Dear Readers,
Back in December I was announcing that BiP_HOp had been nominated by  
Qwartz Awards In Electronic Music in the categories "Best  
compilation" (BiP_HOp Generation 8) & "Best song" (Same Actor)
I was asking you to support and vote for us

Over the WE took place the Qwartz ceremony and to my great surprise  
BiP_HOp Generation v.8 has been Qwartz-awarded best compilation in 2006
According to the organisers we won because their jury loved the  
record but most of everything because a large amount of people click- 
voted for us, so allow me to THANK those of you who did

Staubgold was Qwartz-awarded best label in 2006 which pleased me as I  
consider it to be an amazing brand
Synch (Greece) + Nuits Sonores (Lyon) got Qwartz-awarded best  
festivals in 2006, and again that is a much deserved distinction

On Thursday I shared stage with Leafcutter John, Marsen Juhls... Also  
played over the WE Si-cut.db, Markus Detmer from Staubgold, FM3...  
and several others...
So as you could imagine that was a pleasant WE in Paris
Hav a nice week


PS: for those who might have forgotten...
