Last week I was invited by Paco Rabanne to join them in Brussels for a recording session with Guy Ivory who was the UK winner in their recent music competition. I was particularly excited as Paco Rabanne has been one of my favourite perfume brands for a while now and Black XS has to be the perfect night scent.
Back in April Paco Rabanne decided to create it’s own record label Black XS Records to help support the music industry. Backed my MTV they set out to find some new artists with the help of some music professionals along the way. The internet then got a chance to cast it’s vote resulting in 5 final winners who have all been recording two songs in Brussels to create a final Black XS album.
Along with three french winners and a spanish winner, Guy Ivory was chosen to represent the UK and has done a great job! I won’t give too much away but the two songs he has chosen sound amazing and you can check his Twitter out here but don’t forget to keep an eye out for the final two songs. I had a chance to talk to Guy who coincidentally lives local to me in London. You can tell that he has a real passion for music and has a real understanding of it which makes listening to his music particularly special.
I had never really spent much time in a recording studio before but it was so interesting to see everything behind the scenes. Especially as everyone appeared to be having such a fun time since the entire Paco Rabanne team are all very relaxed, friendly and with a certain je ne sais quoi that only the French can portrait.
To be kept updated with the Black XS record label and album check out the website here and Facebook Page. The Black XS perfume range has also welcomed the new Black XS Potion perfume into it’s family and I can not get enough of it. It’s already in my handbag as my favourite sexy evening scent (£39 for 50ml)
