This is a mix that was co-created with my sister Andrea for a women's bootcamp class in Calgary. Lots of high-energy tunes here to get you through an hour-long workout; complete with some slower tracks at the end for some stretching and integration. An eclectic mix with something for everyone: funk, hip-hop, swing and pop. All served up with a side of (DJ)Rabbyt stew. Love can be love.

Canoe and a Cave (Autumn Inspirations Vol I)
September 18, 2016 10:01 PM PDT
itunes pic

As the leaves start to fall off the trees and that distinctive chill in the crisp autumn air returns, I am called to slow down and turn inwards. Autumn is represented by the medicine wheel direction of West and the colour blue (or sometimes black). In Ayurveda, autumn is represented by the Vatta (wind) dosha.

May this melodic and emotive mix help to relax and create space for introspection. The title comes to me from what I could remember from a recent dream… [I remember being asked 2 questions. I cannot remember the 1st for the life of me. The 2nd involved making a connection between a canoe and a cave. I began my story explaining how reality was a sort of illusion and how physical journeys were actually more about the inner journey - what goes on inside someone. Henceforth, it matters not whether you are travelling in a canoe or sitting in a cave. A cave is a type of canoe. The journey is inside regardless.]

"Remember, you only need to move a 1/4 inch in the direction of your dreams to start feeling better" - Don Ollsin

BEACH (Summer Inspirations Vol VI)
July 25, 2016 08:15 PM PDT

I love to feel full circles….. when what I thought was maybe lost returns again stronger with the uncanny sense of how it felt at the very beginning. The Love & The Music was born on the beaches of Australia. During my honeymoon in July I visited the Hawaiian island of Maui and felt the return of the inspiration of the beach (the cover photo and the ocean waves heard throughout the mix were recorded off the western shores of Maui). During this special time in my life I was filled with an incredible amount of creative energy, which has finally manifested in this sun-soaked tropical house mix. Thank you to everyone who supported Kimberly and I in our journey together, may you feel my love for you in this album. To everyone else, may these sounds lighten and uplift your mind, body and spirit….. wherever you are. One love.

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....

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)
