Introduce yourself
Didi Ramlan

I run a full-service entertainment event management and solutions company, Frisson 369. We usually work on artist logistics and hospitality for shows but most recently we promoted our first show with Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals. And sometimes I moonlight as Yuna’s tour manager. 

Describe your style in 3 words?
Preppy-rock + balanced + statement

What does the Fred Perry Shirt mean to you?
The first thing that pops up when I think of the Fred Perry shirt is ska punk and images of rude boys and girls swirling in my head. Culturally, I don’t think there’s another piece of clothing that could personify a culture of a genre of music as easily as that. To think that if you see someone with an FP shirt with their top button done up, you can bet they know a thing or two about ska/punk or are at least a fan of music - that’s pretty cool.

What is the first song you played on repeat?
‘Bad’ by Michael Jackson.

What is one record you would keep forever?
Tragic Kingdom by No Doubt. That album probably shaped me more than I will ever know.

What is a song lyric that has inspired you?
“I'm just a girl in the world / That's all that you'll let me be” from ‘Just A Girl’ - No Doubt.

Growing up in Malaysia, I was acutely aware I wasn’t the stereotypical girl who likes to wear pretty dresses and play with dolls. I remember first listening to the song was like ‘gasp, is she really saying this?’, then I saw the video clip and I thought damn Gwen Stefani is such a badass - she’s this amazingly stylish and unapologetic frontwoman, doing push-ups while singing “I’ve had it up to here!”. She made me realize that there are many types of people in the world and I didn’t have to live up to what ‘society’ was telling me to be and I was perfectly fine the way I was!

What has been the best gig you've been to?
There’s so many! Like Jimmy Eat World, Singapore 2011 or the first show of Beyonce’s ‘2016 The Formation Tour’ - it was the first time she debuted that 60ft rotating LED tower. But my favourite is probably seeing Foo Fighters at Lollapalooza 2011. It started pissing down rain during of ‘My Hero’, like torrential rain and they didn’t miss a beat - the crowd was so loud singing along! I remember looking to the sky in the moshpit barely able to breathe and thinking “this is the best moment ever”. I lost my mind (and shoes) that night. I found my shoes in the mud as I was leaving the festival.

Who is your ultimate British musical icon?
It’s a tie between Pink Floyd and Spice Girls - the dichotomy between the two is stark but both groups have influenced the landscape of pop culture all over the world. Also, it pretty much sums up my musical spectrum.

A song that defines the teenage you?
‘Dammit’ by Blink 182.

What inspires you?
Nature and music - they take turns to inspire me. I’m such a fan of music and music culture, it’s really what I live for but the music “business” side of it can really get to you. So that’s when I turn to nature, I sit back and just observe and it just takes me to back to a place that makes me appreciate the life I have and excited about everything I do and experience.

'Let The Flames Begin' (Live at Red Rocks) - Paramore
I have received many whiplash injuries while listening to Paramore. The outro on this live version for this song is just so amazing.

'Coming Home' - Skulker
This is a nod to my time Australia, I went through a phase where I only listened to Australian bands and Skulker was like their version of The Donnas.

'Youth' - Daughter
Elena Tonra from Daughter is currently one of my favourite lyricists and you’ll hear why when you listen to this. They one of the few bands’ albums I can listen to without skipping a track.

'Take It Back' - Nylo
She was a support act on a Yuna tour and I fell in love with her music. She writes and produces her own stuff and her vocals on this track is so pretty!

'Begin Again' - Purity Ring
Another artist I can listen to without skipping. The first time I saw them play live I was mesmerized. It was just two of them on stage with this these LED lights strung up and programmed to each song. I felt like I was right there traversing the lights and it blew my mind.

'My Song 5' - Haim
Three sisters who write their own and play their own music, what’s not to love? The bass (synth, guitar, drum) on this track is just so in your face, I love it.

'Fool to Love' - Nao
The UK has such great talent coming out of there lately and I think Nao is one of their more underrated artists. Randomly saw her perform this song at a festival and immediately bought her album.

'Danger' - Erykah Badu
Ms Badu is easily one of my favourite artists of all time. Every time I see her perform this live, it gets me so hype!

'Dance or Die' - Janelle Monae
This song was released in 2010, flash forward to this year when she released ‘Dirty Computer’ - it literally took 8 years for people to finally get and appreciate her sound.

'The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)' - Missy Elliott
This song introduced me to Missy Elliott, a super producer and artist who still hasn’t gotten the cred she deserves. She broke the mould when she came onto the scene and influenced so many of the current artists right now.

'Dance With Somebody' - Whitney Houston
One of the best 80s jams and so timeless! Whitney Houston is someone I wish I got to see perform while she was in her prime. She’s probably my one of my top 10 favourite artists.
