This part of the party was a really exciting time for me because I was showcasing a side of me that very few people knew of, but one that I love for sure. The party truly peaked during this set and what a peak it was. This music references carnival, festival, and latin themes: lot's a horns, guitars and infectious rhythms. The crowd was right at my fingertips and I was enraptured watching as it all exploded before my eyes. To say that I had the time of my life would be a huge understatement. If you were there....THANK YOU for sharing the day with me. If you weren't...well, here's the peak set of music of the day. I hope you love it and that it brings you many days of energy and joy. As always...this music comes to you from my heart and soul. From my HEART...to your ears. ENJOY!

If you had asked me 5 years ago to imagine what the Sophisticated Morning series would develop into I really don't think I would have had any idea of what a major piece of my life it would become. I live to share and give. I'm a firm believer that God gives each of us a gift to share with the world...and this is mine. I'm a thinker and a dreamer, and I literally spend much of my free time daydreaming these mixes up. I hear the music in my head. It pushes me through my days. It's my purpose. I'm so glad that you discovered my little corner of the musical universe. It's an incredible joy to share this 75 minutes of uplifting chill house with you. If you love my sound...please share it with anyone and everyone who you know will FEEL and IDENTIFY with it. Music is a tool and it has intense power to lift us when we're down...or make good moments MAGICAL. Again, thank you for listening to my heart and feeling my soul. This is #50...and I've only just begun. From my heart...to your ears. ENJOY.

One of the reasons I was excited to play the ICARUS (Pines Party Afterparty) Party was because of the chance I was going to be given to showcase a side of me that's always been there, but has rarely been known or heard. If my name is mentioned in regards to music...most people associate after-hours and morning music with me. But if the truth is told I have always had a deep love for house music. During this part of my set I was elevating the energy towards peak. About halfway through this hour of music I gave a nod to yesteryear in a little walk back on memory lane before delving back into my deep and funky house. This was a day that I had the time of my life...and I hope you feel it in the music. As always, my music is mixed with love, passion, and joy. From my heart...to your ears. ENJOY!

I'm happy you found my little musical corner of the universe today. I'll tell you an interesting story before you start listening to my music set: I sat down to mix this set of emotional morning-style house music today and was all ready to hit the "record" button...when the Spirit told me to stop and sift through my music folder, not in search of anything in particular. Just search. And you know what I found sitting there waiting for you, for me, for the universe? The first song. I hadn't planned on it being on this set. I've actually had it for a year or so....and hadn't figured out quite where to put it. So, it sat there and waited. For now. In this time we are living...I believe that the words spoken are all the more powerful, telling and helpful. I hope you'll agree with me and you'll feel the power of words and music. I reached so deep down into my heart to find these pieces of music just send just the right message and vibe. Probably my two favorite records of the year are on this set: LEVV "Collateral Damage" and London Grammar "Big Picture". If you think you've heard the "Collateral Damage" before...you have. There was a different, slower original mix of it that came out earlier in the year that I opened Sophisticated CHILL #5 with. This new mix by Tritonal is faster and more "anthemic". And about the London Grammar: What can I say? It's really one of those records that leaves me at a loss for words. Massive. I don't often come across records that stop me dead in my tracks. "Big Picture" did just that. Unless something else comes out in the last 4 months of the year...to top it...it will come in as my #1 record of the year. As always, this mix was made for you with deep love and huge joy. From my heart...to your ears.

Welcome back to the ICARUS party. This is the 2nd part of the set (out of 5). During this part of my set I settled into a funky, foot stomping energy that was vaguely recognizable with references to classic rock. This isn't the most obvious music that you would think for an afternoon tea dance...but one thing I know...is that people love some good funk. It crawls deep into your soul...and takes control. Good music does that to you. I hope you enjoy the energy and where the afternoon was headed. It was a hell of an amazing party....and it is a huge joy to share it with you. As always...this set was mixed with deep love and epic emotion. From my heart....to your ears. ENJOY!

I believe in story telling from the DJ booth. And I like my stories to have clear beginnings, crescendos and soft landings. It's just always been very important to me to ease my crowds into where they are going on a dance floor. For ICARUS (Pines Party Afterparty) I was given the golden opportunity to do just that. The crowd that showed up was a dream come true for me. I was surrounded by many long-time friends and new friends that and we really all were very "like-minded". I was given complete and total freedom to take a journey that was full of surprises and moments of tear-inducing joy.

Hello and welcome to the newest edition of Sophisticated Morning! If you follow this series then you know what you're in for. If you're new to my podcast then I can't wait for you to hear what I've come up with for mix #48 in this series. I mix a unique brand of deep and emotional house music that is rooted in heart and soul. This whole hour is packed with astounding pieces of music from beginning to end. I would say that this set definitely falls neatly into the "me" category. If you know my music...then you know what I mean. Ok. Enough with the talk. Time to let the music do the talking for me. This set of music was mixed with heart and soul and I hope you'll FEEL it as much as I do. From my heart...to your ears...

It's that time of year again: time to celebrate all things BLACK. Black Ritual #1 is a sexually charged affaire that slowly rises into a deep, hypnotic and galloping thriller. I start the set with two exquisite pieces off of Yello's new studio album that are the perfect opening pieces to ease you into the mix. From there I slowly weave through peaks and valleys until finally ending the set with the most perfectly twisted song "Bones" that twangs in the most unique way. This set of music was conceived and mixed from deep within my heart and soul and I seriously hope that it takes you to a perfectly filthy place. From my heart....to your ears. ENJOY.

I am an American based DJ who specializes in various forms of house music. The sound I play would be classified as anything from happy house music to deep/trippy/druggy house music. The common denominator of all my music is intelligence. I do not play music that is considered "commercial". My music choices are for the more intelligent listener who prefers to go on a "trip".
