Super-Fly with Dimitry!!!

16 06 2009


Join me at Kiss and Fly this Wednesday where I’ll be spinning with my main man (and neighbor) Dimitry.  Expect a lot of big room club bangers – similar to my nights at Citrine.  If you haven’t been to Kiss and Fly, it’s a great room with a lot of energy.  Expect some:

Hip-Hop: Maino – million bucks feat. swizz beatz
House:  DJ Beatbreaker – Back In Miami Bitch (Bas Kick Mix)
Reggae:  Elephant Man – Jook Gal (Head Gawn RMX)
80s:   DJ Jay Spring – Uptown Girl

And a whole onslaught of irreverent mashups!


What are YOU doing this weekend?

24 07 2008

I’ve got two events for you to check out this weekend.  Tonight, head to The Inn LW12, a small place in the meatpacking district with a laid-back vibe unlike the rest of its surroundings.  I’ll be playing a mish-mosh of tunes for a diverse crowd.  Arrive early and claim a seat or show up late and dance on tables.

I’m pretty excited for the next announcement.  GBH, who brings you parties at Hiro, Le Royale, and The Inn, has invited me to DJ the Robot Rock party this Friday at Le Royale.  J.D. Samson of Le Tigre and Sia (who i totally crush) will be DJing upstairs with resident Alex English.  I’ll be manning the decks downstairs all night, so expect an eclectic mix of indie dance tunes with a sprinkling of hip-hop, classics, and the occasional guilty pleasure.

Here’s a sampling of what you could expect to hear:

The Presets – This boy\’s in love (Life Like remix)

MGMT – Electric feel (Justice remix)

Dizzee Rascal feat. Calvin Harris – Dance wiv me

Hellogoodbye – Here in your arms (Young Americans remix)

Usher – love in this club (Sta remix)

I Predict a Riot

GBH asked me to assemble a indie-dance-mix for a new bar in the Meatpacking district. What transpired last night was 40 minutes of rock, electro and dance jams not for the faint of heart. Let me know what you think!

Many of my friends are celebrating Hanukkah this week – commemorating the rededication of the Temple of Jerusalem by the Maccabees after their victory over the Syrians. The Maccabees also happen to be a talented rock band hailing from Britain. Their music is infused with equal parts heartache and raucousness, but is not as contrived as many of the other Brit-pop bands out there. They’ve been on heavy rotation in my headphones for months now.

The Maccabees – Precious Time

The Maccabees – X-ray

The Maccabees – First Love

On a side note, Indoor Recess has been downloaded 24 times already and Supreme Sunday just passed the 400 download mark…yet no comments. I hang out with the same 8 people every week so who else is out there? Let me know what you think. Did it start an impromptu dance party? Can your nana mix better than me? Did it make you want to make out…in the back of the el camino…like after the prom?

September Mixtape

26 09 2007

Instead of making a fresh mix this month, I just jacked 40 minutes of my set from Sunday. My first night at Supreme Trading was tremendous – great crowd (mostly my friends), great food (Lynne’s delicious sausage and pepper sandwiches), and great tunes (courtesy of yours truly). Despite some technical difficulties – the lack of one turntable – and a little bit of stress, it was a strong inaugural night. As always, you can stream the mix on the player on the right or download it here. Here’s the setlist:

  1. M.I.A. – Paper Planes
  2. Rihanna – Umbrella
  3. The Knife – Heartbeats
  4. White Stripes vs Led Zeppelin – Icky Thump (DJ Zebra whole lotta love remix)
  5. The Go! Team – Grip like a vice
  6. Kid Sister – Damn Girl
  7. Blur – Girls and Boys
  8. Hot Chip – Over and Over
  9. Matt & Kim – No more long years (The Risk Remix)
  10. M.I.A. – Boyz (The Twelves Remix)
  11. The Futureheads – Skip to the end (Digitalism Remix)
  12. Technotronic – Pump up the jam
  13. Eurythmics – Sweet Dreams
  14. Thunderheist – Suenos Dulces
  15. The Cribs – Men’s Needs (CSS Remix)
  16. Shout Out Louds – Impossible
  17. Cold War Kids – Hang me up to dry (Ingo Star Cruiser Remix)
  18. Afrika Bambaaataa – Planet Rock
  19. A Plus D – Don’t stop believing in planet rock

  21. Ram Jam – Black Betty (Cousin Cole Remix)
  22. Feist – 1234 (Vanshe Technologic Remix)
  23. Kid Sister feat. Kanye – Pro Nails
  24. Soulja Boy – Crank Dat (Cousin Cole Remix) – Yes, two basically back to back because cuz is killin it.

So if you don’t have to wake up early on Monday morning and want to hang where the cool kids are, come to Supreme Trading where I will continue to shamelessly self-promote.
