Sadly that next stage was not to be. rip Avicii

Adios Avicii

“Thank you for all the initiatives taken to honour Tim, with public gatherings, church bells ringing out his music, tributes at Coachella and moments of silence around the world. “We are grateful for the privacy during this difficult time. Our wish is that it continues that way.” The family didn’t reveal any further details surrounding the DJ’s death. Fellow electronic dance music (EDM) artists, fans and musicians shared their memories of the DJ. Kygo dedicated a portion of his Coachella performance to Avicii, while in Stockholm,

The music world was in shock last month following the sudden death of Avicii. His family praised fans and other musicians for their tributes, which included church bells “ringing out his music” and tributes at Coachella. A statement read “Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. “An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress. “When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music. He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer.”

the city where he was born, thousands gathered to remember him. Silence was followed by his songs being blasted out with everyone singing and dancing. Musicians around the world remembered the star as a “genius” who was “sensitive and humble”. Calvin Harris called him “a beautiful soul, passionate and extremely talented with so much more to do”; while Diplo described him as “the gold standard” and “the best of this

generation”. Fellow dance artist Marshmello said “At a loss for words. Rest easy brother.” “Nobody can deny what he has accomplished and done for modern dance music,” added Deadmau5. Avicii, one of EDM’s early pioneers, had previously spoken about issues with his health. In 2012 he was hospitalised with acute pancreatitis - a condition which led to the removal of his gallbladder and appendix in 2014. Two years ago he quit touring due to health reasons. A frequent visitor to Marbella, Avicii played Oliva Valere nightclub in 2013 and was back in 2017 to chill out. “Thank you @jonolsson1 for letting me borrow Casa Camo these last couple weeks, I had an amazing time in Marbella” he posted on Instagram. On his official website, Avicii wrote ‘We all reach a point in our lives and careers where we understand what matters the most to us. For me it’s creating music. That is what I live for, what I feel I was born to do. ’The next stage will be all about my love of making music to you guys. It is the beginning of something new’.

Charlie’s broke!

shared a romantic kiss

Owes $5MILL in tax

Charlie Sheen reportedly owes the government almost $5 million in back taxes from 2015. The actor has an outstanding debt for $4,967,376.41, according to the US press. Sheen, 52, was once the highest-paid actor on network television, receiving $1.8 million per episode for “Two and a Half Men.” Sheen revealed in 2015 that he was HIV-positive. Now, he is so broke that he was forced to cut child support payments to his exes Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller two years ago. He is currently trying to sell his Mulholland Estates mansion for a whopping $9,999,999. Lets hope he sells it soon!

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are back together and have been seen kissing in public. The exes shared a romantic kiss on the street in the Soho neighbourhood of New York last month after announcing their split in March. The former One Direction singer and Victoria’s Secret model sparked rumours they were rekindling their romance. Zayn was spotted heading into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment before re-emerging the following day in exactly the same clothes. Not only that, eagle-eyed fans had noticed Gigi had liked one of his Instagram posts promoting his new album. Arghh young love!

Destiny’s Child are set to reunite once again on Beyonce’s upcoming On The Run Tour II. Queen B is planning to invite former bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams to perform some of the band’s iconic tracks with her at select dates across the world. It comes after the US group stunned fans by making a surprise appearance at Beyonce’s headline gigs at Coachella festival in California last month. A source said: “Beyonce worked tirelessly on her Coachella headline performance but the crowning moment was her medley with Kelly and Michelle. They really enjoyed working together again after so long and now Bey is keen for them to be part of On The Run II. That’s one less thing for President Trump to worry about!

Shaft claims he discovered the 25-year-old in 2015 and had a huge impact on her meteoric rise to fame over the past year. “Since discovering Cardi B in 2015, Shaft has played an integral role in developing her music career and public image,” Shaft’s spokesperson said in a statement to Variety.

The Daily Mail is reporting the 27-year old singer may also write music for the film by the “Slumdog Millionaire” and “Trainspotting” director.

