Partysites are a dime a dozen. And the most ones are bad, filled with meaningless, cramped and boring images. Luckily there is Warda. Who has been there once, will come back! Warda is here to serve you the best events, tips and party images of Vienna for showing you the best nights out. Founded by Eugen Prosquill in 2007 it all started by fun and having free entries during his schooldays. Over the time it has grown to a serious business including a great team. “For me a good party is when the right people come to the right place, then a fun atmosphere is guaranteed!” Eugen tells us.” And we can definitely see this f.e. on the last Gossip” Party”! Where everybody wants to be Hollywood and Lady Gaga or Karl Lagerfeld. To the question where he sees himself in a few years he tells us ”I will go foward and do what is fun and continue the things I do well. Elsewhere I let myself be surprised about the future and will continue to live in the moment”. Yeah! So flip trough the images und feel like you are in Hollywood and plan your next party with Warda.
All artists deserve thanks for their stunning performances and of course BIG thanks belongs to Lunchmeat team for the realization of such a great parties. We wish a lot of success in future and looking forward to next Lunchmeat festivals!
And the rest of you, come on & join the anniversary party of Lunchmeat!

So enjoy this selection of raw, cool, expressive and honest images of all the cool party-people out there.

Women are really one of the most beautiful creatures under the sun – apart from a few exceptions of course. And there seems an absolutely beauty overkill at the Kazantip Festival which is an electronic dance music festival in the Ukraine. Moscow based photographer Alexander Tikhomirov filmed rad 8 minutes of the lively hustle and bustle and we all should be happy now.
As we already informed you, Dimensions is an underground electronic music festival, set on the sun soaked Adriatic coastline in the awesome, inspiring surroundings of Fort Punta Christo, in Pula – Croatia. You can join this cool festival for a week of sunshine holiday or just for a long party weekend :-)
KVIFF, in other words Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. The event with quite long and succesful tradition. Like almost every year, it’s not only about movies, but also about partying. Of course, as a festival attendee you will have lots options for partying. Although, we chosed one of the most interesting party from the whole festival program. Party which is under the wings of Education parties team (yes, that guys who brough Kuedo, Mount Kimbie or Jamie Woods to Prague!). For this time, guys asked to come&play two very good UK producers – Space Dimension Controller (R&S records) and XXXY (Orca records). You can look forward to the night full of great house, bass and uk funky rhythms!

