Gig in LA

Working the dubstep side of things, I will be playing in Los Angeles in a couple weeks with Kid Kameleon, Joe Nice and the Brothers Boyd.

Despite the fact that Bay Area types seem required to diss Los Angeles, I always have a good time there. How can it be all bad, with the likes of Darkmatter, Baseck, and the mighty Sonic Death Rabbit?

anyway. here's the flyer, Los Angeles peeps represent!

Just a quick note

Back in the US

Caught up in administrative nightmares on campus.. will I be teaching? researching? researching AND teaching? Will I have 17 credits? 14 credits? who can tell?

not very music related. More on that soon.

Lastly, it's possible that this Saturday night Kid K and I will be djing at a party called HYPHYCORE, in SF somewhere. you heard it here first. We actually started working on a hyphycore mix in May, right before we left. yes, breakcore and bay area. Nice to see others on the same tip. I want it to be a series, actually. We'll see how it goes. Check back for more news - it's an outlaw so you may have to actually get in touch with me about it. But it will also be my 33rd birthday, so you should come wish me well (after midnight)

And because I can't sit still, I will be in NYC Sept 1. No gigs planned, although I'd happily take one. (hint..) then back here for 2 weeks, then to LA for another gig. I'll be updating the mysp*ce calendar shortly.

Back in Berlin

back and nearly recovered from the last tour. Sunburning on the rocks outside dubrovnik, new sandals tearing a hole in my foot (thanks, Kickers, for carving your brandname into the inside of the wooden sole with nice sharp corners), lack of sleep and a plethora of culture clash..

It was all fun but it's nice to back in Berlin where i know how to pass the time cheaply, have privacy and call up friends when I like.

Tonight I am actually going to see some minimal techno, for the first time in years. That's what this city is usually known for, and whoever it is that is playing (who I never heard of) is apparently someone big in the scene. So yay. I just have to stay up till 5 or 6 to properly enjoy it. Disco-nap time!

I have amassed several recordings of live sets from various gigs this tour, but it's taking a while to get them publicly posted. So far the best one for listening is the London gig put on by ResonanceFM, Adverse Camber, Torment and probably lots more peeps.

Here is a link to my set at Kick up the Riddim, you can go here to this thread where the mighty El Kano has posted a few of the other sets from that truly entertaining night. Not all yet (not Kid Kameleon's for example), but it'll come!

I just got wind of our gig at Hamburg's Rote Flora, our first gig of the tour, being recorded and posted. I remember the party, but not what I played, really, so we'll see about that one.. no link yet.

Looking back, especially at the awesome party in Budapest that ended our tour (thanks Breakshit peeps!), where I played my hardest set yet, it's been a great tour. Many thanks to the many people who made it possible, especially Kid K and DJ C, and all the awesome people we met all over europe and beyond!

More updates and recaps will follow here and at Riddim Method, and I will have a little down time in the Boston Area before going back to Cali, so I will likely fill in a bit more here as well.
