DEEPBLAK Label Nite in Berlin. It’s funny to think that we sat together in Afrikan Sciences apt. in Oakland in 2006 as a small group of sonic misfits trying to figure out a way to perform together. Life has a funny way leading paths away then back together, but here we found ourselves in my new home of Berlin for the 1st DEEPBLAK Label Night. It was a truly magical evening, and a cap to what has been an amazing year for DEEPBLAK. To be able to merge my worlds in a night of sonic travels, was something i will always cherish. Afrikan Sciences, and Damon Bell in from Oakland, along with my Berlin massive of Loganic & the mad scientist that is Onyx Ashanti… simply beautiful.
Smiles and vibes in the air…definitely a historic night. To ALL DEEPBLAK massive worldwide your energy/love was present. It’s so tough to put a whole evening into context, but here is a snapshot. Also an amazing glimpse at the end of the vid of Onyx’s stunning live performance.

Got a chance to hang with the Deconstruct boy’s before their respective gigs. Levon heading out to Leipzig, and Anthony in from NY on deck at Berghain. Discussing socks, music, and my atlas pancake problem…
A few moments from Tresor (Berlin) withJoey Anderson and Steven Tang. Back Story > Joey flew in from NY with just a thin hoodie on so by the time he got on his bones had been thoroughly chilled by Berlin, but he went on to play a great set.