Venue: Aeroport club (Divadelni namesti 243/1, Karlovy Vary, Czech republic)
Thomas Unterberger has some pretty cool shots on his website. It seems that most of the time he is on club-tour throughout Vienna to shoot some party images – and maybe this is where he found out about the idea of shooting reality instead of posed images. “Party is over” is a series which features people who are the unknown models in his shootings. And yeah – needless to say we are very very happy we haven´t found ourselves in one of those images.
Wer liebt sie nicht – die lauen Sommer und Partynächte. Endlich kann man wieder getrost anziehen was man will – kein stundenlanges schichtenweises Einpacken mehr und natürlich kein fröstelndes Warten mehr auf die U-Bahn. Die Sonne mit ihren warmen Temperaturen feiert jetzt endlich ihr Comeback und mit ihr auch unsere Partylaune.
Vorbei der monatelange Winterschlaf und seine gemütlichen Abende die man meistens auf der warmen Couch mit Popcorn und zu vielen Filmen verbracht hat. Grund genug für uns- wie jedes Jahr – mal wieder etwas Platz im schon etwas unübersichtlichen Kleiderkasten zu schaffen. Es wird ausgemistet, anprobiert und abgewägt. Vieles kann man ja mixen, neues mit Altem und auch sonst gilt natürlich: Klamotten werden längst nicht mehr einfach so weggeschmissen. Klarerweise mal aus ethischen Gründen und auch einfach weil man ja Weiß, dass vieles (oder alles) irgendwann mal wiederkommt und es gilt ja sowieso: Man trägt was man will und wie man will. Nicht zuletzt werden ja auch Flohmärkte und Second Hand Veranstaltungen immer beliebter – und das zu Recht. Da gibt es richtig tolle Möglichkeiten seine „alten“ Sachen loszuwerden und vielleicht aus dem Geld wieder etwas Neues und Passenderes zu finden. Wir haben ein bisschen im Netz gestöbert um vielleicht für das nächste Wochenende ein passendes neues schickes Party Outfit zu finden. Wer den glänzenden Auftritt liebt und ein richtiger Eyecatcher sein will – der hat es wirklich nicht schwer. Wir haben aber zur Zeit eher die Lust an dem Klassiker und dem ewig Zeitlosen: das kleine Schwarze. Mit den richtigen Accessoires ist es für uns immer noch eines der schicksten und auch eines der gemütlichsten Outfits. Schließlich wollen wir ja auch richtig tanzen. Yeah! Da haben wir zuerst mal ein schickes Guess-Kleid auf Fashion24.de gefunden. Das figurbetonte Bandeau-Kleid hebt sich dank der formschön drapierten Stoffbahnen auf der Front vorteilhaft ab. Wer es dann lieber noch einen Tick glamouröser mag: Ein simples aber wunderschönes oui Fransenkleid aus Leder. So wird jede Nacht zum Tag!
So, dear party friends, do you already know how you will celebrate the arrival of spring? What about on a boat while great deep house music is being played all night long? Like it? I thought so. Let`s see some details :-)
Co-owner of Mild Pitch label, a member of Ribn project and long-time succesfull producer Manuel Tur is going to be the next special guest of one of Prague finest deep house parties – Just Like That. Support artists will be as usual Lukas Micka (Visky recordings) and Pat Heart. As a regular attendee of Just Like That parties, I can promise you won`t regret if you join us :-) Magic atmosphere of Bukanyr houseboat in combination with nice deep house beats… and I think that´s enough. Just come.
M a n u e l T u r
Born and raised in the German city of Essen, Tur released his first house record at the age of 16 on UK label Mada Music. Since then he’s appeared on labels like Delusions of Grandeur and Jimpster’s Freerange records, who will be releasing Swans Reflecting Elephants (his upcoming album!). He also runs his own imprint, Mild Pitch, together with Dplay and Langenberg, his partner in the duo Ribn. While Tur’s debut album from 2009 was decidedly downtempo, Swans Reflecting Elephants is more dance floor-oriented, albeit with lots of atmosphere and occasional ambient passages. Vocal appearances come from Blakkat, AKA Mark Bell (not to be confused with Mark Bell of LFO).

date: 23rd March, start 10pm
entry: free! (come early, capacity of boat is limited!)

