June 24, 2012

Somehow I ended up spending 9 full hours performing the DJ craft this weekend, including 5 hours at a "beer camp" release party and 4 hours of radio. As much as that's mentally exhausting in one capacity, I feel so privileged to serve as a conduit / librarian / entertainer / teacher / shamen to greater or lesser degrees. The earlier evening show was more along the positive/fun/funky vibe, and this show as on the deep tip. This was definitely heightened when halfway through the AAP one of the turntable tonearms crapped out, which led to a much more techno-oriented set than I normally would play in the second hour of this show, given that I usually play about 3/5 vinyl and 2/5 digital (hence newer). Well, hey, that's live radio, and full spectrum dance music. Podcasts will be up when I get my shit together not available this week. But you know I love you anyway.

June 17, 2012 - Hot Night, Hotter Tunes

It's sweltering out there. Still, at 11pm at night. At midnight. Chico's melting after a weekend of the triple digits. Sweaty times require sweaty funky music, my friends, and that's what filled my crate several days ago when I did a little extracurricular KZFR set on Wednesday night. So carrying that over to this evening, we find this set starting out with a hot blast of funk, settling into a deep dancefloor groove, and soon moving beyond into uncharted territories. Soon, we've forgotten the radiating pavement and swamp cooler buzz, as the ethereal vibes of some deep sea techno envelope us. This is how I cool off, and it's late now, time to open windows and drift to sleep on the breeze.

After taking a week off to commune with nature and other forms of music, I was pleased to dig into the vinyl vaults for this show to bring some uptempo funk, summertime house music, sax-infused techno, and even some late night electro.
