WOW! Much excite! For the first time ever, I am offering Turntablism Tutorials. This has been a long time coming, but due to various factors like a lack of money for equipment I hadn’t gotten things off the ground. 

Until now!! I plan on releasing a new tutorial every single week covering everything from the most basic aspects of DJing to extremely advanced, secret techniques for turntable pros. So subscribe to my YouTube channel to get notified when I post new videos! See you next week 🙂

Every Saturday I stream music from 5-7 PM. It was a super fun event, and I broke all kinds of records for my stream! I had so much fun in fact, that I ended up playing an hour and a half past the 7PM mark haha! I always super duper appreciate everyone who tunes in, the chat was lively and exciting from beginning to end. If you see this post, go ahead and give my channel a follow so you can get notified whenever I go live. To check out the video from the stream, click play below:

Hello all and sorry for the long dearth of posts! This quarantine has got me in a creative mood again. After all, what else am I supposed to do? So in the spirit of creativity I am going to be streaming twice a week on Saturday and Sunday from 5-7 PM EST. I might keep going after 7, but it just depends on how many people are watching and what kind of mood I am in.

Anyway, tune in to my Twitch Channel by clicking here. For my first regular stream I’ll be streaming a Hitman 2 Silent Assassin, Fish Slaps Only run by popular request (a.k.a. my girlfriend lol). Make sure you smack that follow button once you are tuned in so you get updated whenever I go Live!

Today, my homie Marley the Messenger recently released a brand new music video: Flo State. As per it’s title, it’s a track about entering the “flow state”. The flow state was first recognized by Hungarian researcher Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of “Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience“. Flow is a state of uninterrupted focus that increases energy, attention, memory retention, and can even mold the brain to be more efficient. To set the stage, Marley chose a Yoga studio called Aurora Healing Arts to film the party and meditation scenes in the video. Although now closed, the memory of this amazing space will live on through this music video. Enjoy, hip hop fans!

Another year, another amazing Pirate Camp! If you aren’t aware of it, Pirate Camp is an annual event thrown by the Never Say Never Foundation, which is a nonprofit dedicated to helping amputees. Once a year they gather together to foster a sense of community and belonging among  this inspiring group of people, by teaching amputee children nautical survival skills, sailing, and teamwork.

After all their hard work on the high seas, Never Say Never serves dinner and then throws a MEGA DOPE PIRATE PARTY!! The above audio recording is an hour excerpt from the dancing portion of the night, after the awards ceremony ends.

Which, speaking of the awards ceremony… it is always a completely mind blowing experience seeing the heartfelt generosity of the Never Say Never crew bless kids with new sports prosthetics. They enable them to walk, run, play sports, and even swim. This year, they even gave out their first prosthetic hand with articulated fingers, made with a 3-D Printer. 

It is absolutely stunning how Never Say Never is changing people’s lives.
Pirate Camp is a place full of compassion and togetherness, and I am honored and humbled to be able to participate every year. Please enjoy this VERY special recording!

The homie Marley the Messenger has just released his new music video, “Think Before You Speak”, and just as I suspected… IT’S A BANGER. I myself just saw the final version about 5 minutes ago, and I’m very pleased with how it turned out. If you aren’t already aware, Marley the Messenger is one of the emcees I endorse and perform with at hip hop shows across the Southeastern US.

I even have a cameo in the video starting at 2:05!

A few months ago I played at Summer 72’s Silent Disco, and had an UTTER BLAST. I must say, the Summer 72 festival was one of the best organized, most fun and engaging music festivals I have been to in Gainesville… probably ever. 

And the Silent Disco was the cherry on top. This was for real my first time doing a Silent Disco, so I was a bit nervous… not really knowing what to expect. But once I got started, I REALLY enjoyed the format. Being locked away in my headphones let me focus on my mixing and crowd engagement in a way that can be difficult when the club is lit and the speakers are set to 11.

Besides that, I had the good fortune of checking out Zach Deputy’s set, and BOY is that dude a rare talent! If you’ve never seen him, he basically uses his custom designed looping setup to create improvised jams that are always surprising and incredibly danceable. If you ever have a chance to peep his set, I HIGHLY recommend it.

And I don’t wanna forget to give a shout to my homies from Locochino burnin’ down the other Silent Disco set on the main stage. Bananas! But for real, the other DJs and acts were fire too… Dillon Rose, Electric Kif, Anubis… what a night!
