Straight in this week with Lisa Taylor and a bit more 90`s sounding freshness by Maddslinky, Rime, Mr Fingers plus a trip do Brasil twice, the great Marcos Valle with his new album "Estática" and the new breed as featured on the brilliant compilation called "Oi! A Musica Brasileira".

and...yes, roadtrip edition, vol. 2 - i had the chance to talk with Aloe Blacc about his music, life and more a few weeks ago before his showcase with DJ Day in Berlin. Very nice conversation in the limousine which parked in front of the club - now his album is signed to Universal Music here in Germany, Stones Throw worldwide. Aloe is touring Europe these days and will be playing five gigs in Germany as well, check his webpage for detailled infos about where and when - he is accompanied by members of the Truth & Soul band who also produced his album "Good Things". Don't miss and thanks, Aloe, for this nice chat and your selections for my girls and the listeners.

on another note big thanks to all the crews and dancers who came out to join the Havana Cultura sessions in Baden-Baden last weekend, special thanks to Telmary, Frank & the band, Alex Cuba doin the pop rock folk cumbia in a very cool way, Christian and the legendary bar crew out of Munich for the best Mojitos i have ever had....now i am looking forward to my french connection gigs comin in, combined with a family holiday down south France. And of course Amsterdam right after then....

next up:

special anniversary shows with mixtapes by the likes of Boozoo Bajou, Mark E, Aera, Carlos Nino, etc...

enjoy the music.
