The key to understand the music – and to express that music can easily become better done with dance. What have been delivered over this weekend – and that have happened within the Vogue and Waacking genres. Delivered with this news flash at the first event – entitled Ball of Norway. All what I can tell taken from the analytical point of view is that this was an event that was an success – and it was a success that are bonded with a heavy load of confidence. So this is was a first – and truly not the last because it will cause fire. So the message is clear keep on keeping on to unfold like flowers!
Also in the midst of this are that the DJs located in Oslo, Norway needs to get their grip in to this scene. Only because this is dance culture – and history in terms of what actually happened in the clubs back in the 1960s throughout to today. It will grow more flesh on the bone – and more knowledge on this side of the spectrum. If that would happen the Urban movement as whole would be more united in the core of what the Kool Herc sentence means what are:
His/Hers Infinitive Power Helps Oppressed People!
All because with all elements gathered the more forceful it all will become. Excerpt of this are Vogue and Waacking are not underlined the culture hiphop, but are under the disco, funk and house music. As whole this are underlined one sociological and social term – urbanity. The ones that truly understand – and have understood that are the dancers who are also located in Oslo, Norway. So start by getting out of the box – and start to get into the cause of today there everything are quite on the contrary.
Are there an organization that understands this perfectly are the organization that hosted the truly wonderful spectacle – Ball of Norway with a panel talk. On the panel there were several persons within the Vogue category who shared their story from the beginning to the present time. They were the New York based dancers such as Archie Burnet – Grand father of the Legendary House of Ninja, Javier Ninja Overall father of the House of Ninja, Dashaun Wesley member of the settlement Vogue Evolution – as well as the Finland based Inxi Prodigy. A panel moderated by Danby Choi Subjekt’s editor in Chief. All of their greatness were shown during the Ball of Norway. So this was truly as they states in the DJ world: One for the books! So a grand round of a thankful applause to an always welcoming and warmhearted organization that have understood all of this which are the ever-going strong: Soul Sessions Oslo! You are too Swell, Soul Sessions Oslo! And the message is clear keep on fighting throughout the years to come! You are too fierce!

All do it sometimes, search for those vibes where it all began. Where it truly began and made the explosion of a lifetime! So in this case let’s go back to the time where that explosion came in an utterly un-explanatory way! One time there everything seemed bland and off course with no fun in the picture. In that timeframe I was a frequent flier at The Villa – and in a time there it were no Jaeger. Not at all! It was in a time there everything seemed really limited as of for now with a plethora of options to go for. All of this was placed in a venue that were Fugazi – a club that were transformed to Seeds that also encountered the same fate such as getting sentenced to shut down. What happened in total confusion I was met with this brilliantly DJ set by Christian Sol – on one of the uttermost important days in my entire life and really can be seen as the one that are a same procedure as last year day, the Music Day. This year was special I did not dress my self up in one of the annual traditions as in the Star Wars t shirt. This year I was dressed up in one of my favorite shirts – and had change with me. All this do not seem as important in terms music, but I do see this as a resemblance of change because from that moment on until now everything have changed. All have changed to the better so with that said I can say thank you to the DJ that saved my life that evening. Just because after it has been like an ever-going beach party on a hot day where sand grains have been placed under the feets, with a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other. All I can say to You Christian Sol: Thanks for the heat wave over the years! And of course there will be plentiful of hotter ones!
Well this is a mix that truly delivers an energy that goes on deep, deeper and more deeper from the first second. We are sure going in for one of the more progressive journeys because the temperature are lifted really early on, what makes wonder on the mind. Also a mix that fits the really energetic time we are all placed in with longer days. What suits the landscape of the mix perfectly just because with longer days the more mental we all become, what were vouched for by others.
The mix as whole are also very clean cut – and the mix are crafted to give the body an outrospective movement. On the other side the mix are as stated Immerse in diversity – there’s no wonder in that one because there are two heads into this one. The more peoples there are in a creation the more on accord the final production needs to be. All of this explains how thought out and how well the mix as whole are. The crafters behind this mix are a duo with the obscure – and truly wonderful name Porno Poltergeist. A name that truly shines all the way through this mix – because a poltergeist are a creature, ghost or spirit for that matters. So it fits with its all obscurity because all peoples wants to cause noise without being seen, what also fits with what this mix will do! All because this mix will hit the masses with its full frontal nudity! Also make the people strip – and to become completely naked in front of the internal noise they want to get mended! Oh yes it will! Oh yes!
This is not about the magazine Vogue and not about the track Vogue made by Madonna who clearly stole the essence. What are in the context are the lifestyle that gathered black men who are gay with less money under a roof. They were of all shapes and of all types. All of this existed merely from the 70s until now. Yass for progress! What this is in full frontal exclusivity are about is the expressionistic lifestyle, Vogueing! One lifestyle that have its home in a ballroom where there are a runway – and with peoples who acts their true self on that runway with disco or house music in the background. All of this are also parted up in these categories such as butch queen up in drag, school girl, admiral or a chief executive director. All of this are chosen after personal preferences. If they are feeling to be with each other in a group – it settles them to be a house. In that house there are always a person that can seen as the leader – or in this lifestyle a father. A father that really knows to be living this lifestyle – and life.
