Just like a helium filled jelly, you may find it hard to nail Dutch dj/producer Martyn down. His djing style is chameleon–like in its ability to blend into the many genres that he plays, and ends up calling his own. He may have started as part of the drum ‘n’ bass scene but now dubstep, house, electro and even a few heart quickening pulses of rave are in his musical arsenal. He plays at Rote Fabrik tonight. 
Thursday 8.30 pm, Rote Fabrik

London has always been the UK’s alpha-dog when it comes to dance music and clubbing but more recently Glasgow based dance label Numbers have been scrapping for a fight to dislodge the old dog, and they just might be succeeding. At Hive on Friday, SubClub host a Numbers label night with three of the best from the label. Redinho will be playing his warped beats live, while djs Jackmaster (winner of breakout dj, 2010) and Deadboy will prove why Braveheart isn’t the only thing the English need to be afraid of.
Friday  11 pm, Hive

 
 
Add to favourit  Seattle lovers
 
What does Nirvana have in common with hip hop? Seattle, the home of both Kurt Cobain and Shabazz Palaces! Creating complex tracks with elements of jazz, world music and house, their visionary sound also appeals not just to hip hop lovers but also to friends of electronic music. This Saturday, they come to Stall 6, visiting Switzerland for the first time.
Saturday 11 pm, Stall 6
 
 
Add to favourit  Spice up your life
 
Do your taste buds need a change? Do you have a delicate palate? For one week from Saturday, Mourice Mikhail - known for tasteful combinations mixed from his own stock of 200 flavours - will create you an individual mix at Markthalle (at the stall of The Pie Shop). You’ll receive a barcode of your personal spice at the end, so you’re able to get it again afterwards.  Special salts and peppers are available too, so there is nothing to stop you having your own hot and spicy weekend, if you know what I mean.
Saturday 8 am to 8 pm, Markthalle im Viadukt

Filmstelle, is essentially Zurich university’s film club and every semester the members choose a series of films based around a common theme. This semester the theme is The British Isles. Every Tuesday, for the next few months, they will be showing some fantastic films but the first is the Shane Meadows directed, This is England. Set in the early 80’s, a time of great social upheaval in England, the film follows 12-year old Shaun as he looks for comfort in the welcoming, but dangerous, embrace of a gang of skinheads.
Tuesday 8 pm, Filmstelle, Universitätsstrasse 6, 8092

 
 
Add to favourit   Last days of February
 

With all the cutting edge genres of music that float around the Zurich clubs and bars, sometimes all I crave is a big fat slice of sweet indie-pop to munch on. I know it may not satisfy all my needs but it tastes damn good while it’s going down. So, Swedish band Last Days of April will be my tasty treat next Tuesday at Hafenkneipe. Imagine the Lemonheads with a little less golden sunshine in the mix and you’ll be getting close to their sound.
Tuesday 8 pm, Hafenkneipe

You don’t get many options at Talacker . Daily, they serve one Asian menu with or without meat (always 24 / 19 francs). If you don’t like what’s on offer you can order the weekly special or choose the Udon soup. Taste is great, service friendly and quick, the sofas very comfortable but the noise level is quite high. Talacker is the place for urbanites who like quick Asian food, to consume it in a stylish ambience and appreciate a strong espresso after the meal. Take away is also possible. Talacker, Zürich
Talacker 41, 8001 Zurich

If we are talking about the future, here is the winning Airdrop Irrigation Project by the Australian designer Edward Linnacre. The project is based on the fact that the air, even in deserts, always contains a certain moisture content and therefore, water. The Airdrop irrigation device collects this water and transfers it the ground for farming. Learn more

Add to favourit  Concert: Jingle jungle
 
Jungle originally came to prominence last year in a shroud of mystery. The UK duo, known only as J and T, would perform live at London’s underground venues deep in shadow and their increasingly viral video’s featured troops of breakdancers or synchronised roller-skaters rather than the band themselves. This was never going to last of course, and although Jungle’s cover is now somewhat blown, it’s the music that really matters. If you want party tunes with a funky soul, music that is both strikingly original yet still familiar, they’ll be playing at Komplex Klub tonight.
Thursday 8 pm, Komplex Klub

Add to favourit  Exhibition: Design for life
 
In a world of mass production and consumption it’s always refreshing to find something that’s a little more unique and individual, which was one of the driving forces behind Blickfang’s inception. This weekend at Kongresshaus, Blickfang will once again bring designers and unique products from all over the world including fashion, jewellery, accessories and interior design together under one roof. They’ll also have fashion shows throughout the weekend as well as a special ‘locals’ section focusing on designers from Zurich.
Friday to Sunday from 11 am, Kongresshaus

