Music is the “Invisible Joy”

I am very happy to announce the release of “Invisible Joy” by the Polyversal Souls on Philophon Records, a band well known to me and i feel with their long awaited debut Longplayer, the Polyversal Souls are ready to take off and join the stars of the world music galaxy.
Featured guests include outright legends such as the Jungle Brothers’ MC Africa Baby Bam, Ethiopia’s Hailu Mergia and also a solid selection of hot newcomers from Ghana such as the music award winning griot Guy One, Ebo Taylor’s son Roy X and freedom poet Y-Bayani. All produced at the Berlin based Ru-Ting Clan Sound Lab by none other than Max Weissenfeldt of Whitefield Bros and Poets of Rhythm fame the resulting Album is a unique piece of global raw soul.

FREE BEER alert for south-central Berlin …

just a quick post to announce the first exciting thing on my new blog:

Alaska vegan-bar opening with big bäng and #FreeBeer!!! in Berlin south-sentral : Reuterstr. 85, Berlin-Neukölln, the free beer i believe will be consumed sometime shortly after 20hrs … #FirstComeFirstServed !!! i have afeeling there maybe some #tapas there too… http://heyevent.de/venue/1618047978429763

the foto is an anecdote i associate with free beers in neukölln … this was in the früperle bar sometime in 2009 for i think a double birthday of Miriam W. and someone i cant remember – another memory was a great live performance of the great manouche-gypsy-swing band the Shoeswing Stringers! – and i shall add i did play a lot of records that glorious night too …

Valentino-45.com finally goes online ….

hello! – here i am – where are you ? like my site already? no? ok – “spass beiseite” (humor aside) as we say here in germany

i am here to have a piece of the online pie and share, learn and link and yeah sell my philosophy…

i am primarily concerned with keeping the funk alive and having some fun here on my own site!
i live and work in berlin where i have engage in a variety of things including guiding people through town n pedicabs, rikshaws or biketaxi as we call them here, besiddes i have a soft spot for vinyl and music .. viniyl cause i also do a lot of collecting dj’ing and promoting of parties: for one there is the klunkerkranich where i curate a the program one sunday a month and the “deine mudda iss disco” party series at kaffee burger every second thursday. besides that i do a variety of gigs in and around town and host the funk freaks dj crew once a year here in berlin.

i will also be reporting on interesting developments on the musical side here which may be a record review or artist feature, or post some random stuff or even weird and funny stuff to help people broaden their horizon through objective insight and irony. i will also want to feature topics here which are social/worldview in nature … but more on that later…

for now thanks for having found me and shoot me some digital love or any kind of feedback: i reckon i can handle it 😉
