Last week i was in London and I got loads of hot new tunes there. If you wanna get a bit of the feeling of what has been played by Major Lazer (Diplos and Switch's dancehall project) at the Nottinghill Carnival, you should check out my 30minute London-special I made for Radio Fritz. Including "The Message is Love" from "Silverlink" which was performed by Jammer&Badness together with Diplo and Switch at the Carnival.
Besides the Carnival (which is only once a year) I suggest you to check out Trailer Trash on Friday - if you are in London. Its probably still the best night in town. Had a very good time there. Went to some afterhour at "Wet Yourself" which was ok ("Deadset" played) but nothing outstanding. More funny was an illegal spot (an old sex club) near Bethnal Green where the party didnt want to stop. And now grab the file. Including new tunes from Tigerstyle, Silverlink, Actionman ect.
Ahh....and dont worry.....there is no sound in the first 20 seconds.....so you have to skip 20 seconds in the beginning until you hear something...
ISBN 978 0556105 30 - Cassetteboy
London Calling - The Clash
The Message is Love - Silverlink feat. Badness & Jammer
Balle! Shava! (Sinden Rmx) - Tigerstyle feat. Vybz Kartel, Mangi Mahal and Nikitta
Alarm Bell - Action Man
Under your skin - Action Man
Summertime (David E Sugar Rmx) - Wiley
The Terminator - Caspa

Shir Khan Megamix Part 2/XLR8R-Podcast
DJ Valis send me this video yesterday. It's the sad story of the end of Paul Mawhinney's world of records.
Over the years he has amassed what has become the world's largest record collection. Due to health issues and a struggling record industry Paul is being forced to sell his collection.
This is the story of a man and his records. I hope you enjoy it.
PNAU from Australia are one of these bands, that go from shadow to sun in their music. Some is commercial bore, some fresh, hot dancemusic. What i didn't know is that one of them, a guy called Nick Littlemore has got a brand new side project called: Empire of the Sun.
It's sort of Disco-meets-psychedelic-Flaming Lips. "walking on a dream" seems to be their first and only release so far and it's a really poppy emotional disco-electro diamond, which builds up more and more every time you listen to it.
>>>EMPIRE OF THE SUN - Walking on a dream.mp3
well, just found out there is yet another project he is involved in, called TEENAGER (yesyes, lovely hipsters, it is not THE TEENAGERS...)
Melt Festival 08: Berlin Battery final show of the festival from Stylewalker on Vimeo.
we all can not forget this amazing über-mad "RAVE" night at the Melt Festival this year. There are these few nights every year, where we together with everybody else can feel the MAGIC. Sounds like Hippieshit? Of course it is!...
well, this is what happened, when we finally finished... enjoy!
Simply love these guys. This is perfect POP!!!, top quality, and catchy as...well..., The Beatles maybe?! This would make you smile the whole day, if this would be on radio in the morning while waking up (again, in a better world...).
It's is the second single from their new, third album which is produced by none other than the brothers Dewaele (also known as Soulwax, 2 Many DJs). Makes sense as they are next door neighbours in the small city of Genth in Belgium.
Wanna hear my Genth (in German: Gent) story? No? Well, here it is (there is no stoppin...sorry):
In the early eighties I saw an advertisement for one of the rare continental european concerts of Paul Weller & The Jam in the NME. It said "Genk" (Belgium) as the city, but me and my friends thought that the royal british islanders mixed it up with the bigger city Gent, because we never ever heard of Genk. Arriving in Gent that evening dying with pride to finally see a concert of The Jam, we found out that there was no show of the Jam in Gent. It was...well...what can i say... in a city called Genk in Belgium, which was around 150 kilometers away from Gent (and actually really close to my hometown Düsseldorf). So we jumped in the car, broke all traffic rules just to arrive in time to see a lot of happy people leaving the show. Really sad, that day for me and my friends...
You should really try to catch DAS POP in concert, because they are such a good Liveband, too. I remember seeing them at the Melt festvial 2 or 3 years ago and although being only three people on stage, they blew me away with their power and fun on stage. Singer Bent made singing and playing drums at the same time look like a children's game. (but go to the right city...)
Here is a really nice pumping electro-disco remix of Australia's VAN SHE. Great to play out:
>>>DAS POP - Underground (Van She Club Mix).mp3
hello opossums. i'm back from my trip to the french desert. I have a lot of stuff for you, so here we go for today...
First single from upcoming debut album by one of my favorite new british bands: The Friendly Fires. I missed them on the MELT festival, which is really sad. Think of The Klaxons vs. ESG mixed with everything that was (and is) good in british music. Very catchy indeed. Can't wait to hear the album, which will be out on XL records very soon. Until then, enjoy the video. And in case you don't have their two essential 10 inches, get of your sofa, and get them, while you can.
1988 John Carpenter made his only kids movie, They Live. "Nada, an unemployed construction worker/wrestler comes into town looking for a job and the American dream, resplendent in his every-man mullet and check shirt combo. Following some curious police brutality, Nada stumbled upon what looks at first sight like a pair of low prop budget plastic sunglasses. They look pretty slick to him. After putting them on though, the world becomes a very different place - the innocent Nada finds himself living in a heterosexist, capitalist psychogeographical nightmare of Kruger-like proportions. Billboards urge him to get married, go to church and obey. Money turns into blank pieces of paper bearing the legend THIS IS YOUR GOD. Certain individuals turn out not to be nation loving Americans but parasitical aliens. Before long, he is all out of patience and bubblegum."
In August 2008 Evil Nine release their Single "They Live". This comes with an outstanding Trevor Loveys Remix. Buy, Consume, Obey. Did you know Trevor Loveys releases music under that name since 1996? Show some respect!
At the moment I'm sitting in an appartement right at Bondi Beach, Sydney yearning to get out and grab a coffe at "Trio". I feel glad that I optimized Trevor's great work already three weeks ago. May my post be with you... Hey, don't forget to check John Carpenter's other flicks and, far more important, the awesome soundtracks he himself composed for his movies.
Evil Nine - They Live (Trevor Loveys RMX / MALENTE RE-EDIT)
78 Tracks in 120 minutes. The full SHIR KHAN dose.
From Zulu-House to Strictly Rhythm to Disco to Dubstep to African Bongogrooves, to Acid, to Soul, Frontroom Deepness, Basement, Crunk and Techno.
There is so much more in there to discover. Genreblending as always.

