Monster Mega Post

It's finally here. By far the best holiday. Halloween. And it's looking like we're in for some amazing weather in Cleveland...forecast calls for 64 and sunny. And it's Friday! Doesn't get much better than that kids. 

Tonight I'm playing a party at Ohio City hotspot Luxe. Cleveland corpses come thru and get freaky on the floor. Should be a blast.

I've had a lot of requests to post individual tracks from my Halloween mix, (which btw was featured on one of my favorite blogs - Slutty Fringe) so I figured this post would satiate the ghosts and goblins out there. Below you'll find a couple of tracks from my mix, along with some essential creepy jams for any satanic dance seance.

Happy Halloween!

Some jams from my Halloween mix...

Betrayal (Sorcerer Theme) / Tangerine Dream - EXPIRED

One More Day till Halloween.

Today's the first day off I've had in a loooong time. Feels great. It's an amazingly beautiful fall day and tomorrow is Halloween. Huge. 
My costume rules by the way. I'm a Hot Topic® goth.
The boogie collective known as Soft Rocks are ruling right now. They just released a 12" with tons of great edits, have been racking up some pretty tight DJ gigs and have been on official remix duties for some pretty insane artists as of late.
Keeping in step with my Halloween mode, I've chosen to post a track off Soft Rock's 2006 release Disco Power Play II.
One more day to Halloween kids!

Meet Me @ Night Moves

I've been away with alot of design work (good). A stomach flu (bad). And a couple of dj gigs (good). It's been a rollercoaster of a month kids. I also wanted to leave my Halloween mix up for a minute – check it out if you haven't already. 
Some of my links were busted after zshare crashed last week, but now all active links should be fixed.
Soooooo, let's celebrate with some music! 

Today I'll leave you with a jam from one of my favorite compilations of this year - Strut's Disco Italia: Essential Italo Disco Classics 1977-1985. I can't recommend this album enough to any music lover out there. Hot stuffs.

Two turntables, a mixer and Serato. I actually came up with this tracklist about a week ago. Didn't get around to mixing until tonite. 

Here's to a safe and happy Halloween!

It's the weekend! And it's gonna be a fun one too. Tonight I'm playing at 806 Wine & Martini Bar and tomorrow I've got the B Side's Five Year Anniversary Party. The B Side party should be bonkers. Really looking forward to it. I'm posting a track that I will no doubt play tomorrow night – a classic cut with timeless appeal. It's nutz to think that this track has been killing dance floors for close to thirty years.

I've posted the M&M Vocal Mix of this song –  a mix that's ooozing with John Morales and Sergio Munzibai's unique mixture of latin influenced percussion. Such an anthem!

The rejects from my Halloween mix keep coming. This time it's The Bollock Brothers getting the axe. No pun intended.

Oh, and that's my niece Fiona pictured above! She loves pumpkins.

The Season of the Bitch

I'm putting together a Halloween mix and going through all sorts of random music tonight. I've pretty much got the set list - a quick 10 to 12 tracks through some weird and creepy shit. I don't wanna put too much thought or effort into it; because then all that happens is I labor over tracks and mixing (yes, I do it live – no ableton for mixes – well, at least not ones I'm doing for fun ; 0) and then its like October 30th and I still don't have the "perfect mix". Fuck that. It's all about making mixes like this in the moment. And I'm almost there. 
So over the course of the next few days, I plan on posting a couple of the tracks that didn't quite make the cut. And tonight we've got reject number one*

Phantasm (Disco Remix) / Captain Zorro - EXPIRED

*Now don't get me wrong – I dig this song. I mean, there's a reason I'm taking the time to post. It just didn't work with the flow of the mix.

The B Side is Always Better

I will be playing this party with a slew of other DJ's next Saturday. My boy MisterBradleyP has been killin' the Cleveland party scene for years now - and this one is not to be missed. RSVP early to attend the private pre-party with complimentary food and drinks courtesy of Boulevard Blue, Crop Bistro, Touch Supper Club, Paladar and Three Olives Vodka.