Can you imagine a world without music? “Not really, can you?“ says José Miguel aka Voodoo from Lisbon. Well, we cannot either. What´s better than music that makes you get up and dance and fills you with happiness and energy or makes you drift away…
I have tuned into his online radio show Snow Globe quite a few times already, where he plays many great and and also unreleased, exclusive tracks from worldwide artists, and I can tell you- I was dancing in my room! We are happy to have José for an interview and while reading it – please enjoy the very special #6 C-Heads Podcast by Voodoo.
Some general, basic things – who are you, where do you come from and what’s your main profession/job?
So, my name is José Miguel, I’m from Lisbon and have no idea where I’m going. My main activity is related to media and content production, and I have been working as a freelancer for the last couple of years.
How did you get into music – and at what age? What is the story behind? And do you have any related education to it?
I’m into music since I was old enough to understand it, I guess… There was a maestro and a opera singer in my family, but I don’t think it had a direct influence on me. Unfortunately, I had no musical education apart from what we learn in public school, so I don’t think there’s a story behind it. I was mainly into alternative sounds during the eighties, but when techno and club culture came up in the early Nineties I thought “this is it!”.
Did you ever do – let’s say – classical music or any other kind of music?
Nope, but I do enjoy jazz a lot.
Where does the name DJ Voodoo come from – and why did you choose it?
My grandmother was a wizard and a witch and… No, actually it was a nickname I had since many years before I started Djing, and it came from Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Chile”. When I began to spin records, people just put that on the flyers so I really didn’t choose a name. Voodoo wouldn’t be my choice, for sure :)
Techno Music – if you describe this music to somebody (who has never heard this kind of music) – what would you say?
Well, actually I don’t try to because I don’t think it’s possible. I see Techno as part of a culture, and being a very specific one- I believe there’s no way to really explain the whole thing. You only get it if you go there…
Is it important for you, if people like your work – or what they are saying about? Does it influence what you’re doing?
All the feedback I get is of the most importance, and I appreciate it the most, of course, but I try to follow my own instincts in every move.
Before a gig/event – are you nervous?
No! I just want to do it! I love it!
What has been your greatest success so far?
Everytime I play in front of an enthusiastic crowd that reacts to the music I feel complete as a DJ. Playing in the morning at the closing of Kubik Lisboa back in 2007 was in many ways a very special gig.
The music-scene in portugal… you play in different countries – is there a difference between the countries?
There are some, but the main one I think has to do with the size of the market. The club scene in Portugal is small, I feel that things are way stronger in other countries.
Yes. So do you think this will change in the nearer future? Or what should be done to increase the size of the market?
Well, as you can see everyday in the news, there’s a very harsh economic situation in Portugal, as well as many other european countries. The club scene and night life in general reflect that. I don’t think things will get better in the next 5 or 10 years, so I really don’t know how things will evolve.
You also travel a lot – do you enjoy it?
Yes, a lot in fact, expanding the horizon is healthy.
You already played a lot of times in Vienna, and you act at famous Flex Club once every year. What makes Vienna special?
The beautiful people and the very lively night scene, and of course, Naschmarkt and Schnitzel!
What can we expect from you in the next years? Is there any “master-plan”?
There is no “master-plan”, but I’m working on expanding my Snow globe concept to higher and different levels – it has been amazing so far – and of course, to play as much as possible with my techno set.
“Snow Globe” is a really cool project of you. Live Streaming from different places – like f.e. you already had a painter behind you, huge vidowalls and once you got a new haircut while playing your set! What is still in your mind what you want to do?
The next 3 or 4 programs are already planned, they will be even more out-of-the box shows, but surprise is a key element. Public sessions are the next step, I’m already in contact with some locations and artists to expand the streams to a wider concept next year. Tuesdays will never be boring again. Meanwhile, stay tuned for the xmas edition on December the 20th.
Is there any funny story behind we did NOT see in the video? Ej? ;)
Not really eheh, apart from the fact that once or twice I had no idea of what the concept would be just 12 hours before the stream. On one occasion I had a small crowd dancing behind the camera ;) and on another one I was really ill, with high fevers.
You did a very special Podcast for us. What´s the story behind?
The main concept was not to do “just” a mix, so I researched a lot of ambient sounds from Lisbon to add flavour to the piece, f.e. I made a loop out of the music a blind guy makes on the Lisbon subway since years, he is already famous; or the flute of the “amolador” (grinder) – these guys go around town with a bike that has a mechanism to sharpen scissors and knives. They play this flute to call the costumers, and some people say they bring the rain with them. I also added a lot of samples(more than 30 songs on the tracklist, in whole or just bits), I re-edited or looped some of them, so it’s the first time I make a work that involves more than just mixing tracks. Voices from myself and friends also are included, and I produced my first music ever to include here, so that makes this podcast special, at least for me.
Can you imagine a world without music?
Not really, can you?
5 things you cannot live without?
Music, social life, the sea, the people that are closest to me and coffee!
The best life lesson so far was?
We should always reach for what we really want.
Last question – What’s the best place to be in Portugal to go out?
Lisbon, for sure, it’s a great city in many ways.
