Sophisticated Morning 52

As a DJ and artist I believe that it's my job to evoke intense emotion out of every person who listens to what I choose to play. Music is an insanely powerful tool that can be used to make every moment better, stronger and more enhanced. And I keep that in mind as I choose every single piece of music that gets heard from me. And that brings me to my latest podcast: SOPHISTICATED MORNING 52. Wow, what a selection of songs I've selected for you to hear. For any typical podcast (or live DJ gig) that I play I start by having listened to hundreds of pieces of music that I sift through to get a skeleton list of songs gathered to work from. And from my list of songs I narrow it down to the very best....of the best for you to hear. I begin this set with a string of powerful chill-house vocal records that are quite emotionally epic. About halfway through the set I take the vibe deeper but carefully chose records that kept emotionlly uplifting tones, vibes and chords that complimented the "feel-good" beginning of the set. These are my favorite types of records: deep, mind-blowing expansive bass, with unique & unusual sounds that grab your heart and imagination. These are anthems, just not the commercial sort you'll hear most places. I hope that you love the journey and vibe I've chosen. As always, this set of music was mixed with every ounce of love I've got to give. From my heart...to yours.

Epic Maui Journey 5 (#1)

The most anticipated day of the party started with bright glistening sunshine and not a cloud in the sky. This party is unique in so many ways - one being that it's located on a remote strip of beach that's only accessible by traversing winding paths and then climbing down over cliffs made from volcanic lava. To say that it takes dedication to produce this party is a bit of an understatement. But because of the dedication of so many loving souls...this party is 5 years strong. This year had drama like no other. At 8:07 AM an alert sent shockwaves across Hawaii: an impending ballistic missile attack was imminent - and it was NOT a drill. Panic washed over the island like a bolt of lightening. Everyone was jolted into urgent thought. People were hysterical, running in the streets - looking for answers. It is during these moments when it's time to decide what you live for. For me and so many of my friends and fellow music-lovers it was a no-brianer: If a ballistic missile was going to rein down upon us...it might was well happen while we were LIVING our best life: DANCING and FLAGGING. As it happened, the ballistic missile alert was indeed a jaw-dropping mistake. The whole ordeal put extra meaning into the day. There was more hugging, laughing, crying, dancing, flagging and overall moments of euphoria that day than can really be described. Words wouldn't give justice to what happened on that beach. In the absence of words...I present to you the music that drove the day. I intentionally chose music that had sunshine baked into it to start the day. These are records of optimism, positivity and sheer joy. I hope you love the sound I chose and I hope that you feel my heart in every sound and every chord that you hear. 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.

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.
