The reason why a lot of (cool) photos on this blog didn’t get in the book

Some of you don’t know that it has a lot to do with quality (and permission). If you have a rather small or medium scan of a photo, it is not enough to print in a book. Many people don’t have a better quality version of their old photos. 

I also had to come to compromise concerning the photos that ended up in the book — there are some in it that I wouldn’t have put into it myself, but you’ve got to collaborate.

THE MAIN BOOK LAUNCH IN BERLIN!

What a blast! you def. missed out on some great music and an oppurtunity to grab a copy of the book! All books that were brought to sell got sold! 

Thankyou so much for the ones that showed up. Liste Noire rocked and the DJs Darrin (Psyche), Hamish (Sexbeat) and Alex (In Trance 95) played sweet combinations of classics and songs we haven’t heard in a while! 

And who knows that we’ll ever organise a regular party with this kind of music again in Berlin… — we’ll see. Let’s first get the book to everyone out there!
