Eurythmics live

First performance by the mighty EURYTHMICS since 15 years at a charity event in New York, early december 2019. they still got it, Annie’s voice is flawless.

 

Recorder Mixtape

Here’s a new mixtape from me, really love the House vibes right now, so much great new music. Most of it on Bandcamp, which became my favorite source for music.

Fred Again

Fred Again creates stunning club tunes from people singing in cars. „Stay“ ist out now and destined to be massive.

ANGEL OLSEN

Most of my favorite albums this year are already mady by women. And Angel Olsens „All Mirrors“ is another addition to that list. Breathtaking music.
See the video to „Lark“ or listen to the full album below.

SHOPLIFTERS

Korean movies are on a winning streak this year. First „Burning“, now „Shoplifters“. And „Parasite“ from Bong Joon-ho ist coming soon and critics are raving… 

GEORGIA (KRYSTAL KLEAR REMIX)

Great tune with a killer remix from Krystal Klear.

HAIM

Gotta love the „Walk on the wild side“ vibe in this new one from the Haim sisters.

PNAU

Great song, stunning visuals.

Package Design

Great package design from Jägermeister and Lind & Lime Gin.

Via Dieline.

Brad Williams

Killer stand up set from Brad Williams. Not for the easily offended.

I was there when house music took over the world

Songs as Pulp Covers

Amazing work from Todd Alcott. Songs from Bowie, The Beatles, Stones, Dylan, Radiohead, Pulp, Nirvana and event Carly Rae Jepsen as Pulp- and Magazine Covers. Available as Prints on Etsy.

After Life

Another great one from Ricky Gervais. Funny and moving, now on Netflix.

Burning

Burning from Lee Chang-Dong is on every serious best movies list from 2018 for a reason.
It’s based on a short story by Haruki Murakami and it’s slow paced with 2 and a half hrs running time.
But you get a tense movie with great acting by all three leads and gorgeous to look at – just don’t expect too much answers on all the questions.

If you want to watch the movie don’t watch the clip below, which is a standout scene from the movie and probably one of the most beautiful scenes shot on film this year.

Julia Jacklin

Some indie greatness from Julia Jacklin.

Toro Y Moi

I rarely find an album these days, that enjoy completely.
Toro Y Moi’s latest album „Outer Space“ is pure fun from start to finish with some super funky baselines, hot grooves and moody downtempo tracks.
10 songs, 30 minutes, and the all over again.

Free Solo

This movie is just insane. Go watch it, gorgeous images, nerve wracking thrill ride.

Corporate Mixology

So here’s a mixtape for bars, restaurants, hotels, shops or whatever you like. It features some nice Deep & Disco-ish house tunes that should fit well in modern concepts.
And while other mixsets are usually too short, this one is running almost 3 and a half hours. It’s availabe for streaming and download at Hear This or Mixcloud (stream only).
