliant night, was topped by our boy TP winning the battle after causing a near riot on the dancefloor with a mashup mix that started with Tempz; it was a NEXT HYPE! And the moment he turned his back to the crowd and proceeded to scratch with his hands behind his back, will go down in XOYO history; unbelievable tekkers!

Due to the feature over running, TP won the battle only playing half of his allocated set time; an achievement in itself! So for those of you who were there and want to hear the rest of the set, and for those who missed out on the night; below you will find the full set for both stream and download. You can thank the man himself on his Twitter page.

Don’t miss the next Le Scratch on 1st April for another brilliant night. SME’s DJ TP will be playing an extended set on the night and there are big headliners which will be give you the heads up on as soon as they are announced.

SME RELOAD: [REVIEW] Rock The Belles launch night @ East Village 28/01/11



[REVIEW] Rock The Belles @ East Village with Yasmin and DJ Steffie 28/01/11 by wearesme

On Friday night (28/01/11) SME made our way to our second home East Village (home to our blog parties) for the launch of a cool new night called Rock The Belles. Rock the Belles aims to bring together the hottest female DJs, bands, designers and creatives for a genre-defying monthly celebration of the girls who are making their mark on the music industry.

On the night, 2 of those females making movements in the music industry were the incredible singer Yasmin, who was launching her debut single ‘On My Own’ on the night and SME’s very own Steffie, who was taking part in the all female DJ battle.

The night started off on the best note possible; bumping into A-Trak before his set at XOYO on our way to East Village.

We got to the venue and soon after it was ramo in the main room, with the queue outside making its way down Great Eastern Street. You had to feel for the guys waiting outside in subzero temperatures, but this reflected how big a night was on the cards.

The Work It Girls warmed everyone up with some old school RnB gems early on in the night. then later on in the evening, the vibe was turned up a notch. Steffie was spinning yet another big set upstairs, going head to head with the other 2 girls and Yasmin was tearing it up with a crazy cool Hip-Hop downstairs, which SME were definitely not expecting. The room erupted as she dropped banger after BANGER.
Good looking, the voice of an angel and a master on the decks…is there anything this girl can’t do!?

Check out some snaps from the evening below. And don’t miss Rock The Belles round 2 featuring Little Boots. Same venue on 25/02/11 and every last Friday of the month onwards.

And you can download Yasmin’s debut single/EP from iTunes HERE.
