  2. Lido w/Muri Lost (Stwo remix)
  3. JMSN Love & pain (Dpat remix)
  4. Trippy turtle Trippy's theme
  5. Keyshia Cole Love (Stwo remix)
  6. Laura Doggett Phoenix
  7. Tony Allen, Theo Parrish & Eska Day like this rework
  8. Keyshia Cole Rick James
  9. Robin Thicke Too little too late
  10. Teddybears No more Michael Jackson
  11. Karmin I want it all

June compilation 2014 this [2014-06-01]

New releases from Mark de Clive-Lowe, Incognito, Mariah, Hercules and love affair, Röyksopp and Roisin. Did not yet find time to listen enough, so this is a quick draft. The only big thing (imo) lately is SOHN and The Sure Co - well worth checking out.

The whole album "Girl Sense" by Oohyo is pretty ok. Korean I think. Probably good for all summer.
Vic Mensa, I like the style. Nice vocals and with a beat, just like something from Ben Westbeech.
Hercules, in a club style.
Solo and S.P.Y, the only signs I have been back to Berlin recently. Still, I need more minimal techno but have trouble finding the good stuff.

  1. Oohyo Motorcycle
  2. The Sure Co. Persephone
  3. Mark de Clive-Lowe Imam
  4. Incognito Rapture
  5. The Internet w/Tay Walker Runnin'
  6. Trey Songs Na Na (Stwo remix)
  7. Solomun w/Roisin Murphy Gamble on you
  8. Mariah Carey Thirsty
  9. Vic Mensa Down oin my luck
  10. SOHN Artifice
  11. Hercules and Love Affair w/John Grant Liberty
  12. Robyn & Röyksopp Do it again
  13. Blood orange Uncle ACE (a jus ted remix)
  14. Solo The flea circus
  15. S.P.Y. Step & flow

Last weekend in Berlin this [2014-05-30]

Last weekend was warm and sunny, and Berlin was at its best.

Berlin
A start at Kaffemitte.

Berlin
Renting a bike is a must for getting around. You'll want someting cool. I often use Fat Tire bikes at Alexanderplatz.

Berlin
The computer game museum is pretty ok, if you are into this kind of thing.

Berlin
Parklife is exceptional this time of year. It is difficult to explain the vibe and just how huge this is. There can be thousands of people at the largest parks. Itr is always very relaxed and friendly.

Berlin
Tempelhof airport was closed a number of years ago. A heated debate has been ging on if they should be allowed to build appartment here. Berlin now has voted, and clearly said no. Check out this nice photo piece, Tempelhofer Feld – A Piece of Freedom for Berlin.

Berlin
One of us got all the attention when cruising the airport. Don't know why.

Berlin
One of the best things in the world, at favourite place, Schwarzwaldstuben.
