3 Years Local Ghetto – making parties

3 Years Local Ghetto – making parties

Posted by: on Mar 16, 2014 | 3 Comments

What started with a regular DJ gig at the lovely Panke, quickly became my very own party series. With all the joy but also the duties a party is coming along with. All parties I organized in the past where super cool and music wise also very ahead (“me and my 5 friends”). Moneywise it was always risky but there was always a regular job, where some cash came in. One reason to make parties was that this was the only possibility to hear + play my favorite music AND to make people happy with it. And this is what happens every months at the Support Local Ghetto Parties. This is it, why I still do it.

ChillOut, Baby!

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..

“Teenage Kicks” and again: John Peel

This was played at John Peels funeral:

(of course, I do have the vinyl…)

Yesterday I watched the John Peel documentary  “The sound of the suburbs”. The guys from awesome Network Awesome where digging really deep in youtube land and made this weekend special with all 4 parts. I watched it and I just can say (again): John Peel, you are my super hero. Sometimes when I think omg… maybe you should stop doing all this shit and get serious.. In moments like this,  John Peel is the right person to have as an idol. Innit?

I wrote a little bit how to do the mixtape series  “sharing means caring” and what is my personal challenge to compile “music for special events” As I’m not a producer but a digger this is even more challenging to find the right music for the soundsystem, the venue and finally also for the people and for the sort of event. (dance floor / background music) So, my biggest dream would be to create the music for a fashion show. Read everything and find the links to all my mixes HERE.

If there is a “hero” in my life, than its – of course –  John Peel (Wikipedia Link). The legendary radio dj from UK who did radio shows for 37 years! Started with broadcasting offshore on the ship “Galaxy”  for the pirate station Radio London until his final BBC show.

Just returned from a trip to Lithuania which had its peak at the wonderful Satta Outside Festival in Sventoi in Lithuenia. After visiting the countryside and the lovely city Vilnius we headed to the baltic coast to the festival. On Friday night at 9:00 PM I had my slot and what can I say… it was banging. Thank you! The audience was a the dream of every DJ. And here is my set. Its totally weird… as usual.. Starts with Beatz, Dub, Trap and ended in UK Garage Style… (listen after the klick)
