I have been working on the homepage a little and I hope you like it.
I had a busy year dealing with a lot different things. But finally I am sitting in the studio again and starting the recordings for a new Dimi & the acoustic leaves album.
In the meantime we maged to finish the electric project Nice D&D and we will be released it in early spring. All artwork is about to be ready and we will soon start with the video production.
The first snips of the sounds will be out very very soon!
Happy new year!
I hope you all had a blast!
We are still alive and starting to begin the recordings on the next album of Dimi & the acoustic leaves. The simple things have to carry on.

The NIce D&D project is nearly getting ready and I hope we can release the EP in early summer. You will soon have the chance to listen to some sounds....
Meanwhile the acoustic leaves are back in the studio jamming. Bruno is finally back on his drums and we will play a few little gigs.
Studio is moved. Some of us have moved. Good summer=busy summer. But we are still here and friday back on stage at the Evergrin Festival.....
At the moment we are not playing gigs as we are moving our little studio. But more gigs for the summer are planned and about to get announced!

At the moment I'm working together with Nice D on an electric project. After having so much fun creating new sounds together we decided to bring out an EP in the beginning of next year.
Very soon you can hear some sound samples. Check out more info under nice d&d!
Yes the album will be out later. We were just not too happy with the result of one song as all the others were sounding so great.
We will re-record the song and with everything the plan is to bring it out July/August.... But it's coming.....
Peter Mountainsurf feat. the Wicki Brothers won the Eiger Film Festival!
Speedflying at its best....
Your first chance to listen to some of the new sounds is here!!!
A little later you will hear and see here....
Thanks again for the nice gig at the Preso.... Felt like the good old times.
Some pics are on facebook and some more will be in the gallery soon.
Finally we are back! After a long period of recording and producing we will play our first live gig again. Back to the roots means back to good old Espresso Bar.
Unfortunately Roger can't join us as he is in Algeria but back to the roots means also back to acoustic.... See you sunday!
You got all the new years and christmas wishes already on facebook and so it was a bit quieter here.
Yesterday we did the last editing on the video and Mr Burns is doing the final mastering bits. But we want to have enough time to be really happy with the results and that's why the release will be a little later than planned.
It looks like it will become march.... But: Good things come to those who wait.
The pics from the video shoot last sunday are in the gallery now.
Thanks to everyone who turned up! A super big thank to the filmcrew of Yushi.... You rock!
The video to the song "What's going on" should be coming out in january.
Tomorrow night we will be filming the video of the song "What's going on". If you are around Switzerland and you wanna join then check out our facebook page to find out more.....
We have reached the final stage of the recordings. Now we began to master the sound which will take some more while. The goal is to come out with the album in autumn. Within the next weeks I will upload the first songs.....
There are a lot of new and old pictures in the gallery. I know there are still some pics from last year missing and no pictures so far this year but: They are on the way.....
We finished the recordings of the drums for "next stop Byron Bay". The new version is online under sounds.....
A big thank to Bruno for taking so much time with me in the studio!
I managed to reorganise the gallery. Not everything is online yet but I am working hard on it....
Under "sounds" you can see already what is a about to come.
As some songs still need some mixing you have to wait a little longer to hear the results.
Also I am still waiting for Roger to come back from his journey to record the bass on "farmergirl".
It might be a bit late but I wish you a happy new year and it comes together with a happy Easter!!!
I know there were no news for a really long time but the reason was clear: Recordings!
I am working hard to finish my songs in my little studio and it is coming good. I guess it will be just a few weeks until I will upload the first new tunes.
That is also why I divided the category "sounds" in two categories. The older stuff is still available under the subcategory "Demos 2010".
So stay tuned: The new sounds of Dimi are on its way...
The last days I have been sitting for hours to mix the recordings for "Next stop Byron Bay". But I think the time was worth sitting...
Check out the latest recording of an old song of mine called "Next stop Byron Bay" which I wrote a long time ago in Australia.
A big big thank goes to Mr. Burns (guitar) and Roger (bass) for the incredible input!!! Thanks for doing this stuff for me....
Here we go! The next song is online. Check out "One way street" under sounds. A acoustic demo version with a briliant second voice thanks to Carole!!!
I won`t be playing any gigs until the middle of next year as I want to concentrate on my recordings at the moment...
Believe it or not: I managed to finish the recordings of the demo "B for bullshit". Everything recorded and mixed in my little studio. I hope you enjoy the new tunes.
Big thanks to Roger who played the bass and Bruno who was playing the cuica and the cajon. I was playing everything else on this recording - even the keyboards which was pretty new for me... I hope you like it!
New recordings are on the way so check out the "sounds" more often. I promise there won`t be a long break until a new song is online.
On monday I will play with Bruno and Roger a little gig at the Balmers Tent in Interlaken. Come around and have some fun with us!
Again no news for a long time means I`ve been really busy.....
But the pics from the gigs this year should be online very soon. As well as the first recordings.......
Where is Burns? Somewhere in India. As we still don't have a sign of him we decided to cancel the band gig on the 6th of April.
BUT - I will play a little solo gig at the Espresso Bar on Sunday the 8th of April......
It has been a long time since I wrote the last news. Lots of things happened. Unfortunately I goot injured when I was paragliding. Now I am all good again but I had to snowboard a lot as the snow is unbelievable good this year.
The recordings are on hold as our guitar player decided to travel around the world for a while. At the moment he is in India. I hope he gets some discount.
Next Sunday will be the first open mic session in the Preso bar this season and it looks like it should become a funny night.
I am about to finish some acoustic recordings which will be soon available as free download under sounds.
Good for now! I promise to keep you more updated.......
Back to the roots! On the 22nd of october I will play a solo unplugged gig at the Avocado Bar at Grindelwald. As it is the last night before Alex will leave to OZ for a while it should become a pretty nasty night. A good reason to show up and raise one or two glasses with us.....
We finally made the decission to record the new songs on our own. This is one of the reasons why we didn't perform a lot of shows at the moment. But as we propably should be ready with it in february we will play gigs again in spring....
Yes, yes, yes - we are useless! Check for yourself the gallery and believe it or not: Some of the Saanen pictures are online.
And if you think you can't surf in Switzerland: You are wrong! The proof is also in the gallery.
YES - I did it! I got my paragliding license and now I am officially allowed to fly when and wherever I want. If you see the dimi-music wing in the air then better watch your head....
It's unbelievable: We managed to get more pictures online.....
Check them out in the gallery!

