Feeling it

A few weeks ago I made a confession to a dj friend of mine. I’d had the thought for a long time, but I never really vocalized it to anyone except my wife. He asked why I don’t dj anymore, and the simple answer was, “I just don’t feel it anymore.” Music is a passion, and I listen to it just about all day long. I can hear the transitions, the timing, the phrasing, the mix points, and the keys. But by the time I get done listening to it, I just don’t feel that ‘want’ to get behind the decks to mix.

Mac 101 – Tips and Tricks

Around Christmas every year I get a fresh batch of people asking what they can do to make their Mac more user friendly.  I usually answer a few questions here and there, but after a while the questions stop coming and people configure to what fits their needs.  This year, I have been getting a lot more questions about how to do “this” or “that” on their newly acquired MacBook Pro.  So here are a few things that I like to recommend in order of how I do them when produced with a fresh new Mac.

Video Mix 2010


Video mix I did with Mix Emergency on November 17th 2010. This was all done live on two Technics with no post-mix editing. When I missed a mix or got off track a little bit…it’s still in there. This is a NSFW video and does contain explicit language. The mp3 of this is available on the Audio page link above. Thanks and feel free to leave comments or repost.
