This week´s AM/FM show is a recording of the second and last hour that I played on New Year´s Eve in Rome at Spazio 900 for the Cosmo Festival. What an incredible pleasure and honour it was for me to end the year 2015 and begin the year 2016 in beautiful Rome. My set started about 22:30 right after Ben Klock and I played till 1am, so right through midnight. The energy in Italy is always on maximum level, but this NYE added an even more special vibe. I wasn't really sure what to do at midnight, somehow I didn't really think about it before (shame on my lazy ass). So when midnight came closer I chose to throw in the amazing remix by Tale Of Us for Radio Slave´s "Don't stop, no sleep", knowing it has that nice break and if I timed it right, it would be happening right at 0:00. But somehow I thought it needs to be a bit more special, so I thought of a countdown, but didn't have one, then I thought of numbers… and "Numbers" by Kraftwerk came to mind, so I quickly tried to mix that in, which didn't really work in the beginning as you might notice on the recording. But I managed to fix it, so this was how that "mix" came together. Someone also gave me a mobile phone with a countdown on it, in case you wanna watch it on video, Fra909 filmed that bit: https://www.facebook.com/Fra909Tv/videos/931765546861081/
Fun fact on the side: The first kick-drum of 2016 came from Italian producers (Tale Of Us) in Rome… sounds like a good Omen for 2016 in Italy. Here you have the final hour - or to be precise, the final 76 minutes of the set. Hope you enjoy!
