There it is again.. Friday! We keep making it 🙂
This time I have another soundcloud clip for you guys. This is a very special friend of mine from my old music days in the wild wild west. Eve Falcon, awesome DJ, hot as hell and wife of Jason Blum, one half of the live electronic act Deepsky from back in the day. So many memories and connections have been created in my life after meeting Jason and Scott from Deepsky. Eve is one of them. She has such a mature sound and scratches my progressive/deep house itch in just the right way.
How long have I waited for this specific Friday? About 2 to 3 weeks. Just finished the 14th annual Coachella Mixes with John Beaver (grab them here) and really got into the Coachella mood, which is going on this weekend. I thought about the many innovative acts I saw over the years and one guy keeps standing out. Mike Relm!
I like to think of myself as a really good mashup artist but Mike Relm takes the idea to another world. He mixes, scratches, mashes not only music but also videos. He scratches movies… let that marinate for a second if you haven’t seen him live before. It was one of the craziest shows I’ve seen. This video is a pretty good example of what it was like, even though he’s having technical issues… still amazing.
Watch this video as your weekend inspiration. Now you’re hella ready to party 🙂
Alright people, I am back from a long but not long enough trip from Berlin. It has been a crazy couple of last weeks and I’ve been looking for something different, a bit more chilled out. I stumbled over the Electro Swing Crew, hailing from Hamburg, Germany.
I’ve had the pleasure of being to a Parov Stelar live show once and it was totally awesome. Like listening to house music at a festival but everyone is swing dancing and dressed up. Super awesome! Anyways check out this live set and possibly allow a new genre into your repertoire if you aren’t aware of this, yet.
Curious to see what else they’ll release in the future.
Welcome to a very special Friday. I’m posting this from the road because I’m visiting my hometown Berlin and I’m celebrating this Friday with a set by Berlin local Boys Noize. I’m probably going to have to fix some of the formatting on this post. This is my first time posting something from mobile 😅😎
and since this week is my self-declared Drum and Bass week I’m going to drop this Netsky mix on us all. So much feelgood dopeness for one weekend. Where is it gonna take you?
Check out my post on the purely made up Drum and Bass Week here 😉
Cheers to the weekend!

I’m declaring this week my personal drum and bass week.
I realized that the more people I talk to about music on a regular basis, the more inspired I get. Everyone has tastes that they’ve become experts in over the years and I can only advise absorbing the experiences they share with you!
Last week “drum n bass” came up briefly during a conversation and it got me to dive back into the genre after a while of having been absent. Many people who may only know me for house music and its variations may not know that I actually used to produce a little drum and bass back in the day. Here is one of the two tracks that got released and are still available today 😉
Anyways, I started digging around a bit in the last couple of days and immediately found some new favorites. Favorites I wouldn’t have ever found if it wasn’t for that one conversation… let that marinate 🙂
Ok here they are:
Netsky – Pirate Bay – My loud music while driving on loop havin favorite.
Rudimental – Waiting All Night ft. Ella Eyre – The “How have I never heard of Rudimental before” Track surprise.
Netsky – High Alert – The dopest hook/chorus vocal edit of the month for me.
Keeno – Faithless – So sophisticated and adulting.
There were a bunch more, but I caught myself giving the tracks above the most rewinds.
And I just have to end this post with the most epic improvised, on the spot, top of the dome joke about drum and bass ever, thanks to Jimmy Carr. 😀
