Next stop on the HEAR HEAR journey around the world for International Women’s month (because a day is nowhere near enough time to show all the women who influence and inspire us some love) is Manchester. In Episode 4 I celebrate the Divine Feminine version 18.104.22.168 with a true Manchester legend, celebrity, singer, Manchester United fan, dog lover and my HEAR HEAR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S MONTH ICON – ROWETTA (MCR, UK). She’s a Proper Mancunian with a heart of gold and I’m honoured to have gained an audience with this absolute Queen.
Welcome to Episode 2 of ‘HEAR HEAR’. Consciously uncoupled from my Reform Radio show, it’s my chance to share the wisdom and joy of some extraordinary people in a lockdown regulated session that is exclusive to my YouTube channel. I am blessed and schooled this month by the inspirational and unfuckwithable Jamz Supernova. She’s a BBC 1Xtra and Selector Radio powerhouse and the brains behind the Future Bounce parties and record label and she brings the fire in some beautiful ways.

A little while ago Play It Louder messaged me on my Instagram account and asked if I would do an isolation interview for their page. Here is part two of a two part post.
Glastonbury Festival as we know it did not happen this year, but in amongst the timber, paint and theatre props at Block9’s London warehouse HQ, a broadcast ran from 9pm till 3am showcasing DJ sets from Norman Jay MBE, Heidi , DJ Paulette and Batu_music for each of their Glastonbury Festival venues – Maceo’s, NYC Downlow, Genosys and IIcon. This is your link to view the show again.
The full three minute interview for FREEDA EN ‘For The Record’is now available on Youtube. Drop a like if you’re feeling it. Share it if you feel inspired. Whatever you feel … Enjoy.
A short while ago (which feels like a lifetime now) I met up with the wonderful Cherrelle Redley and her razor sharp team from FREEDA to be interviewed for their gorgeous website. They have created this wonderful interview clip which achieved 13,000 views in two days of posting. I am proud of that.
It’s time to roll up, roll up, dig deep, bed in and get down with your bad sel.ves on Friday August the 9th, as Paulette Does Techno at the cool AF Psychedelic Discotech session at The Carlton Club (Whalley Range).

Here’s ‘Homecoming’ a short film supporting my cover feature by Matt T and Intern Magazine in association with Ace and Tate. I talk about music, family, fashion and Manchester.

Loads of love.
Welcome to ‘Sheroes’ the final cut. It’s a huge musical salute & fist bump to all the ‘Sheroes’ mentioned here, an answer back and antidote to the female free zone aka Daft Punk’s ‘Teachers’ and a nod and hug to those that we love but couldn’t quite fit into the final cut! You are all an inspiration.
Here’s a little taste of the flip side of our acid house squelch and disco experience. ‘Violins And Things’ is dedicated to a shimmery sunglasses wearing Sebastian Manox, to soaring strings, Meat Free T-Shirts, to Social Services signage and last but not least, all about love for Afield graphic shirtage.
