Bainbridge Island Street Dance 2016

Music Masters DJ's the annual July 3rd Street Dance on Bainbridge Island

Let me get this out of the way right here at the beginning: I love the street dance. Bainbridge Island has so many amazing small-town traditions (yes I’m saying that even though I just spent my afternoon throwing water balloons at Seniors) but I absolutely love packing downtown for a giant dance in the streets!

DJ Set From C89.5

The past week I’ve been going through a lot of the deep, dark corners of my music database. What I have here is a set that I played on C89.5 a few years ago. It was a pretty awesome opportunity to play this show since playing mobile events can be a little musically restricting. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing, but I do have tons of music that will probably never see the light of day and this was a rare opportunity to play some of my favorite tunes.

This rides the line between progressive house and trance and is pretty high energy throughout. Enjoy!

It’s 80s Time!

Did you know that I like the 80’s? Ok, so that’s an understatement. I fergin love the 80’s and I know the music inside and out! Once upon a time, I worked at an 80’s club night and got to work for some pretty awesome crowds that let me get away with playing just about anything.

During that time, I recorded a bunch of my club sets and here is just one of them.

This mix starts of a bit post-punkish, runs into full-on italo disco, and ends up in full 80’s dance mode. Enjoy!

From Deep in the Crates: An Atmospheric DNB Mix

Did you know that one upon a time, I was a club DJ? Not only that, but I got my start playing drum and bass in the clubs around Jacksonville, Florida in the early 2000’s. You’re right, that’s a pretty long ways from being a wedding DJ, but you know what? It still influences the way I play today in a big way.

I found this mix this weekend while I was cleaning up my iTunes database. It was unlabeled, so I’m not really sure when I made it. My guess is somewhere around 2007. I dug pretty deep into my record crates to make this one with a few tunes being from the very beginning of LTJ Bukem’s  Good Looking Records catalogue along with some of my other favorite artists like Blame, who incidentally, DJ’d by birthday back in 2004.

Take a listen!
