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

Reach for the beach

I know your holidays have not quite started yet and you’ll have to wait a little longer until you can lounge, sloth-like, on a beach. If you no longer stand the wait, then the rooftop of Parkhaus West is certainly less than a flight...

Add to favourit  Concert: City in the summer
 
If the idea of venturing into a hot, dark gig to get your musical fix doesn’t appeal to you as summer shines on outside, then Stadtsommer is here to save the day, or rather your evening. Six bands, with styles ranging from folk to electronica, will be playing live over the next couple of weekends in cool outdoor locations around town, and all are free. Tonight, experimental rock band Gletscher plays outside Helsinki. I'm also looking forward to seeing musical futurist Bruno Spoerri and Crew play in the courtyard of Restaurant Riethalle and the folk of Mantel & Kantelinen at Platzspitz
Thursday 9 pm, Gletscher, outside Helsinki, Thur - Sat (24th-26th Jul & 31st Jul-1st Aug), various times & locations
 
Add to favourit  Eating: Table tour
 
The Tour de France will be finishing this Sunday, and while riding 200km a day, often up and down mountains, clad in lycra is clearly some people’s idea of fun, I much prefer the Tour de France that Kulturmarkt are offering. This Friday you can take a culinary tour of various regions of France, with the chance to eat Forest Snails, Bouillabaisse, Coq au Bordeaux and Tarte Tatin. The only question will be, do you exert yourself with a bike ride to the French feast or take the tram. Either way, lycra will be optional. To reserve, you can email restaurant@kulturmarkt.ch or call 044 454 1015.
Friday 6.30pm, Kulturmarkt, CHF 35 per person
 
Add to favourit  Party: Alt dj
 
A couple of years ago alt-J released their debut album, An Awesome Wave, which was full of folky electronica, dubstep rhythms, vocal harmonies and tunes that could get a festival field singing along. With their new album due for release soon, they’ve been invited to dj at the Mad Katz Sommerparty in Exil on Saturday night. If the mix of influences shown by the music they make is anything to go by (their new single samples Miley Cyrus), this should be an evening full of surprises.
Saturday 11 pm, Exil
 
Add to favourit  Exhibition: Battle cry
 
During the Bosnian War, Sarajevo became a city under siege. In fact, the assault lasted from April 1992 until February 1996, the longest on any capital city in modern warfare. And yet despite the horrors taking place on the streets, below ground in the cellars and underground bars a resistance of sorts was taking place as bands and artists performed. In the exhibition called Rock ‘n’ War in Sarajevo - Rock gigs under the siege of Sarajevo at Photobastei, photographer Milomir Kovacevic Strasni will show his photos of this chaotic scene for the first time and be on site to discuss his experiences. The evening will finish with music from Balkanekspress.
Saturday 7 pm, Photobastei
 
Add to favourit  Concert: California dreaming
 
If you could capture, in sound, the feeling of cruising along a deserted Californian highway in a white open-top Cadillac as the warm breeze blows back your hair and the sun glints off your Ray-Bans, then it would be something like listening to a Jonathan Wilson album. He’ll be bringing his soulful folk-rock grooving to Bogen F on Tuesday. If you end up running away from home to become a ‘child of the sun’ after the concert, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Tuesday 9 pm, Bogen F

Add to favourit  Eating: As hot as it gets

I love getting restaurant tips from you. Let’s see if you also get tempted: «At Thai Sun Garden you find the hostess herself in the kitchen, preparing a large selection of authentic, wonderful dishes at a reasonable price. The duck is tender, the veggies crunchy and the curry as hot as you like it. Every time it feels like visiting a neighbourly Thai couple for dinner. It’s a bit hidden but that adds even more to its charm.» You’ll find the venue right next to tram stop Tierspital (tram 7 or 9) exit Berninastrasse/ Winterthurerstrasse). Best to call ahead to make sure the restaurant is open.
Thai Sun Garden, Winterthurerstrasse 281, 8057 Zürich, 043 538 71 37

For the fifth time, the LoRa dj marathon takes place right before Streetparade. What's new: The quirky city radio leaves its home and wanders to various locations. The music will be as diverse as ever and also the locations couldn’t vary more: ABS, Hive, Gonzo, Daniel H., Helsinki, Blaues Haus, Klubi, Palestine Grill, Kern Bar, Nordbrücke, Zitrone, Stall 6 and of course Boschbar. It’s worth to catch a beat, even better, stop by. You’ll find the programme here.

24/7 on 97.5 MHz and www.lora.ch

 
Add to favourit  Shopping tip: New design
 

Where there used to be a hat maker, a gallery and a piano store, the two sisters Jessica and Josie found new home for their label Kinsfolk. They use the beautiful location as a showroom and workshop for their jewellery and scarf collection. So far, they don’t have fixed opening hours but during regular working hours you’ll certainly find someone there who is happy that you came.
Kinsfolk Studio, Dubsstrasse 26, 8003 Zürich

 
Add to favourit   Shopping tip: More than honey
 

Do you know Wabe 3? They sell tasty honey collected from the rooftops of Zurich. And on my Roof Terrace Day they offered guided tours to various hives. Together with Madame Pompon they recently opened a small shop called Honig Kuchen. Here you'll find, next to their own products, various British and American baking items and stylish accessories for your teatime. Like a brunch-set that comes with honey, candles, flour, cutting board and a honey spoon.
Honig Kuchen, Birmensdorferstrasse 109, Opening hours: Tuesday to Friday 11 am to 6 om, Saturday 10 am to 4 pm
