Why Music to Open Another Door?

Many times in life we come across the moment when we won’t follow the crowd, right? This also happens with music.

We are living in an era where music and social platforms want to tell you what to listen to, which songs are at the top and which genres are the trending ones. Here, I will do things a bit differently…

Why Music to Dance Barefoot in the Grass Playlist?

Let's Kick it in the 70s

It's been a few years since I reviewed a classic rock concert. The last one was Jason Bonham's tribute to Led Zeppelin at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, 2013. Prior to that, I was covering a concert every other day in New York City, for about 2 and a half years.

Why Music to Persist to

After last year's election results, I felt stuck. I walked around in a grief-stricken fog for a few weeks, but nothing seemed to help. Talking to friends and family made me feel a bit better, but I still felt sick in the pit of my guts. Usually I'm able to deal with everyday troubles with humor, but suddenly joking about the desecration of the planet, my country, my niece's future seemed ineffably wrong.

Why Music to Go Underground?

I’ve been involved in the rave scene as a partygoer since the 90s and a DJ since the early 00s. During my long love affair I have travelled through many different spectrums of dance music but when I moved to Berlin I found myself doing a 360 and coming back right where I started. I started to DJ with vinyl again and I started to play the original style of techno that originally got me into the music.

Why Music to Burn a Million Miles

A Road Trip for me has always been something to look forward to.  Regardless of the destination, it's always about how you get there.

Whether hanging out with Mates or just solo, seeking shelter in your favorite tunes, I love doing some soul searching on the road and immersing in some quality Me time.

Un aspecto fascinante acerca de la música es la forma en la que viaja:

  • La música viaja a través del espacio
  • La música viaja a través del tiempo
  • La música viaja a través de las culturas
  • La música viaja entre las personas

Y en estos días, ¡Por supuesto que la música viaja a través de los muros!

Nick Cave's Time in Berlin

After the screening of last year’s music documentary “B-Movie: Lust & Sound in West Berlin 1979 – 1989” at the Mobile Kino over at Grießmühle, you hear people applauding when the credits rolled. It seemed like the film could make anyone shed a tear or two; it caused some to reflect on their youth, and others to wonder how the fuck did techno eventually prevail.

Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Chopin - giants of yesteryear - John Williams, Howard Shore, Hans Zimmer - giants of today.  Apart from the fact that modern composers haven't been dead long enough to be referred to by just their last name, these guys have a lot in common - they all produce amazing music that you can just sit back and relax to.

David Bowie's Berlin Today

Now that over a year has passed since the death of David Bowie, one might expect that the international music audience would learn to live with this loss and just move on. But we're far from that - apart from the obvious fact that the trend of tatooing the Blackstar symbol does not seem to be disappearing anytime soon, there's still no one who could even compare with David. Who could be such a genuine role model for so many different people. Who could record a catchy pop tune and still remain an unblemished rock'n'roll icon.

Want To Know How To Beat Procrastination?

Ever hear a teacher proudly quote this famous saying? While this may have been quite the inspiration in the 18th century, we currently live in a time where distractions fill our every waking moment. With all the push notifications, hashtags, social networks, software updates, and advertisements it’s no wonder that procrastination is more prevalent than ever before.

You are not alone.
