When I met Bjork 2 years ago at the now defunct but amazing party ‘Charm School’ (hosted by The Trinity), she punched me in the stomach and then gracefully posed for 2 pictures. I’ve been a fan ever since.
1. ‘Earth Intruders’, Bjork
2. Beatles vs Radiohead
1. Standing In The Way Of Connection. When I spoke to Beth at SXSW she didn’t mention having a baby with Justine (courtesy of TouchExplode.com):
2. 99 Luftproblems. I always get requests for this mashup of 99 Problems and 99 Luftballoons when I DJ:
Steve Aoki and Junior Sanchez in a hotel room trading music from their laptops, while Alexander Technique and I chill in the background. NIN, Uffie, Prince, Justice, Cat Stevens, Bob Sinclar, Stevie Nicks, Phil Collins, Front 242 and more…
(music plays from Junior’s Itunes)
Junior SANCHEZ: That’s new Nine Inch Nails. You should take that… These are remixes by Photek…
Steve Aoki: Ohhhh, that’s great!
Junior SANCHEZ: This is the original song. ‘Survivalism’. It’s from the album ‘Year Zero’.
Steve Aoki: It’s not out yet?
Junior SANCHEZ: No.
Bronques: How’d you get that Junior?
Junior SANCHEZ: The same way that everybody else gets it… BLOGS! (Everybody laughs)
On the dancefloor at a club in Las Vegas, Kid 606 walks up to me in a talkative mood. The music is so loud we’re yelling…
Kid 606: I’m trying to figure out what medications work best… Balancing the clinical with the medical. The street medicines with the pharmaceuticals… But overall it’s all about being macrobiotic, and it’s about like, forgetting where you came from, and not worrying about if people are dancing or not, but if they ARE dancing it’s good.
Bronques: Oh, good… (mis-understanding medication for meditation) How do you meditate?
Kid 606: I read a David Lynch book once that says how to meditate and thought, if it works for David Lynch it’ll work for me.
Bronques: How does HE meditate?
