Four

produzentin.com turned 4 last week. I want to say thank you to all you wonderful readers out there by giving you a little present which involves the pants I’m wearing above.

The pants are from the latest Bernhard Willhelm collection. I was at the fashion show in Paris in January. They’re in the 5th picture from the top, the model in the coat watering the bucket is wearing them.

Get your own Bernhard after the jump.

Imagine Peace Tower

For the inauguration of the Imagine Peace Tower in Iceland, democracynow.org has an hour long interview with Yoko Ono. Dedicated to John Lennon, the tower shoots light into the sky and bears the inscription “œImagine Peace.” It will light up every year between October 9th, the day of Lennon’s birth, and December 8th, the day of his death.

Watch the interview here.
Thanks Alex.

The city is gearing up for Halloween. Each day another front porch is converted into a new pumpkin land. I can’t wait for Saturday when Christabel is taking the stage. He is cooking up some weird sauces in his closet.
Also, my dear friend Mary is hosting and the lovely Prancey Boy is back as the door girl. Straight from Scandinavia, Colin Bergh is sharing the turntables with me.

Drop It Like A Hot Potato

The Overpowered album by Roisin Murphy was finally released this week. A special limited edition double coloured LP is going to follow in November. It’s the pop-dance-electro-disco (whatever you want to call it) album for fall. My favourite song seems to change every other day, right now it is Body Language, which you can not listen to here but here.

  1. Aaron-Carl and DJ E. Dubb – The Door (Original Mix) – Wallshaker
    There is nothing better than an angry Aaron-Carl song.
    “I don’t want you no more. Pack your shit. Here’s the door.”
  2. Jill Scott – Hate On Me (Shelter Vocal) – Restricted Access
    Remixed by Quentin Harris. I’m always in on hater lyrics.
  3. Chuck Love – Beatdown (Jimpster Mix) – OM
    If you can’t get enough of the forward pushing Jimpster sound, I suggest his remix of 400 Years by Bob Marley and the Wailers. Trippin’.
  4. Kanye West feat. Dwele – Flashing Lights – Roc-A-Fella
    I still love the synth stabs on this one so much. It is the next single off Graduation. Is this the first time paparazzi is rhymed with Nazi?
    “Till I get flashed by the paparazzi
    Damn, these nigga’s got me,
    I hate these nigga’s more than the Nazis”
  5. Moodymann – I’d Rather Be Lonely – KDJ
  6. Grand High Priest – Long Time Coming (GHP Vocal) – Re-House
    Remix of A Change Is Gonna Come by Sam Cooke.
  7. Veronique – Use Me (Sunday Morning Dub, Afterhours Mix) – Wallshaker
    Another stompin’ AC production. The dub is quite peak hour, for later or earlier, there is the Afterhours Mix.
  8. Marlon D – Jesus Creates Sound (Main Mix) – Strictly Rhythm
    Don’t you love the cheesy “This is a journey into sound” sample, the hi-hats and cymbal clashes?
  9. Yass – He Reigns (Main) – Purple Music
    Gospel in da house.
  10. Marvin Gaye – Music (Karizma Remix) – Rotgut Records

Harsh with Fruity Undertones

Went to a Karaoke bar on Saturday night with Margot, Kevin, Mary and Uwe. We rented a private room. The room had black light, wallpaper with blue skies and fluffy white clouds. Mary and I did secret shots every time we got drinks for all. The bartender asked us if we wanted harsh or light shots. Mary said: “Harsh with fruity undertones”, on which he only rolled his eyes. We went with harsh.

At one point we all sang Bag Lady by Erykah Badu. So much fun.
Watched a lot of Erykah videos yesterday. Still, one of my favourites is Next Lifetime featuring Andre 3000, Pete Rock and Method Man.
Erykah’s 4th studio album, The Kabah, is scheduled for spring 2008.
