What the hell is this stuff???
I have been finding me as much Cassy, Miss Fitz, Mara Trax stuff as possible of late. Its all super deep jackin house in the style of early Chicago house as in it uses an 808 and not a hell of a lot else. I can’t get enough presently!

So I am back.
Not the most exciting feeling to have but its nice to be home after living in a suitcase for 5 weeks.
So our european adventure started in Berlin, 5 days or so of hanging out in `cool berlin’. The weather was a touch average but we managed to find enough stuff to occupy us, half litre beers being 1 of them.
We got to spend some time with Simon Sting, Matt Drake and Mick the Kid who warrants special mention for moving himself back down to Berlin to hang …
For me, the long weekend started last Tuesday when i saw Radiohead in Amsterdam. After arriving slightly late to find them already playing ‘Lucky’, I was hoping to see them play a more obscure set of songs from Hail to the Thief, Kid A, Amnesiac on top of what was obviously being toured. Don’t get me wrong, there were great moments like Reckoner and then they were ruined by middle aged women clapping along to the beat of Just. G’ah!
The next morning my friend Nick and me rise in our …

We missed Cassy Got there in time for last hour of luciano in the sun – lots of ‘his’ set records, freaks come out, god made me funky, the thrill me thing he played at Fabric (which I missed) again. Maybe 1000 people getting into it. Wink played next but about 20 min in massive rain came down and everyone hid under umbrellas apart from mentallists up the front. …
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 …
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 :
Her live at panorama bar mixes have been untouchable, as has her Ibiza voice podcast
I managed to get a 4.5hr mix of hers @ Zukunft 11-01-08, which at no point gets anything other than awe inspiring, you should find this… it will complete you.

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.
I was going to do a big intro post all about myself but it is just us reading at the moment right(?) so maybe there is no point in that yet. Over time my distinct writing style will separate me from the other BMP members anyhow, think PG Wodehouse on crack.. or maybe …
