From Bratislava to Zagreb

Saturday nite was loooooong !!! After no friday nite sleep i landed late afternoon in Bratislava (Slovakia) to play @ da just opened Nu Spirit Club with my man Eddy Ramich (Eddy Meets Yannah/Compost) from Zagreb (Croatia) who drove there wid his friend Josef (dope deep house dj), we were greeted by Marek & Rado who runs the Nu Spirit Club & Bar (the underground bar has been opened for many years), after a nice healthy meal we headed straight 2 play, startin around midnite we finished @ 6 am to a few enthousiastic youngsters who didnt wanna stop partying ... Was kinda strange as the crowd never remained steady for a long time but we had some gr8 waves in da whole 6 hours and met some really nice peeps, Eddy started on some dope bruk shhhh & went to da UK fonky side of things then i went deep & bruk again, the most fun was playin back 2 back 4 da last 3 hours and testin our latest productions on da dancers ;-) .
As a nu club it really looks promising, i know i'll b back (in da summer plz !!) and will have more time 2 visit dis beautiful city, (funnily nuff i've got some slovakian blood thru my polish roots & saw a statue of my great grand grand oncle the General Stefanik, strange !) , really lookin 4ward to da nxt Kontrapunkt party wid Eddy in Zagreb nxt month wid Seiji , now thats gonna b a fun nite !!!

Leavin u wid an old dubplate i did couple years ago in Miami, some D'Angelo bruk ;-)

Havana Cultura

Shhhhhhhheeeeeeeit... Missed da last gig in Paris wid Gilles & the band, had 2 play wid the Sofrito crew here in LDN but still, Leeds & Manchester were brillant, all da people enjoyed the live cuban band (put 2gether last minute by Vince Vella & feat. Ogguere & da amazing Danay on vocal duties) and every1 stayed while we were droppin some funky joints in da clubs... The London nite was pretty horrible soundwise and most of the people were from the industry so not da craziest vibe hahaha but hey,
thats what u get in da capital when u do album release parties i guess... And the band still delivered despite the technical difficulties (its hard 2 have a good sound in a space that has very high ceilings wid only 2 speakers right ??? wasnt da right venue). I heard Paris was a smash. We still had time 2 record 2 songs in my studio wid Danay & Ogguere, i reckon i'll dfntly put one on my nxt (nearly complete) album, already tested it out and works da dancefloor a treat... Danay's got da swing !!! :-)
Check da album its out now, some really good joints on it & its a double cd.

As a little treat this week here's the UNRELEASED remix i did for da last Jose James single 'Black Magic'.
Turn da lights off when u drop dis one on da system ;-)

Brazil i love u !!!

Waaaaaaaaow what an amaaaaaaazing trip !!!! Just got back from Rio, ridiculous vibes om Copacabana beach da day they announced the city won the 2016 Olympics hosting, thousands and thousands of half naked peeps dancin' 2 da sound of Samba !!! Was like Carnival but earlier LOL 
Was lucky 2 stay @ a friends place in Santa Teresa, just above the center and not far from the hectic Lapa district where most of the clubs are... Had da privilege to go to a Candomble last saturday (Yoruba Ceremony, its like the Cuban Santeria...) in da ruffest suburbs of Rio (was like being in Bamako or Dakar in a way...)  and really felt the energies there, everyone wearing white & most of the people falling into a trance state while the bata drummers and chantings would go on for hours and hours... Truly profound experience i tell u ! !!!!
Sao Paulo (massive babylon, 20-25 millions habitants) was great too, ended up playin @ 2 parties, one being da legendary Sunday Sessions with my brother Rafael Moraes from the Nomumbah crew, good house music & da best caparihnas too ;-) (happy birthday libra brother Rogeeeeeer !!!!!)  Big up dj Tahira & Leo for da last minute set on saturday, beautiful crowd & got 2 drop some faves hiphop & disco joints, respex to Abilio Samuel from Subcultura, thanx 2 Tete & Chico & Glenda & Rafa of course, man we gotta finish that tune we started !!!

Nxt stop is da US
