Tha-Man Of The Week: Paul Winner

By Shams Albadri / Tha-One. Icon Writer   A man approaches me at work and breaks my Sunday ritual of normalcy.

Off-duty models at LFW!

This week, the music world has been set ablaze by house music of all things – even Skrillex (who released a new EP) seems to be missing out on the attention.  Indeed, other reviewers are already tipping the debut of Spanish producer John Talbot, […]
