House music all night long

Germany is great. Over here you can pick your nose and eat it and no one will blink an eyelid. Some guy a few days ago was riding down the road having a dig in his nose with his little finger and when he saw me looking at him he pulled his finger out and sucked it, keeping eye contact as he rode past me down the road.
I lost a whole bunch of Raresh sets off my Ipod (same set in fact but split in 5 and i can’t even …

On the house front

To silence the Old man’s moaning yesterday, heres a lil something from the other old man of BMP…. I am loving the new deep house vibe coming outta Europe championed by such super dj types as :
Cassy
Her live at panorama bar mixes have been untouchable, as has her Ibiza voice podcast

Kreuzberg BMP check in

Hello
My name is Benny and at the moment along with my friend Mick I am representing the overseas section of the BMP.
Hopefully in the next few days I will post about our experiences here in Berlin.

Music is a universal language

yet the BMP has its own form of dialogue.
Like the voyagers of the starship enterprise we seek new noises that move us physically, emotionally and sometimes intellectually.
We members of the BMP share common interests in the realms of modern music, yet we also have our own areas of expertese and obsession.
If the other fuckers ever post perhaps they will share some of theirs.

Music

We live in a world of corrupt radio, concert ticket price-gouging, product placement in songs, Chain Store censorship—not to mention war, poverty, global warming and the so called food crisis.  
Music keeps us going through it all
Music makes us feel good
Music carries us past the stress
Music inspires us
Music makes the connections between people that give us hope for the future
Music insists that a better world is possible and music makes us believe that this can be true
 
and if Music can’t do this for us there is always beer and pizza
