Welcome back to Can U Put Me On Guestlist?! Chelina Manuhutu is this week’s guest and what a fun episode it was to record! When I asked Chelina to come on to the show she said “why don’t we record it at the beach?!”. At first I didn’t know how I felt about taking all my equipment down but we did in the end and wow, it was so amazing! We sat on a rock at Sa Caleta in Ibiza, the sun was shining and we just had a real good catch up and a laugh and chatted about a variety of things, from music to baking, putting people on guestlist and more!

This week I am joined by the lovely Hannah Wants. Back in December Hannah moved to Ibiza with her gorgeous dog Ivor to reset and work on herself after battling breast cancer for the second time whilst simultaneously going through the difficulties that covid brought to the world. In this podcast we talk about her journey and how she is taking control of her health and wellbeing to overcome such a difficult time in her life, how making music has played a big part in her healing process, all of the amazing music that she has been working on, the relaunch of her label etiquette, her new live stream series, how she has been enjoying the island so far and more! A chat that left me feeling very inspired by Hannah’s positive approach towards life.

Mark Lawrence has done so much in the music industry as well as for it. This includes 10 years at PRS as well as being the former CEO of AFEM. Mark is now the director of Black Rock Publishing as well as Sentric Electronic, working side by side with some of the most exciting established and upcoming talent in the industry. Before this interview, I personally didn’t know much about publishing at all, so it was so interesting to find out exactly how publishing works, how a publishing deal comes about and how the last year has affected the world of publishing. Mark is so great to listen to as not only does he share so much great knowledge but also gives a lot of brilliant advice for creatives. Mark is also an Advisory Board Member at In Place of War, which you can find more information about here:

On this week’s episode of Can U Put Me On Guestlist? I am joined by the lovely Lilly Palmer. Born in Germany but spending a lot of time in Zurich with its great and flourishing underground scene, her devotion for music got stronger and stronger which finally led her to the decision to fully dive into the realm of the underground in 2015. Since then, and now based just outside of Amsterdam, Lilly hasn’t stopped, releasing on labels such as Drumcode, Senso Sounds and Octopus Recordings and performing at some of the biggest clubs and festivals around the world.

In this episode, I have a really down to earth chat with Lilly about her career so far and the challenges she has come across along the way, getting creative in the studio, her transition from nutritionist to DJ and so much more. A chat with lots of giggles and fun!

Welcome back to ‘Can U Put Me On Guestlist?’! I’m very excited to kick off 2021 with one of life’s gems, Farah Syed. After spending half of her life in California, Farah’s career began in Los Angeles working for powerhouse talent agency, WME, where she spent over five years focusing on brand partnerships and commercial endorsements for the agency’s music roster which included working with artists such as Lady Gaga, Pharrell Williams, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Rihanna and many more. (Imagine working with names like these at one of your first jobs!) After agency life, Farah then went into artist management.

Farah then moved to Berlin and started working with the world's largest electronic music platform for digital downloads, yes you got it, Beatport. Farah has a great overview of the company and has had roles within the Label Management and Marketing/Creative Services teams.  She now oversees PR for the company and is focusing on strategic external partnerships with conferences, philanthropic organizations, initiatives related to diversity and mental health, as well as updating the Beatport community on their news and products. In addition, based on her extensive history working with artists, Farah is involved on the artist side, giving input for the editorial on Beatportal, curating various streams and booking collectives from all over the globe to DJ on their Twitch channel.

We chat about where her love for electronic music began, the start of her career, working for Beatport, being a proud member and ambassador of shesaid.so, mental health and more!

After fishing the 21 days of resilience challenge with Laura, I knew I had to get her on the podcast. Laura Williams aka The Secret Inspirer works with different individuals and teams in the entertainment industry to build their resilience and find the fuel we need to cope well with the rollercoaster of life and avoid burnout. With everything that’s happening in the world right now I thought it would be a great time to chat with Laura about all of the small little practices and thoughts that can give us that boost of energy that we need to thrive.

I loved doing the 21 days of resilience challenge, it really made me change the way I look and do certain things in life in a very positive way and I really hope that you guys get a lot out of this conversation too!

If you’re interested in getting on the guestlist for the next 21 day resilience challenge with The Secret Inspirer or for any other enquiries drop Laura a line at laura@thesecretinpirer.com or DM @thesecretinspirer on Instagram.

This week I am joined by someone who I love and admire very much, Hector. With more than 20 years of experience in music behind him, Hector has recently started a new project called VL Camp in which attendees will learn and work side by side with different professionals in the music industry.

We talk about the camp itself and the importance of sharing music, knowledge and experiences, how having his full record collection stolen actually turned out to be an amazing story, starting Vatos Locos and how it has grown to what it is today and more!
