Austria mark 3

We first hit up Vienna with DJ C to play to the Flex Club, then Kid K and I returned last weekend to play on Friday to WUK with our peeps the Transdub Massive.. Hot as hell in there, as well as outside-- It was a gigantic space, pretty cavernous and echoey with not many bodies to soak up the sound. Transdub filled it with bass and their guest lyricist laid down some sweet lines initially, before kinda slipping off the mark to try and hype up the little crowd by encouraging ladies to come up and grind with him... It was generally positive I guess, but not normally how I like it to swing. meh, I guess is my main point on that one. But, however, the music still swelled and shivered nicely, digging floyd's melodica especially. All shoudl check out their new album, available in stores now. And book them all over the world!

Along with various friends who did show up, we had some interesting special guests on the dancefloor. One of the Transdubbers is linked somehow with the man like the Sean Paul, and it was rumored he might show. In the middle of my set I did notice the dancefloor liven up, and also seem noticably blacker than Vienna had hitherto revealed itself to be. I didn't put 2 and 2 together, though, and instead our lovely host Christian of Al Haca Sound System let me know later that Sean Paul and his peeps had been cuttin' it up on the dancefloor. This means he was dancing to Jah Coozi/Modeselektor, Cardopusher, Tittsworth, Tamil pop, Moabit remixing of Sean Paul (apropos, that one), DJ C and other extremely weird stuff. Nice one!

I'm available to open for you, Mr. Paul, at the stadium of your choice.. or for private parties.. so long as I can play what I like.

And as exciting, basically, although a bit more close to home, the master thereminist Pamelia Kurstin also showed up and we had a lovely time. She pointed out that she can play the classic dubstep wobble sounds on a theremin, so now I put it to you, dubstep massive - who's got it together enough to set up a live show with someone on the deep beats and Ms. Kurstin on theremin, and of course Warrior Queen on vocals? Who's gonna step up? Kode9? Blackdown? Digital Mystikz? I leave it to y'all..
