Tuesday's the big day. I'm sooo outta here. Just getting some last-minute things straightened out around here today and tomorrow.

I got a "best wishes" e-mail from Stewart Walker yesterday. He's been over there for almost two years now with no intentions of coming back in the immediate future, at least none he's shared with me. He's looking forward to my arrival. Something about that guy, I like him a lot. His new album is really good, too. Very different for him. Listening/soundtrack-type music. No 4/4 beats. I can hear a couple of tracks in a car commercial, easy.

Tresor's been looking after me a lot, too. I'm doing a couple of the "It's Not Over" tour dates, including Maria, the night I arrive! I'd kinda been on the outs with them, but we've been friends again since the closing parties. I've always liked being associated with them, playing the club (particularly my two-year Love Parade weekend residency at Tresor Park!), and doing records for them. "Progress" was the single most successful release of my career and I hope to be doing more for the label. I'm glad things are cool again.

As you can see at left, I'll be attending Popkomm for the first time. The event has moved to Berlin (I think it was in Cologne before), and I'll be in town, so no reason not to go. I won't be playing or anything (as far as I know), just chillin'. If you see me, come up and say hi.

Hope you got your e-newsletter if you signed up! Lots more news to come, stuff I can't talk about yet! And if you wanna leave a comment here, feel free.

OK, back to packing. See you in Berlin!
