Toe Tappers: Swedish House Mafia ft John Martin ‘Don’t you Worry Child’

Being head over heels crazy for a set of DJs, who would have thought? Well if you know Swedish House Mafia, you’ll understand the epic moments one has when listening to their music. Personally, I’ve seen Axwell perform a few times at Sunburn and he was always one of the many highlights of that event. Which makes me wonder just how amazing having all three of them perform together on one night will be. Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso are huge names in the EDM circuit and together they have created many dance tracks that have made clubbing and beach parties all that sweeter. The sad news of their dis-banding makes their ‘One Last Tour’ all the more enticing.

While we’re still uncertain about which cities they will be playing in, I for one will travel far and wide to see them. Yes, I would trek all the way to Delhi even. Think I’m nuts? Listen to the song above, you’ll see snippets of their tour and the concerts they’ve played, the energy and music alone, is enough to make even a newbie to SHM want to go for this ONE LAST show. Thank You Submerge for introducing us to SHM and for being a huge reason for why they’re coming to India.

Shoe bites: Got 15k? Would you buy Wendell Rodricks or FCUK?

‘Think before you buy’…This is a motto I’ve had to harshly consider, especially when it’s mid-month and your funds are rapidly depleting. However, if you really use some practical thought and a whole lot of common sense, you’ll see that your thinking will have you spending on the right things.

A good example of this is what I call the FCUK Wendell scenario. At Lakme Fashion Week winter/festive 2012, I saw the most beautiful minimalist dress from designer Wendell Rodricks. A dress that no matter how many times you wear it, will be appreciated and remain timeless. Having gone to the stall post show, I was pleasantly surprised by the price of the dress. The sales lady told me that it was approximately 14,900rs. 15,000rs and you can grab yourself a timeless Wendell creation. Money well invested.

A month from fashion week, browsing through Palladium mall, I find myself looking at a classic sequined dress, that I thought would be perfect for a friend’s post rokha cocktail party. Having seen it at FCUK, I presumed the dress would set me back about 5-7 thousand, boy was I wrong. Walking in I realized that I was staring at a price tag of exactly 14999rs. Unfathomable, even Zara has dresses for less.

You see my predicament, it’s a matter of value; what gives you more value. Considering FCUK is at every major mall in the country, there will be at least, 10 (or more) women who will have bought the same dress. Whereas only a handful of those Wendell dresses will be made, therefore making this a better purchase. I think both dresses are gorgeous in their own way, and if styled right can be worn numerous times. Yet, I’d put my money on real designer, real luxury, not a high street brand that in time will give way due to mass production. Not to mention that an adept tailor could probably make a version of the FCUK dress.

What’s your verdict?
