About to blow!

In this post: Barthol at Tallinn Music Week and playing at Nälg.

Hey you, welcome back!
As you might know, I'll be playing at Tallinn Music Week. I'll be playing on two different occasions. On Friday at the showcase for Rada7 in Hoov, I jumpstart the night at 2 a.m. Next day we'll recover at LHV bank where I play an early show at 18:30 and I believe it's free. Bring your bodies, energy and friends.

I've been working on the special set already and it's going to be shorter, more intense, but also smoother. It will have all the tracks from the fresh EP and possibly some unreleased ones or remixes. It's going to be a dance night at least at Hoov on Friday.

Mark it in your schedule.

Another jumpy gif!!

Coming Friday, 2nd of March we're playing in Nälg with Zuks. We'll be playing beats to dance to. It's going to be explosive so be careful! Bring someone to watch out for you and wear a hardhat at all times. Photos will be taken and you could end up on these pages if you dance, are naked or do something else worthwhile. The last couple of times our shows have gotten out of hand and I hear I'm not allowed to have Westons anymore, but we'll just see about that.

You probably already like my page on Facebook, but be sure to join the newsletter, the form is on the right. You'll get 2-3 short emails a month with news, giveaways and tracks. It's in Estonian for the moment, as so are all the members.

The EP will be released here on the 7th March. More about how the EP tracks were born and at what time you should listen to which track, in next posts. See you at Nälg!


Back from Bars-celona!

Guess what, Patrick! I got to hang with Barthol!

Hey you!
So much has been going on that I don't know where to begin. I spent a week in Barcelona, which was loads of fun. Of course the local bars were a huge hit, but we also happened to be there in time for two simultaneous festivals. One of them was Llum, a light festival and their 3D mapping show was super. Also the timeless architecture of Gaudi really got me thinking about stuff. Sorry about the photos, as you know my camera was killed by a crazy bitch so I hadn't mastered the cameras I got to use.

Kicking it with Sponge Bob, Patrick was jealous.

Flying to Barcelona didn't go as smooth as it could have and I'm not talking about prissy Russian babes refusing to put away their luggage in the exit row. And I don't mean the Barcelona stoners, who kept pushing the stewardess button. As we were approaching Barcelona the plane went into the biggest free fall I've ever experienced. Twice!  I resisted the urge to lift my arms and shout: "weeeeee".

Our first night out was on La Rambla and Placa Reial where we met other Estonians and a French guy. As we were enjoying our plastic cups of wine, three cop cars came to the square. At first they were harrasing the local guitar hippies, but in the end they reached us and forced us to leave the square (in order to keep drinking publicly). Some wandering followed which was ended by dropping an unopened bottle of wine. It was a sign, we turned off Rambla to the narrow dirty alleys looking for a bar. We found a big one, at least for Barcelona. It had a DJ playing and a couple of drinks later I met him and I got to push buttons on the mixer. We ended the night with a spicy kebab and a half an hour of looking for a night bus to get back to our place. We found a bus that stopped only eight blocks away.

Other cool things to mention. Sagrada Familia is the coolest church I have ever been to. The sun shining through their vitrages beats most of the clubs lighting systems. Also its ceiling is super high and the pillars look like trees. It really is the one thing to see in Barcelona.

Many more things happened in Barcelona and back here, but I won't try to cram them all into this post. The biggest news is of course that I will be playing at Tallinn Music Week!!!! I'll cover it in the coming posts.

See you soon!


Hunting season begins

Dope ass beat

Welcome back!
Friday's party was my first live of the year. Below are some photos by Keiu Maasik. I played at 3 am and by then the backstage Jack Daniels and dry cider had worked it's magic. I had rehearsed the set 2-3 times before so it wasn't an obstacle. Too bad cold had taken it's toll on my voice and I couldn't sing Pick up track.

Starting my set

The organizers had constructed a cage on stage and fitted animal skins on the walls. Also we were the first to try the new subwoofers in Von Krahl as I heard. The sound was decent and enjoyable. Thanks to everyone who took part in the Facebook draft, 56% of  partakers won a free ticket. Not bad as a number!

Me and Tõnis the Organizer
I enjoyed playing my live over couple of months and I plan to do it again soon. Finishing the E.P. is priority right now and I still have to finish one track and get a design. After that it's ready to be in your night in the clubs, on the radio and on your iPod .

See you real soon!
