Hello Jose how are you and what have you been up to recently?

Hi guys, I´ve been great! Can´t really complain compared to what I am seen around me lately. It´s a bitch not been free as I am used to, of course, but honestly this break has been good to me. Had to step out of my confort zone, had to find other ways to keep on with the hustle and also some time to relax. Although, can’t wait for this shit to be over and get back to business as usual. 🙂

You live in Madrid. How would you describe the situation there at the moment?

Right now it´s total chaos. We just had one of the biggest snowfalls in Madrid´s history and the city was not prepared for this. Most of the streets are collapsed, a lot of cars just abandoned, no fresh food on the supermarket… Looks really crazy! Of course adding this up to Covid, I am really intrigued by how this is going to end. Looks bad for the near future but I am hopeful for the summer. Fingers crossed!

Most people still live pretty isolated in lockdown. How do you cope with this and would you like to share anything you discovered during these times like music, books, movies, food or whatever?

I have a great relationship with my neighbors and have found a little community here in my area during the lockdown so my isolation has been real chill. We have had food and pot all the time, so again I really can’t complain. As for new discovers, I really have to recommend this Diesel sativa, really good for creativity! Sadly I haven’t read much lately but I really liked ZeroZeroZero, its a short tv show written by Roberto Saviano, the same guy who did Gomorra. Very realistic and shows how fucked up that world is. 

What annoys you or has pissed you off lately?

I think the thing I´ve hated the most in recent times is this passion people have for judging everybody that has grown through the pandemic. Everybody thinks they are police man or that they have the rightful truth of life. Fuck that.

What excites you besides music?

Sex and poker all the way!
