When I first moved to Berlin, I didn’t know anyone, nor did I speak one bit of Deutsch. Those first few weeks were spent wandering around the city solo, getting lost (a lot), and listening to songs such as this one. Flash forward two years later -- though I'm extremely proud of the awesome life I created, I never want to forget how magical the world felt those first few anonymous weeks.

I had the pleasure of seeing Claptone perform live a few months ago and was quite impressed that he played his entire set wearing a suit and a pointed masquerade mask (think, Eyes Wide Shut). I was sweating buckets so I can only imagine how he felt. Regardless that it felt more like a spa than a dance party, he had no problem keeping the energy of the crowd up.
