I’m a little bit late posting this today, but it’s still Friday in at least Hawaii, right? 😀
Also I’ve been jamming to this mix by Dariio, one of my old school friends and musical partners. It’s his live recording of the Pancakes and Booze Art Show in.. I assume Washington State. Either way it sounds like a finger licking good time. This mix is dope to chill to or to dance to or even to rage to, which makes it perfect for so many situations, for example, doing my weekly cruise home from work on Friday’s through that Bavarian town on the way home, blasting house music for all my geezer, lederhosen-wearing, buddies… Sorry for the disturbance every Friday around 2pm ya’ll 😀
Now go ahead and chill, dance or rage to this:
There are a bunch of people that I really miss since my exile 6 years ago. This dude is definitely one of them. I’m glad we were able to mix it up, produce it up and party it up back in the day and I know we’ll be chillin here in Germany at some point! But this is also another reason why I like to cover “locals” and friends of the scene instead of just some big name boiler room mixes, as cool as they may be… the personal touch is just a bit cooler to me.
Here is a brief clip of us playing at Pinky’s which since has burnt down. Miss those times, buddy… 🙂
This Friday, I don’t really feel like a bouncy party or that eye-twitching glitch. I need to meditate ya’ll. I need to reset myself and put this week behind me. David August to the rescue! A smooth deep house mix with surprising twists and turns, even an “I know that sound” moment.
You’ll have to let the harmonies of the first 5 minutes take you into the right state of mind. And don’t worry, the beat comes in right about that time too and it’s smooth sailing from there.
I’m gonna take a dive into this mix now… I suggest you follow.

It’s finally Friday, people and I’m glad to be back. I’ve had a series of mini vacations around Europe with London, Amsterdam and LOTS of Berlin. I want to celebrate having a Friday to myself again after weeks of being about and we’re celebrating it with one of my favorites: Stephan Bodzin.

It’s finally finally finally Friday! This Friday marked my last day at work before my two week vacation. I’m headed to London, Amsterdam and then to my hometown Berlin. And again it’s Berlin that inspired this weeks post. A good digital friend of mine and Berlin native, David Schirmeister, just rocked the Zurück Zu Den Wurzeln Festival and has a live recording of his set! So I’m most definitely going to play it here this week.
David and I ran into each other when he submitted a couple of demos to my label. I was able to see him grow over the last few years and his production skills shot through the roof. He’s now beyond capable keeping up with the big guns in the scene. Keep on rockin it, dude!
Why is Friday the best day of the week? Picture this: Being a free person and living your life is awesome, but it doesn’t compare to the first day of freedom after being locked up over the weekend for doing some dumb shit… That’s why Friday is the best: Freedom for a few days and time to let go of the past week… and if you can’t follow me, maybe you need to go do some dumb shit 🙂
And no one can get your weekend groove started like the legend himself, Carl Cox. I have to admit, being so fond of Daft Punk, he had me at that first track. It really didn’t matter at that point what the rest of the mix was about, I decided right there and then that I’m gonna post it.. I put my faith into the Cox 😉 as should you.

What? There is a lady mixing you say? I just came for the art exhibition… but I guess since we’re already here let’s talk about Pretty Pink, the groove happy chick dancing her ass off in this video. I like finding out about new people, characters and artists. She certainly isn’t unknown, but she’s new to me and besides music she seems to have an impeccable taste in ancient art. Not only is her track selection good but her production is pretty top notch as well!
Check her out for yourself and of course as always let me know if you can recommend any mixes for the next Finally Friday!

If you haven’t heard of Roger Sanchez yet, it’s certainly something to check out. He rocks 2 to 4 decks seamlessly and his house music track selection is nostalgic but fresh. He creates his own effects and cuts using only CDJs.
If this doesn’t want to make you move, I can’t help you 🙂
