The freedom of a producer is that there are no restrictions or standards of any kind. I’m trying to make use of this freedom whenever I’m in the studio. Staying open to whatever result there will be in the end can be quite a challenge, however concerning authenticity it couldn’t be more rewarding.
Here’s my latest tune ‘Bawu’, out and available on Bandcamp exlclusively: buy here.
My new mix ‘ALONGSIDE 3’ is available on my Soundcloud page. I’m very happy with the selection as well as compiling the overall mix. Sharing great music is still so much fun. Hope you share my enthusiasm 🙂
I’ve been a huge fan of the anonymous hero of street art ‘Banksy’ since watching the movie/documentary “Exit Through The Giftshop” and thus learning about his stencil paintings on the separation wall Israel built around the West Bank.
A few days ago, visiting Bethlehem for the second time already I finally found this legendary wall painting of him. However it would not have been possible without the help of Nadera, a Palestinian who saw my fiancee and me searching for the painting unsuccessfully. After asking and driving around in the middle of nowhere the three of us arrived in front of an autoshop where the picture below was taken. We can’t thank her enough for being so helpful and open-minded. She even took us to The Walled Off Hotel which is designed entirely by Banksy and will blow your mind!
It was an unforgettable day in a city which lets you feel and comprehend the ongoing conflict in the Middle East a little better.
Let me please encourage you to visit Bethlehem yourselves and become witnesses of the appalling injustice that takes place in the Palestinian territories everyday, perpetrated by some very powerful and ignorant people.
The world has influenced me ever since I started to travel. At the same time I’ve been lucky to play in many different clubs in front of open-minded people who enjoyed the intensity of the moment just as much as I did. Consequently “Suq” and “Dana” are a product of those very personal experiences and associations yet again.
The full EP called “Suq” is available via my Bandcamp page: Suq EP
Been into this guy’s music from the beginning and when I recently browsed through some old music CDs of mine and came across Nas’ tune “Life’s A Bitch” I decided to make a kind of bootleg without further ado.
Spent two wonderful weeks in awesome Canada. Incredible people, incredible nature and for sure a place that deserves to be explored even more in the future. In other news: Been working on lots of music lately which will be finished and released step by step but as usual haste makes waste…
112 bpm has become my favorite tempo as it seems. Such rather slow tracks are more difficult to integrate in a mix, however I prefer my tracks to be listened to separately anyways. “Scar” is a homage to emotionality and doesn’t seek to be like other tracks but a statement on its own.
I found this tune on my hardrive where it’d been stored for over six years! So despite not being up to date I still wanted to share it with you. I personally consider the track a totally emotional rollercoaster and the perfect reflection of the person I used to be in my early Berlin days.
You can download the tune via Bandcamp for free here !
