Mixes have been posted

In my continuing effort to pull this site together, I am happy to say that I have completed posting my freely downloadable DJ mixes for your listening pleasure. Most of them are hosted by SoundCloud, but a few are hosted elsewhere and now you can locate them all in one place. Enjoy!

First show has been booked!

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been asked to display my photos at Whole Foods Market in Venice as a part of their Local Artisans section. Once a month they have a Locals Night where they feature local farms & vendors, local musicians and have an opening reception for a visual artist. I’ve been chosen for November’s opening and am hard at work getting everything in order! The reception date will be confirmed shortly and I’ll post another announcement, but […]

Sixteen Candles

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 […]
