“Great art is as irrational as great music. It is mad with its own loveliness.”
~ George Jean Nathan
- Stayin’ Alive
My experience writing electronic music, has provided me with many useful tools and skills that I apply to my DJ sets by making custom mixes and mashups. For instance, I recently revamped the BeeGee’s famous “Stayin’ Alive.” This track always does so well at parties that I needed my own take on it. I filled out the low end and mixed in Wyclef Jean’s version to simultaneously appeal to the young and old.
- Around the House
Whether it’s me or my lady selecting the track, these are five current tunes that are getting play around my house.
Phantomgram – Black Out Days
Love this tune. Current, moody and heavy with an infectious hook.
Ash Riser – Down
Buddy of mine who’s killing it. Big horns, pitched vocals and gritty raw hip-hop lyrics. Heat.
The xx – Shelter
Great band. Love their sound, and this song is no exception.
Alix Perez – Villains 1 x Heros 0
Razor sharp production blanketing some fresh hip hop lyrics. Turn it up.
Eskmo – Cloudlight
Another track with cutting some cutting edge production. A gorgeous soundscape with crunchy field samples over a bed of synths. Always seems to find its way back into my playlist.
