November, 16th, a windowless dressing room in the catacombs of the Bremen concert hall ÖVB Arena, where everything seems to be coloured in beige, the faux leather couches and even the bizarre table-arrangement of a plastic agave. Next door Morten Harket is practising scales; A-ha will appear on stage in this sold out arena in one and a half hours. Keyboarder and co-songwriter Magne Furuholmen (57) is using the occasion to promote his current solo record “White X-Mas Lies”. It’s near the end of the first part of A-ha’s ongoing world tour and he seems a bit tired, but answers all questions with a friendly attentiveness.
Klaus Blatter has recently announced that he will be performing at the legendary venue Berghain Club in Berlin on December 4th, shortly followed by another live show in London on December 19th, at Corsica Studios, Elephant & Castle.

Thomas Passon is a German techno artist who sings in his native language. This shouldn’t however pose a problem to non-German speakers, as his techno rhythms and production are as much a reason to love his music as being able to understand the lyrics. Passon’s latest single, ‘Los’, is the first from his debut album, ‘Illusion’.
With his take on the 1943 Nat King Cole standard, ‘Straighten Up And Fly Right’, Jeff Goldblum And The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra have today released the latest track from their upcoming album, ‘The Capitol Studios Sessions’. The new single features vocals by Irish singer songwriter Imelda May, as well as German Jazz musician, Till Brönner on trumpet.
German Tech-House artist, Thomas Gold, certainly has the Midas touch when it comes to hit tracks, his Miami Dance Anthem ‘Sing2Me’, released on Axwell’s Axtone imprint, became a Beatport Number 1. Now he’s hoping to emulate this success, with his latest track, ‘Saints & Sinners’, featuring M. BRONX, released via Armada Music.
