Okay! Okay! You might have left your cubicle at work, but #LavaOfTheWeek will be in your rescue anyway. Because you know:
Residences Of The Weekend is a new column at the now a days quite extensive universe of HOUSE IS LIKE LAVA. Residences Of The Weekend is a shout of where the best venues to go out to in terms of bookings and perhaps cities to travel to!
Monday again….! A day where your are in for a sleepy head work day. A day there you feel utterly to the bone vacuumed, because every memory you created during the weekend was too good. A day where you are a little broken reasoning the fact that you heard some good tunes that the DJ played.
From our first encounter to now I have always respected Ivaylo – a cheering and loving man!
What a ruddy blue, blue, blue Monday! This has got to be the “best” of them all if I really can recall it correctly.
The temperature on the day before the Nicky Siano night at Jaeger is at stake high! Almost on the verge to burst! So in before hand we all can take a mr. Miyagi «wax on – wax off» wisdom in our hands by start to listen to his tracks and mixes, just to understand what lies in under the hours of his set. Tonight we are in luck by this mix from his earliest residency: The Gallery! Short info around Nicky Siano residency and who visited The Gallery: The Gallery was born in a decade where the club with its most important part the DJ culture began to grow. The Gallery gathered many, and in the crowd where the past away Larry Levan and Frankie Knuckles – who got really inspired by his DJ setup, he played with three turntables at the same time. The Gallery became clearly famous – and it did not stop there he was also a resident at one most infamous and legendary concepts all time; Studio 54!
This was truly an wax on – wax off lesson told in a poetical way!
Wait for more!
Music bloggers are an extremely rare “race” in Norway – and when applying for accreditation for a festival that concerns music then I start thinking: is not it a bit rude to not be included to get the accreditation? Anyone who knows me through the music has seen the burning commitment I have just for the music. It’s my life! This here does not make sense – when the musician who may not make money on their music need the press – whether it is eminent or not that eminent on the coverage. This topic right here I spoke with a Danish under a course hosted by The Wire: Adventures In Modern Music that he does also looks upon the tendencies in Denmark – that no one writes about music anymore. Especially when magazines going in to write less about the music. They all have thrown their pencils into become more of a fashion magazine with a music section. Yes I know that I was a fashion blogger over a few years and I liked what I did, but something happened during these years. I started to work with clothes in a field that craves balance. Too much, and everything can go wrong in how to be sincere and lose interest. No now I must stop – and think ultimately No way! Norway! This here is too cowardly! Who thinks out side the box now a days?
It seems to be like a #Throwback Thursday and that Thursday is all about Hercules and Love Affair! They have recently released a the FADER x Hercules and love affair mix – and it is a long time since they caught my attention. Just because that they caught that attention so here is three plus that mix (recently shared on HOUSE IS LIKE LAVA facebook page) for you on a accidental Thursday! For you that wanted a bigger crawl back in history, do not hesitate we will go further soon! Enjoy!
To dance it feels like disappearing into nothing to be reborn new again while in the moment get the therapy for the soul. This is how the new DANCE MUSIC THERAPY EP from Trulz & Robin (Cymasonic/Cymawax) feels like based upon the statements in this video.
On the other contrary “DANCE MUSIC THERAPY” have nevertheless been on repeat on the digital track source Beatport because there is no copy on the table to go on. So we will not disappear all the way through! So with the video statements at hand – and the thought is going towards head:
In the beginning there was soil and the soil made a reaction to the next thing – and then it emerged into being elevated into being a full grown person. A move started to blossom out of that person into moods, various rhythms and grooves. It became a therapeutic travel from soil to a fully grown tree that shared love.
When this thought is placed into our head and with all of those that vouches for this vinyl it will be a great tribute to our record collection.

It will sell to the ones that are sort of in balance with themselves, simplistic with the quirky twist and the ones that likes music with a “certain” commercial feel persons.

Recently there was a published list of mandatory documentaries to watch – and there could be a reminiscent out take of what is important and not that important. This is a totally impossible task to do because all of it is guidelines and resources for a house music fanatic. Also on the other side when you are sent on a journey there is a must that you should know what you are getting into. In the total the video brings out all of the most important go to guys, labels and the ones the sat the sound of Chicago that is still present in time. It is a must that this is a popcorn time moment because Chicago is an international ratio city! Like the heart of this music!
