Nothing To See Here

December 29, 2013

To this day I still feel awkward when I’m dj’ing and people are looking at me. I always feel like if you’re not dancing I’m not doing my job. In a small bar or large venue I feel the same way – nothing to see here. I’m not gonna be a cheerleader and pump my fists, jump around and make hearts with my hands. People say you need to do that stuff to connect with the audience. I disagree. I’ll connect with people by the music I play that we can all enjoy together at that same moment. I am not the party, the party is on the dance floor. It’s not about me, it’s about YOU.

My 2013 Favs

December 29, 2013

With only a couple of days left in the year I’ll stand by my previous comment – for me, best album of 2013 is Tetra by C2C. Best comeback album between Adam Ant, Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode and Gary Numan goes to Pet Shop Boys. Best website – Facebook, I check it before I even check my email nowadays. Favorite artist of the year goes to Troy Gua. Favorite online store – Amazon. Most inspiring blogger – Seth Godin. Best performing stock for me – CRI (Carters) up over 180%, people are always gonna buy baby clothes right? Best bar in San Francisco – Madrone Art Bar hands down… entertainment, great drinks and art. If I didn’t play music there, I’d still go there. Favorite magazine – a tie between Entrepreneur and Pollstar. Favorite two house tracks that I was turned onto by people in 2013: Want You In My Soul feat. Stee Downes (thanx Alida) and It’s Time for The Perculator (thanx Travis). Have a happy and safe NYE everyone. Here’s to 2014… CHEERS!!!

Chicago friends – I’m looking forward to the Prince and MJ party this Saturday night at Beauty Bar. I’ve been coming out to Chicago now for 3 years to party with y’all and it’s exciting that my 21st time in Chicago will be on Dec 21st. For this special edition I’m flying in DJ Marco from Philadelphia to deejay with me, he is a diehard Prince and Michael Jackson fan just like me. In addition our good friend Martin Kember, who is now a member of Color Me Badd, will drop by to sing a few Prince songs for us live. It will be great to see all your faces and if you have a moment please share the event with your friends.
