News : Death by Jaegermeister

DJ Cruze @ Schmidts, February 2008

A big thanks to everyone who came down to Schmidts on Saturday night for the Vibration Revival party. I had a fantastic time as you can probably tell by the pictures. Check some of them out here at www.fullhouse.de. Big thanks to Florian for pointing me at these.

I have to say that the crowd were rocking and so were Alex Harmony and Luke45. A great time was had by all but I wish I hadn’t had so much Jaegermeister. Flying back to England when you feel very, very sick isn’t much fun at all. Also, I’m sorry that the party ended early at 3 am. Apparently they were worried about the noise for the flats around the club. Hopefully they can sort that out for next time. Big love to all of the people I had seen for about 8 or 9 years too. It was like coming back to Vibration after a long holiday!

Hope you all enjoyed the party too.

News : It’s almost time

I’m just about to set off to the airport with my headphones, a box of classic house tunes and a party vibe in my soul. See you all at Schmidt’s later on for a rocking “Vibration Revival” party. Mine’s a beer with a Jaegermeister chaser! See you on the dancefloor!

News : Grooverider jailed for 4 years

 Tuesday, February 19th 2008, 11:36 pm

Grooverider
Wow! This was an unexpected story on the BBC news website. The drum and bass DJ, Grooverider, has been arrested and jailed for four years in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, for possession of just over two grammes of canabis. Although I don’t condone people smuggling drugs abroad, and especially not to a country in which they have stiffer penalties, it does seem pretty harsh for roughly an eighth of an ounce of weed.

Hopefully the charges will be lessened on appeal or his career might well take a nose-dive. It would be a shame to see one of the UK’s embassadors of drum and bass being taken out of it for four years.

So you’d better make sure you check your pockets before you get to the airport!

News : I’m Twittering

 Monday, February 18th 2008, 10:24 pm

Twitter

I’ve finally taken the plunge and set up a Twitter account. If you don’t know what Twitter is then Wikipedia describes it as:

…a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send “updates” (or “tweets”; text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) to the Twitter website, via short message service, instant messaging, or a third-party application such as Twitterrific.

It’s a short burst messaging system which is similar to your Facebook status or something like that. It took me a while to see its merit but I think it’ll be good for keeping up with my friends and what they’re up to and also for telling you guys what I’m up to. So if you’re interested in what’s happening with DJ Cruze then check out my Twitter feed here:

http://twitter.com/djcruze

I’ll try not to spam it with lots of nonesense about me eating my breakfast but instead you’ll get updates on what’s happening in the studio, the big tunes that I’m playing and what’s happening at the gigs I’m DJ’ing at. And it’ll all be in 140 characters or less! So check out the DJ Cruze Twitter feed and follow me if you want to know the word on the street!

As a new father this made me laugh a lot. Daniel is going to get one of these for his birthday!

Vibration Revival Party, 23rd February 2008
Finally I received some information about the party I’m DJing at on 23rd February 2008. It’s going to be an old school party with some of the funkiest house tracks from the 1990s. For those of you who aren’t from Germany, Vibration was a club in Germany where I DJed from 1994 until the late 90s. It was an awesome venue and we had some of the greatest parties there.

So come on down to:

Schmidts
Ringstraße 6
69168 Wiesloch
Deutschland / Germany

for some funky old school house tunes. I’ll be helped by two good friends and great DJs, Alex Harmony and Luke 45 so expect plenty of madness and Jaegermeister!
