23. Talking Talent: DJ Greg Downey on humbly restarting, releasing albums and DJing around the world.
Having graced the decks on almost every continent, the Belfast born Greg Downey is no amateur when it comes to the art of DJing. Having impressed the promoter of Gategrasher while playing at an afterparty in Ibiza, Greg was asked to play at Space the following week. Very shortly afterwards, Greg broke through the UK trance scene playing at major shows such as Gatecrasher, Godskitchen, Slinky, Inside Out, Goodgreef, and Passion. What was every aspiring DJ’s dream to travel the world soon became a reality for Greg. He was crisscrossing the globe flying from New York City to Sydney to Ibiza to Shanghai to Buenos Aires to London playing to massive crowds. Greg recorded his first “Live As album” on Discover from the mega Planet Love festival in Northern Ireland, which captured Greg's energy as a DJ and was featured as "Album of the Month" in Mixmag. Soon the prestigious BBC Radio One came calling and Greg appeared as a guest on Eddie Halliwell’s radio show. It came as no surprise when Greg was voted into DJ Mag Top 100 poll coming in at number 82. This was a huge accomplishment for such a young talent. As Greg’s DJing career was taking off, so were his productions. Catching the attention of John Digweed with his remix of “Heaven Scent”, Greg solidified himself as a producer when his remix claimed the number one spot on Beatport for over a month. His remix was championed by Sasha, Eric Prydz, Paul van Dyk, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren and John Digweed. Greg was then snapped up by Paul van Dyk for his label Vandit. His first release “Stadium” was a huge success which became Mixmag's Cream Ibiza anthem of 2008. Greg was also chosen by Paul van Dyk to remix his track “New York City” which appeared on his “Hands on In Between” album. Working tirelessly in the studio, Greg started to produce hit after hit. His track “Global Code” on Vandit was featured in every Paul Van Dyk’s set for close to a year and his following single Show Time for Dutch heavy weights Spinnin was number 2 on Beatport. Having teamed up with the lead singer Paul Draper from Mansun in 2010 to remake their classic track “Wide Open Space”; it became the track of the year having crossed over to daytime Radio One with support from Scott Mills and Vernon Kay and was chosen by Mixmag as their tune of the month. This track was later snapped up by major label EMI for a full release. 2011 saw Greg up the game once again when his remix of Everything But The Girl – Missing was signed to Warner Music. Greg’s mix was released alongside Fedde Legrand’s and reached number 1 on Beatport and was number 1 on Australia’s leading radio station Radio Metro. Greg had three more top ten hits with Spinnin records, Knight Moves , Game Face and Sunrise. Greg and Simon Patterson teamed up with English vocalist Bo Bruce to create the anthem “ Come To Me” , This was an instant Ibiza anthem at Amnesia and Space and across the globe. Wanting to explore the darker side of his sounds, Greg developed his R.I.C.O alias to bring out the deeper underground techno sound. As Greg explains, “I think it’s good to try new things and to develop yourself in the studio, I love growing as an artist and developing” after receiving great feedback from fans and fellow DJs of the tracks released under the R.I.C.O alias. Game Face and Afraid Of The Dark have been firm favourites of Markus Schultz featuring on his Global DJ Broadcast show several times. Greg’s diversity also saw him snapped up by Gareth Emery’s Garuda for his debut release with Crazy For You in 2012. Supported regularly by the likes of Armin van Buuren, Gareth Emery, Paul van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Sander van Doorn, Above and Beyond, Greg's many achievements, alongside his outstanding technical ability will ensure he continues to reach great heights.

#LifeIS colour - How four days hard work helped reduce stress, depression and anxiety for others
Less Screen Time, More Me Time. 22% of people are suffering from Anxiety. 22% of people are suffering from Depression. 77% of people suffer from Stress. This is a massive problem across the globe and it continues to grow. So I wanted to complete a project that would help reduce these levels in people around the world. So, using the techniques that many Doctors, phycologists, therapists and professionals recommend, I designed a series of books around 'Colour Therapy.' So, by the time you listen to this podcast, the Life is Colour selection of books should be available via Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Patrick-Hamilton-Walsh/e/B0055JDFVW?ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_6&qid=1607784544&sr=8-6 - Mindful Colouring for Adults - Mindful Colouring for LGBTQIA+ - Mindful Colouring during Lockdown - Mindful Colouring for Highly Spiritual People - Mindful Colouring for Teens - Mindful Colouring for Boys - Mindful Colouring for Girls This is the perfect way to detach, log off and unwind. Tap into your creativity and escape from the digital world of screens, scrolling and notifications. What if, just for 111 minutes in a day, you allowed yourself to find happiness in the simplicity of colour? Colouring enables you to remain in the moment and escape from the distractions that feed the negative emotions which have become so prevalent in our modern world. This creative collection of designs in a variety of patterns, styles and skill levels helps promote meditative mindfulness, contemplative relaxation and provides for a calming escape. The most important thing is that you take care of yourself and your loved ones during these unique times. Much love Patrick

