Somebody was so kind to put more videos of that night online, that we keep in such good memory… it was our last show of the October/November 2009 performance tour, and we really ripped our hearts out that night. Audio quality is so so, but it’s amazing to have these snippets online. We had so much fun!!

We are so happy and excited to announce our gig at the legendary Trouw club, on February 6th, 2010.
We are playing with the fabulous 360 Dj team, consisting of the fantastic Patrice Bäumel and legendary Nuno dos Santos, two of the amazing Dutchies we were fortunate enough to meet in the past few months.
Also, many many thanks to wonderful Esther aka Estroe holding up the sign in the picture, and to the two bystanders, Johanna Mercker and Eva Maria! The picture was taken at the Trouw after the three’s gig in early January.
There is a loooong article (sorry, all in German, but for our dear English speakers: Resident Advisor will publish a long issue too) about our performance tour in India in the current issue (No. 139) of the German De:Bug magazine, and the PDF can be found here.
Thanks to Arno Raffeiner for joining us for the whole trip and writing all these articles, and thanks to Ronni Shendar who did not stop taking all these amazing pictures along the way!!
Happy 2010 everybody! And: as of today, there is no turning back- I just handed over the master CDs to the company handling the physical production. And i am very very VERY happy to announce that in just a few months, on the 17th of May to be exact, my next album will be released.
The title is ‘Privilege’, and this time it’s a double CD, consisting of 20 tracks and a total running time of 2 hours and 21 minutes. There will also be a double vinyl edition of the album. It comes with a stunningly beautiful, extensive booklet by Ronni Shendar, featuring photographs that she took during our joint performance tours in 2009.
I worked for more than a year on this album, and I am really proud (and relieved) that it’s finally done. ‘Privilege’ is a very serious album in many ways.
‘Privilege’ deals, in a very abstract way, with the fortune of living out a dream in a world that does not grant all people with the same opportunities. Over the last year I had the fortune to visit places around the globe in which I felt the obscene wealth of opportunities I have in life. It’s hard to bear that the majority of humanity will never have the chance to even dream of who and what they could have been. More will be said about it soon…
And now I wish I hadn’t have to wait for another four months for it to be out…
