From Denmark, Sigurd Grunberger captures some magical moments. This series titled Last Summer, makes us all dream that our last summer looked something like this. The warmth of this series, created by the golden hour, fields, and the car he shoots in make us feel like we are basking in the sun even at the office.
Two hours outside of Berlin in the city of Hamburg Germany, lives Jacob Groening. Jacob teamed up with Daniel Wilhelm in 1998 to make Tanzen hilft! 2 DJ’s – eine Idee! Das ist “Tanzen hilft!”. Tanzen Hilft, fittingly means keep dancing.
Today we are focusing on Jacob’s solo set, Chairoplane 011. I came upon this set this last year and I haven’t been able to shake it from my mind. It begins slow and ambient, as though the soundtrack to a thoughtful foreign film. From here we build slowly, and eleven minutes in we are taken into a series of beats and piano that finally settles into a pulsing set, slower in bpm but so delicate and heartfelt. Vincenzo’s voice warms us further into the hour and a half set, and we are off, our heads nodding all the way. Download the set below for free and make sure to visit Jacob and Daniel’s Soundcloud pages below for hours of unreal music.

Fly O Tech is Demian Muller and Ernesto Yoga who hail from Chile and Switzerland. They have delved deep into the realms of Deep House, Nu Disco, Rock, and Tech House, bringing a new flavor that almost seems to channel Fred Falke’s guitar and the upbeat energy of Bag Raiders. Fly O Tech stands alone however in their traditional meets new age sound that makes us want to dance like crazy. Whether you are lost in an after party or looking at photos from your travels, you won’t be able to shed the shiver that travels through your body as you listen to Spacetacula or Wind On My Life. The rest of the album is absolutely amazing and we feel extremely lucky to be featuring them on Witness This. Listen to some samples below and make sure to visit them on soundcloud to hear more.
I can’t figure out anything about Timothy Schaumburg. I do know that I like his photos a lot. They make me feel strange and I don’t really get them. He’s like a modern day still life composer, and his photos of objects that don’t seem heroic, suddenly do. I’m also not sure if Timothy doesn’t want people to know much about him because he doesn’t explain much about himself anywhere. Check out his photos and more of his work here.
