120 minutes full of tension out of the soulsearching studio ffm
and emanative's spiritual drum chamber.

this is a special show - sometimes you do feel it a bit more.

2011 has been a strong year full of musical discoveries.
be it in jazz, crossover electronic goes band stuff and also very good pop music
came along. all artists, keep on delivering - and we'll keep spreading then.

and just when you think all is being delivered another strong album arrives - real hip hop
by the roots. go and get the album, this is one for rap and hip hop history.
also check for more bass heavy remix action by new mysterious producer team close.
massive remix for scuba this time, little dragon next time. and song of the year?
lana del rey is definately up there, about time to give you the strong joy orbison remix.
plus a very beautiful winter flower which grew already in summer this year and a stunning remix
by burnt friedman, doin the shangaan shake. kickin off with another project:mooncircle gem btw . . .
this label is getting better and better. and finishing my little warm up set for the spiritual drums session
with a great piano player from armenia. highly recommended album !

this is not a 2011 rewind though. just another spontaneous soulsearching excursion.

and what can i say about the mix this week - the heavy hitters on the jazz drums,
from max roach to tony allen and roy haynes plus chester thompson and of course
steve reid. all in, 61 minutes of pure energy. listen very loud. big thanks to the man,
nick woodmansey aka emanative for this journey to the spiritual drums.

getting ready for 2012 with so much inspiration floatin in.
. . . soon back on the decks then. it's been a while . . .

next week:
the annual christmas special with rainer trueby and yours truly.

love is everywhere.

enjoy the  music.
