Boom 2008 reviewOktober 22nd, 2008
(Don’t know why but somehow I totally forgot about this one… Almost finished it rested on my hard drive for two months now. Hope you still enjoy this extensive review on Boom 2008!)
An unexpected mass of visitors and a fatal bar code system error led to some worse trouble right at the beginning of Boom. But no doubt: Those who finally managed to enter the festival ground witnessed pure magic going on on the shores of the reservoir in Idanha-a-Nova.
Actually it was not really horrible but still not very comfortable to wait for 10 hours in the traffic jam in front of the entry gates at Boom festival 2006. But I was pretty happy when a friend of mine called me a few weeks before the festival and asked for helping him with the setup and care of the light projections he should bring to the Ambient Forest.

Prime Time live setOktober 14th, 2008
No doubt, there are heaps of good music out there and the ever growing spreading of high performance computers, affordable studio monitors and file sharing makes their number bigger and bigger every day. As a passionated DJ it has become quite tricky and elaborate to find that certain special highlight tracks among all that good productions out there. Today this live set by the French act Prime Time crossed my way and attracted my attention. In fact it does not really reinvent the wheel (well, what does?) but I like it because of its dark, very psychedelic atmosphere. Minimal but still pretty driving. Perfect sounds for some acidic after hour… Hope you enjoy it too!
