The first official DJ for a President of the United States, DJ Adam 12 has had an interesting and envy-inducing career.  He’s been the DJ for icons like Prince and Dr. Dre as well as the resident selector at some of the best parties in the history of LA (if not the world).  Above all that, he’s one of the nicest DJs I’ve ever met.  I got a chance to meet up with him at his studio where he’s working on a new solo non-DJ album.  (On top of his amazing DJ career he’s also one half of She Wants Revenge).  Make some popcorn and enjoy this one.

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 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…

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.

DJ Zimmie September 2012 Newsletter

 

This Summer has been amazing so far.  I’ll be writing up a post in the next couple of weeks with pictures recapping all the fun.  There were great parties, trips to the Goonies house, Jazzy Jeff at the Do-Over and tons of amazing food.  Speaking of Summer…

 

You probably need some party ammunition for Labor Day weekend.  I’ve created a set in SoundCloud of my “You Gots To Grill” series.  If you don’t have them all, fill up the iPod and have a safe weekend!
