Kontakt 77: Before I Was A House DJ - February Podcast
March 09, 2015 09:08 PM PDT

Yeah, before I was a house DJ, I was a trance DJ. I spent a long time spinning my favorite music and really loved spinning it. But I was out one night at Limelight in NYC, and this guy D:Fuse who I talked about before was opening up for Scot Project, my favorite trance producer.

D:Fuse spun such an amazing, mind opening set, that I forgot who I went to the club to see! He was promoting his Bring The Drums act and his People 3 CD. Both are amazing. If you don't own People 3, you need to buy it. People 2 is also awesome, but doesn't have the live music element of People 3 that really makes it in my opinion one of the best Dance mix CDs of all time. I realized that I would never get gigs to play trance, but house was something that I could use to sell myself to promoters as a DJ they want to book.

But enough about house, this is a trance podcast. Not the kind of trance you all hear with my yearly trance mix. This is the hard stuff. The stuff i really used to live for out on the dance floor. This music defined me as a raver, as a dancer, as a force to be dealt with in the dance circles of the NYC rave scene. The music in this mix is really hard and high energy, and awesome to dance to, if you are physically up to it. I used to train just to go out to raves where I knew some of this stuff would be played. Now I just dance more so I don't have to train at all.

All tracks ripped from 12"

Yes I made studio edits of course big smile

On with the music!

Kontakt 76: This One Time, I Was a House DJ - January Podcast

Well, honestly, I've been a house DJ for a really long time, and never changed. But I do play other things too. It's all about the setting and the vibe to me. I make sure that no matter where, and no matter what I'm playing, I feel like the music I am throwing down is really a part of who I am. DJing is how I let people in, get them to know me. There's always that one person on the dancefloor who I can tell totally gets it more than anyone else. One smile stands out from the rest. Maybe theres even one of you who gets every podcast I put out that much more than everyone else out there. I'm pretty sure there is, just by definition.

It's honestly been a while since I put out one of my more standard podcasts. Thing's have been really exciting musically for probably about a year now, and I've been able to get back in to some genre's I thought I would never hear from again. Over that time though, I picked up a bunch of really great house tracks that I play out live, but haven't really put in to my real podcast format. Let's see how long I can keep this house going this time big smile

Tracklist:

1. Bedrock vs. Breach - For What You Jack Of (Kontakt's Jack On Mashup)
2. Radio Slave - N.I.N.A. (Ame Remix)
3. The Signal - Solen (Satoshi Fumi Ultra Marine Remix)
4. Bad Taste - Shitty Rave Music (Kontakt's Percussive Edit)
5. Kamisshake - Dark Beat (Deadmau5 Vocal Remix)
6. 16 Bit Lolitas & Glowfield - Reefteef
7. Jay Lumen - Get Ready
8. Breach - Jack (Taiki & Nulight Remix)
9. Lissat & Voltaxx, Block & Crown - Dangerous Society
10. Danny Tenaglia - Dibiza 2007 (Chus and Ceballos Midnite X-Press Mix)
11. A. Balter & Eitan Reiter - Too Much
12. Foamo - Sherlock (Taiki & Nulight remix)
13. Wilkinson - Take You Higher (Foamo Remix)

Here it is! The long awaited, annual Winter Trance Throwdown! Youve got to dance faster and harder to keep toasty this time of year where I am from. Not where I usually spend my winters... but that's where I'm from... It's been a warm and also very cold winter so far for me. It wasn't all that cold in Italy and Florida but up here near NYC, it has been. Global warming at the dawn of another Ice Age is really mixin it up!

I've been travelling a lot and hearing a lot of different kinds of music lately. I also have my laptop back up and running so I can at least attempt to catch up on time and get my podcasts out end of the month. So this one is only 3 weeks late. Partly because I put a lot of time in to finding the tracks and getting decent copies of hard to find tunes, and also partly because I've been working really hard lately and spend my free time playing video games instead of working on music.

But I found the time to get a head start on two more months of music, and also put together this amazing trance mix for everyone to enjoy this winter with some hot spiced cider or cocoa whatever is your bag. I'm more of a cider kind of guy.

Enjoy the mix and STAY WARM!

