Yesterday I was an eyewitness to the senseless terrorist attack on innocent victims along Las Ramblas in the beautiful city of Barcelona which I love very much. I am still in shock and trying to process what I saw. Sadly such attacks have become a โ€œnew normalโ€ in our society. That being said, we cannot allow these cowardly acts of violence to disrupt our daily lives, stripping away our freedoms, because that is precisely what their goal is. Therefore, after careful consideration and discussion with my friends, colleagues and internal team, I have decided NOT to cancel my gig tonight at @thelightoffbarcelona in Barcelona.

We WILL NOT give into fear but will unite through music and the celebration of friendship. I will also be donating my entire fee to a charity that will care for the victims and relatives of this tragedy. I hope that it helps in some way.

The first club I ever played in Greece way back in the '90s was @cavoparadisoclub as @deepdish. Those early years at this iconic venue were legendary and some of my most treasured gig memories. I haven't played there much over the past decade for various reasons so it was great to be back and this time alongside my good friend @richiehawtin. I tend to do a lot of b2b's these days but none are as musically exciting - or as FUN - as the ones Rich and I do; constantly challenging and pushing each other (and the technology!) to the edge of our sonic landscape, creating a combined, punchy, textured, hypnotic groove. And to have these moments with someone who I've always considered a mentor and huge source of inspiration is the best part of all. So thank you Lorenzo @blendathens, Stathis, all at Cavo and of course the incredible energy we had from you guys ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ @playdifferently #MODEL1 #click2click #adecadeofdubfire #Mykonos Pics by @johnny_panopoulos

#tbt to last week at @paradiseprds in Ibiza ๐Ÿ™Œ Great to play the main room alongside @harvardbass @silvieloto @carlolio and @dense_and_pika (who have just done an unreal remix of "RibCage" ๐Ÿ‘Š). Thank you to @nahyates and of course @jamiejonesmusic for having me and looking forward to more Paradise madness in NYC, Toronto and Amsterdam over the next couple of months! #Ibiza

That moment when @carlolio lays down the funk bomb and I'm simply at a loss for words, making that nasty face ๐Ÿ˜– ๐Ÿ‘‹ ๐Ÿ˜‚ Or you can just caption this! @paradiseprds #Ibiza

Lunch (with views!) in #Barcelona with some of my fave people ๐Ÿ˜‰ @terraza_martinez

Hope you're having a chill Sunday my friendsโ˜บ๏ธ Oh and since many of you have asked, my tank top is now available๐Ÿ˜‰ Just head to the Merch section of dubfire.com

Just when you feel like you've experienced it all, along comes @candomo with a beautifully intimate, authentic, classic #Ibiza experience; forward-thinking touches to the signature ingredients which we've all come to love on this magical island. I was too busy eating to photograph all of the dishes we enjoyed but rest assured they were all fire! Thank you to chef @paucandomoibiza and the rest of the gang for warmly welcoming us with smiles and open arms and taking the time to sit and taste real, pure #sake hand-carried all the way over from Japan by @katsumiyasaka @tedorigawa6 and of course @richiehawtin ๐Ÿ™ Besides @lagranjaibiza and @zelarestaurants, my fave current restaurant in #Ibiza! Thank you @herrglass for the recommendation ๐Ÿ˜‰ @entersake

A much needed pause today, hanging in #Formentera with friends @richiehawtin @lk11111 @ntcola, Maria as well as next generation #sake brewers @katsumiyasaka and @tedorigawa6 ๐Ÿถ @besobeach

Full throttle chunky funky techno vibes yesterday at @brunchlisboa ๐Ÿ™Œ Incredible weather backed by an incredible crowd! Thank you as always #Lisbon and the entire @brunchbcn and @dgtlfestival gang.

#tbt to a few weeks ago in #Barcelona. Always a pleasure to be back in the company of the amazing chef @pacomendezv, tasting one surprise after another ๐Ÿ˜› Elevated Mexican cuisine with classic, authentic flavors and ingredients; pictured is but a small sampling of what we had! @albert.adria.acosta

Another epic, full on nite with my good friend @solomun @pachaofficial ๐Ÿ™Œ One of the highlights of my year to build up with a deeper set, in an intimate setting, and slowly watch as things ramp up throughout the nite, culminating in probably the most fun - and most fluid - time we've had playing b2b! Thank you to the entire Diynamic gang and the man himself for inviting me๐Ÿ™ Also big thanks to @tokuri.de for the fuel ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ˜ˆ #Sake #Ibiza #MODEL1 #adecadeofdubfire
