It's here - the new summer-mix tape. Luckily Ben allowed me to use his decks on the weekend so I recorded this mix for you - dear reader - and the listeners of a local radio station called Corax in Halle an der Saale / Germany. Being aware of the fact that not all readers might be able to tune in to Corax, you can easily download the 45 minute long mix here:

It's not perfect, but I was pretty hangover when I did the table-turning so please excuse me and the mix for that. Thanks. The reason for that: the first rooftop party at the new place. Although not everyone could come it was a lovely evening and I thin everybody enjoyed the mild breeze up there, combined with some strong booze and, Schwäbischem Kartoffelsalat and italian-style pasta-salad. Handmade. With fresh ingredents.
If you ever wondered what G's parents and legs look like - here you go. Pretty lovely in my opinion.

Also Chris and me saw Diplo, A-Trak, Blaquestarr and some fancy dancers at the Central Park Summerstage on sunday. I rode Tyrone up there and was sweating like a rappist - but luckily I was not the only one. It felt like the whole city was sweating that day at about 35°C.

Anyhoo, it was really fun, especially because it was free and Diplo really rocked the crowd - way better then A-Track or Blaquestarr.

We left before Santagold started her show, but I guess that was awesome as well. Coming up soon: Jill Scott and Jamie Lidell - both for free as well. I love that!
