Homie J's best of 2010.

So this is Christmas! And the year is soon not more than a memory, so I will try to summarize this year as I remember it. I will try to pick the best music the best nights and the best people, and put them in a "best of" list. I hope that you will continue to wisit this blog 2011, I will try to make interesting posts and bla bla bla.

My blog was born in April. I had just abandoned my engineering studies and had nothing to do during the long lonley days, except of listening to music. I started my blog inspired by MRTN STHLM BEAT who became a big DJ because of his Electro Blog. I hadn't met MRTN then but I have now, and he is a really great humble guy. Anyhow. The best thing i did for the blog in April was to interview mister Indie-Techno himself Harald Björk read it HERE. Recently he Released his new Album "Bigfiled" and a Video to the track "Din".

In May I was dreaming about the Sónar festival quite alot, I started to chat with a guy in Berlin, Niclas Stanik, when I all of a sudden, slept over in his apartment in Neuköln. I was also Planning my Club "Täkkno" at the avenue "Satin" in my hometown Örebro, And thanks to JONAS BRAVO my dreams became reality. Jonas is Örebro's biggest Club promoter, but also a good producer. He made a mashup with the two tracks "One" and "we are your friends" that MRTN played at EMMABODA FESTIVALEN.

The best thing I did on the blog was to Interview La Fleur. She is magic. And I also posted DJ Nibc's best mixtape (in my opinion, I've listen to it atleast 100 times.) "Berlin Beats & Tansfläsche"


Summer! Berghain -> Sónar -> Amsterdam, came home broke and Happy, had two free days and then I started to work. My Club "Täkkno" had its first night. Where DAVID EKENBÄCK played. MARTIN BUTTRICH released his Album "Crash Test" and TIEFSCHWARZ released "Chocolate".


In July I was not that active. But one great thing happened. My friends Niclas Stanik and Johan Påhlman aka FULAST competed in the SECRET ISLAND mixtape competition and won! woho!


In August I moved back to Linköping and started to study Sounds!
The best thing i did on the blog was to Interview PAUL COTTAM. And Dorisburg released "Sinai Hypnosis".


September was a black month, Bar were 25 closing.


I don't know what happened in October, maybe I was sad beacuse of the autumn. But i can talk a bit about Sweden and the people who do stuff that everybody else is just dreaming about. I am talking about the new swedish labels, Power Plant Records,Aniara Recordings , Geography Records and Studio Barnhus. read about them and listen to everything they give out!


In October John Roberts released his Album "Glass Eights" but i didn't realised that before November. It is a really good Album.



Christmas carols and snow! and I discovered Smallpeople!

And I released the "messed Up Mood Mixtape"

I Have surley forgotten to write about stuff that I should have written about. Anyway, Right now I am Looking forward to 2011 and the spring sooo much, with a trip to Berlin, gig offers, Hosting a Club night, great friends and good music.
