Spending some of my halloween sunday catching up on soundcloud, loving this Mickey Smiley re-edit from Mr Johnny Miller, nice chilled tune on theme for the afternoon. Another fav after the jump is a mix from DJ Akira Ishi at the Worldwide Showcase in Tokyo, best thing is both are available to download for free :)

Summer Sonic Mountain Stage 2009

What an amazing weekend in an awesome country, Summer Sonic 2009 Japan was one of the best live experiences i’ve ever had! Truely humbling, the two shows with the Qemists in Tokyo & Osaka were what my childhood dreams were made of 10,000 strong crowds, speaker rigs and scaffolding to climb and gyrate on, huge video screens, dressing rooms next to uber stars, autograph signings, TV interviews…the list goes on and on.

RIP Lost stuff

This year touring with the Qemists has took me all over the place, we’ve played and partied quite hard, in so many cities & clubs it was inevitable that some of my possesions were gonna go walkabouts. This is just a small dedication to some of my favourite pieces no longer with us, well no longer with me some lucky f**kers found them…hope their being nice to my babies! (more…)

Eat, Pray, Love – Elizabeth Gilbert

Sams holiday read is ‘Eat, Pray, Love‘.
How true so much of it is…

On Soul Mates

Elizabeth
I think the reason its so hard for me to get over this guy is cause i believed he was my soulmate

Richard
He probably was, your problem is you don’t understand what that word means. People think your soul mate is the perfect fit and that’s what everyone wants but a true soulmate is a mirror.
The person who shows you everything that’s holding you back, the person that brings to you your own attention so you can change your life. A true soulmate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet cause they tear down your walls and smack you awake but to live with a soul mate forever, nah its too painful.
Soulmates they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you and then they leave and thank god for it, your problem is you just cant let this one go! Its over, his purpose was to shake you up, tear apart your ego show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light could get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you had to transform your life then introduce you to your spiritual master and beat it!
