Munich party report

Les Princes Chameaux

The Lovers

To celebrate the 9th anniversary of Munich’s monthly French party Tour de France, a big show was held in three spaces at Muffathalle, with Les Princes Chameaux, The Lovers and yours truly (aka DJ Natashka) as special guest DJ. It was a super evening!

The party went on until at least 5 am, as I left around 4:30 and visitor DJ Martin Hemmel of Atomic Cafe fame who came by had just been handed a cocktail and told to stay some more. The other DJs, including Christian and Thomas of the Tour de France, played hits off the four Tour de France compilations in the huge room and I heard resident DJs cranking out some Daft Punk at some point.

Three things never cease to amaze me every time I come to Munich for French music parties: the place is packed with Germans, and not homesick French people. The crowd is quite young, not older people getting all nostalgic. And the music is very different that what I play in Amsterdam, which made my set that much different. I had people thank me, which is always welcome!

Rumour intermezzo

Besides possibly working alongside Belgian DJ Eddy de Clercq later this year in Amsterdam, I’m hoping to bring French boogaloo master Minimatic back to Amsterdam, as well as Thomas Bohnet of Tour de France and Martin Hemmel of the French Cuts compilation. It goes without saying that I get to work with DJ Guuzbourg and more with Cowboy & Henk this year as well. And then I also plan to DJ more regularly at Amsterdam North’s Cafe Noorderlicht and more in foreign countries, if you’ll have me!

Podcast No. 32 is in the pipeline, and I need to wait till this cold-like feeling goes away (my voice is affected by it) and the neighbours make less noise to record it!

As well, I’d like to invite you all to follow me on Twitter were I’ve been for a long time, and Twitter about French music, business and whatever.

Talk to you soon!
