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.
“Virgo: This week, old joys and old problems and old questions are going to return to you, they’re going to pop up like ghosts, like miracles, like colors and tastes you remember from your dreams. It’s weird and scary to relive past days, past selves, past sorrows, but if you’re ready, if you’re willing, this can be a week for changing your course, for diverting the flow of these old feelings, for redoing it all, for building sweet second chances for yourself. Read poems by Bernadette Mayer and don’t even worry, just do what you have to do to make your world right.” via yeahsara
I guess this is like the sickest Graff Video I have ever seen.
Some months ago I was asked to shoot a portrait of Julia a.k.a. Sneakerqueen for Baby-G. We wanted to show some snippets of Julias life as a collector and photographer in her hometown Berlin. Actually we wanted to hang outside and capture a more urban environment but somehow we catched the most shitty day of the whole summer and we had to reorganize. So we tried to use every single sunray to pop up the video out of the grey and rainy tristesse.
I’m kinda cheesy these days. Beautiful Remix of Junior Jack´s – “My Feeling”. You can hear more of Dubson over here!
Here are some upcoming DJAY-Gigs for your DANCE satisfaction this week.
First of all we bounce back to our Homebase LUZIA on Thursday where Nico, Sara and me will play some of our fav. tracks to family and friends… We start 9pm sharp cause I am OLD!
On Friday Night Sara and me gonna sell our souls to the Broiler Boom Guys and play together with Schwarz Don`t Crack and Filosofische Stilte on the SoulFutureBass Party at Tanzbar Miami.
Hope to see you there!
Last week I was playing at the UCON x 8BAR release of the “Federleicht” Bike Collabo. It´s a custom build and a collaboration between different Berlin artists, brands and manufacturers. I love the final version and for me it´s a nice example how the Berlin scene is working together to push things forward.
Thanks to Phillips and BOLD for my new Headphones anyway. Love em!
If you are in love with funky OldSchool Styles – Grubbymits seems to be your heaven. I used to digg Second Hand for years but I think I got a bit more decent when it comes to clothes these days. Even though I love the massive color bang in your face and everyone who is wearing a slick selection of vintage styles has my full attention and LOVE.
Thanks Matze for the Link!
It’s so good to see my friends working on their ideas and I’m proud about every one of them having success with the stuff they love. One of the next projects to keep an artsy eye on is DRAW A LINE, a new project that curates unique and limited art editions which you can buy soon on their new website.
Working together with a network of amazing urban and contemporary artists from around the globe the plattform will make their art available for everyone. I can´t wait for the launch and also picked my first piece already..
I wish you all the best and I´m sure everything will work out fine! If you want to know more about DRAW A LINE watch the trailer above and take a view on their blog over here!
I´m on Haw-Lin Motherfuckaaasz!
I can’t remember for how long I follow the Moodboard. It must been 4 years at least. It soon became a huge inspiration for all of us and you could say getting shown at Haw-Lin is a real honor. I really thought about to submit pictures to them but it always felt like cheating and so I kept calm and waited for them to choose. Now they chose a picture from my Analog Brasil series. It pictures my suitcase right before it gets boarded to bring us back to the mainland from Ilha Grande. I like the picture even though I much more want to know why they chose this one in particular. But whatever – they chose it and I´m happy ))
In this context I also watched the portrait Nico and me shot about Jakob and Nathan two years ago. I still like it. So thanks boys, and you gotta tell me the reason over the next beer. I pay! Cheers.
Yeah – I needed a TimeOut. No Phonerings, No Updates, nothing what you may miss somewhere in town. It wasn’t about exploring new places or getting new inspiration. I much more needed something like a Meditation. Some Place to hide, read and sleep. The only way I truly could experience this kind of time was to say Bye to everything electronic surrounding me and keep it analog for two weeks. I was excited how this experiment will affect me, if I miss something or if I get bored to death?! Nothing of this happend. It was the best thing I could have done and I promise as long as I travel for private reasons I keep my phone on flight mode.
I also left my DSLR at home so I could not have had the chance to get myself into the Frame-Mode and look for the best pictures to capture everywhere. So I just brought my analog Olympus with me and 3 films to snap some pics for the album.
I wanna thank my love Nadine for this amazing holiday and the good times we had! Never laughed that much in years! I miss you already and can’t wait to have you back in Europe some day! I also wanna thank Anton for letting us mess up his amazing apartment in Rio de Janeiro. Check out his amazing artworks over here! If you need some Tips & Tricks for Brasil and some nice spots – just let me know! One Love!
I still remember the days back in the early 2000s when I met Jochen Smuda in front of Muffathalle in Munich and he told me about his upcoming fashion project called UCON. More than 10 years later we both live and work in Berlin and the little baby he build up with his buddy Martin Fussenegger grew into a successful brand putting out fresh designs for the urban scene. So I am more than happy to get featured in their MIXCAST series with some of my most fav. songs right now. I hope you like the mix and I look forward to next 10 UCON years. Make sure to jump over to their new collection and support the family.
Comin up this Saturday for all the Bass Lovers in TOWN. We want to celebrate with you one year of full DANCEFLOORS, good music and a lot of fun. Love to see you on the floor! FB-Event
You’ve might recognized that I had a two weeks analog time out in Brasil. No Laptop, no phone – straight off. It was amazing and I can’t wait to share my analog pics and stories with you. So stay tuned for some upcoming new stuff like a Blog Relaunch, 1 year A’MILLION party, a new Mix etc etc. One Love!

Thanks ADIDAS and Florian for fitting me with these nice ZXZ ADV ´s for my upcoming trip to Brasil. I can´t promise that they stay as clean as they are right now while hiking through the rainforest and the coast of this amazing country … You can shop these kicks over at SUPPA.