1. Ben Brown - City Streets (Kris B & Nosmo Remix)
2. Proff - Little space

Kontakt 74: K.W.A. - Gangsta Trippin (Live in LA) - November Podcast
December 10, 2014 09:11 PM PST

I'm pretty pissed off. Podcast is almost 2 weeks late, and it's not even the podcast I had planned. Guest mix here is from a side project where I am DJ PCP of The B.D.C. rap group (Black Diamond Crystal Crew). This set is pure Kontakt With Attitude.
My laptop finally ate shit from bring lugged around Burning Man two years in a row without being disassembled and cleaned. THe cooling fan literally has disintegrated. The fan went out and the replacement from china never came, and the replacement from the USA was DOA. Still waiting on a new one.
I've got a host of tracks I've been working on in there as well as plenty of great material for the next few months of podcasts. All is not lost but I am pretty impatient and was really on the cusp of a few musical breakthroughs in Los Angeles right before the system went down.
But this is a perfect opportunity to share one of my live sets from a rave in Los Angeles three Novembers ago. I was supporting act to the headliner and for some reason got kicked down to opener when the headliner couldn't make the flight last minute from overseas. Needless to say, I was pissed as shit. SO I decided to spin a (mostly) Gangster Rap set because I'm a real fan of oldskool hip hop to vent my anger. The second DJ didn't show so I played my full 1.5 hour set also as a bonus. Then the cops came and shut it down. It was all Kontakt all night. I felt better about the whole thing after this.

Fuck your tracklist. People loved this set.

Wow what an insane month I've had in Los Angeles. I'm not supposed to be on this coast right now, but the West has proven itself to be the best for me once again. Back to back to back weekends with no end in sight, every one a classic one to remember. Sometimes things don't go as planned, but you learn later it was all part of a greater plan. To party constantly and dance for hours until the sun comes up.

The podcast this month is an old mix I did back in 2009 for myself to explore current music and make connections to classic rave and oldskool hardkore jams. I re-edited the mix, remastered it, and changed it up a little for this month's edition.

I want to thank all the raver heads out in Los Angeles and around the country that I met in the last month. it's been really refreshing to be around people I feel like I'm family with. I'm pretty weird so I don't get that much!

What can I say about this night? It was totally amazing opening up for the man who turned my ears on to House almost 8 years ago. D:Fuse changed my life! It was a huge, huge honor to set up the floor for him at Feelin Saucey. I waited years for this moment... It was worth it. Sharing smiles with someone I look up to so much for his great music and live act skills behind the decks was something I'll never forget. Can't wait to do it again!

It was really great to play in a warehouse again. It's been a while! So I opened up pretty strong with a bunch of my exclusive mashups and twisted house bangers. Mission Control is an awesome space for a party!

Recorded live @ Mission Control in Los Angeles.

I did a nice road trip from New York to Florida and then over to Texas over the course of about a month and a half. From there I hopped in a plane and flew off to L.A. It was a great drive and I got to see a lot of people I don't usually get to see.

I can't really say much about how much the Dallas area loves dance music, but I can say that my time there really helped me get ready for how different the music is on the West Coast from the East Coast.

No news really - getting ready for Burning Man again and have some crazy gigs lined up! Really excited to rock it once again, for the 5th year in a row. Bringing out a pretty big sound system myself too this time. Half the size of Duck Pond. Next year, it will be just as big big smile

Kontakt 69: Booty Sweat - June Podcast

WOW. Podcast 69. Definitely should do something special for this one. Like something with XXX rating and copious amounts of Booty, Ass, and Titties... It shall be done! After the last few months back in Florida only one thing made sense to me for #69, and that's what I threw together here for you to hear. There could be more booty in it but I still had to keep it along the lines of the music that I actually would play out, so its phresh and funky but has moar bass than your average Point of Kontakt.

This month totally vibes with the high 90's temperatures and high 90's humidity percentage in Florida right now. Booty Sweat is absolutely inevitable. It's all pretty self explanatory. Infused with booty, ass, sweat, titties, jiggles, dolla billz, gol chaynz, and reemz - this month will make your booty sweat. A funky breakz podcast with a juicy ass in the center.

Thanks again to all the DJ's worldwide dropping the funky florida beats!

Recorded live in booty sweatin Orlando, FL
