Wishing everyone a beautiful holiday season! Keep it funky :)
Much thanks and love to everyone that has taken the time to comment, offer feedback, download, play out and share my productions over the past year. I can't say enough how much I appreciate all of your support. It's been a great year and I'm excited for the year to come. Wishing you and yours all the happiness and blessings you deserve in 2012....Happy Holidays! xo
This boogie joint is built off of an edit of the instrumental version of "Fragile Handle With Care" by Cherrell combined with the acapela of "Free", the house music classic by Ultra Naté. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
I finally got around to uploading a small bit of video from the infamous and epic event that is the NYC Downlow at Glastonbury Festival. Thanks to my mate Flori (the cute, mad one in the striped top) for taking my camera and filming this bit. See you next year!
You can still download my set on Soundcloud.
Have you guys seen this yet?! I guess this came out a few years ago but apparently i've been sleeping on the job. Better late than never, eh?
It's been about a year since I last played in New York and I couldn't be more hyped to be going back! Not only do I have a grip of new edits I've done that no one has heard yet, I'll be joined on the decks at Fantastic Pleasure by two good friends and dope dj's, Merlin & Fingerscales (aka Jason & Josh). If you are in the NYC area, come through to Trophy Bar Friday night because we gonna be gettin' down!
Fantastic Pleasure takes place at Trophy Bar

While driving cross country from San Francisco to the East Coast, I scored this amazing 12" by the Shantell Sisters. I'm not gonna front, I new nothing about this record when I pulled it out of a stack in a record store in Indiana. It just had that look of something I would dig and I was intrigued by the low budget design of the cover. Not to mention, it was only a dollar. When I finally made it back to the East Coast, I pulled it out along with a few other things I picked up. I rubbed back and forth against my thigh the still sealed end of the sleeve, unleashing almost 30 years of shrink-wrapped funky goodness. After having a listen, I ran to google the tittle. It was only then I learned that the group was essentially an unknown funky disco outfit from Florida and, if you can even find a copy of this disc, it sells for upwards of $150!
Featured below is the b-side dub mix, which I plan to do an edit of in the very near future. Enjoy!
I've just returned from a great month out on the West Coast, visiting old friends and playing some really fun gigs. I also had the time to work on some new edits as well as a chance to get back in the studio with my man, Schnezzy from 2 Block Radius. For now have a listen to and feel free to download my new edit of 'Tonight You & Me' by the disco diva, Phyllis Hyman. This one is guaranteed to bump!
