yo!

it has been a long time i don't write here. i was working, kind of, on new music.

after the album in cocoon last year i had to gig a bit and then i went out of ideas for new stuff. it took me some time to adjust and find where to go next... i'm still searching at it to be honest but, in the meantime, i have a few singles already scheduled, which is nice. i will talk about them when everything is clearer but i'm experimenting again with dance music so i hope the new tunes can make you dance.

in the search, i'm working also in a new album. don't expect it soon but it's definitely more dark and noise oriented. like a long weird mantra, if that makes sense, we will see what happens with that.

a few weeks ago i opened an account at bandcamp where you can find some vinyl i have and i can send you if you're interested. you can buy some mp3's too.

before i forget, there was some nice vinyl out in cocoon with remixes of my last album, if you didn't see them, take a look at it here:

new ep

after all the rush that was last year, music is coming back again. a new E.P. with remixes of my latest album for cocoon is coming out this month. john tejada and fairmont did quite a nice job.

remixes i've done

remixes are one of the most difficult things to make and usually after finishing them you feel completely away/off/not satisfied with what you have done, i suppose it's down to the fact that the song is definitely not yours and you can't never really put it into your world... well that's only how i feel.

here you have some remixes i have done and i still feel good with them (no hard feeling to the ones not mentioned here!!)
























i need to mention the remix i did for phil kieran's skyhook classic. i couldn't find any youtube or soundcloud link that's why i didn't put it here.

gambetta and rinse fm + tv

this post took me a little time, sorry for that!

I've some little updates to make here in case you don't follow me on facebook or whatever social network. the first one of these is that i've putted one of my songs in the cocoon records annual compilation, this year was the letter n. of course the vinyl box set is an expensive affair (but quite beautiful) so probably the wav file will be more convenient? in any case you can find the two versions following the links below:

juno
beatport

and of course the original mix on all youtube glory:



in other news, I was invited two times to rinse lately... the first time was for daniel avery's show where I contributed with a mini live set. on the show was also roman flügel!

you can hear that show below:



I was also invited to rinse tv where I did a chilled out live set... or kind of. the video of that recording is already up on the internet so you can watch it here if you want:



and finally, I did a podcast for the mighty blog sourdoreille... a little one but with some nice and really influential songs for me:
