Eggnog is not the only Christmas Punch

Just 5 days after Christmas and the night before New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will attempt to reclaim her title against newly-minted 135-pound Queenpin Amanda Nunes. Rousey apparently decided to make her long-awaited return to the Octagon after hearing my song Punchen from the latest PUMPA album, Get Phuked (that very moment captured in the photo above!). She’s long been the biggest, baddest female fighter on the planet, but suffered a shock defeat to Holly Holm in November last year and ha  More...

New album, new producer, new sound

Yep… there’s always a lot of news taking place in the PUMPA camp. I actually wrote this from the recording studio where I was laying down tracks for my next album ‘Get Phuked’. It was such an exciting project in which I reinvigorated the PUMPA sound by adding a new vocalist and some brilliant new musicians – more on that later, but this brings a whole new sound to my latest brand of ‘erotic pop’. I also recorded new video clips for several singles released off the album – one of my favourites, a complete re-work of an earlier track I  More...
