And so… we arrive at Headphone Commute mix #199, exclusively put together by Cologne based (Germany) Kevin Gabriel, a member of jvbr, recording under his moniker ‘k”. Perhaps too early for the actual celebration of two hundred mixes, yet nevertheless a milestone of its own, this podcast signifies yet another transition in time and space. Tomorrow I set off on one of my longest and most exciting adventures, covering South East Asia countries: Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia in about a month’s time. This trip will give me an opportunity to step back from the every day grind, including the sometimes compulsive consumption of music, and enter a completely different world where life goes on as is. As I travel, I will spend plenty of time listening to this particular mix, and I invite you to join me on my journey, at least through this sonic companionship.
