DJ Zhao Summer Tour 2012


Belgrade, Serbia, Mikser Festival

second time dropping Juju-Juke: after an awesome set by awesome tapes people were ready to go crazy.  160bpm Afro-Bass Explosion, 500 screaming Serbs, mosh-pit at 2am.

Passau Germany – Hakuna Matata Festival
super fun times with The Pipelines and DalaDala at this dope festival in a small town close to Munich deep in the heart of Bavaria.  for 4 days city center was filled with awesome motherland culture, music, and food.  the Neo Nazis were scared and didn’t dare show up!  
After Party:

America…  how i love love love and hate you so much!!!   was strange to be back after being away for 5 years…  open, intelligent and fun people, so much excitement, so much to see hear do, so much good food… and also advertising overload and intense class division which breeds a fundamental and ubiquitous societal tension of a kind which Germany has no idea…  i guess besides failure of the social contract this friction can also lead to good music :)
Boston:
Chicago:
Philladelphia
NYC:
DC (more photos coming):

so this was totally awesome sauce. so many great new friends, awesome vibes, and dope nights. (and amazing food!) so much fun, positivity and inspiration…bigup Dutty Arts, Sonic Diaspora, Anthology of Booty, Music Ecology, and all the crews and individuals who made it possible.next year it will be your turn West Coast! brrrrrrraaaap!
