Wow! July was an amazing month.
It started off with a gig at the Mado Lounge 52 Floors above Tokyo in front of ceiling to floor windows breaking in a brand spanking new Funktion One Turbosound PA system. The sound crew were actually still taking off the wrappers when I was setting up for my sound check.
Following that I joined the Grain Records Tour Down to Osaka and Fukui. It was absolutely fantastic and so much fun, I am so happy and inspired to be a part of the Grain Records crew.
A big thanks to everyone who brought us down and showed us such a great time and to all who came to stroke chins and/or shake some booty.
The next weekend was spent in the mountains of Chichibu with Monster Stereo and the Just Do It! crew. Again stellar sound and true, from the bottom of the heart techno spirit.
I simply cannot put the experience into words so I am not even going to try. Love and respect to all who came down and those who made it happen.
Then to top it all off on the last weekend a two and a half hour drive deep into Yamanashi to play an outdoor party at a camp site modeled after a primitive Japanese village. Steep green ravines and misty skies, a crystal clear river and turbosound…
I am so grateful for everyone who has given such love and respect to me and my music, for teaching me how to get my hula hoop action on and the incalculable value of play.
Looking forward to many more months like this.