Piercing power! Christina at it again

Christina Aguilera who at one time had as many as 12 body piercings - shared a photo of herself getting a new hole in her right ear lobe with her Twitter followers. Christina, 37, captioned the photo: “Forgot how much I love getting pierced ... so euphoric for me ... wonder what else I should get done again [sic]” The ‘Dirrty’ singer once had 12 body piercings, including in her vagina, navel, tongue, lower lip, ears and right nipple. But the pop superstar - who is mother to 10-yearold son Max and three-year-old daughter Summer - took them all out except for the one in her nipple.

Really Ryan? Deadpool a story of kindness??

I’ll take you under my wing lad.

We think Ryan Reynolds had his tongue firmly in his cheek when discussing film Deadpool 2. Out on May 18, Ryan said “Tone is so critical in these movies and at the heart of Deadpool is always a very emotional story. ” “So Deadpool 2 is really, at its core, about how one act of kindness can change the world,” Ryan continued. “It’s sort of a nature versus nurture story at its heart and that’s critical to the film as a whole. But at the end of the day it’s got to be an engrossing story and that’s the thing that we were most focused on from the get-go.” Nature, nurture and extreme superhero violence too! We can’t wait!

Jay Kay

With Jamiroquai confirmed to play Marbella this summer, Hot Marbella discovers ten things about Jay Kay - ‘The Cat in the Hat’

Jamiroquai

sunday

22 july

46

l

@Starlite Marbella time: 22.30h may 2018 HOT


1

His mum was quite famous Jay Kay’s mum is Karen Kay, a singer, actress and entertainer who had her own TV show in the 80s. Jay was raised by his mother, ‘partly in rural Suffolk and partly in rural Devon’, he says. So he’s a bit of a country boy at heart

2

He was a notorious ladies’ man Jay Kay dated model Heidi Klum, singer Kylie Minogue and most famously, TV presenter Denise van Outen, who he lived with for three years. He also waxed lyrical about actress Winona Ryder’s ferocious sexual appetite during their fleeting relationship That’s an impressive list of exs!

3

He’s settled down now Jay Kay confirmed that he married long-term partner Maria when he thanked his ‘wife and daughters’ at an awards bash in London. He accidentally let slip that he’d tied the knot to the mother of his two daughters, Carla, two, and sevenmonth-old Tallulah. He kept that very quiet!

4

He’s a petrol head Jay Kay has a legendary car collection and has admitted to owning over 100 classics – so far. He famously dropped a cool £1m on a bright green Ferrari - the only one in the world – and classic cars often appear in his videos! If we were worth an estimated 40 million, we would by a decent motor too!

5

He’s a pretty good driver He may have a car collection, but he knows how to drive as well. Jay Kay beat Simon Cowell by onetenth of a second and held the fastest time in BBC car show Top Gear and also got an award for the best dance moves on learning he had beaten the X Factor boss! We’d dance with joy too!

6

Danni and Cheryl aren’t fans Before Jamiroquai performed on The X Factor, Jay Kay was quoted by The Sun talking about Cheryl

Cole and Dannii Minogue, two of the show’s judges: “What are they going to tell me about f**king music? When have you ever done anything? You’re useless. The pair of you. I mean, you look great, and I’d like to f**king sh*g you, but that’s all.” During his performance the pair talked continuously and refused to applaud at the end or stand up Opps!

7

He loves Marbella. Jay Kay has been a regular vistor to Marbella, filming the video to “Love Foolosophy” with Heidi Klum at Finca La Concepcion and driving up the Ronda road. And Hot’s editor once bumped into him at Pangea, where he uttered the immortal line “I really like your music”. DOH! Highly trained journalist our Editor. Always asks the right question!

8

He’s a reformed Party Animal Jay Kay turned his back on his party lifestyle because he became fed-up with his repeated run-ins with police. “I’m a good boy now. I got forced into it, really, by our friendly local constabulary.Let’s just say that Savile Row police station might as well have the Jay Kay suite” he said after numerous brushes with the law. Wise move!

