Spencer & Hill - Cool (Afrojack Remix)

I know I need to be cool. 

Afrojack had been my favorite track creator in 2009-2010, but since he works at major scenes, its quality and direction have declined, at least I guess. (djedjotronic is still great, comparing to him.) This track was the very first one that I got.

My attitude is always, ‘going my way’ ..

common senses sometimes become bottleneck. How I interprets common senses is the most important. Just believing common senses directly n’ straightforwardly is such a fool thing to me. That never makes people progress.

For example, many Japanese say 'elder people are great n' intelligent, always have a communication with much respect, and be proud of them. ' and this makes a sort of hierarchy at school-life, family-life, social-life etc…

I don’t like this opinion. There’re many great younger people, on the other hand, there’re many ugly elder people also. Age shouldn’t be a important factor for communication and life, at least I guess. (Of course, I always treat elderly people gentle, while I’m on bus / train etc… that’s not the thing I’m saying)  I hate Japanese words, such as “SENPAI” / “KOUHAI” kind of things…  I will never be angry even if some younger people talk to me casually. Elder people are all intelligent n’ we should be proud of them?  Treat “SENPAI” with much respect? Never be kidding. There’re so much unrespectable “SENPAI” right?  Also, It’s so awful when I have to be loyal to„,  awful, too talkative, non-intelligent elder people. Why do I have to do that? Do these thing are important for our progress? I don’t think so. 

It seems I’m not used to a traditional Japanese communication, because my communication basis have been American / English styles for years. 

My way is important. 

ummmm…. my way!!

Duck Sauce 'Big Bad Wolf'

"Big Bad Wolf" "is pretty simple, and it can mean anything, really, so we wanted the video to have its own narrative," says A-Trak, one-half of the dance duo Duck Sauce, along with DJ Armand Van Helden. "Remember when dance music videos used to actually be creative? Like when you think back to Aphex Twin, Fatboy Slim and Daft Punk… I don’t know why the genre’s videos became so generic in recent years.

"When Keith [Schoffield] came up with this idea of ‘crotchfaces,’ we just thought it was hilarious," A-Trak continues. "He started coming up with all these gags and describing the characters living in this sort of parallel world, and we were sold. He wasn’t sure if we’d be down to play the leads, but our take on this was, if we’re going to do this, we need to go all the way. So we played the dickheads, essentially."

Very sad hearing DJ Mehdi passed away yesterday. I was just listening to his and Thomas Bangalter’s track; “Signatune” today, when I was rehearsing my new dj system. 

It has been reported that DJ Mehdi has died following a fatal accident in which he fell from a roof at his home in France. The incident happened last night and has shocked the dance community. Two other people have also been hospitalised. DJ Mehdi was 34-years-old. Taken from -> http://www.mixmag.net/2011/09/13/dj-mehdi-rip/

Found some comments from famous musicians; Firstly, my close friend in Amsterdam, Joost Van Bellen tweets - RT @joostvanbellen wishing all Mehdi’s friends and family lots of strenght and sending big big love to all. and he updated Rauw Blog also. - http://www.rauwblog.nl/?p=5362

Some other tweets are; 

  • RT @ShinichiOsawa if its true totally sad….. RIP
  • RT @daspop DJ Mehdi. Sad, sad news.
  • RT @atrak I have no words. My heart is completely shattered. Not this.
  • RT @oizo3000 saddest news ever I have no words
  • FB_Mixmaster Morris RIP DJ Mehdi

Too young to die. We lost many talented musicians n’ DJs this year, for example, Japanese people encountered shocking news of Rei Harakami in July, and that made me feel loss and end of adolescence.  (I payed tribute to him at my “Happiness” compilation.) 

Please don’t stop playing his nice tracks, deejays! Of course, I won’t stop doing that. Rest in peace, DJ Mehdi. - Kota.
