Miami Sessions: Vol. 1(2013)

In accepting a gig at the well known high end club Spazio in downtown Miami, I was presented with a unique challenge. I needed to choose music that the younger, more commercially oriented clientele would relate to, while maintaining my own standards. The result has turned into something of a unique and new sound for me.

Performed at Club Spazio – Miami, FL – April 6, 2013

Beach Party 5 (2009)

I admit it, this set was not actually recorded live at a beach party, despite my old website’s claim of it being “performed live at Jones Beach Field 6, June 2009.” In fact, it was one of the very first mixes I made using Ableton Live. I forced myself to learn because I was laid up in bed for a week hopped up on Percocet after having all four wisdom teeth extracted. I made good use of my time.

Beach Party (2004)

The mix that started it all. It reminds me of the short period of time I lived in Manhattan, a short lived love affair, and my affinity for cheesed out muppet house.

In 2004, I wrote:

“this summer brought me lots of uplifting and energetic house music. i wish when i close my eyes on my travels to tropical places that i could return to the fiesta on the beach with my muppet friends of yesterday.”
