Wow can you believe Januari is almost gone?! It flew by so fast.. but what a great last weekend I just had !! Every year my friend Tommy Lipnick invites me to dj in Davos at the World Economic Forum which is an economic conference where leaders in their respective fields get together to discuss ideas and directions for the world. Some people are critical as a lot of the people involved in this forum are extreme wealthy and some argue that equality in the distribution of wealth is a problem in itself when it comes to a better world. I mostly see that the people that are this wealthy often use there resources, money and power in a very contructive way, they understand with money comes responsibility and the people I have met often played a very constructive role in creating a better world. This conference tries to set some hot topics on the agenda and actively promotes peace initiatives for many different conflicts around the world. A good and positive thing I believe.
So this weekend I flew off to Davos, a lovely mountain village in Switzerland, some 1800 meters above sea level, the drive alone is an experience as you are greated by James Bond style security check points and this drive was especially thrilling because i was driving with Brandon Flowers and his musician friends, im a big fan of the Killers so it was exciting to meet Brandon and i got an opportunity to get to know him a little better, he is a great and very positive dude.
The party was great, Brandon played an amazing set and the crowd loved it, I played a set full of fun records with sexy bass lines and some classics for the older kids : ), I'm not going to lie it is strange to see people in front of you that have so much power in the world ( i’m not going to name names as i believe i should be discrete ) but after 5 minutes of being in awe you just realize its another dance floor that needs to be served, I hung out with a few fun people afterwords and one particularly famous entrepeneur invited me in his helicopter the next day to chopper back to Zurich, not a bad way to travel !!
The weekend wasn't over and i ended up in a underground parking garage in Antwerp the next day, the party was called The Brunch and it was fantastic. They recreated a mini festival with 5 incredible pop up stores serving fantastic food, my friend sket185 live painted, there was a tattoo artist and a barber. This party was so ridiculously amazing, i cant even explain all the details. Nick Bril who works and partly owns The Jane in Antwerp dj’d with me and Tears and Marble form The Hague did one of their crazy underground performances. Basically lots of friends having lots of fun, i played a pretty bad ass set if i may say so myself and i was very very happy with the flow of the music and the build up. I cannot wait to dj for them again in the future!!
These coming weeks im going to be focusing on my next tracks and prepare a long tour starting end of Februari in Mexico, on the 23d of Februari my new single will be released through Spinnin Deep and I have an exclusive detail of that release to share with you guys.. It features THE AUDIO BULLYS !!!! and its pretty hot if I may say so myself.
Stay classy everybody, speak soon
