In the mix for ENTELU

Here’s an exclusive mix I composed for Miami-based ENTELU. ENTELU is a multifaceted music production and event agency that represents fair artist treatment as well as a very forward-thinking way of creating music.

Focus

I love experimenting with new sounds and genres, without any expectations bothering me. That freedom is what I had to learn to appreciate.

Studio Kreuzberg turns 5!

Studio Kreuzberg, there are endless memories connected to you… now you turn 5 and we’ll celebrate your birthday together… appropriately! Extremely meaningful and emotional gig for me, see you in Berlin on January 19th!

Banksy in Bethlehem…

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.

Record shopping Canadian-style

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…

KNEE DEEP

Trip-Hop? Downtempo? You decide what genre it is. ‘Knee Deep’ is the result of pure improvisation and inspires me to go further into this direction. I’ve been excited to share it with you after holding it back for quite a while and now it’s available via my Bandcamp page.
Thank you for listening, thank you for your support […]

‘Knee Deep’ is now available via my Bandcamp page: Just click here.

VISIT ME ON BANDCAMP

Are you familiar with Bandcamp? It’s a website where musicians can release and distribute their music independently. I’ve been on Bandcamp for a while and recently decided to focus even more on it since it perfectly reflects my attitude towards a certain degree of autarchy within the music business.
So from now on you can find all my releases there. Most of them are purchasable through Bandcamp directly, some of them via other sale platforms and a couple of them are even free. Hope to see you there….
