Podcast ongoing! Formerly a live radio show on Saturday nights on 90.1FM / KZFR.org NorCal
In gratitude for Scott Hardkiss
Facebook's grapevine is efficient at delivering news, both good and ill. I've had heavy doses of each this week, but the latest news that producer / DJ / radio host / mediamaker Scott Hardkiss has shuffled off this mortal coil has direct portent for me. His first single in 1993 under the moniker God Within, titled "Raincry" was a perfect melding of ambient, breakbeats and trance which drew me in to electronic music's propulsive yet blissed-out sweet spot. Because I discovered and then spun good music like God Within on the radio, I dedicated myself to being a DJ inspired by the eclecticism and mysticism of the California scene, of which Hardkiss brothers were a cornerstone. He'll be missed.
Scott Hardkiss recorded one of the best Essential Mixes I've heard. This is for your listening enjoyment this week instead of my podcast.
Resolve to practice some circular breathing this year: the brass and woodwind playing technique ensures that the noise you make never ceases even while you draw new air. Develop new abilities to sustain effort. Reject that your art begins or ends.

After weeks of travel near and far, I'm getting back to that happy place, those gliding faders and fading gliders, flashing blinkers and blinking flashers, control surfaces and surface controllers, turntables and tables turned. Miss it so. Music spills forth on all media, Thanks for listening.
