The Italian Job.

Saturday, December 17, 2005

Just back from Rome last night. I flew over with my "tour manager" Kati from Tresor. That's her in the first pic. She's a cute thing, isn't she? It was my understanding that she was Italian. She speaks and looks Italian, but I was surprised to learn she's really German! She was actually complimented by the fact I thought she was Italian.

Flew Air Berlin for the first time, too. A brand-new Airbus. I signed up for a frequent-flyer card.

The party was a blast for a Thursday night. People were going off! What a great crowd. Lots of dancing and smiles. Sound system perfect. A couple of people brought copies of "Progress" for me to sign. And although I didn't catch up with Marco Passarani, another Marco--Micheli--showed up. He was one of the Italian guys that hung out with us back in '93 when I was there, and he's in a bunch of the pictures I took from back then, so I recognized him instantly. A few more pounds (like all of us!) but still the same face.

The set itself was recorded, but it being Rome, I couldn't get a CD copy of it before I left. I'm gonna see if Kati can get me a copy (she stayed in Italy to meet Nico aka DJ Dry in Florence for another Tresor date). Meanwhile, I'm sure it'll pop up on the Internet soon so look out for it.

Oh, and check out the latest TRAX magazine with Hawtin on the cover, there's a write-up on me in there. It's in French, though.
