may 2014, milan / total freedom for hunter magazine, styling: anna carraro, special thanks: marcelo burlon
Personal note: I love going to the clubs and I’ve been doing it for a while now. Of course much happened from the first time I went out from the party and it was already daytime - evolution of mobile technologies, introduction of stupid laws like not smoking in the venues and undoubtedly my age changed too. All these make it always more difficult to enjoy it as back in the days and dance as if nobody was looking. There is one thing though that keeps the hope of carefree clubbing alive and… it doesn’t even have a name, but Ashland Mines a.k.a. Total Freedom represents it to the fullest. Not only he represents it but also, to me, he was one of its ‘inventors’ or at least one of the first people I’ve heard it playing. When somebody asks me what kind of music it is, I’m never able answer, apart from the fact that I had never heard it before and that it’s exciting. To be honest just the fact that it doesn’t have a name makes it good. That is why I booked my ticket to Berlin for the Janus closing party at Chester’s with Total Freedom, homies from Primitive Art, Lotic (and many more) just to discover couple weeks before this event that on the day of my departure Ashland also plays in Milan at ‘our party’ in a small club with shitty sound and just friends inside. There was no other way then to change the flight. What happened in Milan was real and sometimes secretly I still go trough the photos from that Thursday night. Somehow the day after we managed with Anna, and thanks to Marcelo, to make this shoot happen and.. it went well. On Saturday I flew to Berlin and when at 6.a.m of Sunday I was leaving Chester’s, which btw was one my of my favourite clubs I’ve ever been to, I was just sorry I don’t do drugs and physically couldn’t make it any more. And yes, it was daytime.