9

Jamiroquai are still packing them in Tickets for their Roundhouse show in London last sold out in less than a minute. For a group that hadn’t released music in seven years - until 2017 Automaton - it just proves just how truly iconic they are. We are not surprised. They are brilliant live!

10

He’s the full package! Finally Jay Kay claims he’s got a huge manhood. As a lover of fast cars he denies that men who have fast motors are trying to compensate for their small package. He said: “I don’t mean to be funny, but I’ve never had any complaints. It’s not true! I’m very happy with my willy!” Glad that’s out in the open...let me rephrase that! HOTMagazine.es

Why the future Mrs. Harry Windsor is much more than just a pretty face! Profile: Giles Brown

M

eghan Markle instantly became one of the most famous women in the world when her engagement to Prince Harry was announced. Since meeting in London through friends in July 2016, media coverage of their romance has been so intense— and much of it so unpleasant— that Prince Harry was moved to issue a statement asking the press and public, essentially, to back off. Remarkably though Meghan has

handled the frenzy calmly “It has its challenges, and it comes in waves—some days it can feel more challenging than others,” she says. “And right out of the gate it was surprising the way things changed. But I still have this support system all around me, and, of course, my boyfriend’s support.” And it’s fair to say that Prince Harry, once dubbed the “Party Prince” is smitten. “So the fact that I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly was sort of confirmation to me that everything, all the stars were aligned, everything was just perfect” he says. “It was this beautiful woman just sort of literally tripped and fell into my life”. Markle has always had a supportive background, “I was born and raised in Los Angeles, a California girl who lives by the ethos that most things can be cured with either yoga, the beach, or a few avocados,” she once wrote. Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, was a successful lighting director in Hollywood; he lit the popular sitcom “Married . . . with Children” and, for 35 years, “General Hospital”. Markle says, “What’s so incredible, you know, is that my

parents split up when I was two, I never saw them fight. We would still take vacations together. My dad would come on Sundays to drop me off, and we’d watch “Jeopardy!” eating dinner on TV trays, the three of us. . . . We were still so close-knit.” Markle’s parents “crafted the world around me to make me feel like I wasn’t different, but special,” she wrote in 2015. As dolls in the 1980s were generally sold in sets of black and white, for Christmas one year her father bought “a black mum doll, a white dad doll, and a child in each colour. My dad had taken the sets apart and customised my family.”

She’s got warm elegance, though her style is hard to pin down. It’s classy and timeless

Problems began in the seventh grade, when she had to complete a mandatory census by checking one of four boxes: “white, black, Hispanic, or Asian.” The pale, freckled, curly-haired Markle felt that to choose either white or black would be a rejection of one of her parents. Her teacher told her to check “Caucasian” because she looked white, but she couldn’t. She ended up leaving the boxes unchecked. “I left my identity blank—a question mark, an absolute incomplete— much like how I felt,” she once said. When she turned 18, she left for Northwestern University, in Evanston, Illinois—becoming the first person in her family to graduate from college—and double-majored in theatre and international relations. In line with her international-relations major, Markle worked at the U.S. Embassy in Argentina in her senior year, “so I had been in a completely different world and then suddenly jumped into this one.”


“Suits”, in which Markle played ambitious paralegal turned lawyer Rachel Zane, first brought the actress to wide attention. (Before that she’d appeared briefly in the movies “A Lot Like Love” and “Horrible Bosses” and had minor roles on television in the sciencefiction drama Fringe and the soap opera General Hospital, among others.) When the engagement was announced, the tabloids highlighted that Meghan came from East L.A. with the Daily Star Online splashing “Prince Harry could marry into gangster royalty—his new love is from a crime ridden Los Angeles neighbourhood”; “the royal’s future mother-in-law still lives in Crenshaw, surrounded by bloodbath robberies and druginduced violence.” So how does Meghan handle the tabloid nonsense about her and Harry? “I can tell you that

at the end of the day I think it’s really simple,” she says. “We’re two people who are really happy and in love. We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception. Nothing about me changed. I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship.” “I don’t read any press. I haven’t even read press for Suits. The people who are close to me anchor me in knowing who I am. The rest is noise.” Meghan credits the rock-solid support from her close friends for helping to sustain her. The international tennis great Serena Williams is one of those friends. “Her personality just shines,” Serena said