I hope you all had a blast on new years eve.
We wish you all the best for the coming year!
We are working hard on our new programm and plans for the new year. The recordings take a bit longer but they are coming good. As well we are planning to come to Germany for a few days. The first gigs should be confirmed in february.
After a long period our drummer Tom has decided to make a change. He is taking part in some other projects and won't have that much time anymore. I like to thank Tom for his help within the last years and he will always remain a member of the crew!
Herewith we present you our new drummer Simu (anothers Swiss guy from the Bernese Oberland) who joins the band. Find a picture of him in the gallery.
As we have to practice and record there won't be any shows until february next year. But then it will be big!!!! Plus you will hear some new tunes on the page by the end of this year.
Unfortunately I had to cancel the gig in Cologne as I injured myself. I am really sorry but we are already organizing the gigs for next year and for sure we will also come to Cologne....
We are very sorry for the delay. The pictures from our gig at the Strassenfest Grindelwald are in the gallery now.
GREAT! The song "just playing" was played already on backstage radio. Thanks a lot!
Check it out on mx3....You will find the link to the page in our linklist.
In the "pressroom" you can dowload all info about Dimi as a pdf now. There is a german, english and a french version (oui oui) available.
If you are wondering that we are not playing a lot of gigs at the moment - the answer is pretty simple: We are still recording a lot of stuff but for sure we will play some more gigs this winter.
Maybe also a very good reason to come and see us on the 11th of august in Grindelwald...
Yes! We have been working hard. Especially Mr. Burns who was sitting and mixing while it was like 50 degrees in his studio.
Check it out under sounds and download "Jump into the ocean" for free. I guess the right tune for the summer!
I am pretty happy that a song of mine was chosen for an audiobook. Check out the link "zeitreisende surfer" in the linklist and have a listen....
Find some impressions from my Ireland and Portugal trip in the gallery now. While I was away the band was working on the demos. Soon we will present the fresh recorded stuff...
After I got stuck in Ireland I finally made my way through the vulcano ash to Portugal. I will upload some pics of both trips within the next days. Unfortunately there was a sound problem with "Jump into the ocean". The song will be on the page again a.s.a.p.!
Here we go: The demoversion of "Jump into the ocean" is online and ready to be downloaded. Have fun with it and spread the word....
Kennis pics are now online. Unfortunately there is a problem with the brightness in the gallery. I`m working on it and the problem should be solved pretty soon.
What a fantastic night yesterday. Thanks a lot for the great support - especially the grindelwald connection. Thumbs up for Tinu and the whole El Camino crew. There are already some pics in the gallery. Kennis pics will follow within the next days.
The link page is online. Check it out and don`t forget that we are playing tomorrow!!!
Another song is online. You will find a nice demoversion of "Rich" under sounds. The right sound for the summer if you want. Download the song for free!!!!! But don`t forget to tell your friends where you got it from.....
Today I added the new category "lyrics" onto the homepage. You can download all lyrics by clicking on each title. At the moment you will find just one link to download but for sure there are a lot more to come!
The first gig with the new band will be on the 26th of March at the El Camino in Thun. The right place to start it all over again.....
Here it is: the new home of dimi-music.
I know it took a while but it needed its time. For whatever reasons that we don`t wanna discuss anymore.... Some call it music business.
At least I learned and moved on and one story really helped me a lot in that time.
A few years ago I met a guy in the water surfing at Contis Plage. He was from London and we two were the only one in the water. We started talking and he said that he is doing music as well and living of it. And he said: "The only one who fails, is the one who gives up."
I didn`t give up!
Finally I found some guys who have the same spirit about what they are doing. Maybe some things are meant the way they go. I`m just happy to be myself again and play the songs that I wrote as well as recording them. I hope you gonna like it....
