About

Been spinning a long time, 18 years, half my life. Have spun nearly every genre, have vacillated between taking this very seriously and not giving a fuck. It is more than a hobby, this is integrating an artistic conversation spanning the globe and it is my passion. This particular conversation we’ve been having in the Deep (house/tech/breaks) arena is particularly dope, and I’m excited to be a participant again by spinning & producing that which moves my ass and soul, and raises my hands to the sky.

Mixing is my zen-state. It isn’t an intentional act as much as it communion with sound, with the muse.I don’t plan Sets. My mantra is the ‘right song at the right time’, and you’re never going to answer that question until you’re in the moment. I kicked the vinyl habit in ‘05, but I still use CDJs, not laptops with an autocue button. No disrespect, but you can hear the excitement in a live-mixed set, when there’s no net, when the DJ is a sneeze away from a trainwreck...It is something that auto-cue DJs may never understand or hear. That I like a slippery beat or two, to flash your cards, to show this is real, this is Now, and we’re deep in it, together. I also only like to mix deep, 3 mins so. It isn’t deep music unless you mix it deep, over your head in sounds, dancing with them as if Tai Chi, rolling them into another as if an Akido master. The tracks dictate how they want to be mixed, the moment dictates what energy wants to emerge next; a DJ isn’t there to be intentional, we’re supposed to be receptive. You can hear the difference.