Shir Khan Megamix Part 1/XLR8R-Podcast
I cant think of one party where I havent dropped at least one tune from Man Recordings.
Man Recordings is having such an enourmous output that its hard to deny it.
I can already highly suggest the upcoming "Funk Mundial" with Oliver$ and Jesse Rose.
Daniel Haaksman - who runs the label in Berlin - is probably still the only Gringo (alongside Diplo) in Baile Funk town (Favelas of Rio) who really made something happen. He was and still is responsible for bringing that Baile Funk sound outside of Rio and to combine it with some European top notch production (well at least for the "Funk Mundial" series). Of course there is also the Original Rio-Stuff on Man Recordings such as Sandrinho, Dj Edgar or Deize Tigrona.
So it was right about time to drop some solo stuff. Therefore, this time its Daniel Haaksman himself.
Hi Debut-EP is called: "Who´s Afraid Of Rio?". Here is an edit of this track. Grab it!
Daniel Haaksman - Who's afraid of Rio?
Knixx is starting to become the best kept secret in Berlin. I was happy enough to hear some of his demos first hand and its really fresh. And to top all of that freshness - he just got a Video from our favourite VJ-Jockey: Ultramoodem. Check it out.
He was Pizzaman, Mighty Dub Katz, Fat Boy Slim and part of Freak Power, The Housemartins and Beats International. But now Norman Cooks focus on his new project "THE BPA". He's working on a album with 18 tracks feat. David Byrne and Iggy Pop. I'm really curious about it.
More about The BPA here: myspace.com/thebpa
And all the (bedroom)DJs have to check out this remix:
THE BPA feat. David Byrne & Dizzee Rascal - Toe Jam (Database Remix)
Here is my remix for The Young Punx which has been already released in Japan.
The release in England is around end of September. Comes out on Vinyl (MofoHifi) and will be available as mp3@Beatport including a bonus instrumental version.
So far thats my best clubmix I would say. I have been asked to share this with you, so I am not gonna hide it.
Oh my gosh....its music for the clubs:)
The Young Punx - Mashitup (Shir Khan Rmx)
Uups, a new Grace Jones album! After nearly 20 years the diva, icon and hardbody released a new record, produced by Sly & Robbie. And she tried to sound a bit like the recordings at the jamaican Compass Point Studio in 1980. If you don't know how it sounded back in the days, check out Grace Jones "Private Live. The Compass Point Sessions" or the highly recommended compilation "Funky Nassau. The Compass Point Story".
Here is "My Jamaican Guy" for you, the 12" version, recorded at Compass Point:
GRACE JONES - My Jamaican Guy (12" Version).mp3
I found this video today on youtube, titled "Cutting the new Morgan Geist 12"".
I'm not sure if the track on the video is really taken from the new Morgan Geist album "Double Night Time" (i hope so!), but anyway: it's always nice to see how a record is cut. His new second longplayer has an old school house/italo-disco vibe and features some old tracks like "24K" (the flipside of his über-hit "Super") or this one feat. Jeremy Greenspan of the Junior Boys:
MORGAN GEIST - Most Of All (feat. Jeremy Greenspan).mp3
guys - what can i say.
.... it´s been crazy 3 weeks so far.
time flies and so do i.
8 times party Brazilian style a lot of Churrasco, Caipirinha, 10 flights and 25680 km later i made it safely to chilly Santiago de Chile. so i thought this is the right moment to post some impressions i took on the way so far.
This weekend we will celebrate the next Berlin Battery Party at Picknick Club Berlin. And we are proud to present the legendary Larry Tee from N.Y.C among Munk DJ and the Berlin Battery DJs Shir Khan and Jack Tennis.

