Ebb

DJ Maggie · Ebb This was the first half of a live set I played on the chill stage at a desert event called Desert Escape in October 2017. I had been booked for the main stage but couldn’t resist laying down some tunes at the little chill stage that was set up near my camp. I was exploring newly added tunes in my library, just playing around. Tracklist: 1. Kuba – Dub of the Dreamer 2. Entheogenic – Asherah […]

Beats Served Neat

DJ Maggie · Beats Served Neat Who doesn’t love a good house party? This was an opening set for such a setting, celebrating a dear friend’s birthday while cocktails and dinner were served. Later on, dancing commenced. But for now – classy tunes and sumptuous beats. Tracklist: 1. Sandspider – The Groove 2. Third Person Lurkin – Liquid Lights 3. Sheik & Beige – Aim Low 4. David Holmes – Rodney Yates 5. D-Echo Project – Inadequacy 6. Sick-E – […]

Brave New Mandelbrots

DJ Maggie · Brave New Mandelbrots Live recording of my set in the chill room at the FnF Summer Campout, 2017, trimmed a little for quality control. A collection of some of my favorite chilled tunes from the last 5 years in a little mini-set. Tracklist: 1. Emancipator – Valhalla (NKLA Remix) 2. Giyo – Mind Games 3. Spatialize – Koi Dreaming 4. Rain Dog – Like a Lame Man Stepping 5. Citta Flow – Woodwind 6. Dream Stalker – […]

Deep Beat Diving

DJ Maggie · Deep Beat Diving Pool parties at hotels…one surefire reminder of summertime. For the second year in a row, I was invited to open a pool party at the Custom Hotel with a set that accompanied a yoga class, before the dance masters took over the decks into the afternoon. This is a live recording of that set. Tracklist: 1. Spiral System – Rain (Full Length) 2. AtYyA – Emanating (Hakuu Remix) 3. Lab’s Cloud – Hypnotes 4. […]

Desert Nightcap

DJ Maggie · Desert Nightcap Spring has sprung! I spent a glorious weekend out in Joshua Tree, where the wildflowers were fully going…err..wild. Unlike other weekends this season, the purpose of my visit to JT was to attend and play at a private party for some new friends I had made recently. These friends are full-on aerial circus performers with a huge barn that they’ve turned into a big top circus area. It was so cool! I loved the environment […]

Moonrise Embrace

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 […]

Jam Mudra

I let this mix sit in my archives while I battled the perfectionist inside. This was a live recording I made of a set I played in the summer of 2016, my first set playing out again with Traktor after almost a decade of using Ableton instead. I heard all kinds of roughness when I first listened to it, as I was just getting reacquainted with how mixing differs from one program to another. The rigidity of Ableton for DJing […]

Fresh Towelette

DJ Maggie · Fresh Towelette New Year’s Day, 2016: I was celebrating the new year with my Floasis crew of downtempo musicians and DJs, as we had been invited to program 2 blocks of music in the mornings of a 4-day campout festival called Tropical Oasis. 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 flow in […]

Heart’s Desire

DJ Maggie · Heart’s Desire 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. Suddenly, we […]

Analog Resonant Poetry

DJ Maggie · Analog Resonant Poetry 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 as […]