The royal family is about to get a stylish new addition. All eyes are on Meghan Markle as her royal wedding with Prince Harry is less than a month away. The former actress’s style has been on our radar for quite some time now - with her penchant for ladylike dresses, structured short suits, and elegant trousers, making her a natural fit into the royal family’s signature style.

about Markle, who asked her advice on how to handle some of the more extreme results of fame, such as paparazzi showing up at her house and chasing her. “I told her, ‘You’ve got to be who you are, Meghan. You can’t hide. ´’” Another close friend is actress Abigail Spencer, who says, “She’s got warm elegance, though her style is hard to pin down. It’s classy and timeless. When you’re talking to her, you feel like you’re the only person on the planet. And it’s just wonderful to see her so in love.” And for the future? “We’re a couple,” explains Meghan. “We’re in love. I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.”

about Markle, who asked her advice on how to handle some of the more extreme results of fame, such as paparazzi showing up at her house and chasing her. “I told her, ‘You’ve got to be who you are, Meghan. You can’t hide. ´’” Another close friend is actress Abigail Spencer, who says, “She’s got warm elegance, though her style is hard to pin down. It’s classy and timeless. When you’re talking to her, you feel like you’re the only person on the planet. And it’s just wonderful to see her so in love.” And for the future? “We’re a couple,” explains Meghan. “We’re in love. I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.”

If beauty really is more than skin deep, we need to turn our attention to what goes on inside and, whether that’s changing our eating habits or looking after our bones, the results will shine though to our outer appearance.

BORN TO DANCE! Lee Dawson gets the lowdown on the extremely talented, Anna Sologub and finds out what drives her, and her ambition to be the very best dance school on the coast!

Lee Dawson specialises in Martial Arts, Self Defense, Hybrid Karate and Thai Fit. Not one to brag but his list of qualification is incredible. He holds several black belts! Claim to fame - he has trained the Saudi Arabian princess in her palace and numerous Hollywood stars. @gympanattamarbella +34 674 61 44 77

a

Anna was born and raised in Moldova where she began her career at the tender age of six. “I finished at the top of the class the Choreographic Lyceum of Chisinau, where I specialised in DanceSport (Ballroom and Latin dancing) among other art disciplines. Even though I had opportunities in foreign language studies and fine arts, I chose a career in dance. As a young adult I joined the prestigious Codreanca DanceSport Club, multiple winners of IDSF European and World Formation Championships” Anna explains.

l

may, 2018 HOT

Anna’s first professional opportunity came at the age of 17. “The stage became my favourite place that brought out the best in me” remembers Anna. “I went on to master other dance styles (like jazz, ballet and contemporary dance), I undertook private lessons and workshops with world-class performers and instructors and I was lucky to study under renowned choreographers throughout my career” she continues. “I also performed around the world as a lead dancer in major revues and stage productions, beautiful and sweet memories I cherish every day”. Anna relocated to Marbella in 2008, and fell in love with the sunny weather and the quality of living however she noticed an enormous lack of dance culture. With her impressive experience she had the idea of opening a dance school. “I started literally with one student, now we count over 50 and the numbers continue growing”. “I am content with the overall progress of our school, the girls have started to compete


