  • Feeling blessed to work with such amazing musicians like master drummer @hendrik_smock who is a real monster player! We had such a cool rehearsal for our forthcoming gig in Madrid next Friday. 
For some reason ALL drummers I work with are amazing - what a wonderful world!!!
  • I LOVE that one!!! Kind of deep and revealing once one starts thinking about it ;-)

This is actually a super simple technique that allows to play different accents in each hand. Very difficult to keep time though cause it takes a very sensitive touch to produce this kind of sound...
  • I love Caxixis. They're all different (my favourite ones are from Recife in Brazil) and they became the driving force behind my rhythms. Mostly I start my rhythms with them, a Shekere, Conga and only after that I'll add drum programming. That method gives a loose feel, a sweet imperfection and demands more human musicality throughout a session...
  • This classic Gibson was given to me today as a gift. Can you believe this?!
  • Many of my favourite rhythms come from a technique called mixed meters. If the basic idea is strong one can play relatively simple stuff and still get nice and swinging results. And yes, this is another album jam...

  • All those tunes I recorded over many years that I never put out. All those chords, melodies, time shifts, theme variations, conclusions... All these stories that I only told to myself...
  • My life is a neverending recording session. This is something from an album that was supposed to be House music mainly. Threw all original plans overboard and will make a record that ALSO has some of that 4 to the floor vibe but mainly just music. I don't know why I ever compromised so much to dance when the genre never had a space for me anyway. Album will be released next year and could sound like this.
  • Who knows what I'm playing here? It's a re-harmonisation of a very famous tune. Made it more than ten years ago, but after re discovering it today in my old folder I got quiet hooked and worked on making it sound good on my guitar.
  • My musical diary and some songs i wrote in the past. Look at the folder list on the left and then inside just ONE of them! I have hundreds of tunes that are wonderful to my ears and heart that still need to be recorded. Maybe I should give some of them to other musicians. There is no way I can record all this music by myself.
