been a while since we talked, been a while since we walked, been busy with life and shit. so happy with how y’all are loving 100 love and i’m sure you haven’t forgotten about come in on me yet. just keep streaming that shit, keep working those plays lovely. 

i’ve been doing some shit like redoing my studio and i’m much happier with the way it is now. cleaner, less shit around, cable managment thanks to my boy, more space for creative freedom. more usable space. i didn’t want any decoration, i want this to feel usable and workable. everything can be moved. nothing is fixed. and i’m achieving that. i ain’t ready yet but its feeling better and better. 

studio renovations

been going crazy with making music and new shit that will be coming asap. so much in this new space happening, from images to videos. been reading more of einstein as well. peace and love.

thank you for watching and sharing. had so much fun filming and editing this and i’m fucking happy with how it turned out. that’s the way forward and you’ll see so much more shit from me you won’t even believe it until you see it. currently working on a number of songs which will be out soon. it has to feel worth it at the end of the day for me though and i would appreciate your support to make that valid. love y’all for sharing; it’s the only way forward. i should be making something from all this right? sometimes a little discouraging when it seems that everyone else has it all figured out. but i’m still here and i’m gonna be here i guess. you gonna be here with me? 

thanks for listening and being there. you’re one of few so you gotta feel special. you are special.

redoing the studio

redoing the studio

redoing the studio. nothing can stay in its place for more than a few months and it’s that time again, things have to change. change is good change is needed. seasons changing right now, warmer and warmer where i’m at which lifts moods for sure. we cahnged time a few nights ago and my rhythm is fucked so i stay up redoing the studio. out with the old, and by old i mean everything. take everything away and add one by one, not much. walls blank, shelves blank. there will be no decoration only work. things that work. camera. microphone. cubase. that’s all i need that’s all i will keep. out with the old in with nothing but my imagination. 

100love music video coming tomorrow. really fucking happy with how its turning out. just a fun collage of a few nights. color grading is my enemy. 

started reading einstein: his life and universe. love a genius.

100love

all this a real departure, the starting point, the takeoff point with come in on me and we’re definitely on the right track. i can feel the love, your 100love from over here and i am so fucking excited to share it. 

we’re floating in the aiiiir soon 
fly with me in the aiiiir soon, 
the aiiiir soon, 
so much aiiir soon, 
so much aiiiiiir around us

 

100love out march 26th

been using granular synthesis and exploring its possibilities in love and humanity which is exciting. been exploring the space between memory and reality as always, as always fascinated by things between – beings between being and remembering, between loving and forgetting because forgetting is far worse than hate. y’all gonna love this one and your ex gonna love this one too i promise lol. just be sure to share it. 

mix is loud af too i dont even know how i did that, it seems this is by far my loudest mix and i may have pushed it a little too far.

cover image made on mallorca – where i wanna be, i will give everything to be there right now just take me away on a flight, 747 sky again, we’re up high again.

 

100love out march 26th

falling into peace

falling into peace

FALLING INTO PEACE

falling into peace in you 
in your eyes in your eyes 
i am falling into peace in what you do
old european cut diamond 
prisma for me, eyes like glitter 
rainbow in true color and whole 
pieces fall into me 
i’m falling into peace in you 

spent the day loving this girl.  spent the day listening

take me to the desert, take me to the sun. köln is dusty and dark. and summer ain’t on the horizon. fearful of the future. fearful of what you do to me. i am falling into pieces.

running from routine like it’s my job with no job on hand. tell me something about yourself. there’s reason to believe we’re all in this together. going to start a small studio space for me to feel free ’cause i haven’t been feeling free at all. i was never free. i’m never free. not yet. lots to come for that to happen. can you make me feel free? make me feel. free. 

in order for my life to change i need to change my life. and today is the first night of that actually happening. because if i postpone that another day, i will never live it. never. so better start now, you know? and i wanna do it with you. if you read this, change your life in order to change your life. 

falling into peace

just something i read today on james clears newsletter.

if you ain’t sure just do it, that’s kinda what i’ve been thinking about. so many people just do it and don’t think. i’m stuck thinking. that’s over now i guess. and since i put it out into the world it must be true. change my life. myself. one step at a time.

come in on me live

come in on me live

had some fun with come in on me and recorded a live version of it.

