To help promote their THRE3STYLE DJ battle,  Red Bull booked me for gigs in Quebec City and Montreal last month.  It was my first time in Quebec City and I got to play with the 2013 Canadian Thre3style champion Adam Doubleyou at Maurice Nightclub for their 20th anniversary party.  Everyone in QC was lovely and the party was fantastic.  I can’t wait to go back and explore more.  QC has a very European feel (it’s 400 years old) and people have referred to it as “Practice France”.

 

 

Moomba in Montreal was crazy as usual (in case you couldn’t tell from the video).  They book some of the biggest names in the biz and provide top-notch hospitality.  I’ll be seeing both cities again sometime next year, keep an eye out.  Click the photo below to check out the full gallery of all the photos.

Forbes lists world’s highest paid DJs for 2014

 

If you’re like me, you’re thinking that this list should be called “Guys Who Get Paid The Most For Putting Arms Up In The Air”.  Just remember kids, you can be anything when you grow up, even a guy who makes 8 figures for pretending to DJ.

DJ has viral “Hotel California” remix removed by The Eagles, offers douchey response

 

I’m using the term “DJ” and “remix” very loosely here…  Considering a royalty check from any one in The Eagles is going to be larger than this hipster’s trust fund, he should be paying homage to these music gods.  High entitlement coupled with low work ethic is the millennial recipe for success.

Why hipsters need to stop writing about hip-hop culture

 

This article reminded me of the time Kanye was explaining how the way hipsters liked trap music was disingenuous to the point of being racist.

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.

I’m almost positive that if I post this on my SoundCloud, it will get taken down along with a bunch of other things that I’m already fighting to keep up.  Friggin’ copyrights…  Anyways, here’s a simple intro for “Don’t Wake Me Up”.  I hate when there’s 2 minutes of no drums to kill my dance floor.  Enjoy.

It’s been a busy month as usual since my last email.  I’ve been in Portland, DC, Pittsburgh, Philly and North Carolina.  Be sure to check out the recap posts below for all the details.  On to the next one…


I’m super excited for a major gig this coming weekend.  It’s time for the 5th annual Motown Throwdown in Morgantown, WV.  It’s a giant party at WVU every year where they block off the main street in town, High Street, truck in tons of snow, hold a snowboard competition and have DJs rock it.  This year I’ll be performing with the legendary Phife Dawg from A Tribe Called Quest.  The party is  put on every year by the homie Andrew at Pathfinder.  If you’re at WVU, you’d better be there.  If you’re not, I suggest making the drive.
