Joris Delacroix - She

I've started being really active on couchsurfing recently. For those of you who don't know, this is about helping out others by offering them free sleeping surfaces for a night or two. I find it an extremely good way to meet new people and to get to know different cultures.
You briefly talk online and agree on the terms and extent of the visit, and then after a short while, you'll find yourself greeting them at your door - or stepping into someone's life, if you're a guest.

To crown my outstandingly great summer, I thought I'd give this a go and see if I enjoy sharing my living space with almost complete strangers from time to time.
Over the past week, I've met many new faces thanks to this opportunity, and for some odd reason, I've mainly hosted German people. As I think back, I'm not sure if I was ever exposed to them before so closely, and I must say I enjoyed every single moment. Easy going, interesting and fun folks, to whom I could relate in many ways.

Great laughs, talks and exchange of culture and experience. To get the most out of it, we were listening to Spotify's suggestions to electronic music related to Berlin nights. Mostly in the smooth progressive-house and minimal genres, as they can provide a quite nice, non-intrusive background noise.

On one of these nights, my ears caught this tune, and it ended up as a candidate for one of my new mixes instantly.
