Shir Khan@Opensource Festival+2 Livemixes to download

Actually, for the very first time I play in Düsseldorf. I have never played in Düsseldorf before. This Saturday you can see me spinning at the Zakkk Halle after CLP from 2.30 until the every end. It is part of the Opensource Festival.
And last but not least, here is 2 Livemixes of mine which were taken from my radioshow on Fritz. Grab them here:

le hammond inferno almost played FIB Benicassim festival... but then the storm came!

it could have been our biggest Benicasssim show ever, but then Nature turned against us... and we couldn't play.
okay, there was quite a breeze all day, but when the huge fire next to the entrance of the festival started (see the video and listen to Paul Weller singing about love in the background...), it all began to go horribly wrong. The wind became a storm (or something much worse) and during Paul Weller's set around 21:00 (after playing Jam's "Eton Rifles") the big stage was shaking so much that somebody came onstage and made the band run from it. That pretty much was it. The storm got bigger and bigger, there was a scary amount of panic all around, because all kinds of things were breaking down and everything was about to fly away (and i mean even the big tents) and we had this horrible feeling (crammed in the open air backstage cause everybody had to escape out of the tents for safety reasons) that something really bad could happen anytime... Fortunately it didn't.
Some hours later it was clear, that there was no way the festival would go on that day and the organizers had to make an announcement that the friday was cancelled.
Actually the only reason why the 30.000 mainly english visitors didn't riot big time was the announcement of the mayor of the village Benciassim that the bars in the town would stay open the whole night. Clever bastard!
Last really poor thought: there were 40.000 people camping on the site. there was hardly a tent left on the camping area after the storm... Imagine!

fire chaos:

Next day we flew over to Melt, who also suffered some bad wheather moments on friday and played a really great explosion-set on sunday evening. Thanks god (or whoever...)!

Malente's PalmsOut Summer Mix

This time it's not "Get on the floor and shake your body", it's "Get your barbe going and have some beers". When PalmsOut asked me for a special summer mix I instantly thought of the summer mixtapes I did when school holidays were coming up and a trip to greece or spain was planned with some friends.

With the PalmsOut mix I wanted to catch the spirit of these old tapes I recorded. Tapes containing music of all genres, cause all of your buddys have a slightly different taste in music. Tapes that give you a good time with beautiful, exciting and sometimes shocking music. Tapes that leave you be at one time and demand your attention at the other. Tapes like friends. Like those tapes we listened to over and over again while sitting at our tents or on the beach and having some beers.

In this blog thing we are in everything revolves around the dancefloor, the hype, the noise. I want to give you people what you missed, maybe without even knowing it: Music

like I said elesewhere: Music Forever

The Jungle Brothers - Straight out the Jungle

I was supposed to do some serious work yesterday, but instead I got stuck at Youtube.
From watching videos from "Bad Brains", "Andreas Dorau" to "The Sonics", "Kraze" to "Digital Underground" and "Del tha funkee Homosapien" - I got myself the whole repertoire of classic teenage Shir Khan-disco. Here is one of my favourite Hip Hop-Club-Jams: The Jungle Brothers - Straight out the Jungle.


Lorenz Rhode - The Tribute

Too many partys and a lot of Michael Jackson on each of it - which is good cause we all loved him. I have been hearing Michael Jackson tunes everywhere - in the car to Fusion Festival, at Fusion Festival - seeing ARK playing him - and well - he is all over the Berlin Fashionweek for sure. Also Boys Noize dropped Michael Jackson yesterday. Speaking of yesterday - I got to know Staygold (in the backstage with Jesse Rose, D.I.M, Crookers, Boys Noize, Amanda Blank) who also produced a beat on Amanda Blanks upcoming album. And Staygold asked me about Lorenz Rhode cause he just made a nice remix for Staygolds new single to be released on Magnetron Music.....well - and then I kept in mind that Lorenz sent me his Michael Jackson tribute....and since we still dont have one here in our blog here is one from Lorenz Rhode. BTW - its an original Lorenz Rhode production.
This is what he has to say: "Here's a little tribute I made some days ago, an hommage to one of my favourite records ever: 1991's "Dangerous". To me, the combination of hard hitting New Jack Swing beats and melancholic, sometimes dramatic string/pad chords makes for an intense atmosphere unlike anything he's done before or after. Like in "Why you wanna trip on me", "Who is it" or "In the closet", which might just be my favourite MJ song ever."
