Berlin
clock for nightowls

Did I mention that I was supposed to spend 3 months in Berlin? And that moving to Kenya put the kibosh on that? I'm just waiting for Berlin to get complacent, then I'll pounce.

Claims to be talking about "the state of electronic music" (stagnant, apparently) but barely escapes the house/techno box. I love house. Love minimal. And if some vital motive force has really disappeared from a scene that's been astoundingly inventive for over twenty (!!!) years, I will mourn. But man, get out of Berlin once in a while, it's a big world.

Related: Slow Listening Movement. Those guys sound burned out. Step back, take a breath. (Of course, those of us without record stores call this "making a virtue out of necessity.")

Tresor's new spot in Berlin looks siiiick

And a youtube video of an event there ... damn.

AWESOME (my tour guide in Berlin penalized people for using that term)
