Pics JZ Festival

Mr.Windmill & Jay.Soul at JZ Fest 2010 pics

Here’s a link to some pics of my Mr.Windmill & Jay.Soul gig at Shanghai’s annual JZ Festival, 16 October on the Antidote Groove Stage. Only played our own tunes and got help from Willow Neilson (Australia) on tenor saxophone and Hwa Fu (Taiwan) on flugelhorn & trumpet. Great collabo, really enjoyed it.

Get Mr.Windmill & Jay.Soul for free

free download Mr.Windmill & Jay.Soul Shanghaii Lights and Perculationn EP

To celebrate our gig tomorrow at Shanghai’s biggest music event JZ Festival, we’ve decided to make both Mr.Windmill & Jay.Soul EP’s a free download at Bandcamp for a limited time!

Free as in: costing €0,00. A quick conversion learns this roughly translates to a mere $0.00 and also equals around a very affordable 0,00元..

500 downloads max, so get them both while you can: Shanghaii Lights EP & Perculationn EP. Then, as always, play loud and enjoy.

Rocking With Rich

Click to see bigger image

If you’re anywhere near Shanghai, come check my good friend Rich Medina gracing the decks at The Shelter this Friday. For those that don’t know, Rich is one of the world’s top dj’s when it comes to playing a mix of funk & soul, afrobeat, hip-hop, deep house and more.

Among many other things: he’s been holding down a 8 year weekly (yes, that is WEEKLY) residence at New York’s hotspot APT (Lil Ricky’s Ribshack), did a weekly party with none other than Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip over the past year and is the mastermind behind the hugely popular Jump ‘n’ Funk Afrobeat parties in NYC and beyond. He’s also travelled to most corners of the world to lay his funk on the masses. Oh and he’s a spoken word artist and producer too.

Support by The Lab dj’s and yours truly.

Update!

09-HeadphonSepia
I’m still here. No worries.

What has kept me from posting? I dont know. No good excuses, really. But here’s what i HAVE been doing:

  • Made a remix for Amsterdam songstress and longtime friend Giovanca. My extremely laidback remake of her cool song “On My Way” will be included on the upcoming collector’s edition cd of her debut album Subway Silence (Out: 23 October).
  • DJ-ed in Singapore at end party of Spikes Asia, the first pan-Asian advertising awards festival
  • Made a tune for the new website of my girlfriend’s clothing brand Spoom as well as shot and edited two ‘making of’ videos for them
  • Working on a track for upcoming cd of Dutch comedian Howard Komproe “HowardFM”
  • Promoted a 5-song EP plus 2 remixes (Alif Tree & Aaron Jerome) by Mr.Windmill & me to labels, dj’s and radio. Lots of nice feedback. This EP will get a digital release soon.
  • Mixed all vocals for 9 songs on the upcoming album “Goddess” of California/Atlanta singer Nonameko (Sole Profit‘s wife). Buy the cd or mp3s here
  • Re-doing a track with Swedish singer Cecilia Stalín (with whom Mr.Windmill & I previously recorded Summer Dresses)
  • I promise i’ll be back with a free download type post soon!

    If u’re in Shanghai, catch me dj-ing @ Barbarossa every Tuesday and @ The Shelter this Friday, October 2.

    peace
