On the first morning of 2016, I opened for none other than Bluetech, one of my favorite artists and also a dear friend. I’d crafted this set to have a dubby psychill […]

Heart’s Desire

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/287112108″ params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true” width=”100%” height=”450″ iframe=”true” /] Using Traktor as my main DJ tool has meant that I can be more spontaneous with playing music. It also works well for recording on the fly, as I have come to learn. This was one of those such moments. I was out of town, visiting with some DJ friends, and I’d been playing most of the day. In fact, I’d played for over seven hours earlier and then had taken a break. […]

Analog Resonant Poetry

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/283402122″ params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true” width=”100%” height=”450″ iframe=”true” /] Another mix from the archives. I played the opening set in a room full of bass music lovers at a local underground LA party series called Another Ridiculous Party in 2015. It’s been a challenge for me to find enough bass music (and resulting tangential genres) to populate a set, which I’m aware is really popular in some circles.  I usually like to switch up my genres quite a bit, but took it […]

Luminous Moods

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/278758681″ params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true” width=”100%” height=”450″ iframe=”true” /] I’ve been sitting on an archive of mixes in the past year, mostly because I could feel my creative flow changing and I wasn’t sure my output was aligned with my input. One of the biggest changes for me is that I’ve crossed over into using Traktor for playing out live most of the time and then mostly use Ableton Live for studio-prepared mixes. I had found my creativity stagnating when using Ableton […]

Be Still My Heart (Live at FNF Campout XX)

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/277067123″ params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true” width=”100%” height=”450″ iframe=”true” /] I’ve been hibernating lately, as if you hadn’t noticed. A necessary side effect of switching gears. A few months back I started using Traktor to play out instead of Ableton Live, which has been my tool of choice since 2007. I wanted to be more spontaneous in my track selection, like I used to be when I started playing in 2005, and since most of my Floasis crew uses Traktor, it just made […]

New mixes – Electric Hullabaloo & Arihkar

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 […]

Yitha

I was commissioned by yoga instructor Jessica Annand to craft two one-hour mixes for a yoga retreat taking place in July 2015 at Stewart Mineral Springs Retreat Center near Mt. Shasta, California. While I’ve played live during yoga sets before, this was the first time I’d created any in the studio. This is the first of the two. The word “Yitha” means “One” in the […]

Pureform Textures

[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/194757199″ params=”auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=false” width=”100%” height=”175″ iframe=”true” /] Stream from link above, or download MP3 here. This was a set I created for Tropical’s 16th anniversary campout held at a yoga retreat center in California. Most of the weekend’s music was house music, but there was a block of ambient-into-downtempo on Saturday morning. Starts off ambient and rises into danceable trip hop & downtempo. The recording of my set had technical issues, so this is a recreation in my studio. Mastered […]

Rapt Frequencies

In February 2014 I was invited to craft a mix for The Chillout Sessions, a monthly downtempo exploration from online radio station Box Frequency and Woodzee’s The Sun Is Shining blog, which was great fun. Trip-hop, a little funk, and eclectic downtempo rule this mix. Mastered by @EasternSun. Tracklist: 1. Rumpistol – Tangoboy 2. Tor – The Thickness 3. Merveille & Crosson – The Day You Left 4. […]

Odditory Cortex

In June 2013, the community I call home, Moontribe, celebrated its 20th year of existence under the Full Moon. I opened the gathering with this somewhat eclectic mix of ambient and near-ambient treats. 1. @wazuhiru – Velimir’s Sea 2. @phone-booth-robbers – Winter at Zabriskie Point 3. Bering Strait – Luna 4. Govinda – Clear with Fantasy 5. Ultimae – 10-low-tide-explorations – Low Tide Explorations 6. Jon Anderson – Speed Deep (The Future Sound of […]
