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.

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

    Alif Tree Remix Contest

    Alif Tree - AUREVOIR (Mr.Windmill & Jay.Soul Remix)

    A couple of weeks ago I saw on Soundcloud that German label Compost Records had a remix contest for the song Aurevoir by French DJ/producer Alif Tree. Extended deadline was yesterday, Friday April 10. Couldn’t get Mr.Windmill in the studio earlier, so we had to do the whole remix from start to finish in 1 day. The original is a really organic, melancholic jazz track over a slow housy groove, with mostly live instruments. We rearranged the track completely, took parts out, added new drums, percussion and bass and sped it up too. Shake something..

    For fans of dubby, afrolatin percussion flavored, groovin’ deep jazz house.

    enjoy and tell me what u think..

    The sun has been (sort of) out in Shanghai the last couple of days. This calls for some laidback tunes to fit that mood.
