Has Anyone Ever Heard of Sable?

Well have you?

No I'm not talking about the furry little weasel martens that run around the forests of Russia and Asia. Although the furry creatures are the mascot for this particular artist.

I'm talking about Sable the Bass Music artist who hails from Perth, Australia and would have to be one of my ALL TIME favourite music artists from 2014. On his Facebook page Sable classifies his musical genre as Bass Music, but I think there's also a bit of electronica meets 'kawaii' meets 'gamer' music in there as well. Genre technicalities aside; the all encompassing blend of sound and beats is just pure pleasure to the ears and uplifting for the soul.

So how did I stumble across Sable?

Rewind back to the start of the year. I was driving along, listening to the radio when Sable's song Feels So Good started to play. I couldn't believe what I was hearing, it was amazing. I don't know if this is just me but sometimes certain songs or music can have such an effect on you that it becomes just so much more than a song. Like the songs that seem to get right down to the bone and make you get up and dance or a song that makes you feel like you can soar through the sky, or have an outer body experience. That was what it was like for me. Feels So Good wasn't just another song playing on the radio; it was a song, sound which was completely leaving the vicinity of my speakers and filling up my car, floating around me and pulsing through my veins. I loved it so much I had to write down the name of the song and artist before I completely forgot. (This is naughty boys and girls, don't text and drive.) I will admit that this song was my 'happy' wake up alarm for a large chunk of this year.

Fast forward back to now and you can listen Sable EP's and a few other singles on iTunes, Soundcloud and Youtube (Links will be at the end). There is also a brand spanking NEW single being dropped this Monday!
 It's a Sable x Kele collaboration and from the teaser it sounds absolutely sick. I AM SO EXCITED FOR IT!

I would definitely recommend...



If you listen to the single of the same name and love it, then you will also love the EP! Totally has the same musical vibe as the single yet each track has its own individual identity. The tracks that I personally love and stand out to me from this EP would be Foolin' and Want U Girl. (Oooh I am so obsessed with Want U Girl at the moment!)

Another EP definitely worth checking out is Hypercolour. You can't find this one on iTunes but you can download it on Bandcamp under the label Diehard Records. My personal favourites from this EP are You Too and Crush with lots of driving clap and deep bass beat love to be found all round. 
For something more on the atmospheric side, I would recommend REUNION which can also be found on Bandcamp - Diehard Records.

Right now however I am currently listening to and loving the Basenji x Sable mixes AKA the Sable remix of Basenji's Speak With A Dofflin and the Basenji remix of Foolin'.



If you're looking to try out something different or just want some new music definately head over to Sable's Soundcloud page and have a listen to some tracks. (There's also some sneaky goodies available for free download as well.)

I know I've been pretty quiet on the blogosphere this year, but 2014 has definately been a fun year musically for me. I've been trying out different genres and artists and feel more comfortable in being open about what I like. My musical taste is still pretty eclectic but I'm hoping to be able to share more of what I've discovered and liked with you all soon!

Till next time!

Original Source Vanilla and Raspberry



"If you like Strawberry Milkshakes doo doo do and getting caught in the rain doo doo do..."  I don't know why but for some reason this just makes me thing of Rupert Holmes'-"Escape".

This stuff smells absolutely scrumptious! It is amazing and if you are the type of person who loves strawberries or pink things you will love this!
I know that it says Vanilla and Raspberry but it honestly smells like a very yummy sweet strawberry milkshake. Almost like you could taste it!

They're both fairly gentle products on the skin, not overly moisturising and not terribly drying. The scent of the shower gel doesn't linger for very long so I would go for the handwash if you would like the scent to linger. I just love the design of the packaging as well; it being true to form with the other Original Source products.

Just remember that it's not edible!

It's not Just About Girls... /Love146





His Name Was David. from Love146 on Vimeo.

I chose this weeks Love146 video because I think that sometimes it is easy to associate and stereotype particular genders with particular sexual crimes and acts. For example causing the stereotype that it is only men selling girls for various trafficking reasons. In reality this is not the case, as females can also participate in trafficking children and males and young boys are also targeted by trafficking for the same reasons as young girls; but for some reason awareness of this seems to be limited in the general public. 

I remember watching a documentary, years ago, about street urchins AKA homeless children in a European country, (which unfortunately I have forgotten the name of), that told the story of young girls and boys who were targeted by older men and women and would often accept propositions of sex just so they could have a warm bed to sleep in for the night. When these young people were interviewed it could be seen that accepting an offer once, made them targets of unwanted harassment by these people propositioning them night after night and in some cases resulting in rape and abduction. Most of the children and teenagers interviewed about this were boys.

This is why I chose this video as I think it is great that they were so readily and willing to accommodate the needs of the young people requesting help, without discriminating against gender. Although to be honest I don't think that many organisations like this would actually discriminate against gender...

Anyway I think it is great that they are helping young boys as well. I haven't had the chance to do any extra research this week so if you, my lovely readers, know of any other wonderful organisations that fight against human trafficking, I would love to hear about them and check them out as well.

Till next time!