Anna Sologub

with success on a regular basis at national competitions, and perform in festivals and events”. “We also are very proud to announce that from September 2018, the next academic year, our school will be a part of the Private Education and Professional Development of Dance in Spain, with the programme and exams are recognised nationally”. Dance education for children is highly beneficial for both physical and overall health, social skills and academic results. As Anna explains, “Dancing increases stamina, strength and flexibility, improves co-ordination and balance, corrects poor posture and increases cardiovascular health. Dancing is highly social and children learn new communication skills, how to trust, co-operate and work as part of a team without having to compete with their peers” “Dance requires discipline and focus it improves a child’s listening ability, memory/ spatial awareness, and awareness of others within a group” continues Anna. “Dancing uses both sides of the brain simultaneously in a co-ordinated manner, one half is controlling the physicality and movement, the other the creative and artistic expression. Children who dance are given the opportunity to deepen and

enhance their self-esteem; through hard work and performance children can feel adept, capable and able - a deeply satisfying and nurturing process. This in turn serves to further motivate a child to strive further. Children often find dance a great emotional release, those suffering from stress or other challenges can find ease in the creative expression of dance. As kids develop a greater sense of their physicality, they start to feel more comfortable in their own skin, and develop a positive attitude towards their own bodies”. Although deeply fulfilling, Anna explains her chosen field is not all plain sailing, “Being a dance teacher is not the easiest or the most glamorous job in the world. It is also not the one with the highest pay or the most consistent rewards”. “Sometimes I feel exhausted. Sometimes I become discouraged by an unkind remark or overwhelmed by the endless work. But there are many reasons I do what I do. Although I appreciate the thank-you cards that my students give me through the year, my greatest gift is watching a class of beginning students’ right before their first performance and realise what they have accomplished in their first year of dance. To notice the technical improvement in an

each class gives me the opportunity to mold them into something new and better upper-level class over the course of an academic year” “My students are visual proof of my accomplishments in the last ten months. Even those who began with nothing are now able to step onstage in front of their parents and friends to display a talent they might not have discovered or developed without my knowledge and encouragement”. Anna sums up perfectly what dance means to her and her students. “Every child in my class is a “work of art in progress,” and each class gives me the opportunity to mold them into something new and better”.

have a confession to make. Although I am no way a Buddhist and am not too hot on the whole concept of reincarnation – although there are a few people out there that I fervently wish would come back as bugs so that I could swat them (not very Buddhist I know) - if I did get to have my time on Earth again, then I would want to come back as an Italian. Perhaps it’s the culture and history. Maybe it’s the innate style and the effortless cool that they are born with, or as a motor racing nut myself, maybe it’s the passion of the tifosi – the Italian racing fans that flock to Monza to cheer on their beloved Ferrari team. Most probably though, it’s the food and drink. While other foodies rave about cutting edge cuisine or fusions of culinary cultures, I could very happily live on Italian food for the rest of my life. So I jumped at the chance to check out Incontro in Puerto Banus. Located on the Cristamar Centre just opposite El Corte Ingles, the main dining area is a covered decked terrace, perfect for enjoying the spring sunshine and watching the bustle of Banus street life. It took me milliseconds for a huge smile to spread across my face as a I realized that Incontro was 100% authentic Italian.

Everything from the flour to the tomatoes comes from Italy, and we have an authentic Neapolitan oven as well”. 84

Incontro has only recently opened in Banus but the sister restaurant in San Pedro has been hugely popular with locals and visitors in the know for years. We started the meal with wonderful Focaccia and Antipasti that included beautifully grilled vegetables, Palma ham, salamis, and a buffalo mozzarella that was so fresh we had suspicions that they were keeping buffalo in the downstairs car park. The gambas pil pil Incontro has us all dipping into the brilliant sauce with our bread, something that usually happens when the Hot team

devour this dish! We tried two pizzas – the Pizza Incontro – ham, Parma ham, salami, ricotta cheese and parmesan cheese and Pizza Incontro Blanca Trufa mozzarella, shiodini mushrooms, egg and truffle, and let’s just say that they were so good that I took the left overs with me for later. And they tasted damn good for breakfast the following morning! For mains we chose the escalope with zingy lemon sauce and grilled vegetables, as well a Spaghetti Carbonara - a bone fide classic dish that was delicious, and finally an awe inspiring Tagliolini all olio di tartufo – strips of beef, cherry tomatoes, parmesan flakes and truffle oil – that was so good that members of the Hot team returned the next day to taste it again in their own time. I’ve been a big fan of Incontro for years and will be making it a regular on my list of restaurants. I may not have been lucky enough to have been born Italian, but at least I can eat Italian!

