Fri 20th Nov: Broken Hearts, Fixed Beats

When Jez Tozer was handed the baton for the live studio at Somerset House he rallied in 
The Broken Hearts duo to spin the soundtrack to his session.  I got in touch with Amber and Nisha to send me some pics from their set at Somerset House.  In the name of research I tuned into the live feed and bopped along to their do-wop roster of tunes whilst I worked away in my own studio.  Stand out favourite tracks for me were Snoop Doggy Dogg - Gz & Hustlas, Warren G - Regulate, Jungle Book soundtrack, Harry Belafonte - Jump in the line, Dionne Warwich - San Jose, Ella Fitzgerald - Wubba Dolly........they mixed the whole schaboodle using this covetable telephone handset by Hulger.
Not only were the sounds sizzling but so were the sweethearts themselves..........check out their shoot transformation into their own Beyond The Valley label playsuits and Melissa Vivienne Westwood shoes.  Even their bangs are a beautiful heart shape (coiffed by Nina at Alfie's Antique Market I'm informed) with the finishing touch of immaculate macqulliage by Thomas K.  

So thanks to the girls for taking time to snap away and send through all these live action iphone pics.  You can see Jez at work shooting a new face from Storm and also stepping aside into the dj booth...........the warped image was taken in the reflection of the two-way mirror down at the space where the public can view the proceedings of the live shoots.  Up next week is Jason Evans...........woo hoo!
