So does her collection of essentials share the importance of relationships to her music. MY ESSENTIALS 1. YOGA (PEACEYOGA, CHECK HERE):  Peaceyoga Berlin is one of my absolute essential in-order-to-stay-sane/basic-need-place to go to.

I love this place. 2. COMPUTER (APPLE, CHECK HERE): My whole musical identity is on that computer. Whenever I go out the house wondering if I really switched off the stove, it’s the only thing I am worried about. (Besides my plants.) 3. SHIRT (TRES RASCHE, CHECK HERE): That T-shirt just makes me feel good an powerful. Besides, the label is awesome. 4. BOOTS (DR. …

RBMA // AKEMI FUJIMORI

After she gathered further experience as a live performer and studio musician, touring with bands all around the world, she is now busy producing and performing as the electronic duo dismaze along with musician friend Léa Moreau. Their latest release and video for “Human Sense” is a beautiful invitation to experience Fujimori’s musical world. MY ESSENTIALS 1. KEYBOARD (DAVE SMITH INSTRUMENTS, BUY HERE):  I discovered that synth playing with La Féline a couple years ago, I now use it on stage and in the studio, for my music as well as with other artists, it’s become my faithful musical companion. 2. CAMERA (LOMOGRAPHY, BUY HERE): I love instant cameras because they’re all about the now. No retouching or picking the best picture, there’s just that moment you shot and it is what you get. These days I find this feeling very precious. At RBMA, I’ve made a portrait of every participant so that I’d always remember these great times. 3. CROSSWORDS (FIND AT YOUR SHOP): On tour, in the …

FILE 99 // MARLON HOFFSTADT

The Brand “Marlon Hoffstadt” stands for a lot of things but always promises fun and quality. The Berlin-based producer, DJ and musician is continuously challenging and re-inventing himself to widen his own musical horizon and discover new opportunities. After successfully running his first label “Retrograde Records”, he launched a new beautiful imprint called “Midnight Themes” last year to share a different, more matured “Marlon Hoffstadt” sound. But this is not where he stops – the empire expands and takes physical form when he starts a new party series called “Savour The Moment” – safe place to switch off your phone and focus on the music. This way, Hoffstadt actively encourage attendees to forget their virtual life and focus on the real-time experience on the dance floor. With high-quality flyer designs and clever merchandise, he does make it seem very easy to throw parties with such a strong concept and big international line-ups in the electronic music capital of Germany. Hoffstadt’s essentials reveal a key ingredient to his success: the effort to connect – with people and with himself.  In this fast-paced digital age, he reminds us to appreciate every personal relationship found through music …

FILE 72 // HEATHERED PEARLS

Heathered Pearls is Jakub Alexander, a highly talented but humble multitasker. Working as a producer, DJ, label co-founder, A&R and curator, one might wonder how many full-time jobs a single human can handle. Jakub found a way to do them all very successfully. He is now on tour with his old friend Tycho , who recently got nominated for a Grammy. Obviously, Jakub was involved with this project as well as the A&R at the Ghostly International, a label known for its quality, individuality and forward-thinking involvement in music and art. We visited his new home in Berlin and were impressed how the space resembled his personality and sound: tastefully curated with attention to every detail. As he is based in New York, Detroit and Berlin, his belongings seem to be stripped down to only the things he really cares about: his dog Theo, records, music gear, sneakers and the essentials he chose for this shoot. We like to believe that we found an important key to successful work life balance through a peek into Jakub’s life. 1. PERFUME (MAISON LOUIS MARIE, BUY HERE): There’s a …

1. PERFUME & TRAVEL CASE (BYREDO, BUY HERE): Currently using the Black Saffron perfume, but this handy little travel case can hold a number of Byredo scents. Smell is one of the most important senses we have and I feel more confident when I smell good. The travel set is awesome at home or on the go. 2. TSHIRT SERIES (ACID CAMP, BUY HERE): Running Acid Camp has been one of the most rewarding projects I’ve worked on. I’ve created over a dozen different Acid Camp shirts now. I love having something to commemorate each party and the t-shirts have been a perfect addition. 3. PORTABLE CHARGER (ANKER, BUY HERE): When I’m traveling this little battery pack has been the life-saver accessory. Being able to run around a city for 24 hours or more straight you’ll, without a doubt, need charge your phone along the way. I cannot travel without it. 4. PINS (ACID CAMP, DIG DEEPER & SUFFER THE RAVE): Nothing spruces up a leather or denim jacket like a lapel pin. Especially a pin that you or your friends have made. I collaborated with my …
