DJ Zimmie October 2012 Newsletter

 

Big news this month!  I’ve been hard at work on the website for my private function / corporate event / wedding business and it’s finally done.  The fine folks at R1 Creative did a brilliant job on it and I couldn’t be happier.  If you’re having a school, corporate or private function, getting married or just need a great DJ with top-notch sound and lighting, look no further.  Check out the site and see what I’ve been up to when I’m not at the club.

I told you in the last email that we’ve been having a busy, crazy awesome Summer in Portland.  If you haven’t already, check out my full post and see all the pics and details.

 

Portland Summer 2012

 

 

On the down low, I’m working on a new mixtape project.  Let’s just say that it involves sample-based Hip-Hop, it’s going to be huge and it’s going to take me the rest of my life to finish.  More details very soon…

 

Thursdays at Tube

 

I have a new alternating Thursday at TUBE in Portland with DJ Dev from Above.  Come through and get loose.  Peep the ill flier…

Portland is amazing.  I try not to use the word amazing often, but, it really applies here.  The amount of good food to eat, events to attend, things to see and places to explore is too much for one person to take in without some serious planning.  There’s an ever expanding list of hikes, bike rides, concerts, art events, parties, new restaurants, cool food carts and adventures growing every week.  This was my first full Summer here and it was non-stop fun.  I had plenty of visitors to help me eat this good food and accompany me as I explored the city and surrounding areas.

 

 

I had to show Portland Summer some love and write up my adventures in a post.  Thank you to Tia, Red Bull and everyone who helped make magic happen this Summer.  Thanks also to everyone who cooked all the food I ate.  I ate tons of it… I uploaded over 70 photos to an album in chronological order.

 

CHECK OUT ALL THE PHOTOS HERE!
