Maxin' and Relaxin'.
A gorgeous day in Berlin. It's actually warm enough to wear shorts! I'm glad to be over here this time of year.
Haven't been doing much except soaking up the weather, writing and drawing comics in outdoor cafes, drinking lots
of coffee, doing a little shopping,
relaxing between gigs.
I played in Stettin, Poland last weekend, about two hours by car from Berlin. Nice city, great club. Small but very enthusiastic crowd. Cool promoters. They bought me a very nice sushi dinner before the show, the way to my heart. I hope to visit there again soon.
Yesterday I went to the new Tresor
space. Max took me. It's inside a huge power plant (Vatenfall Kraftwerk). Crews were working non-stop. The new techno bunker is underground like the old Tresor and is all concrete. Descend if you dare.
I also had a meeting with Tresor the label concerning my new tracks. They will be dropping this fall, but not as an EP, but on two separate compilations instead. One vinyl, one CD-only. I think it's cool, more promotion for me.
Giaxia sent me a new white label for "Elektrofive" to play on tour. The first white label actually had somebody else's b-side on it! When I was told it was pressed in Detroit, it all made sense. They fixed the mistake though. That first run might be worth some money one day, but I doubt it. LOL.
She also packed in an Entertainment Weekly! (sound of choir) It's like from heaven.
I'm off to sunny Spain day after tomorrow courtesy of Natasha. Should be a good time, they love to party.
Lastly, my chillout/lowtempo CD "The Art of Transformation"
is BACK IN STOCK! Get yours today before they're gone again!
Thanks as always for your support.
PS: I heard "Baby 81", the new album from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. They have returned to form after the horrible misfire that was "Howl." Kinda bar band-ish, a little shoegaze-y, dark, dirty, lowdown rock 'n' roll. I'll be getting this one for sure.