Here are the facts:

MC Mic Jagger
and the amazing Love Song Floor!
LARRY TEE - I Love U (Bart B More Secured Dub).mp3
Last week I ended my post with: "I'm curious about what happens when I meet Drop The Lime this weekend at Shambhala Festival in Canada." So this week I'll let you know.
Shambs, as they call it, has been mindblowing. Awesome crowd. Great music. I enjoyed every single second when I played the Fractal Forest stage and managed to witness countless great DJ-sets. I hung with Skream, Ursula 1000, Smalltown DJs, Computer Club, The Rub, Flosstradamus, Fort Knox Five, Robb G, The Phat Conductor, Skratch Bastid, DJ Huggs, Bassnectar, Feature Cast, Wax Romeo and... yes: Drop the Lime (Luca) is a good guy. But I can tell you: Not only Luca is... They all are.
It's been my birthday yesterday and to be honest, there could have been no better present for me than to meet, speak to and exchange ideas with all these inspiring musicians. Hey, don't get me wrong. I'm not kissing ass here. I just appreciate good music and good company. It's a common misconception that whenever DJs or musicians meet, they talk about music. In reality it's not very often you get asked "wich synth/sample did you use on this/that track". Might happen once in a while, but in general it's more stories, personal experiences, politics and bullshit. It's just fun to communicate with people that have a similar job or passion or just similar problems. Thanks to all you guys for being there and making my birthday a happy one.
Now I'm sitting in a hotel in Calgary, cause tonight 'll play the afterparty in HiFi Club with A. Skillz. After three days of loud music Adam and me will turn the music up one more time... till firday that is. Check all my spaces of the nice guys and buy the math head 12" because there's four more great tracks/remixes on it, it's on Palms Out Sounds and I love vinyl.
Math Head - Turn The Music Up (MALENTE Re-Edit)
Dont forget to join us this Saturday in Berlin. Me and Jack Tennis will be hosting the upstairs floor (yes the small one) at Picknick. Larry Tee and Monsieur Modica from Munk will be joining us. Its Tanjas B-Day-Party, so show up.
We gonna post an exclusive Larry Tee track later. The last time he played at Rio Club was already 2 years ago.....so its gonna be quite funny when we squeeze him into a room where only 50 people can fit in:)
Probably not so many people are aware of my radioshow though Radio Fritz has about 240 000 listeners daily.
But there is a lack between people using blogs and people hearing radio. I dont know if listening to the radio is old-fashioned, but since I have my radioshow I found myself listening to more radio again. When I was a teenager I remember that a few radioshows really influenced me in my dj-style. However, today people keep listening to podcasts and webradio. Therefore, I thought it would be a good idea to upload one of my weekly radioshows. Every week I am hosting nice people from all over the globe. Just whoever cool is in town gets invited. This show here is with Dj Gorky from Bonde do Role. Well - before you listen - dont forget - the show is mainly in german...and sorry...but my translation in the Dj Gorky-Interview kind of sucks....i Know....
The Picture of me and Gorky is also not the best. It was taken when we both Djed back to back before Simian Mobile Disco last year.
Ps: The show is about 2 hours long. To listen to the whole show you have to download this Zip-file here.

For their upcoming release "HYPERACTIVE" with remixes from Bobmo, Bird Peterson and Riva Starr they get lots of love from Erol Alkan, Surkin, Tommie Sunshine, Herve, Fake Blood, Zombie Nation, Jokers of the Scene and so many more.
Therefore, we decided to make a little party in Daniels (DEX:) hometown Ingolstadt. Next Friday - if you live in Bavaria - join us. Of course we gonna do the proper big deal here in Berlin as well. Check all of us out on September 27th at VILLA! Word. But...did I tell you that this Saturday there is also a Berlin Battery party at Picknick? We are hosting one floor with Larry Tee and Munk at Tanjas B-Day....Yippie...gonna be loads of fun!

