Last weekend in Berlin this [2014-11-16]

Once again, last weekend was warm and sunny, and Berlin was at its best. Rented a bike, sun glasses on, drank way too many hipster coffees.

The burger trend is far from slowing down. Always a hunt for the best burger. Tommi's burger joint, a fine contender.

A new foodie hangout on Friday nights - Neue Heimat. A strange mix of indoor food court, music, booze, and hipsters.

October compilation 2014 this [2014-11-16]

re:jazz has done a number of fine albums (some of my all-time favourites, in fact) on mixing club music and jazz. This take by Henrik Schwarz and friends (see video) is interesting. It's quite calm and controlled, so it's more for the mind than the body. A cool head nod.
Lounge master Migs is out with new album and Blue six too. Always the best vocals. I wonder, releasing albums like this in 2014 - is there a market for that really? How many fans buy albums anymore, and in a club gengre that is all about the singles... ok, so I bought it.
Weeknd, as always.
It is so easy to get hooked by Hanna Reid's voice (London grammar). Can't get it out of my head.
