Upcoming DJ Gigs

Some Studio Pictures

Hi everyone,

I had to take a few pictures to file with my taxes so I figured, I let you all see where most of the 'magic' happens. Just got the mixer couple of weeks ago. Vestax R-1 .. Oh yes, I was skeptical myself. The last Vestax mixer didn't work out too well for me but this one.. OH OH OH > masterpiece .. it sounds soooo clean and the mixing is soooo smooth  ..

Grooverider Sentenced To Four Years

Grooverider1.jpg{xtypo_dropcap}T{/xtypo_dropcap}raveling DJs, listen up.
After well known Drum & Bass DJ Grooverider had been arrested at Dubai (UAE) airport back in November 2007 for the possession of 2.16g of Cannabis (and some rumors also mentioned some porn .. big woop), he has now been sentenced to FOUR years in jail.

Dubai has been growing rapidly as a clubbing city, among other things, inviting many international DJs, from true underground to very well known.

From what I understand, four years is the mandatory sentence if you violate the United Arab Emirates zero tolerance laws. Many travelers are oblivious to these laws and get themselves into trouble, especially since some painkillers and cold medication (even if available over the counter in other countries) are also included.

How about the guy who was jailed because they found 3 poppy seeds on him? Those three seeds were left over from a roll he had eaten at Heathrow airport. Read about him and also find out more about Keith Brown, who was arrested and sentenced to 4 years in jail after 0.003g of cannabis - which weighs less than a grain of sugar - was found stuck to his shoe.

So, everyone.. please educate yourself about the reigning laws of the countries you are traveling to, no matter how ridiculous they may seem to you.
I know, I will double check my luggage and clothing even more than before.

Merry Xmas And A Happy New Year

All the best wishes for this holiday season & a safe and prosperous 2008.

Merry X-Mas

I hope you are able to celebrate christmas in the circle of your loved ones and already know where to party into the new year. Please be careful, leave your car at home and make sure you turn into the first DSoH on January 1st 2008. Thank you for your continued support and love in the past years.

Lars Behrenroth Rocking Ecuador

{xtypo_dropcap}E{/xtypo_dropcap}cuador, I'm loving it.
My wife and I already got here a few weeks ago and it's beautiful. The weather is great, the people are nice and everyday feels like a real vacation including swimming in the pool, working out, sleeping whenever necessary and eating very well.

But what would travelling be if I wouldn't DJ anywhere. I DJ'ed two gigs in Guayaquil already (you might have seen the info in the upcoming event section) and let me tell you, people here like their music underground and deep (with a techy twist). The pictures are downloading to my computer right now and I'll post 'em when I get around to it (remember.. it's a vacation :)


Tomorrow Dec 22nd we'll be driving or flying to Quito since I have a gig there and then on the 29th it's off to Montanita where I'm DJing right by the beach. More info in the 'Lars Behrenroth upcoming DJ gigs section' . I'll make sure we'll take pictures and maybe even some video footage there as well.


Alright . off to the gym ..


Could It Be Any More True?

My wife Kat just sent this to me via StumbleUpon and our reaction was exactly the same.
'This is soooo like us' :) but luckily in addition we both get out on the weekends when I DJ.


Bored on the Internet? get StumbleUpon

StumbleUpon Logo I wanted to let you know about the perfect tool against the occasional moments of boredom in life. Sign up for StumbleUpon , I guess you can call it another community based link service. But in reality it is much more than just that. It's free of charge and you come across the coolest sites online for which you otherwise would have to wait until one of your 'cool' online friends sends you a link.

From the Firefox Extensions page:
StumbleUpon lets you "channelsurf" the best-reviewed sites on the web. It is a collaborative surfing tool for finding and sharing great sites. This helps you find interesting webpages you wouldn't think to search for.

StumbleUpon is pretty much based on the principle that people share their favorite discovered sites / pages / videos / images online, only that it's right now 2,5million stumblers who suggest, review and tag websites in any range of date / topic or whatnot. Once you sign up you will be asked for your topics of interest. That's the minimum you should spend a few minutes on when you join.
Done that?

Continue Reading site as a graph

Just came across this java applet that shows websites as sitegraphs. I had checked it out a while back w/ the old website design but now the graph's so much prettier :)  .. it grows with every playlist, blogpost, comment, podcast, link etc. that I add to

some portraits shot by Adam Gibbons from Soul Revival, Boston.

Soul Funktion during the DEMF in Detroit was the bomb .. EVERYONE WHO WAS PART OF THIS PARTY DID AN AMAZING JOB. When I arrived in Detroit on Sat. night and talked to a few people, it seemed like everyone already knew about what was gonna go down on May 27th to the Fi-Nite Gallery. The line up was mos def a big part of what drove people to this event.
