I spent a few days at my parents place - celebrating christmas with the family - i accidently dropped a burning cigarette at my old room. it fell out of the ash tray - when i picked it up again, i saw the toy mouse right next to the buring cigarette. that was when i realized how much i still love that toy.

12. What’s next for Joney?
There´s the third saturate!records compilation to be released in january 2013 and the list of musicians, who contributed tunes is somehow my personal “best-of beat producers”. An illowhead 12” half transparent-grey Vinyl with a poster and stickers is going to be released via my favourite all independent label from my hometown hamburg: Audiolith! It´s the most friendly and conscious people who run that, it´s going to be the first cooperation between my “headquarter” saturate!records and audiolith - i´m ridiculously happy about this thing going to happen. Oh and i want to make up a live-set - using some real drums or triggered drums in 2013. And i want to sound like WaGaWaGa (insane producer)
