Some people asked if I would be posting my sets from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Red Bull Threestyle battles.  Since I won’t be competing in any more battles, here they are.  I still had the crates on my laptop so I ran through them in one take.  These are live.  I took 3rd in 2010, 2nd in 2011 and 2nd in 2012.

-The “We Will Rock You” portion of 2012 was played live using cue points and drum hits from “Grindin”.

-During “Paris” in 2012 I ate a fish fillet on stage but I don’t think anyone noticed (or cared except Impulse, ha).

Last month I was in the middle of a gig and I started getting random texts from friends that they were at Avicii‘s show in Pittsburgh and he opened with my edit of his hit “Levels“.  I finally got a hold of a video and sure enough, he’s been opening all his shows on his 2012 tour with my Etta James / Good Feeling edit that I made.  Check out the video below and grab the edit HERE.  Shout out to Petey C for the video.

Last week my SoundCloud page where I host all my mixtapes, edits and remixes reached 100k downloads!  I hadn’t ever really checked my totals and last month I saw it creeping towards 100,000 and kinda freaked out.  I’m just amazed that I have that much material floating around out there.  I felt really inspired by it so I recorded a short thank you video.  I sincerely thank everyone for supporting what I love to do, you’re really the reason I continue to do it.  Keep listening!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… The Mattress Factory Urban Garden Party is the best party in the entire city of Pittsburgh every year.  This year was a blast and the party helped raise over $220k for the museum’s unique artistic and education programs.  The party has a different theme every year and people went full-steam on this year’s Alice at the Factory concept.  I had so much fun and hopefully you were there to have a great time as well.


Check out the pics below.  The full album can be seen HERE.



On 6.14.2012 I was privileged to be part of a party with a great purpose.  The Pittsburgh Promise helps raise funds for college scholarships for Pittsburgh city students who meet the scholastic and attendance requirements.  To help fundraise they threw a fantastic party with headliners Ashanti and G. Love & Special Sauce.  Check out the pictures below and donate on their website!



I’ve got 2 HUGE events this week and you should probably come to both of them…


The Pittsburgh Promise is an amazing program that provides scholarships to children in Pittsburgh’s Public School system to pursue higher education.  Igniting Pittsburgh’s Promise is a 10 hour charity dance-a-thon to raise money for The Pittsburgh Promise.  We’ve got a huge lineup of talent to make you dance and a host of goodies including a breakfast bbq so get your tickets!

The Mattress Factory is one of the few installation art museums in the entire world.  Every year, their Urban Garden Party is THE must-attend event of the Summer.  The who’s who of Pittsburgh mingles, eats and drinks from the city’s finest establishments and dances through the museum and courtyard.  This year is Alice In Wonderland themed and I’ll be DJing it alongside NYC powerhouse Eli Escobar.  Go to the site and check out the pictures from last year!  Don’t miss it!
