It’ s propably no secret that Joy O is one of my most favorite producers ever. So many times it happened that I stood in the middle of the dancefloor and got catched by a smooth but constantly rolling Bassline and I asked myself – who the fuck is this?! It’ s Joy O. Again. And. Again. Even though I don’ t like his new stuff that much anymore he still drops some fresh tracks that catch my attention right away. He’ s just incredible talented and I’m looking forward to his future productions and projects. These are my 5 most favorite Joy O tracks – Don’t forget to turn up the bass!

1. Hyph Mongo

It’s the first track I heard of Joy O and it’s still an All-Timer!

2. Sicko Cell

I think this track was first dropped in a Boiler Room Mix (was it Jamie XX’s ??). Tristan introduced it with: “It’s from an unknown producer from East London”. The hype started. Right after the drop in live session – the kids started discussing who was responsible for this awesome tune. Right away I was sure that this was Joy O’ s signature and after it got official that the song is called Sicko Cell, I liked him even more.

3. Ladywell

It’s the perfect Joy O track. Rolling Sound but with a smooth coolness for the early morning hours in your fav. club.

4. Big Room Tech House DJ Tool Tip

I first heard this tune in George Fitzgeralds set in Horst Kreuzberg before a couple of months. I hate Joy O for not releasing it via one of the major plattforms, so you only get rips to hear! I wanna play this tune!!!!

5. J.Doe

A smoothie that perfectly fits into the post dubstep world. You can hear it as a standalone or drop it as a smoother in between a Bass set.

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…

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…

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.

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!
