Ladies and Gentleman
2012 is very close to being history and I'd like to look back on some personal highlights.
The year kicked off with an invitation to play at the NRJ Music Awards at Gotha in Cannes alongside Lmfao and Bob Sinclair, followed by gigs in Dubai & London, two amazing spots to spin.
For the winter season I played at Courchevel in France and beautiful St. Moritz. At that time, my track 'Burning Fuse' was released on S2 Records, a great label.
It was exciting to work on Cruz TV and release a couple of new videos. For my Birthday in April I played at the fancy club L'Arc in Paris – what a night that was!
A huge highlight for me was the entire line of Unashamed Luxury nights we had at Club Kaufleuten in Zurich. It's the best crowd I got to play for this year, simply incredible.
The summer season started with Openairs such as Touch the Air, Motion, Gampel and the legendary Street Parade, where I played the Swiss House Station which was a blast.
In July, I went to Tel Aviv for 3 shows and got acquainted with a great city, it’s beautiful scenery and crazy nightlife. During that trip I released my first Bootleg by Asaf Avidan – Reckoning Song / One Day. I was very happy to see it receiving international support, and the fact that DJ Tiesto played it twice in his Clublife Podcast was phenomenal, a big honor for me.
Besides many other cool international gigs in August, I played an opening set at Pool Beach in Cannes, where wild day parties are held! In September, I played at Freestyle.ch while the snowboarders were doing their courageous rides, that was a fun experience as well. In October, we released the 'Story of Summer 2012' video. I thank my filmer Tony Mola for the great work.
Last month, I released my latest track called 'Cans' which Avicii played in his Le7els Podcast, that made me extremely happy. I also got nominated at the Swiss Nightlife Awards and after the public voting already landed on Top 3, in January the winner will be announced.
The above written highlights are just a few of the many incredible moments I was blessed to experience this year. I got to know many cool people, made new friends, traveled a lot and got to play so many fantastic gigs!
I want to thank all of you for your support in 2012. It means a lot to me! Special thanks go out to my Family, my Clique and all the people who brought so much good energy, with special thanks to Alex Ruf.
I wish you all a great transition into a happy and healthy 2013 and hope it will be your best year yet!