LYRICS

come in on me live

this ain’t my week and on friday i’m heading to the dentist aka death. fucking banger to start off the weekend we love that. tech is fucking me up AGAIN waiting for files to transfer how much time you want me to spend on that shit? wo w woo w 

tomorrow i’m at last about to start filming for the come in on me music video which should’ve been out weeks ago. i’m aiming for sunday, let’s get that shit done. 

done with you 
forever and ever 
done with what you did to me 
your white lies 
your tired eyes 

my eyes tireddd the last few days like damn how much sleep a man needs? more interesting things to do than sleep tho. you keep reminding me of that. 

you remind me of what i would be 
if i wasn’t me
too much me 
how you even cope with that? 

come in on me live

this fucking game i been playing makes me HATE the car i drive irl, man i just want a car i can make memories in. just give me that. cash where ya at? just imagining these cool german cars and me driving a ford. like okay. a ford. 

who drives a ford? 

come in on me, come in on me, get closer you, feel closer you

no strings attached

no strings attached

HOW YOU GONNA MOVE WITH NO STRINGS ATTACHED? 
GOT STRINGS ON MY MIND, GOT LOVE ON MY MIND 
GOT YOUR FUCKING LOVE ON MY FUCKING MIND 
ON MY FUCKING MIND

just spent the day worrying about you. you gotta know that. 

off again on again with what i’m doing but i bought forza 4 and a controller since i can’t, well nobody can get their hands on a console atm. i’m gonna need to make sure that shit don’t suck me in, suck me off too much because i won’t get work done. SO EXCITED to have something that will bring some peace to my mind though. i remember how much fucking joy NFS underground 2 brought me riding through LA and dreaming of america. now we dreaming of europe. with no strings attached. i’m so pumped to get into that shit and see what happens. 

cause you know that feeling you get where everything feels like you’re doing it to better yourself or to get money or to improve or to show it to someone? fucking tired of that feeling, you really gotta do something for yourself and your enjoyment to recoup. to let your mind drift. to recoup. to let your mind drift. 

mind drifting 
with you on my lap 
cars drifting 
with you on my lap 

no strings attached

and btfuckingway theres new music on its way. coming in QUICK and hot. fucking excited for this one it feels like something major. tell your friends as always. lol.

write them an EMAIL lol

mind drifting with you on my 
lap
laps round laps on streets 
in my mind 
laps round laps round
minds

if you haven’t played NFS underground 2 i highly recommend at least listening to the soundtrack. the title track, a snoop dogg remix of riders on the storm ain’t on there but you’ll find that on youtube. fucking memorieeeeees. wow.

weather going crazy

weather going crazy

weather going crazy, almost flew, light-weight, feather-weight, fly-weight – flew. winds picking up even more but i’m inside, 4 walls keeping safe, that’s what’s been happening the last year. lockdowns been going on that long. i remember thinking this would last a few weeks max. germany still ain’t vaccinating people at any reasonable rate. maybe i should get back to flying. been working on my art for the last couple of days and now that that’s out i’ll be focusing on moving art, videos and images more. i fucking need to reach some people cause hey my shit is good. like real good. my next single is scheduled already and will be out on march 26th. i am excited for that, really fucking excited, really fucking excited. there’s a lot to do in order for that to be a success but i’ve got time and energy. time and energy.

weather going crazy

been dealing with a lot of shit regarding the cover art for that single bc itunes seems to have restrictions and tunecore doesn’t seem to have balls. my last cover art went through with all the typography but this one was denied. fuck them. gonna display my version everywhere, that’s different from streaming services. well.

so funny, the wording: ‘GUIDELINES FOR ARTWORKS‘. how do you have guidelines for an artwork? corporate bullshit. buuut i am a nobody so nobody cares. oh well. maybe i’ll be somebody. i’ll shit on their parade with so much typography you can’t even imagine.

cover reveal soon.

just found this dude making my lockdown a little easier:

weather going crazy i’m flying away
wanna fly away
keep me flying away
step up, fly away
take me away
take us away
fly away
weather going crazy
fly away.
