Whenever Osunlade is in town, I know I am not going to sleep much –
On the 26th of December 2009 he was playing at Djoon all night long. After chilling in the studio all afternoon, I had a raclette @ Greg’s house, and then arrived at the club around 01:30. It felt weird going back to that club, because it had been such a long time, and because I have so many memories there. In fact it felt a little different, mainly because of the DJ booth aspect – It is a real booth now ! The sound system also sounded quite tight and not as loud as it used to be (I mean badly loud). The people seemed to be slightly different too.
It felt good to see the Parisians House Mafiosi Lionel Marciano and Franck Roger, crazy folks and heads of Real Tone Records.
We were all hangin out by the booth and got to hear some classics like “thousand finger man” or “gypsy woman”; the people seemed to have as much fun as us. I was taking pictures and being careful to the smooth mixes of Osunlade. Had Perrier all night long and went back home at 07:00 AM tired and happy.
Next day, we met and walked in the city, just letting ourselves be surprised by all the gorgeous things and scenes that Paris has to offer. Paris is a bit like a painting sometimes, good to watch but not much interaction. Perfect for shy photographers like me.
Here is the photographic diary of Osunlade’s visit.
Please make sure you check his latest album, “Rebirth” that is one of the most sincere and deep expressions of his music to this day.