All of this have also been developed over the years in New York city – and captured the world with thunder and applause. Little by little it have caused growth, also in Oslo over the years. What was the natural destiny from the beginning to now – and in the present there is a first who lands the Midweek Suggestion:
Ball of Norway!
One spectacle for all kinds that are out and about in Oslo – and it sure have one of the uttermost prime venues in Oslo, Sentralen. A Convenience for all! Because there will be bodies that moves like lava on that runway – or strikes a pose also hot as lava! So if this seems so I have to go worthy the best tip for you is to dress less to impress! Indeed!

If you understand house you should also understand hiphop because they are opposites from each other, so there are no brainier in the cause of going on a stroll into the hiphop section once in a while. It can also give more flesh on the bone in terms of relevance to see the underground music as whole. Even better to see where the artists got the sound that brought their sound to be marked as classic. The Track of Today track is a track that still have a definitive heavy rotation by a lot of peoples on the soundsystem:
One track that really owns so much of the Kool Herc knowledge;
His/Hers Infinitive Powers Helps Oppressed Peoples just because that track have caused a whirlwind of inspiration for others to grasp for the same fortune. Like the generations after such as as Paperboys, Karpe Diem and Cezinando. The track of Today are aligned with the process of making a classic hiphop track that are sampling. If you lack knowledge of what sampling are the let this walk through help you out!
There are four groups in the classical music that makes an ensemble or a philharmonic orchestra. These ones are the woodwinds, the strings, the brass family and the percussion family. Within them there are more sections on hold – and the most important within the groups are Strings in terms of leadership. What can be sought as the most important is the Violin – and with the remark that the First Violin are always in charge. The first Violinist carries the melody – and carries the band as whole. What this has got to do with Tommy Tee is that he have understood the fact which are – if you going to make a classic you have to sample a classic. All of this have clearly been implemented in the creation of Takin Ova. Tommy Tee choice were Ständchen by Schubert – who clearly underlining the whole purpose of the track: I am making the stand I am a force to be reckoned with. He got his Award at last! So the destiny behind this track owns the same future as the one that got sampled.
Tommy Tee – Takin Ova.
Schubert – Ständchen. Jump to 02:35.
Hella day! Hella late! So here’s a little collection of music so the Flow In Your Work does not make you to completely fall off guard to the point of not making your head fall in total sleepiness on the keyboard. If that would happen for goodness sake make everything on the keyboard go on – enough to make you cause problems at work. If that have happened way to many times here is a little something something to make you to complete the ever-going stacks of papers located in your cubicle at work. Sort of a helper on the mood because you also feel shabby on the inside – and wish that you could stay the whole day in foster-care in your bed instead. With a phone and a foodora app installed so you can order in instead of making the walk of shame. Also with the mac on the chest so you can Netflix TV series all day long… All day Long!
Today there was a realization that during the course in this journey is that there has been so many unbelievable happenings – and to pull one thing out are just insane. There are strong beliefs that there will be embarked on some more because that is the uttermost truly, madly and deeply best way to go. So there are no less because the more this is going on the more whole as a person will I be. More!
So let ut just dig into one of the experience that is more in the present time and still are being in the process that can be described as the one that can be settled as the best one, one that just changed my life completely. What was on the day there the destination were changed from Munich to Berlin – whilst being on that freighter there was only one venue that virtually ventured thoroughly over and over in my mind which were Berghain. One venue that are stated to be excruciatingly hard to get into – even with the right attire and right mindset. A venue that really looks utterly and completely dull from the outside that really do some exciting changes on the mind. It really reeks of it in other words. It truly does change the whole perspective and the mindset. It makes you want to fight through the struggles within to be fighting through the hours because leaving is never the option. Just because getting in are equally hard to make up the understandable decision that now is the time to leave. Some use five hours others last 24 hours. In addition it is also equally hard to get back to who you were before the entry. Just because when you enter it you just know why you got in. You are not like everybody else – you are chosen to represent their trademark of being underground with the respect in hand. So if you are standing in the line not knowing why you stand there you should just leave, if you are there because the world wide web tells stories then you should leave as well. If you know why you are standing in the line knowing why you may stay. This place is not for everybody. In my place there was no thought this is not a party – it merely were a seance there the feelings was about to get the healing they needed. So I agreed upon their settlements. What will be revealed in what was mended in those hours are in the right place to kiss and tell – I have had too much confusion over the years in what I want to do. It has been quite messy – unstructured and about the things I just could not give up. In all of this there sure has been a suffocating emotional state there everything seemed dark and to the point there was no fun. What was clearly given up in the midst of this was the dancer in me that have portrayed an important role ever since the age of eight – a role that have been rough to carry and I will not see myself as a failure in. It feels as though that I won the biggest battle of my life. So the outlook right now is that I am starting to get more happier, more content and fulfilled when going towards what I may not will the best in which are the art of mixing two records – together.
Going deeper into this fact when witnessing people unfold like flowers on the dance floor – and leave Berghain with a thank you gave such an exhilarating inspiration to emerge this path. So it feels like I am ready to follow the grandest, raddest and all consuming grand call in my life within the music. A call that has transformed me from being an insecure nobody to be a brave somebody whilst being humble – because I left being utterly completely humble. Also more included and collected – so if you think like this is just an ordinary club evening – because music can change life even if it takes four, 10 or 24 hours. It does. So the message is brutally true:
If You Are In For The Kick Of The Party You Have To Step Down And Rebuild Yourself!
