dj-set : with tobi at the cocktailhouse

after a long break there’s a little highlight now for you: the youngest recording is online! this time it’s a pure vinyl set i played last saturday with my buddy tobi at the cocktailhouse. i can only say: thank you, tobi!

so without further ado here’s the link to the set:

personal note/em> if only it could go this well everytime!

gig: 31.10. @ old feinkost electronica

wikipedia knows:

Dancing ban
[…] The German and Swiss dancing bans prohibit public parties, but not dancing in one’s private residence.

and that’s exactly why we stay entre nous at all saint’s day and dance in private – under the rare blessing of the authorities – until our legs get wobbly.

but there’s more:

All Saints’ Day
[…] In the Catholic Church and many Anglican churches, the next day specifically commemorates the departed faithful who have not yet been purified and reached heaven.

so per pefinitionen that includes our own “faithful of the dance”, so i’d say we have to contribute our share to bavarian culture and swing our hips in a decent manner to bless our holy ones!

so for this holy cause we meet on the 31st of october in the former Feinkost electronica – now Lebenslust – in order to commemorate our dancing saints amidst the rumbling of the timpani of thunder and the melodies of the gorgeous chimes of heaven… or so.

as a little teaser – so to say as your rosary until the friday in question – you’ll sit and nicely listen to a set each day, so you won’t unlearn dancing:

personal note: after the last afterhour i can’t wait to re-enter the holy sites! and a big thank you! goes out to our ward gusto the great!

gig: 25.10. @ cocktailhouse

tadaaaa: the october edition of my beloved sessions at the cocktailhouse is here! it’s going to happen at the 25. of october starting at 2100, as usual.

this time a very special guest will be with me: my dear friend fabi aka versteuermann!

and to get you in the mood, here’s one of my favourite recordings from the cocktailhouse:

personal note probably it’ll be one of those nice little freak-out evenings if you consider the lineup, so bring an extra pair of pants.

gig: 30.08. @ tante erna

since this august is apparently the month of the winter jacket, we can just as well start going inside for partying until the openair season starts over in december, like last year…

so let’s dance inside at the tante erna, where my friends from cinta magnética will get it on this saturday (30.08.2014)!

as a little teaser here’s my latest recording from the bachblyten-festival:

dj set: bachblyten 2014

it was almost like i was dreaming… in the middle of nowhere i met a bunch of my dearest friends on a field next to a tiny airport, planes were taking off while everyone was building tents, bars, soundsystems and brilliant lightshows to setup the best floor there is.
and the result was tremendous!

this is why GLÜCK is not only an expression for a feeling, but an entire spirit and an attitude to life for me!
i admit it was tough to play a set on sunday morning – especially together with my “no, i don’t wanna sleep before, it’s a waste of time” attitude – but every second of it felt like i was where i belonged. thank you spocht for the great back 2 back sesstion, let’s do that again…

and to give something back and also for those who couldn’t attend, here’s the first two hours of the set i played on sunday from 6 am to 8 am. enjoy.

personal note there’s so many people to thank in person, but i won’t list them here. i simply trust we’ll meet again soon. big love to you all!

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!

gig : julius blank @ cocktailhouse 03/2014
