As well as wholeheartedly embracing digital technology to enhance their creativity behind the decks, veteran German trancers Piet Blank and Jaspa Jones have completed their latest studio album 'Logic of Pleasure. "We have been working on this album for three years," reveals Jaspa, "so it is a great feeling to see it released." The pair have also been busy maintaining their global fan-base with a hectic worldwide DJ schedule, including a highlight gig at Seoul's Next Floor festival. "It was the biggest outdoor event we have ever played," says Jaspa. "We were there with Pendulum and Hybrid," recalls Piet. "It was pouring down with rain so we had to keep all the equipment covered up, but it was the most amazing experience!" Next year the duo celebrate 10 years since the career defining 'Cream' smashed clubland and propelled Blank & Jones into the UK charts. Watch out for a big celebratory announcement in 2009.
