Twitter is a really amazing service. But if you are using it without any heart bleed it’s better NOT to use it. But you say now: “Oh… but I can share my Facebook Updates automatically to my Twitter Account and this will save me a lot of time”

Going on holiday is a great thing! This is the time to start again reading books, long articles or listen to complicated podcast topics or: sleep, relax and do nothing.  I went on a great trip recently, a “there is no internet”-holiday. The selection of items and devices had to be done very wisely while upfront, so I spent some time on the selection.

This is what I did before I went to the to Egypt –> Basata, a very nice and smart Eco-Lodge.  It’s located on the Sinai (Red Sea) around 60 km north of Dahab. It is a very beautiful and special place, very relaxing and inspiring. I stayed in a beautiful hut without electricity just 4 meter away from the red sea.

When I go to Basata, I don’t just go to swim; I sit on the sand, sleep in the bamboo huts and lie on the beach watching the stars. No one is bumping into each other and you’ll be happy to meet and share stories with many people. ” (source)

I got invited to play a 4 hour DJ set on sunday afternoon at the Indian Spirit Festival 2013 . It was great! People where chilling and the huge sound system blasted the music also outside the tent where people chilling. In 4 hours you can easily do a lot of things (songs) including playing three tracks from Shigeto in a row but also giving the music enough space to feel the entire beauty.
I added this mixes not to my soundcloud cause some of the tracks where already mixed in previous mixes there. And my mixcloud needs a bit of love! DL available for the next 7 days.

Here are the recordings:

Support Your Local Ghetto” is very delighted to present Jim Avignon’s art and his band Neoangin at the lovely Panke in Berlin Wedding on August 15th. Jim will bring along his Brazilian friend Carlos Dias, a painter with his project “drawing exchange”

Expect a great exhibition, the air heavy with the smell of fresh and possibly still wet paint and a fantastic concert of his project Neoangin. We love his art–think pop art with a heavy dose of cynicism and criticism, which you will also find in his music.

Evolution of DJing: From 1210er to iPad

Since the 80ies I’m collecting records and since 1991 I’m DJing with vinyl. Never did it with CD’s. I love the haptic of playing vinyl. Digging in the crates, pulling it out of the cover and putting it on the plate. Placing the needle, move the vinyl back and forth to find the start point, adjust the pitch to finally mix it into the song which is played on the other deck. I started DJing with Garage House, so mixing was even more important as there are not only beats but also vocals, melodies etc..
