New Mura Masa alert!

If you love Mura Masa as much as we do here at the Basement you’re gonna love this new track which features crazy adlib rapper ‘Desiigner’. This song is a certified summer banger, and even though it’s cold here in Perth we can already tell you’ll be turning up to this in the clubs for sure.

Mura Masa has been killing the music scene lately after taking off from the hit featuring ASAP Rocky ‘Lovesick’. He’s already had another hit this year with Nao ‘Firefly’ and that killed the charts. This is defiantly the year for Mura Masa, we can only hope he drops an album soon!

Ikea Yeezys?

Yep, you heard right! ‘Mache 275’ as he is known on Instagram has made some of the craziest customs you’ve ever seen with an Ikea colourway. Ikea has been no stranger to hype recently with an Ikea face mask being made and also people taking the iconic Ikea bag and turning it into things like hats and tote bags.

Considering how good they look maybe Kanye and Adidas should officially collaborate with Ikea and Mache275 to make this happen because for a lot of people this would be a must cop.

Perth Lotto Win

PERTH office men’s lives have changed dramatically after they we’re the lucky ones with the correct numbers on their lotto ticket. The mass group of fourteen men went splits in a syndicate lottery ticket winning $4.2 million division one prize, winning $285,000 each. The win came at a great time for the group with many of them having recently lost their jobs and “It was starting to look pretty tough financially for quite a few of us,” they said. As all adults have they have responsibilities i.e. School fees, mortgages and just everyday bills.

The lucky ticket was purchased form Flinders Square Lucky Lotto in Yokine. They weren’t actually aware of the winnings until they scanned the ticket, realising the win and almost falling to the ground in shock & happiness.

Scott Disick and Bella Thorne are dating, wait a minute WHAT?!?!

 

A repost came out early this week that 33 year old Scott and 19 year old Bella were seen out on the town together on what looked like a date.

Since then more reports have come out about the two and what people close to them think, especially Scott’s famous baby mamma Kourtney Kardashian and she is not happy. A lot of people have been wondering if Scott has done this to get under Kourtney’s skin and if so, it’s definitely worked but I mean can you really blame her?

Bella Thorne2

Bella and the Kardashian family have known each other and been close for year, Bella and Kylie Jenner are even good friends, so the family has watched Bella grow up. Kourtney is not alone in her dislike of the pair. Bella’s friends and family don’t like it either as they are worried she will get hurt, but according to a report Bella is not taking the relationship very seriously saying it’s just a bit of fun. This whole relationship, serious or not, has definitely got people asking “is it really appropriate?”. Well either way it’s definitely got people pretty weirded out and I don’t think it’s the last time we are going to hear about this couple.

When you like your plots twisted…….

If you are a connoisseur of fine movies, like we are, you are always on the lookout for stories that make you gasp. Good, so glad you agree on the importance of plot. Bad guy kills wife/child, man  tracks down and kills bad guy is getting a bit thin these days.

So, let’s go back to 1957 – I heard that gasp! It’s a black and white movie – another gasp. Seriously! You guys say don’t judge, so what are those gasps?

Marlene Dietrich

Witness for the Prosecution really is one of the greatest movies ever made. Nominated for 6 Oscars including Best Picture, it’s a phenomenal story of a veteran British barrister defending his client in a murder trial that has surprise after surprise. Whilst the film may be 60 years old, it’s still one of the best courtroom dramas we have ever seen and that is underlined by the 100% score from Rotten Tomatoes.

 

Lorde knows it’s all go

What a fantastic song this one is, Green light written by New Zealand singer and songwriter Lorde. Released on the 2nd March 2017 through Universal Music New Zealand as the lead singer from the upcoming sophomore album, Melodrama. It was co-written with Jack Antonoff, Joel Little and Lorde who also handled production with Antonoff and Frank Dukes.

Musically Green Light is described as an electro-pop, dance-pop and alternative pop song. It is said to be set in common time with a driving tempo of 129 beats per minute. The Hook in the song “I’m waiting for it, that green light-I want it” has reviewers interpreting the green light as a street signal that gives the listener permission to move on to their future.

Gang coming to town

Aussie favourites Gang Of Youths have released another new song to give us a hint of what is to come on their new upcoming album ‘Go Father In Lightness’! But that’s not all; they have also released dates for their national tour! The band will be playing their tunes around the country between August and September.

The album drops on the 18th of August, just in time for their first show in Brisbane. The band must be saving the best until last as their final stop will be with us Perthians! You can catch them playing at Metropolis in Fremantle on Saturday, the 16th of September.

The Basement Bake Sale Launch

We may have been broadcasting for a couple of months now but we finally officially launched The Basement amidst much fanfare last Tuesday with bake sales at the Leederville and Northbridge TAFE campuses. For weeks we’d been planning- who knew that something as simple as a bake sale would have so many logistical considerations? For most of us it was our first ever attempt at building an event from the ground up and the amount of things we had to think about was massive. OHS? Building a cash float? Making sure we had a tarp in case it rained? Couldn’t we just put some cake on a table and be done with it? Apparently not.

We spent six weeks learning about how to plan and execute an event. While it could have easily spiralled into complete disaster everyone pulled their weight- whether it was through finding all the tiny bits and pieces we needed, writing up a safety report, scripting or recording promos, and, of course, baking a ton of food.

While on the day the weather was kind of terrible (after weeks of sunshine) that didn’t dampen our enthusiasm! At the Leederville campus, we sold brownies, cupcakes, mini doughnuts, cheese sticks, and a variety of presents for mother’s day- candles, wine holders, artwork, etc. The Northbridge campus had an incredible array of cupcakes and muffins.

The bake sale was primarily an opportunity for us to promote our brand and encourage new listeners but it was also a fundraising event. Between the two teams we raised more than $1400, which is an obscene amount of money! The bake sale has become a yearly tradition for Diploma students here at TAFE in Leederville and we managed to break the previously held profit record by a massive margin. We had a really successful day and we’d like to thank everyone who took the time to come down and support us.

 

2 Cancelled Girls

Season 6 of 2 Broke Girls, the once successful CBS sitcom, will be its last, as announced last week. The show focused on the working class struggles of two young women who dreamed of opening their own business, but after six seasons, the show has been cut short, apparently due to a lack of viewership. Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, the titular characters and IRL besties, posted their goodbyes on Instagram after the announcement of the cancellation.

The season six finale episode experienced a US viewership rating of 4.57 million on its air date on April 17th. The show had been previously aired in Australia via the Channel 9 network, however they had stopped airing the show back in December 2016. Some viewers have voiced their frustration online at the show being cancelled.
