What a fantastic release event! In regards of my upcoming album „Forget About The Music“ and inspired by my friend Teder´s release party in autumn 2023, I hosted the first edition of a new series of indie music events last night and it went totally over my exceptions.
I’m super happy with the outcomes - fantastic music, a chilled crowd, many fresh faces and connections and lots of dancing people - what else can you expect. It was literally the best party of 2024 yet <3
The event kicked off with a brillant performance by UK artist Riigs. The UK based producer delivered a fantastic electronic music set, performed entirely on the Push 3. The 40 min set was just a pleasure to listen to. Find out more about Riigs here.
Bernardo San Rafael
Next up was a short but intensive performance by Bernardo San Rafael. „Tension“ is an installation with a score composed by me. It's a performance about the relationships between humans and the urban environment they are living in. The threads as a symbol for fragility and distance, connections and ruptures.
Then it was my turn with a set that I first performed back in November at Sonic Playground 2023 in Copenhagen. The crowd loved the faster tracks towards the end and there was a great vibe again. The set included a few album tracks as well („Empire“, „The Worst Thing To Live Without“).
I will Update the post with the entire set recording soon.
Ingeborg X 59 Perlen
My personal highlight was the end of my set when Zurich based artist Ingeborg entered the stage and performed „Siren“ with me. I produced an updated version of my track „Swim To You“ with her and Ingeborg wrote new lyrics and hooks for the song that we re-titled to„Siren“.
The track will be released as a single in February as part of a remix-album titled "Forget About The Remix". The collaboration with Ingeborg was just a marvel - you can bet that we gonna work closer together in the near future as we both think her voice and my music are making a great team.
DJ Mike Dops
The night ended with a vibrant DJ set by lovely Mike Dops. My friend took all the way down from east/north Germany to Zurich to celebrate with us and we felt his passion for house music in every second of his set. Chapeau - I'm really honored about his performance and contribution to the event.
