A remix a did a while back of Alicia Keys great song "Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart". It's not chip, but weird and good.

Back home from Blip 09

Big thanks to everyone involved, organizers, artists, audience and reality shapers – I had a fantastic time! It was really good seeing all good old friends again, as well as meeting new people or people I've only talked to online before.

For those of you who missed the CONDOM show, it may be of some comfort knowing that a live recording EP will be released on 8bitpeoples in early 2010. In the meantime, there are some videos floating around.

Blip Festival 2009

Blip 09

The (partial) line-up for Blip Festival 2009 has been announced! Make sure to buy your flights, trains, buses now – and of course get the festival pass!

And no, my name is not on the line-up, however I will be performing a collaborative live set with Covox on the Official Blip 09 After Party. COVOX + RANDOM = CONDOM!

This is most likely a once in a life time chance to see CONDOM perform. To get tickets to the after party, please help funding Blip Festival via Kickstarter.
