DJ Documentary Kickstarter

 

This Monday, January 13th, I’m launching a Kickstarter to help fund a documentary that I’m making about DJing.  There will be a separate email blast about it as well as updates on my website, Facebook, Twitter, etc. but in the mean time, follow on social media to get updates.

DJ 88 on the Extra Credit Podcast

 

In November I headed to Las Vegas to DJ some dates at Insert Coins.  Luckily I had some microphones in my bag and snagged an interview with my most hospitable host, DJ 88.  In Episode 8 (that was a total accident) of the Extra Credit Podcast, Las Vegas murder mami DJ 88 fills us in about coming up as DJ Adam 12‘s manager, Associate Producing the High School High soundtrack and carving out her place in the boy’s club that is DJing.  Do the knowledge, subscribe and give the podcast a good rating!

 

Also, if you need some DJ gear, sound, lights, whatever, visit our podcast sponsor, AGI Pro DJ, and use the code EXTRACREDIT when you check out.  You’ll save some loot while supporting a DJ-based company!

Moomba Montreal Recap

 

Last Saturday night I got to head back to Montreal to rock a set at Moomba Theater.  Moomba is a massive gourmet restaurant that transforms into a Vegas-style nightclub and books some of the biggest DJs in the world.  We clocked over 1,000 people through the doors and I put down some big room house, EDM and a dash of twerk.  The party was definitely live.  View the full photo album HERE.

 

 

KZME Interview

 

Back in October of 2013 (Yeah I’m a little late on the repost) Portland homie DJ Klyph had me on 107.1 FM KZME Portland radio to play a few joints and talk about DJing.  Luckily I had my friends DJ Excel and DJ Impulse in town that week so it was a combo deal.  Check out Klyph’s show “Welcome to the Neighborhood” online or on the radio if you live in Portland.  Recorded 10/29/2013 – Listen HERE.

2013 Motown Throwdown Recap & Live Mix

 

Last month I put out a live recording of my set from the 2013 Motown Throwdown in Morgantown, WV.  It’s a fresh mix of hip-hop, rock, trap, twerk, dnb and best of all, it’s clean (no swear words) for the kiddies.  Download the mix and check out all the photos of the event in my recap.

DJ Impulse on the Extra Credit Podcast

 

Have you ever wondered what Coffee Talk would be like with a bunch of DJs?  Well, Episode 7 of the Extra Credit Podcast turned into that.  DJ Impulse (and DJ Excel) drank all my coffee and ate all my donuts in my kitchen while we talked about Impulse coming up in Baltimore.  This episode covers Baltimore club music, horrible DJ names, touring with rappers when you’re a white dude and even gives you some great tips on making a good cup of coffee.  Enjoy, subscribe in iTunes and give us a good rating.

DJ News

 

Every week I come across articles and stories about DJing, DJing technology or just cool music-related ideas.  Since I don’t have much faith in the actual sharing effectiveness of most forms of social media, I decided to start a segment on my site called “DJ News”.  As I accumulate them, I’ll be posting happenings from around the internet related to DJing and music.  Grab a coffee and stay up to date!  Edition 1 HERE.

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.

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.
