gig: bachblyten-festival 2014

finally, after months, i’ve got the next gig announcement coming up, and this one is gonna be very exciting for me!
i was invited to play at the bachblyten festival this summer and i’m really looking forward to it… the best part is that my beloved glücks family have their own floor there, so it’s guaranteed that there’s gonna be a huge bunch of the loveliest people i know!

so if you’re looking for a nice summer weekend with great party on four floors amidst the best weirdos you can find, follow me there!
i also promise that as soon as i know my exact playtime, i’ll let you know!
and to shorten the few days left until the party kicks off, the bachblyten crew was so nice as to put one of my sets on their soundcloud channel, which i’d love to share with you:

personal note in case anyone wants to come with me from munich to the bachblyten festival, just drop me a line on facebook or via email. i’d be happy to take you with me ;-)

back on stage – with a big “thank you”

sometimes certain events occur that keep you from doing what you love and you don’t even notice how long you’ve been “gone” once you return…
those who know me will know what i’m talking about.
the main point here is something different nonetheless: i’m back! after several months with very few gigs and appearances it’s time to move forward again.

and to underline the fact of ongoing change i’ll give you a set that marks yet another turning point on my path to my musical self.
it’s another facet that revealed itself to me during the last few weeks while i spent a lot of time listening to a lot of weirder, more fluent and less strictly shaped music.
its starting vector was bonobo, who’ll be on the munich tollwood tonight. based on his great tune “kota” i put some of my favourite artists in there: four tet, baths, sigur ros, massive attack, to name a few.
i guess to get most out of the set, you grab some of your best friends and find a spot high up on the roof, relax and wait for the sunset…

personal note
although this is by far not the easiest time of my life, i’m confident and also a little proud that i got that far without going nuts… thanks to all the friends who supported me and to everyone who gave me respect, trust and love!

so join me this saturday (08.03.2014), starting at 21:00 for some good ol’ drinks and good ol’ (well and new, i guess) tunes!

personal note
i finally got my new setup ready: a travel-friendly setup consisting of my macbook and two allen&heath xone:k2 with a very nice mapping i’m about to finish. expect more details on this to come soon…

merry christmas to everyone!

for this year’s quiet time i’ve got a nice little special coming up tonight: me and my friend felix ferior will be having our own little christmas gig / party at the cocktailhouse.

so join us for a nice jesus’ birthday event tonight (25.12.2013) starting at 21:00!

personal note
i’m really looking forward to celebrating christmas with my friends at the cocktailhouse and i’d much appreciate it to see some of you over there for a few good holiday drinks!

what a GLÜCK!

we made it! we finally got another GLÜCK-show on the road, and after some struggle in the beginning (what with the date and all) it looks like everything’s in place now for a great party on last saturday in november!

we’ll start at 22:00 on the 30th of november in the former feinkost electronica (for those who know…) and keep it going until they’re all gone!
we’re very happy to go back to the feinkost / aka lebenslust, i’m sure those of you who attended our party there in may will know why!

and as the whole GLÜCKs-story started in hamburg i think it’s about time to express my gratefulness by a really well-suited teaser:

personal note
if you want to contribute to this party and help make it a big success, just spread the word and invite some friends

any other help is also greatly appreciated, just get in touch with us via facebook or mail.

what a GLÜCK that is!

what a GLÜCK that is!

...and pretty from behind, too.

dj set: cocktailhouse 11/2013

and here it is: the november edition of my (almost, well…) monthly recordings from the cocktailhouse in munich!
i used vinyl along with an (unfortunately very reduced) digital setup to play this one.

feel free to drop me some comments, in case you want the set for download, just drop me a line on facebook!

personal note
hang in there for a great announcement, as i know there’s another great gig coming up this november! stay tuned!

gig: julius blank @ cocktailhouse 11/2013

although i might not be known as a traditionalist (whatever this is these days) i’ve got a hang for repetitive things. the closest proof would be the sound i play, another one is coming up this saturday: i’ll play at the beloved cocktailhouse once more.

so join me in my struggle against monotonous, non-repetitive spare time this saturday (02.11.2013) starting at 21:00!

as a little teaser here’s my latest recording from the cocktailhouse:

personal note
believe it or not, again i’m hoping for phil to grant me my wish of playing together with julius zimmer. if it works: be prepared :-)

i’m still hoping to do a 100bpm set with julius zimmer tonigth, so let’s hope he’ll get the opportunity to replace his shaker with his controller ;-)

gig: julius blank @ cocktailhouse with special guest matthias kick

months have passed since i last came to see matthias, not to mention play a gig with him!
our first gig was back in the days at the beloved kreuz16 (r.i.p.).

but an old flame never dies, so the best thing we could think of for finally meeting each other again was – of course: play a gig! and as it was matthias’ birthday three days ago, we got one more great thing to celebrate! in other words: don’t miss this one!

join us at the cocktailhouse on the 30.08.2013 starting at 21:00 for good vibes, tasty drinks and – of course – all the four-to-the-floor you like!

personal note
check out matthias’ stuff on soundcloud, this guy’s got some prime stuff in there!
