You shot me so I shoot you

Osunlade on the decks

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.

This guy was hilarious – it looks here like he’s hitting a glass door
Fake glass drunk man
you can tell by her look that she wants something or that something’s wrong
The request

you can tell by her smile that she’s having fun
Dancing
this guy was hitting the cowbell really nicely; almost like it was part of the records

Last talk

6AM last talk

“Johnny cash was a bad mother fucker” – Snoop Doggy Dog

And I heard, as it were, the noise of thunder: One of the four beasts saying: “Come and see.” And I saw. And behold, a white horse.
There’s a man goin’ ’round takin’ names. An’ he decides who to free and who to blame. Everybody won’t be treated all the same. There’ll be a golden ladder reaching down. When the man comes around.

The hairs on your arm will stand up. At the terror in each sip and in each sup. For you partake of that last offered cup, Or disappear into the potter’s ground. When the man comes around.

Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers. One hundred million angels singin’. Multitudes are marching to the big kettle drum. Voices callin’, voices cryin’. Some are born an’ some are dyin’. It’s Alpha’s and Omega’s Kingdom come.

And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree. The virgins are all trimming their wicks. The whirlwind is in the thorn tree. It’s hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

Till Armageddon, no Shalam, no Shalom. Then the father hen will call his chickens home. The wise men will bow down before the throne. And at his feet they’ll cast their golden crown. When the man comes around.

Whoever is unjust, let him be unjust still. Whoever is righteous, let him be righteous still. Whoever is filthy, let him be filthy still. Listen to the words long written down, When the man comes around.

Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers. One hundred million angels singin’. Multitudes are marchin’ to the big kettle drum. Voices callin’, voices cryin’. Some are born an’ some are dyin’. It’s Alpha’s and Omega’s Kingdom come.

And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree. The virgins are all trimming their wicks. The whirlwind is in the thorn tree. It’s hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

In measured hundredweight and penny pound. When the man comes around.

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts, And I looked and behold: a pale horse. And his name, that sat on him, was Death. And Hell followed with him.
