Summer Madness.

Friday, July 01, 2005

Not much new to report. A lot of beautiful summer days (there are so few of them, you have to enjoy each one!) and working on art and music. And grilling ribs outside. And drinking martinis.

I've been in the studio all week. Just got all kinds of tracks running now, many genres. I'm just doing what inspires me at this point. I used to be a track machine back in the '90s, when I was doing Pure Sonik, now I've slowed down.

I'm going to San Diego in a couple of weeks to spin and I'm excited because I'll be going to the Comic Con as well. I've been wanting to go for years, now I'll be able to! The promoters paid for my Con admittance. I'll be bringing some artwork to show there. And I get to meet my big art hero: ASHLEY WOOD (www.ashleywood.com)! He does the METAL GEAR SOLID comic, the only book I still buy. Hot.

And it also happens that a Basquiat retrospective is opening in L.A. that same weekend at the MOCA! I might be going down there for a day just to check it out. I've never seen a Basquiat in person, just in books, except for the Basquiat/Warhol piece that's at the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh (I went last year, I love that place, www.warhol.org).

They've got a new Basquiat catalog for this show, too, I've got to get it (well, I can't afford an actual painting).

The only disappointment this summer is that I haven't been booked for Mexico or Puerto Rico this year, yet. For the last three years or so, I've played Mexico City or Guadalajara in August, and last year I played Puerto Rico. I even had an inquiry about the Dominican Republic, but that fell through (for now).

I love that part of the world and have come to look forward to playing down there this time of year. It's so hot down there, I love it when it's hot! Oh well, there's still time.

I'm also beginning to get excited about this move to Berlin. Ticket bought, getting my flat arranged as we speak, and I've got two confirmed dates there already.

Leave a comment and let me know how your summer's going.

PS: Rent "Equilibrium," it's even better now than it was when I first saw it. The way the play Christian Bale in it is the way they should have played him in "Batman," and the Gunkata sequences are the complete shit.

  • Summer's going fine. :)
    There are a few festivals I have to attend all around France, with some cats I ve been waiting to see for a long time: Farly Jackmaster Funk, Ben Sims and Adam Beyer.
    Gotta make some music and produce an EP too. :p

  • Good to hear. Summer's always crazy in Europe 'cause there's no air conditioning hardly anywhere ;-) Farley just played here recently. Sims and Beyer are both good DJs and worth seeing, though I'm sure they're better in front of French audiences (I know I am).
