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.

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

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

I saw the sea-gulls heading south, a sign that winter is lurking around the corner. Time for me to take off and get some heat into my bones before the dark months begin. I’ll be gone for two weeks but don’t worry, I’ll be back!
Take care and give my love to the city, Ron

Today marks the start of the international literary festival «Zürich liest'14» (Reading Zurich). But I couldn’t find any events in English. Therefore ignore it and head to Rote Fabrik instead, where Bonaparte present their latest album. Instead of words, get a fill of music and you'll still stay in the literary world: their concert will transport you to «Alice in Wonderland». Techno tunes combined with costumes, everything is possible when circus director Jundt leads his band to the stage like his namesake monarch. The difference, they are not French, Switzerland is already a democracy and everyone attending is a winner. 
Thursday 8.30 pm, Rote Fabrik

 
Add to favourit  Exhibition: Boring buildings
 

«Switzerland‘s architecture is boring», was the title of an article in NZZ three years ago. It hit Zurich like a shot of a starter’s gun and became the cause to start a work exhibition with Swiss architects. This year «Architektur14» goes into its third round and shows more than 80 innovative architects. Let me know, if you still believe that this country’s architecture scene is boring after visiting the fair. Entry 18 francs
Friday to Sunday, 11 am to 10 pm, Maag Halle

Add to favourit  Eating: Little garden
 

Piccolo Giardino is not a new kid on the block. But I just realized again last weekend, what a great location it is. It’s situated perfectly for a drink or a bite to eat if your night’s plan includes Langstrasse. It’s just around the corner but devoid of the crude crowds. Instead it comes with an unpretentious atmosphere, a tasty menu and friendly staff. I like their covered beer garden where you can still sit outside, to keep warm, I suggest grog or a carajillo - and ask for a blanket. They show all games by FCZ live as well as the qualifying games for the European Cup that include the Swiss National Team. If you prefer music to sports, head there on the first Saturday of the month.
Piccolo Giardino, Schöneggplatz 9, 8004. Opening hours: Monday to Thursday 11 am - 0.30 am, Friday 11 am - 2.30 am, Saturday 2 pm - 2.30 am, Sunday 2 pm - 11.30 pm

 
Add to favourit  Good to know: Balboa Garage
 

You know that I like to discover hidden gems around town, away from the well-trodden paths. On one of my excursions I came across Balboa Garage, a gym that specialises in functional training. Balboa has three bases: I trained with Angel at Ghetto Gym just behind Kino Roland, was taught by Andrea at Amboss Rampe and I’m curious to see what their latest venue at Steinfels Areal will look like when it opens at the beginning of 2015. What makes Balboa special? The venues are located, where I usually go out, so it’s nice to do something healthy there for a change. Personally, I find gyms very soulless and avoid them at any cost, so the friendly and social atmosphere came as the biggest surprise. From the start I felt like I’m training with a group of friends. The schedule changes slightly each week, so you get a chance to try out various work-outs form Calisthenics and Planet Venus to Kettlebells to Cross Yoga. Subscriptions are 150 francs per month and you can join as many lessons as you like. If you fancy having a look at their Amboss Rampe venue, drop in tonight as they host the finissage of Paul Sieber's sculpture exhibition.

How do you see yourself? That’s the question photographer Scott Chasserot tried to answer with an experiment. First he took pictures of the participants. Second he created more than fifty versions of the original. Then he showed the versions to the participants and scanned their brain activities. In this way he found out which version perceived the most positive reaction. And this is what it looks like.
