New York Moments

24.April 2014


dt64com_NewYorkCity-35

In the last years New York City somehow got my most visited city outside of Berlin. I mean I have been there more often than in my hometown or any other city in Germany or Europe. I won’t call it my second home but whenever I arrive there I feel like being back to a place I know very well. I enjoy diving into this metropolis, visit my friends and the neighborhoods I love hanging out. I don’t have the tourist view anymore (just whenever I ride the J or N train over Manhattan or Williamsburg Bridge), I don’t need to go sightseeing and when I move through the city I feel very “New Yorkian” . So I also recognized that in terms of my photography I am not interested in picturing the obvious anymore. I am more likely searching for my personal New York moments, people I meet or that are catching my attention in the streets. I think breaking a city down it very much comes to those people living in this city and the small impessions you get on the corners of your neighborhood. I hope you like the pictures. Read more…

4 Days to Detroit

18.February 2014

4 Days to Detroit from ABOUTNOW on Vimeo.

As you might recognized Nico and me went on a roadtrip through the United States in January. The challenge was to drive about 1400 miles from Houston to Detroit in just 4 days. It was a lot of fun and there was nearly no minute we didn’t have a camera in our hands to capture the trip. Although it was quite rough to drive 8 hours a day we still got some nice footage. We really took every second to film and I’m really really looking forward to another opportunity where we have more time for such an amazing project. Anyway it was nice to see the film develop and we definitely went a next step with a professional Voice Over by the amazing Jeremiah Costello ! Thanks to the good guys over at Mercedes Benz for making this happen. We look forward to upcoming projects with you! Read more…

Up Up In The Sky

Even though planes got my second home in the last years I will never loose the fascination for the incredible view onto our beautiful earth. I just love the geometrical shapes, the graphical play, the light, the water, the ice, the clouds. I took these pictures on my last journey through the United States. I have even more videos of these views and I’ll maybe cut them together whenever I will have time someday.  Read more…

After 2 weeks on the road through the United States I spent my Saturday night with some nice Puerto Rican women in the Laundry on 5th Ave and Union St in Brooklyn.  Read more…

Brandy & Coke

19.January 2014

I still remember the first UK Garage mixtape I bought back in 2001 when I used to live in Munich at that time. The Rhythms blew me away and after I was a exhausted by the late 90s HipHop it was so fresh to hear these rolling sounds mixed up with RnB and House music. Sadly non of my friends got into it and I couldn’t find any Raves going on over in Germany. So after a while UK Garage and 2Step disappeared more and more and was replaced by it’s harder brother Drum’n'Bass which was more excepted because the cool kids didn’t like RnB vocals on any track! But for me growing up with vocal house I always had a secret passion for UKG and for me it still is the foundation for the music we play in our clubs today.

Detroit

I guess I have never seen a city like Detroit. Away from the Business we have been there for Nico and me where exploring the city and of course couldn’t withstand to go to some places where probably most people wouldn’t set foot in. It’s a city with a big history and a city that got hit like no other! It’s a place where a concept failed and millions of people lost the foundations of their life! At the same time it’s a place to dream of. A chance to grow again and make it better this time. We are curious about the way Detroit will go but we are definitely sure that this wasn’t our last visit!  Read more…

The Field

18.January 2014

We just came home shooting with our friends of Streetetiquette. While hanging in a black Barber Shop somewhere in Brooklyn we watched this amazing documentary about Chicago’s gangs and music scene. Everyone in the shop stopped working and there started an intense discussion about the black kids in the projects. I guess moments like these are the best things while traveling!

USA Tour 2014

5.January 2014

I am off to my USA production tour for the next 3 weeks. LasVegas, Houston, NewOrleans, Nashville, Detroit, Providence, NewYork just to name a few cities we visit. I’m quite excited cause it’s been a while since I traveled this long but I’m sure it will be an awesome experience. As always you can follow the trip on my Travel Tumblr! And mark the 24th of January for my Welcome Back A’MILLION party at LUZIA! Hope to see you all there again! One Love!

I love these moments when the night is nearly over, the party was celebrated and the atmosphere has a certain intensity like people don’t want the night to end or are afraid of the next day or something. You gather together philosophizing about the future while you recognize the first signs of the dawn outside. I guess it’ s time for the last song. Thanks YeahSara for your expertise, taste and nerdism in good music! Always Inspiring!  Read more…

Nabil for Rick Owens and ID

19.December 2013

“The perfect moment of the perfect night”

NABIL is one of my fav. directors and belongs to the elite of musicvideomakers. Working for James Blake, Kanye West, Frank Ocean and many more you always get surprised with his storytelling and visual. His films don’t just throw out nice pictures but more often disturb your learned aesthetics. And at least this is the border to see him as an artist inside the filmmaking buizz.

I like .legid. !

Being a DJ doesn´t mean just coming to the club having some drinks and play. It´s more like a full time job hunting for fresh new music that gets the crowd pumped and me excited (yeah I get bored quit easily music wise). So I daily scan the usual plattforms for new tracks and listen to exotic foreign radio shows to surprise you on the next gig. So here are 5 of my most inspiring DJ´s and Producers these days.

1. Sweatson Klank


SweatsonKlank-

Sweatson Klank aka Tink is an L.A. based producer and DJ kicking out not just fresh new souly tracks but also amazing mixes getting deep on 90s underground Rap or Disco Classix. Just love him for it´s taste and his mixes are All-Times in my Playlists. He´s also part of Project Mooncircle. Nuff said I think!  Read more…

READ Books!

25.November 2013


Before I went to Brasil for my analog vacation I asked my friends at Facebook if they have any book suggestions for me. I didn´d expect that everyone was so into reading but somehow the status collected 47 comments with your fav. books right now. Thanks for that and I´m happy to share the whole list here with you!

By the way, right now I´m reading “Die Schlafwandler” by Christopher Clark, an amazing interesting book about the backgrounds of how Europe went into the first worldwar.  Read more…