19. Talking Talent: Sébastien Boudet, one of the world's greatest bakers, provides insight into the humility of excellence.
The philosophy of Sébastien Boudet "When I bake, the whole is incredibly important. For me, all ingredients are equally important and for me baking with passion and love is not just words - it is a philosophy, a lifestyle and a matter of integrity. In every pastry or sourdough bread I put all my knowledge and my values. It's my way of telling my loved ones that I love them. For me, it is an ideology to want to eat clean food. Food that does not destroy diversity, food that does not poison our soils, that does not have a negative impact on our climate, food that is not processed, refined, cleaned and E-numbered. In other words, my values are embedded in my products, they and I are one and the same and that is what you get when you shop with us."

She performed weekly at nightclubs she was still too young to legally enter and was eventually signed at 16 years old after creating enough media attention for herself to a six figure deal at Universal Interscope records and Sony Music Publishing. Lanz toured with Snoop Dogg, she was the opening act on a multi-city tour throughout the US and mentored by the legendary music producer Nile Rodgers who's best known for breaking Madonna into a world wide star. Lanz won the BMI young “Songwriters On The Rise” award alongside the then budding star known as Lady Gaga and was managed by music industry veteran Dave Lory, former manager of Jeff Buckley, The Allman Brothers, and Courtney Love. In her early twenties she parted ways with the major record label system after experiencing the pitfalls of the big label machine. She in turn created her own record label “Innovators & Aviators” with her then business partner, and former A&R for Jay-Z ‘s Roc Nation. The entrepreneurial endeavor led Lanz to raise over 100K in funding from a female investor to launch the company. Pierce went on to release two independent albums & multiple music videos which she self directed under the “Innovators & Aviators” imprint. The two albums “Editors Eye” & “Los City” are available on Spotify and Apple Music, she received a great deal of press and critical approval from outlets such as Complex and VIBE .

Lanz made her film debut with "Hispanicus" a gritty coming of age tale about a young man growing up amidst the temptations and challenges he’s faced with living in the Bronx Ny during the tough era of the 1980's. Lanz was approached by the novelist of the story to adapt his book into film; the project which took two years to make wrapped in Spring 2019 and went on to see success. Lanz partnered with the Soho House to exclusively screen and premiere "Hispanicus" at cinemas across the US including in Nyc, La, Miami and Chicago & Internationally in theaters in both Canada and London. Lanz went on to tour with the film performing the soundtrack which she scored to the movie as well as doing speaking engagements on the filmmaking process.

Luminary takes a 360 approach to branding by crafting effective marketing and storytelling campaigns through visuals and commercial spots for luxury brands, beauty/wellness and tech companies.

08. Talking Talent: Europes leading Maitre de Cabine and Air hostess, Susanne Fiebiger, talks travel, passions and people.
"To put my 55 years into words is not that easy. My life is anything but boring, balanced or monotonous; it is and has always been intense, pulsating, not always easy and yet associated with enormous moments of happiness. My constant credo: nothing is impossible and everything comes well and can be solved. Allowing grief, showing joy and honesty is paramount, even if this is not well received in every situation." - Susanne Fiebiger Susanne grew up in Lucerne. But from an early age had only one dream: to become a flight attendant. At that time, Swiss Air was the big goal and everything she did only resulted in the fulfilment of this one goal. She moved to Brighton for several months to learn English. French was also a must to be accepted into Swiss Air, so she moved to French-speaking Switzerland, working as a nurse in a hospital, making money and learning French. Then in May 1988 the time had come. Susanne started my training as an Air Hostess. By 1990 she climbed swiftly through the ranks to become a purser. By the end of 1993 she was appointed Maitre de Cabine on long haul at only 28 years old and the youngest M / C on the entire SwissAir fleet. Today, still flying at Swiss Air as a first class flight attendant for family reasons, Susanne is a lady with a great zest for life and with many great stories to tell.