PUTTING THE FUNK INTO TAPAS Funky Tapas Gastro Bar

S

To be honest there hasn’t been a lot to shout about this winter. The endless days, weeks of rain have dampened everybody’s enthusiasm and had a major effect on most restaurants takings however one exception to the rule has to be the addition of Funky Tapas Gastro Bar.

ituated on the corner opposite the H10 Andalucia Plaza Hotel, Funky Tapas Gastro Bar has been a ‘ray of sunshine’ amongst the general doom and gloom. Since opening its doors at the end of 2017, the restaurant has been a storming success. Offering a stylish, modern interior and superb outside terrace, perfect for soaking in the afternoon sun, it is the food that is getting everyone talking. Tapas sized portions of your favourite international dishes has proved a real hit. The menu is

divided into 4 sections – From the Land, From the Sea, House Favourites and Vegetarian, and all offer a superb selection of irresistible dishes in bite sized portions and everyone proving to be someone’s favourite! Not ones to sit back and bask in their glory, owners Debbie and Julian have decided to add a few new dishes to the menu and kindly invited the Hot Team to a sample tasting last month to see what we thought of their latest additions. The first of the new dishes was a Caprese Salad and it has to be said, was extremely well

presented. With a balsamic reduction and green pesto drizzled over the mozzarella and tomato the dish looked a vibrance of colour. It seemed a shame to spoil it but as we each tried a mouthful it was obvious by the look on each of the team that it was a hit. The mozzarella was so fresh, the tomatoes juicy and the balsamic and pesto just added to make it exceptional. Next up was the Spiced Belly Pork served on a bed of Asian styled vegetables. WOW, not really much more we can say about this dish but WOW. The pork just fell away as you cut

into it and melted in your mouth on tasting. The spices and vegetables just added to make this a dish to remember and one the Hot Team guarantee will be a huge favourite. After spending the next 5 minutes waxing lyrical about the pork we were presented with the next dish, Butterflied Panko Prawns (3) served with lime alioli. Again the presentation was exquisite as was the food. The prawns were crispy yet succulent and the lime alioli dipping sauce was just magnificent. The final dish was a dessert, not just any old dessert but a ‘square slice of heaven’ that just happened to go by the name of a Salted Caramel Brownie. Now it must be said that this dessert should come with a public health warning as once the smooth caramel hits the back of your throat you are addicted! With food as good as this Funky Tapas has proved itself the perfect place to banish the wet weather and welcome back the sunshine this spring!

outside of the beach, again this is rare. I do see girls with the most beautiful cover-ups on, I am now being told this is also not acceptable and neither is fancy dress. Where are these people making these ridiculous laws coming from, surely it can not be legal to tell people what to wear? The powers to be won’t be satisfied until they stop all tourism in Marbella and then what? As the summer has started although its is still early, a friend of mine has started giving B12 Vitamin injections, I would strongly recommend this, not only for all the obvious health benefits that B12 gives, but also it is a great energy booster and a brilliant hangover cure – perfect for everybody, she is mobile so if interested call Audrey: +34 686 946 915. I went to the opening of the Ocean Club and what an opening it was! It is always so impressive with the décor and entertainment, although I do feel it is a bit expensive, compared to what is used to be a few years ago, however it is still a great night out, and the fireworks were incredible as usual! Let’s get the season started!!!

Where are these people making these ridiculous laws coming from?

