OneBeat Berlin is back to Joao Cocteau in Neukölln for session 5 of the experimental series.
This time featuring the trio ELEPHANT to play a live jam session to accompany silent film sequences.

“ELEPHANT are the ‘contemporary melodic groove collective’. Drums, bass and piano by Christoph, Antti and Marco. Various elements from jazz, popculture, classical, contemporary and electronica, whilst improvisation is the underlying core.”

Based on silent film sequences the following concept is linep up for the night:

For the session we’ll work with a wide range of footage, not exclusively from silent films but coming mostly from around the 1920s and 1930s. The night will be divided into 3 20min parts, each representing a different theme and divided by short breaks. ELEPHANT will be improvising to a sequence they will have seen before, but never played or rehearsed to.

We’re looking forward to it. Check in on Facebook www.facebook.com/events/378658952209262, listen to some more ELEPHANT tunes on www.onebe.at/en/artists/elephant or visit www.weareelephant.com for more insights.

Joao Cocteau, 09.11 21h
Kienitzer Strasse 98, 12049 Berlin
Entry is free.

lukas dj set michelberger hotel

On friday the 23.03 i played some of my favorite records at the Michelberger Hotel lobby.  Jazz, Soul, Downtempo, Deephouse.. lots of the stuff i have been listening to lately. I uploaded the first 3 hours of a 6 hour set.. quite a bit more downtempo stuff going on in the first part, and i only managed to record the first 4 hours as my old macbook’s memory run full. Last 3 hours where pretty much mostly deephouse.
My favorite part is the start anyway, mixing up the old and the new.. enjoy!!

Gilles Peterson Summer Jazz Mix

August 22nd, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Who doesn´t know about Gilles Peterson? For those who really don´t here´s a small introduction i found at his website:

“Music lover, record collector, DJ, broadcaster… Perhaps most famous for his much loved genre-exploding radio shows on BBC Radio 1 (and 17 other stations around the world including Japan’s leading commercial station J-Wave), Gilles’ insatiable appetite for new music undoubtedly lies at the heart of his success. Worldwide is 10 years young and fresher than ever – a benchmark for broadcasters the world over; global demand for his DJ sets is at an all-time high; the mighty Worldwide Festival (held annually in France and Singapore) curated by GP just gets better and better; and as for his record label Brownswood Recordings? Well, it just goes from strength to strength.”

Gilles great shows on BBC Radio 1 and his eclectic podcasts have been crossing my path many times and it was always a pleasure. Now, i do have a strong focus on electronic music in this Blog but this is great for a change!
Jazz..for those summer nights that are hopefully still to come.
