many things to tell you, i.e. about the baltic soul weekender, wicked jazz sounds, drum'n'bass at ENZO, Peter Kruder comin' to Frankfurt after 8 long years to share the turntables with me may 24th (infos & tickets: www.hafen2.net) and IG Culture who i bumped in at a local second hand store last friday and then havin him in the soulsearching studio a day later for a nice early afternoon session . . . check myspace.com/michaelruetten for a long opverdue new blog post soon.

for now, enjoy the music. next weeks show including IG Culture words & music ... one week later then finally Señorlobo introducing Lovemonk / Madrid with a fantastic mixtape.

best wishes,


As far as I know, I am not a robot.
