Friday music.

Last weekend I celebrated my birthday at the 2013 Pitch Festival. Acts I've seen: Fat Freddy's Drop, Flume, Django Django, Mykki Blanco, James Blake, Jon Hopkins, Hudson Mohawke, Full Crate (Silent Disco), Baauer, Bonobo, CHVRCHES, Trentemøller, Lukid, Jamie Lidell, Disclosure, Cashmere Cat and Lapalux. James Blake marked the best performance for me, but that was one of the few where I was at start to finish (Full video of the set above). The programming was so tight, we had to run from one act to the other almost constantly in order to catch a glimpse of both. Overall the atmosphere wasn't as good as previous years, it was very busy and there were a lot younger people present as well. What would've brought these kids to this Bacchusfest of Sodom and Gomorra, I wonder...

Where June was my favourite new releases month of the year, somehow, new releases are scarce this week.  

Friday music.

The day has come! This weekend, for the third year in a row I'll be at the electronic live music festival Pitch in Amsterdam. Acts like How to Dress Well, Mykki Blanco, James Blake, Jon Hopkins, Hudson Mohawke, Ghostpoet, CHVRCHES, Lapalux, Disclosure and more, promising a good festival. I've been looking forward to it for about a year now and it's where I'll be celebrating my birthday (again). Added bonus: we'll be spending the night on a boat B&B on the canals! YAY!
