XTERRA SWITZERLAND

I wasn’t sure whether to do that one or not, having been ignored and then denied an entry by the organisers (i for one believe that the least they should do is to give free registration to the pros – not being a princess here, it’s hard enough financially as it is…) but still i went as a last minute decision. Ideally i’d like to do 6 out of 8 races on the European circuit to be able to have a ranking, and since I’ll most likely give Czech and Germany a miss i had not much choice. + more

Mallorca / Lanzarote 2013

Mallorca: a fiasco of a (70.3) race on a personal level, but a lovely week-end nonetheless with great friends on an island ever so majestic. Biking legs were totally missing, and I knew it as soon as I got on the bike…the same course where I had a ball last year and was dancing up the col turned into a march of hell this year – 12min slower ! At least I could run almost normally, achilles was ok, 1h18′ on the 1/2 marathon is just about decent.

Guest Mix on NTS Radio’s Spirits Frequency

I had the honor of being invited on their radio show by my brothers Koichi Saikai and Kay Suzuki aka Afrobuddha, for a short interview and an exclusive 7″s only mix. As expected I had a ball, much respect to them !

 

We arrived in the studio as Amir finished his guest spot on the Morning Marauders show…In just a few years, NTS has grown into a big hub for crate diggers of all sorts. Big up Femi for what you’ve achieved, and it’s only the beginning.

New Partnership with Team Carbon Bikes

During the week-end surrounding the 70.3 race in Aix-en-Provence last September, I was grateful to meet and hang out with the great Lars of Team Carbon Bikes. We quickly developed a great friendship and agreed on a partnership for the following season. + more

Coming Clean About Being Dirty…

So finally here we are, the dirtiest leader of a dirty sport has now -sort of- come clean – with lots more to come in the future months / years no doubt. The story was almost perfect as LA said, but indeed it was a story. Quite unbelievable how one can be living a lie for that long, was that 20 years ?! + more

DJ Zyron

Just stumbled across Sweden’s DJ Zyron thanks to my mate Chris Morris and this feels like discovering a soul brother you never knew existed. His mixes show impeccable tastes across genres but most importantly are masterfully put together, with – yep – feeling, giving the listener “a musical journey without boundaries” as the man rightly puts it. You can find a great interview here, and here‘s his most recent radio mix which I can’t recommend enough. Quality. + more

Winter Warmer

Nice surprise to be the poster boy for XTERRA Guam 2013 ! I so so wish I could include another trip over these shores in 2013. Last year’s was unforgettable…Unfortunately at the moment I am the sorry owner of an inflamed achilles, a strained calf, a sprained ankle and a fractured rib…And I just signed up for Ironman Lanzarote in May. Vive le sport ! + more

How we got down in 2012…

Another year, another thousand of hours spent digging, sorting out, meditating, tripping, shuffling, cycling, running and most importantly dancing to music, lots of, more and more so. Cats like John Talabot, Cos/Mes and Soft Rocks never put a foot wrong, everything they touched was turned into gold. No trend per se, although admittedly I listened to a lot more deep house than usual this year, and a lot less “bass” music. + more
