Last week Ian Martin and Kaname K (one half of Trinitron) came to pay us a visit. We were hanging out in Ljubljana, Piran, Sentjernej, Kostanjevica and Venice. Lots of Bonanzas and Monday Clubs that stretched out beyond Mondays. The highlight of our 'tour' was of course Fashion Crisis 3rd Anniversary party at Menza Pri Koritu which tried to bring some of Koenji's magic to the Slovenian audience. Eight unconventional DJ's played music that many people never heard before. Kaname K served us with some Japanese girly pop and rock like Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Yamaguchi Momoe, Ian played his favorite post punk bands like Zibanchinka and Praha Depart along with the newest beats by Tokyo's electro godfather Nakata Yasutaka, Saturna went on all psychadelic in her Barbarella costume dancing to her retro/ East-German electro. Svemir Mango, the new hot DJ team, were bombing the place with swag and zef and just didn't let you stay still. Their mixture of bounce, Baltimore, Bollywood and exotic electronica was irresistible. My personal highlight of the evening was Bravo Urska who shocked the place with her finest selection of Korean Pop. At the first tune the people in the front (K-pop fans) went crazy since this was probably the first time in history K pop was played in Slovenian clubs (let me know if I'm wrong) and the rest of the crowd was left standing with their mouths open and eyes confused- “ I like it, but- am I allowed to?” Eventually everybody was dancing and enjoying something they were not completely sure of what it was:) After Bravo Urska my alter DJ ego Shanti Priya came out and I played some of the latest hits from Bollywood. It made me dangerously happy, after all, Bollywood IS my favorite music:) The last one on stage was Shampoo Guy. That's Miha's new stage persona that plays 'showinist' bounce. Whatever that is- his performance was epic. So, the party we threw was awesome and super trashy, thanks to everyone who contributed in any way- by DJ-ing, dancing, vomiting, looking fabulous, being funny... Thanks also to Lea, who provided us with glamorous shoes- I'll write about her in another blog entry.
Next day we started to work on a new project- owning things and places. It resulted in a series of photos of Ian with his arm wide spread above different panoramas. A true conquerer:)
Our last Monday Club together was on Ester Sunday in Venice. We found an Italian restaurant run by Chinese, decorated with fake old fashioned Italian paintings. As close to Saizeriya as it gets, right?
Saying good bye was sad, but since we'll see each other in two months again, I guess I'll survive:) Anyway, we failed to shoot a video for Trinitron again- we wanted to do it in Varanasi, then in Ljubljana, then in Italy. But we had too much to talk about so we forgot. Maybe Tokyo!
