[EDIT: this competition is now closed. Click here to see if we’re running any open competitions] 

We’re DJing noughties hip hop and RN’B at this Nordic by Nature event – plus we have 2 x 2 guestlist spots to give away!
BLOG LOVE IS CREW LOVE

Strictly speaking, this is Norwegian electro-queen Sandra Kolstad‘s album launch, but we (and some bad blog bitches) are gatecrashing the party with a virtual record box full of hip hop and RN’B bangers from the 2000s! To get you in the mood, listen to my mashup (how noughties!) of Destiny’s Child and the Luniz…

…and read these words from event organisers/hypewomen Nordic by Nature:

After thousands of spilled drinks, embarrassing music talks, homemade mixtapes and too much love for Beyoncé we decided to make things real and gather all of us together to make you dance the fierce way. We will use our wisdom to make you feel nice and crazy. We will play our favourite tunes and will call them 00 hits. We will use technic, our typing hands will be thrilled. Who we are? The “High 5” bloggers of Berlin which means we do high 5’s as well and will surround the beloved Sandra Kolstad for her album release at FluxFriday in Berlin.

Crew ♥ is Blog ♥

FluxFM, Nordic by Nature, No Fear Of Pop, Überlin, Lucy vs. the Globe & Ponydanceclyde present FluxFriday with:

◯ SANDRA KOLSTAD (live) ◯