Add to favourit  Party: Bad babies
 
It’s good to know that the Zurich party label Les Enfants Terribles have finally matured into their own name by celebrating their 3rd anniversary this weekend at Frieda’s Büxe. As is often the case they’ve managed to lure in a few international djs including Jun Akimoto, who spends his time playing deep, dubby techno at Fuse clubs in London and Kyoto, while Dogukan Ires is usually based at the crossroads of East and West, Istanbul. Along with these two, there’ll also be a great selection of local djs to make this a party worth remembering. It’s good to know that age hasn’t made these enfants any less terrible.
Friday 11 pm, Frieda’s Büxe
 
Add to favourit  Festival: Micro electro
 
If you’ve been to Bar Rossi before you’ll know it’s not the largest bar in the world, which makes the fact that they’re putting on an electronic music festival this Saturday all the more amazing, and in a nod to self-awareness they’re calling it the Liveset Micro-Festival. The doors open at 9 pm, with the artists playing live electronica into the early hours of Sunday morning. Dj Christian von Andern will be filling in the gaps and the whole event is completely free to get into.
Saturday 9 pm, Bar Rossi
 
Add to favourit  Reading: All things, all at once
 
One of the main themes of the 20th Century seemed to be about reaching for the future; trying to move faster, communicate faster, gather information faster. Well, now the future has arrived in a stream of non-stop news, information and gossip and many people feel a little disorientated. The past and future don’t seem as important as what’s happening right now. Douglass Rushkoff’s book Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now explores this subject in an entertaining and thought-provoking way and will be discussed at Corner College’s Theory Tuesday evening. Some excerpts of the book can be downloaded, so that you can better participate in the discussion. All in English.
Tuesday 8 pm, Corner College, Kochstrasse 1, 8004

Add to favourit  Eating: The colour of the sky
 

Maybe you already found the pretty new shop Azzurro at Weinbergstrasse. If not, there is no excuse now not to visit. Their theme is «pure pleasure» and as soon as you enter the shop you’ll understand why. The home-made soups, salads and sandwiches made my stomach rumble as soon as I entered the venue. This, as well as special lemonades and tapas is all for take-away between 11 am and 2 pm from Monday to Friday. On the right hand side you find special wines and liqueurs, antipasti, olive oil, honey and much more savoury and sweet treats. And if you’re hosting a party, they also offer a catering service. Pleasure all around.
Azzurro, Weinbergstrasse 95, 8006. Opening hours: Monday to Friday 9 am - 6.30 pm, Saturday 10 am - 3 pm

 
Add to favourit   Good to know: What’s going on in Swiss politics
 

At the end of the month, another national election is coming up. This time there are three topics I believe might be of interest to you. 1. Ecopop: What sounds like a new music style is an initiative that wants to limit net immigration to 0.2% of the population growth in Switzerland. Which is similar to a freeze. This is too drastic for almost all parties (even SVP), so let’s hope for a strong no. 2. New tram line in Zurich: Tram 8 could extend its line over Hardbrücke connecting Kreis 4 and 5 if the public says yes to the budget. 3. Drunk tank: Zurich has a drunk tank, where the police are allowed to put you if you’re drunk (even when not driving). You’ll have to pick up the costs of 1,700 francs for the one night. This price tag is the basis for the ongoing discussion and the public’s vote will decide now whether to continue with the drunk tank or not. More: As usual swissinfo.ch offers background information in English and also explains the rest of the topics the Swiss will vote on on Sunday.

Add to favourit  Shopping tip: Pretty Woman
 

Let’s stick to Kreis 6 this week. Right next to the Leonhard-Steps you find the organic beauty depot Pretty & Pure. A lovingly decorated venue with a large selection of natural cosmetic products that have never been near an animal for testing or contain animal products. A bit like a vegan beauty parlour. Their spa offers treatments and make-up and their lines are also for men and available in their online shop as well.
Pretty & Pure, Weinbergstrasse 25, 8006. Opening hours: Tuesday to Friday 11 am - 6.30 pm, Saturday 11 am - 4 pm

 
Add to favourit  Web tip: Take a break
 

Everyone needs a break from time to time. If smoking is not an option and if you shot all the bubbles in your Bubbleshooter-Game, try Oh h1. The name is weirder than the game, which is addictive and great to play while listening to music or a boring conversation. Just try it yourself. It works similar to Takuzu or Binairo and the introduction explains all questions you might have.
