The days has become shorter, the nights longer. It has been become colder. The world is white sometimes, but more often it is just uncomfortable outside. It’s wintertime. That’s why a motley mixture of music about winter and coldness – for walking in the snow or for sitting near the heater. […]

Flying Sparks 2012-08-11: Swinging Mish Mash

The 50th anniversary of the death of Marilyn Monroe was on August 5 – with lots of special features on radio and TV.

It’s already been a while, since when I made the previous Flying Sparks set. In the meanwhile, the winter is gone, the summer "suddenly" is present, Easter days belong the past already. Anyway, it happened a lot since then. I was busy travelling between Berlin and Paris, for instance. This current Flying Sparks set happened to be extra long: 5 1/2 hours for a soundtrack of a night. In the beginning with cool female voices, then with funky club music, from Brazil, Germany and elsewhere. Finally, soft and hard bass sounds between dubstep and drum’n’bass. Music which I’ve collected […]
