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...
