My trip back home over the holidays got disrupted due to the drone activity at Gatwick, meaning that my flight got cancelled last minute and I had to scramble to find a flight out of London in time for Christmas that didn’t cost an arm and a leg.
Sadly, this also meant that my 8 day holiday turned into a 4.5 day manic visit, but I did my best to fill every minute with people I love and even though I didn’t get to spend as much time with them as I wanted to, at least I arrived home just in time to catch Santa ;)
I was invited to play back-to-back with Alberto at the graduation party for ESCP Europe in Paris this weekend. A bit of odd time to travel to Paris with the protests and riots, but the actual gig ended being beyond anything I could have imaged.
We played at a club called Yoyo by Palais de Tokyo to more than 800 people and it definitely goes up there as one of the best DJ nights I’ve had (alongside that time I played in Russia). We had so much fun and even though we had to play a lot more commercial music than what I am used to, it worked out well – I even managed to mix which is a rare occasion for anybody that has ever heard me play.
Despite the unrest during the rest of the days we managed to have a lovely time and it never fails to blow me away how many lovely people Alberto knows.
It was the 5th year in a row he played this night and with a tiny bit of luck, I hope I get invited back to play again next year.
