Where’s the referee when politicians play foul?

Where’s the referee when politicians play foul?

It's the World Cup in Brazil. Everybody's watching football (yes, including yours truly). Nobody's watching the politicians. And what are they doing? They are passing all the laws, that they don't want us to know about and protest against. They pass them secretly in a...

Today’s match: Brazil Police vs The People

Today finally the football world cup in Brazil starts. And as much as I'm a fan of football and support the German team, I am shocked like many of you about the way, the "beautiful game" has been taken out of the hands of the people by the leaders of FIFA in...

Boiler Room Poster Boy

Have you ever wondered about that quite familiar looking young dude that you always see on the screens of Berlin's Boiler Room sessions, flipping 3,5" floppy disks in an old school sampler and smirking into the camera whilst twiddling knobs on his 303? Yep, that's me....

Ali Love – P.U.M.P.

Ali Love – P.U.M.P.

this is quite a great album. Modern House music with a funky twist, not fishing for compliments but so much capable to cross over. Especially "Surrender", a funky joint that I would have loved to drop on discontinued motherfunk. So expect me to feature P.U.M.P. on my...
