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.

::: Suq EP :::

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

Thanks for listening […]

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…

Y’all Better Be Good

This is out now on Bandcamp. Grab it here.

SCAR

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.

‘Scar’ is out now on Bandcamp.

Free Download

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 !

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. So is the B-side ‘Palestine’ which represents a more forward, “breakish” sound which is near and dear to me just as much.
Thank you for listening, thank you for your support […]