This was just released on Vinyl. So here is a little free goodie for you from Exploited Records.
RQM has been involved in too many projects to mention here - but the most important thing....he is going solo now.
His debut is MISS PACMAN with top ass remixes from Oliver $, Dj Chernobyl and Act yo Age.
There is more stuff coming - watch out for the collabo with Sirius Mo - going to be released next year on Exploited.
For now, I leave you with the Oliver $ Remix. To be honest, Oliver $ is the hottest producer in Berlin right now.
From Jackin House, to Fidget, to Basslines. You cant go wrong with him!
RQM - Miss Pacman (Oliver$ Rmx)
Actually, there are not so many live-recordings of my dj-sets. I just found this one in the internet. Normally, my booking-agency doesnt allow to have live-recordings of my sets, cause they know i am always drunk, might fuck up and spoil my image:)
Well - here is one i did in Glasgow, Scottland for a party called Killerkitsch@The Buff Club. Of course there are some mistakes in the set - what can you do. But well, I wasnt drunk that day. And actually I wouldnt say thats an incredibly good fresh set. But at least its a good party set including a bit of disco, distorted electro, basement, deep tunes, some acid and mash-ups. So you get a bit of the Shir Khan-repertoire in 2 hours.
Shir Khan - Live-Dj-Set@Killerkitsch/Buffclub/Glasgow
The Bang Gang Deejays did it again. A new Mix-CD. The Modular Newsletter promises 45 Songs in 10 Minutes. I dont know if they meant the snippet for this release or the real Mix-CD. So I wonder how they would clear all the rights. However - I jumped over to the Bang Gang Podcast and just checked it out. Its superdope. It seems to include every single hot tune from 2008 and 2007. I also spotted one of my remixes in their mix (the one for "The Jai-Alai Savant" i once did). So now just go over to their podcast. Its worth checking it out anyway. Australia is in the hizz-ouse again.
a short message from my "holy" holidays in he countryside in france: i will do a very special performance in Taragona at the palmfest2008 together with Australia's finest GAMEBOY/GAMEGIRL. i can't tell you what is going to happen, becuse i don't know yet, but it is going to be spectacular.
There will be no posts until the end of august from my side, because i am in a place where the internet reaches it's limits. There is no "fast" internet in the countryside in france. a download/upload of one song takes between 45 to 60 minutes. There is always time to make a coffee while waiting for a website like "myspace" to open (there is absolutely no chance to watch a video on youtube..). It's like the 70s are back! and it's a test in ZEN-meditation...
so enjoy my colleagues' stuff until then. it's great (although i can not download it...) see you end of august!
The guitar player of my band made friends with the girls from make-up who threw their rouge at him and made him look like a drag-queen-indirock-guitar-player. He did this only to drive me mad, because he knew a was anal about or image. Another friend was so drunk that he lost his glasses, his purse and about everything else of value. The third friend found a "groupie" though he wasn't in the band. Not only that this "groupie" stole his purse while being with him in his room, she somehow also managed to damage his penis (no joke) so he had to visit a doctor the next day to make the bleeding stop. Friend number four convinced the poor guy at the reception that our gang had to go to the spa after the show at 3 a.m. to enjoy the whirlpool and sauna. We were already having a great party in these facilities with another friend of mine hitting on my girlfriend when Moby entered.
Moby played that party with a whole band and it was quite good. Anyway. He wasn't too happy about us being in the whirlpool and recreation area and went straight into the sauna. Well he tried. When he was about to enter our guitar player was just about to piss on the hot stones to see what happens or maybe just with no reason at all. Maybe because he was too drunk. Don' ask me. Moby ran out in a hurry. That's when I met Moby. I'm curious about what happens when I meet Drop The Lime this weekend at Shambhala Festival in Canada. If you're around, drop by. It should be fun...

No, this is NOT Justice. But a good rip off, I think. The original choir sample comes from The Joubert Singers (aka Celestial Choir), a gospel choir from the 80's. Larry Levan did a great remix back in the days, maybe you've heard it late at night/early in the morning at one of our parties. Distort fron france remixed the Keedz version too, which sounds the same, only a bit more, well, distorted... Blogosphers late commercial summerhit? Love it or hate it.
