Monthly Archives: June 2011

-finally got the chance to post this schedule of most of the concerts + DJ-sets I’m involved in this year. Several of them have happened already of course, but better late than never. The ‘Beethoven9 Orchestral Remix’ got a better response than I could of dreamed for in Nantes & Angers this week- more coming on that soon – I promise.
