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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

Cleared For Landing

This is a live recorded mix from my set at Moontribe, Full Moon Gathering, March 2013. It contains some slightly more energetic downtempo but ends gently and ambiently. My favorite kind of flow for a closing set. Mastered to perfection by Brian Saitzyk aka @easternsun Tracklist: 1. Electricwest – The Inability to Relate Pt. 2 2. Celt Islam – Against the Grain 3.

Poolside. Yoga retreat. Hot tub. Potluck. Oh yeah, and groooooovy beats. How could you go wrong? 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. We had several breaks in the music, and I got to start things up on Sunday morning after a 7-hour break in the music. Been […]

A voyage into the soft & quiet spaces of the beatless realm. This is a live recording of my ambient set from Floasis, a downtempo gathering that happens in Southern California from time to time. We planned the flow for ambient music from midnight to sunrise, so our guests could choose to listen or be lullabied as they slept. I’ve made ambient studio mixes before, […]

Birthday Moon

In May of this year, the Full Moon fell on the day of my birth, and so I was able to play a set on my actual birthday – something I’d never been able to do before. In fact, I was playing at the actual time of my birth as well – such a treat. I’d been collecting a bunch of new music that […]

I am happy to share my set from our glorious adventure in Mexico in April…Aural Guacamole, recorded live at Electric Poncho. The weather was HOT and the surroundings sublime. Accordingly, the beats are mellow so as not to raise anyone’s body temperature too much. Enjoy 🙂 Tracklist: 1. Occam – Invocation 2. Lemonchill – Mantra (Erot Remix) 3. Naturelement – Double Trouble 4. Yello – […]

My first new studio mix in a while. It’s been an interesting year, with my creative time being split more between DJ bookings and photography, and not nearly as much time in the studio as I would have liked. Hence, the fact that I’ve been sitting on this mix for 11 months, hoping to find some time to tinker with it and add some […]
