Telekom Electronic Beats

Counting with Daniel Jones

Counting with Daniel Jones As you might have guessed, the Berlin Electronic Beats online office is a cradle for expats of various origins. Take Daniel Jones for instance: our multi-faceted music editor is a New York club kid by heart and still happy to drag his astral body through the dark underground of Neukölln’s youth culture if he’s not spending quality time at home cooking, blog-writing or party-planning. If you want to learn more about the special occultism of our very own Mr. Jones, go read his Gucci Goth blog, join one of his PURGE events or just follow the numbers below.

1 memorable line in a film or song:
“Heyyy” – Steel Magnolias

2 decisions I regret:
Sneaking into Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion
Buying that awful chair (what the heck…why would I sit in that)

3 people that should collaborate:
Aaliyah & Jhonn Balance (resurrect for cool + unnatural collab), remixes by Nero’s Day At Disneyland

4 things I haven’t done yet:
Get slimed (20% slime coverage doesn’t count, 40% minimum)
Be a responsible father and husband

5 things I used to believe:
It’s possible to die.
Crowley wasn’t just making it up as he went along, slowly spinning out bigger and more impenetrable texts as he became sucked into a lifestyle that rewarded bullshitting and abstract thought, and therefore I myself can’t achieve a similar decadent and hedonistic lifestyle. Lol.
There’s no good mexican places in Berlin (there’s two, actually.)
Everyone likes pizza (still believe this deep down because the alternative seems fairly fucked up)
“It’s not just a phase, MOM.”

6 hours ago…
I was explaining to someone that I wear crosses and yin yangs not because I’m spiritual, but because I like tumblr.

7 days I barely remember:
Anything in 2001

After 8 p.m. …
I’m thirsty…this questionnare is taking too long…i just want to ride bIKE…

My 9 lives …

10 years since 9/11 …
*sage nod of wisdom as I turn my hat backwards and pedal off into the distance*
