March is often a favorite month for a Moontribe Full Moon Gathering. The weather can be amazing, not too cold at night and toasty during the day (but not blisteringly so). Lots of people have been hibernating for the winter. If FMG falls on a weekend, it’s practically paving the way for a happy and well-attended event. That’s what this past gathering was like. Well over 1000 people, all smiles, happy to be out amongst friends old and new, enjoying the warmth. The vibe was on point, and I was honored to be invited to play the closing set, which was timed just right to end just after moonrise (hence the title). The energy is a little all over the place, as I was reading the last dregs of energy from the crowd and adjusting accordingly. It was at the end of 24 hours of party, so most people were a little worse for the wear – me included. I’ve learned to accept that the live sets when I’m sleep-deprived may contain a rough mix or two – at least to my ears. I was told many times people enjoyed the track selection so it feels like a good mix to share.

Tracklist:

1. Kaya Project – Deep Kaya (Zen Baboon mix)

This week brings not one, but two new mixes into the world. First up – a new trip hop/downtempo mix called Electric Hullabaloo. It’s a studio mix of a set I designed for New Year’s Eve 2014, but due to technical difficulties I didn’t get to play it through or record it. This past Fall I had another opportunity to play with it for a friend’s 40th birthday cocktail party, so I recorded it and then played with it some more in the studio. I’ve got it uploaded to SoundCloud, Mixcloud and Hearthis. Stream and/or download at any of these locations. Enjoy!

In addition, I was asked to donate a mix to the Healing Temple, a new community-based collective dedicated to sharing music of a positive and healing nature. The mix is up for streaming and downloading at SoundCloud. Here’s the link.

I was honored to be included in Tropical’s 14th anniversary campout gathering, marking 5 years now that I’ve been playing with this groovy crew.

Unfortunately, I no longer have the lossless WAV version of this mix so I’ve posted the 320 mp3 I still have. If you can download it, I would recommend doing so, as streaming it from SoundCloud will result in it being transcoded twice. Download from SoundCloud link above, or from here.

One of my favorite anniversary sets for Moontribe was for the 16-year anniversary, in 2009. It was the closing set, winding the gathering down after three solid days of amazing music and celebration, and it was the first time I ever got asked to play an encore…and then the entire dancefloor came together, me included, into a circle of holding hands, smiling faces, and love, so much love. A truly memorable moment that feeds my soul.
