Straight From The Heart

Mixed tapes had always been a creative outlet for myself growing up. Turntables were the ultimate tool to seamlessly flow from one song to another, helping to create a musical story where the songs produced by other artists became my paint.

Learning to play live sets for dancing-starved crowds proved to be another beast all-together. It took months of practice at Russian house parties to feel comfortable playing live. Of course, I had lots of help along the way from experienced mixers - most notably South Africa's Nicholas Clarence and Russia's Andrey Len.

Last summer I met Adrien Dhanraj, a local DJ & promoter who gave me the opportunity to play in some of Calgary's clubs when I was ready. As luck would have it, Adrien was also the organizer of Calgary's annual Dirty Tones DJ Competition. I decided to enter this year back in March and was ecstatic to find out that I had managed to get a slot! Three rounds later, I had made it through to the finals. With each round, I became more and more humbled playing alongside some of Calgary's most talented DJs. A BIG thank you to Adrien and the entire Dirty Tones crew who put together such a fantastic event promoting local talent and electronic music.

Lastly, I want to send out a HUGE thank you to everyone who spread the word and came out to support the local DJ scene in Calgary during this event! The album cover shows just how overwhelming the experience was for me to play for so many beautiful people - far beyond words. Special thanks again to Patrick Latter who captured this moment (more of his photography can be found at http://patricklatterphoto.com).

This mix is a compilation of the 3 sets I played during this special event.

Be Where Your Feet Are

As the fall season approaches here in Canada, there has been enough great weather to inspire one last summer mix. Be Where Your Feet Are is a phrase that has taken on more and more meaning to me over the summer months. If you are thinking about the past or the future, you are not present in the moment. This mix was designed as an uplifting backdrop for those moments when you are in the moment, keeping the past and future out of focus.

As this podcast explores different musical styles, it's almost comforting to periodically return to the sound that you can relate to the most. This mix is what The Love & The Music is all about. Funky, lyrical, upbeat house music.

Of course, thanks to our beautiful 21st Century technology and this thing called the internet, I've had the privileged opportunity to access the sounds of DJs across the globe at the click of a mouse. So, I'd like to take this time to thank the following Podomatic Podcasters for contributing to my DJ education and who have kept me following their creative works for the last several years:

Phil Hewson: http://funkylondon.podomatic.com/
Darren Knowles: http://djknocker.podomatic.com/
Scott Zimmerman: http://djzimmo.podomatic.com/
Max Corderoy: http://maxcorderoy.podomatic.com/
Whitney Marrow: http://whitneymarrow.podomatic.com/
B-Liv: http://plantabaja.podomatic.com/
And special thanks to DJ House Cat (http://jusdefacts.podomatic.com/) for some added advice, education and inspiration of late. If you follow this podcast, then you should be well aware of these podcasts. But if not, do check them out!

Knock on every door....

Summer Inspirations Vol III

Welcome, to the third annual Summer Inspirations. The nights are getting shorter and colder, but it has been one hell of a summer here in Canada. This year's edition is a blend of funk, soul, jazz, and a hint of rap, reggae and disco.

This summer has taken me across four of our beautiful provinces, introduced me to many new beautiful people, soaked me with sunshine and re-ignited my love for the bicycle, the right brain and my deepest roots.

"If I am not for myself, who will be for me?
If I am only for myself, what am I?
If not now, when?"

Artist | Track (Remix)

Basement Freaks - Soul Men
Flash Callahan - Give The People A Break
Grinny Grandad - The Good Girl (A Skillz)
Cisco Cisco - Giro Disco
Beatconductor - I Miss U 2
DJ Twister - Ready or Not Express Yourself
The Dancefloor Outlaws - Panda
Beatvandals - Sunshine (A Skillz)

Ritz Mock Apple Pie for your ears!

This mix was planned for awhile now and I finally found some time this weekend to record it! At the request of a 30's-style mix, this one goes out to my friend Pat.

The cover art for this podcast comes from In Grid's Rivav remix of Vive Le Swing, which is where the inspiration for this mix originated. This upbeat mix steadily climbs, where it eventually meets up with the pure sound of Parov Stelar.

Summer has hit Calgary in full force and the weather has been great. Summer vacation is fast approaching and I won't be able to post any new material until I return from the abyss in late August...

Track Listing:

Artist | Track (Remix)

1. Corduroy Mavericks - What Good Is Music (Wattie Green)
2. Horatio - Sing With The Swing
3. Jeff Service - Squeeze My Woman
4. Wattie Green - Is You Is
5. In Grid - Vive Le Swing (Rivaz Club) *Cover Art*
6. Jackin Box - Jazz Bang (Pt II)
7. Parov Stelar - Catgroove
8. Parov Stelar - The Golden Boy
9. Parov Stelar - The Flame of Fame

Australia Reloaded

My DJing journey began three years ago (wow, has it been that long!?) in Newcastle, Australia where a buddy of mine convinced me to go halves on a set of Stanton turn tables - so I have to thank Marko for getting me hooked on this. I also got to thank Nash for making me listen to house music for about 6 weeks straight, that seemed to be the final knockout punch.

Anywho, I recently listened to some of the old mixes we made during that time, and decided I had to bring those tunes back to life with some much improved mixing. These tracks are some of the bangin' house tunes from ~2007, which followed me wherever I went on my journey.

I think I'm finally safe to say summer is almost here in Canada, and we are lovin' it! A perfect time to continue living the dream!
