Best of 2008

Posted by by hendrik dacquin on 02 Jan at 07:07 PM

We begin 2009 traditionally with the Great Greatest Hits of 2008 brought to you by Studiomuscle.

It’s the records we spun the most at studiomuscle headquarters, a place where magic sometimes happens.

2008 has been the year of big personal changes for all portables. Buying houses, refurbishing them, raising children and for some portables more and well still more and more children is a daunting task. This resulted in a rescheduling of our agendas. We decided to focus our attention on one portables’ task at the time. We slowed down the shows, the movies, the new website and the blog and focused on the new record (oh and also some heavy drinking). This miraculously worked (especially the drinking)!

The new record is almost finished and it’s sharp and fresh.

Any resolutions for 2009? Well we’ll probably be still busy with the kids, chess and the things grown-ups do. Did I just say grown-up? The new website is nearly finished. The record is scheduled for this year (tentative title: “Steve Jobs rules the recording industry. Now what?”). So 2009 will be cool and sweet. Let’s hope that’s true for most people.

Alice Coltrane, Goliath Bird Eater, Kemialliset Ystavat, Valerio Cosi, Om, Selda, Aqua Nebula Oscillator, Alkerdeel,Magik Markers, Trad Grass och stenar,  Witchcraft, polvo and Jack Rose should be in it as well. Yes, yes 2008 has been a fab year. Thanks!
