Christoph-Woerner_slower-expectations_witnessthis

Slower Expectations doesn’t lower expectations by any means. Christoph Woerner, responsible for one of my favorite sets of the year has just released a follow up set that is a little more down-tempo yet doesn’t lack detail and keeps you engaged all the way through.

“Have you ever photographed yourself… naked?” had become a common question. Ironically after first entering the space I’d be renting for the summer, I couldn’t seem to ignore the image of a figure lit up by sunlight laying naked on the floor.

John Jagos, aka Brothertiger, has been working super hard the past few years – moving from Ohio to New York and working his way up in the music scene. From the release of Future Splendors, strong collaborations, and extensive touring, Brothertiger has been gaining much deserved momentum.
Jagos pays hommage to Talking Heads’ classic This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) which he calls his “favorite song in my life.” It’s gotta be difficult and exciting to read more >

KINKID is Jose Hesse from Rio de Janeiro.
His album ‘Colorine’ is the second installment of Rio-de-Janeiro-based newcomer electronic label DOMINA, following up on the debut of Manara that Witness This reported on a couple of weeks ago.
Other than Manara who gets a little more techy and dancy, KINKID is the slow ambient extension of DOMINA’s experimental electronica with almost every track containing vocals by read more >

“I love riots. I mean, I am not partaking in fights. But I love the adrenaline rush of being in them – second row, yelling”, David laughs. He’s sitting on my couch, and we are chatting about May 1st – German Labor Day – which is known for violent clashes in the streets between police and autonomous groups. We are killing time waiting for his partner-in-crime Jakob to read more >