S

o, the season started early, especially for TIBU and what an opening night! It was incredible - so busy. We all knew it would be a great night but it was beyond expectations, a sure sign of a great summer for TIBU. I love a beach day, it’s my favourite thing to do on a Sunday. The weather, however, has been so hit and miss, so I have been on a little beach tour with very little sun-bathing and lots of drinking and why not? I was so shocked to see Heaven Beach burnt to the ground, I was planning a Sunday session there and when I arrived it was still smouldering. What an absolute shame, it was a great beach bar, so I went further along to Sonora beach, which was absolutely lovely. It’s very quirky but the food is fabulous and if anybody is going there I recommend the octopus washed down with Rosé wine, really delicious. I also went to one of my favourites Mistral Beach. Again when I got there the wind was cold so nothing else for it but sit in restaurant and eat and drink. They make a great cocktail there and always a fabulous vibe, they actually closed up around us. I still don’t understand why beach bars close so early. My next one was the very fabulous Beach House, they have had a refurbishment inside, however I always sit outside

and surprisingly the sun was out. It’s a bit of a trek to get to but once there always a great afternoon, good food and great entertainment. I attended the United Nationalities Marbella Summit, hosted by the lovely Nicole King from Marbella Now – RTV Marbella, - a great event to bring people together focussing on local charities, including Triple A, orphans and the elderly and also on Marbella as a whole. Please contact Nicole if anybody would like to get involved with any charities. I had the opportunity to talk briefly about what I believe is an unnecessary persecution on the British tourists, I totally understand and agree nobody wants to see vomiting in the streets and the like, however this is a very, very small minority and certainly not the majority, but is being portrayed that all Brits act like this which is certainly not true. There are new laws coming into play that fines will be issues for guys walking around with no tops on, I am in the Port every single day and very rarely see this, it is usually a dad pushing a pram with his family, girls being fined for wearing bikinis

hot What do you love most about life here? km The freedom to do what you want when you want. I get so much time to spend with my girlfriend, my daughter, my dogs and my good friends.

Describe your average day? Up ladders painting clean lines. Brush in one hand phone in the other organizing Kinky Malinki or ranting about my football team! hot km

hot What’s Kinky Malinki’s summer looking like? km Banging as per usual hot Why do you think that Kinky Malinki has had such success? 15 seasons is pretty extraordinary, why do you think it has the staying power that so many others lack. km I had a vision and a formula

hot What do you miss from back home? km Mainly just my close Family & friends... Oh and Pie n Mash!

We can really feel that summer’s on its way now, what does that mean for you? How does your life change? km It just becomes busier, hot

Menllizon A Passion for Percussion A

There’s nothing quite like live music to liven up a normal “night out”. Yes, a singer or band can spice up an otherwise dull scene but what I’m referring to are accompanying musicians: trumpeters, saxophonists, violinist and percussionists who can convert even the most predictable songs into something completely unpredictable, fresh and new. This trend of having musicians accompany the music being played by a DJ started in nightclubs in the late nineties, early noughties and is still very popular today. The scene in Marbella is no exception and is lucky enough to boast some of the best. Menzillon - a drummer and percussion duo formed by Pablo Lopez and Xarate

116

l

MAY, 2018 HOT

Eddine – is a perfect example. Pablo and Xarate are two musicians with more than ten years’ experience in diverse musical genres including jazz, funk, latin and flamenco.


They have performed in major international event locations such as Cavalli Club (Dubai), Marbela Beach Club (India) and Saidia Festival (Africa). Nationally, they perform regularly at Nikki Beach (Mallorca), Funky Buddha beach (Marbella), Mana (Murcia), Le marche (Huelva), Oliva Valere (Marbella), Tokay (Almeria), La Sala (Puerto Banus) and Kube (Algeciras)

Menzillon combine music, light, water and percussion, mixing classic and genuine sound to the latest musical genres such as: house, dance, future house, etc. Their performances are created with enthusiasm, professionalism and entertaining choreography and they interact with the public throughout. A sub-standard night out rapidly converts into one to remember thanks to Menzillon. Catch them live in action when you can.
