Taking a swim in the lake, eating about three sausages and Ben UFO on stage. Vague memories concerning a festival somewhere in Germany. Here UFO started to gain my credentials. Not because of himself, but because I never saw him before. The vibe at the festival will’ve added a lot to the dj-set, an early sunny morning at Nachtdigital is pretty hard to ruin. But for me this was the peak of the event. He went from fast to slow and vice versa with sexy soulful tunes, classics and unreleased tracks. Ben UFO used everything he had.
After watching about a hundred Youtube videos and online sets I’m still far away from that sunny Saturday morning, in that quiet little town at the (to my memory) clear water lake surrounded by a beautiful forest. Still the Internet did kind off calm me down. With his Boilerroom sets you’re guaranteed to have a party in your living room, and the cat is dancing along.
Well it seems to be clear, I miss Ben. A weekend trip to London was already being considered. Until Cinnaman saved the day by inviting him to play in the Verdieping during ADE. He’s not coming alone, with Hessle Audios other label member Pearson Sound and another very special guest they’re taking over Trouw’s basement. Counting down the days has already started a while ago, and my fingernails are shorter than ever before.
