2012 in music



January: saw Nicolas Jaar and Holy Other live at two amazing Berghain gigs.

February: Never saw so many teenagers with panda masks in such a small room at once like at the Cro concert in the tiny What?! basement club. Not just that I didn´t wear my panda mask in the middle of Berlinale film festival, I also seemed to be the only one who didn´t know the songs by heart.

March & April: The Sound of Silence

May: Grimes rocks, Innergaze know how to disco, a Beastie Boy dies RIP MCA, Death Grips goes Yah

June: Open air barefoot dancing in the sand to Ornette´s Crazy in the Nôze Remix and Pashanga Boys ten minute long track Time

July: Mάρκος Βαμβακάρης - Μαύρα μάτια μαύρα φρύδια

August: SBTRKT is playing in my car, Dru kills Q with The Voice of Dru Remix from  Dr. Q´s 1982 The Voice of Q and Okavango Delta becomes my favorite mix of the year.


September: Acid Pauli carves the edit of Ron Flatter and Nick D-Lite of Red Mystery´s Jetlands into my brain until Âme´s Remix of Howling takes this place. 

October: Still wondering about what the "Sucker boners" Laid Back are saying in Baker Man (Also the the Soulclap Remix doesn´t help to figure it out). Finally got to interview Woodkid´s Yoann Lemoine for Arte Tracks. in exchange Tracks hands over Wavvy by Mykki Blanco.
November: Bruce Springsteen - State Trooper edit by Trentemøller and Cyril Hahn`s Remix of Say My Name are the best morning Yoga songs of the year.

December: Thomalla introduces S O H N, DelsFrancis Bebey & John Talabot to me all at one day. The year rolls out with Frank Ocean´s Pyramid and I almost get Lost in Moroccos waves. 

Plans for 2013: Visit more Boiler Rooms, see S O H N live, listen to more Dub & Reggae, buy more vinyl, listen to more music loud again!
