DAY 3: ZURICH
A wednesday night in Zurich, eh?
Rainy rainy evening, thanks to the brave ones who dared the conditions to enjoy a little bit of house music love.
That night we realized that those Yin/Yang T-shirts with our faces on might be our lucky charms. As of now, we will never play without them.
Main topic of conversation: how to keep a straight face while making a big technical mistake on stage.
DAY 4: LISBON
Boy, I love this city. (who doesn’t?)
The BURAKA SOM SISTEMA guys join us for the dinner+party combo. Kalaf, J-Wow, thanks for the Portuguese hospitality – and the pictures.
As for the show, we’re getting more and more precise, and according to J-Wow’s wife Anna, we even start to dance the same. Yes!
DAY 5: MADRID
No joking, this tour is shaping to be like the healthiest tour I’ve ever been a part of. Not to get into much details, but Sir Henry and I have been enjoying some kind of Dolce Vita way of life on the road, so it feels good to be in Southern Europe. The wining and dining is second to none, not to mention the ‘5 a day’ routine. (many jokes to be made here, I know).
True story: Riton tries to stay in room 909 every night in every hotel. That’s how serious he is about House Music. I tried the ‘Room 808′ thing twice, but I just couldn’t take the groove all night long.
DAY 6: BARCELONA
Man, this country of Spain, they sure know how to treat a brother.
By the way, being a non pork-eating mammal myself, can I raise the subject of that Spanish cured ham craze? I mean, having toured this country with Busy P, Cassius, Justice and now Riton, I can say that it is the only dish that you guys will eat AT EVERY MEAL! Now I can’t compare this to any other thing, except for bread maybe. And if you remember the famous Samuel Jackson and Travolta dialog in PULP FICTION, then you know how I feel.
Feasting aside, we did play our best set at LOFT/RAZZMATAZZ that night and I think we’re ready for next weekend’s bonanza of PARIS + BRUSSELS + ANTWERP.
Reporting live from Barcelona’s airport, my name is DJ Mehdi, and you’re reading the daily CARTE BLANCHE TIMES.
