It's been a rough spell for many of us in the United States. And because of that I felt a particular urgency to put out a new Sophisticated CHILL. We live in uncertain times. But one thing that I also know is that music is powerful and can be used to enhance our physical and mental state. That being said I hope you'll give Sophisticated CHILL #3 a listen and allow it to sooth you and bring you to a place of uplifted peace. I have included some familiar pieces on this edition. We all love those throwbacks that take us to particular times and places. I hope you feel my vibe and allow it to touch you deep down in your soul. From my heart...to yours.

Sophisticated Morning #42

As I DJ I think it's important to give my crowd some recognizable music in addition to introducing them to artists and songs that they wouldn't have known had they not heard it from me. Recognizable pieces on this set are amazing remakes of "Sweet Child O Mine" (Guns N Roses), "Twist In My Sobriety" and "Love Will Never Do" (Janet Jackson). All three remakes are brand new and I think they do good justice to the originals. All the other pieces on the set are brand new deep house records that have gorgeous emotion and intelligence. This podcast is free for you to download. All I ask is that if you like my sound...to please share it with your likeminded mates and friends. From my heart...to YOURS. Enjoy.

Burning Man (BAAAHS @ Family Jewels)
October 03, 2016 06:57 AM PDT

Last month I went to Burning Man and experienced the single greatest week of my entire life. I am blessed to get to travel to many places and experience many things through my DJing and I must say that this experience was the most unbelievable of them all. It was my first "Burn" and I really didn't know what to expect. As we drove deep into the desert I was anxious...but as we arrived into the gates of the city I burst into literal tears and the anxiety melted away. What ensued the next week was pure magic. I saw things, felt things, experienced things, and heard things that I never had before. The DJ set you'll hear from me is "quintessentially me" and one that I am quite proud of. It is full of heart and emotion. It was surreal spinning from atop BAAAHS as it rocked back and forth as the crowd danced and sent their arms to the sky. I hope you'll FEEL the goosebumps that I HAD that night. From my heart...to yours.

Sophisticated Chill #2

Have you ever heard that saying that says if you ever stop loving your job that you should quit, or stop doing it? I totally agree. And the opposite also applies. I, to this day, still get excited beyond words whenever I'm about to embark upon a mixed podcast set or live DJ gig. The spark to my soul from music is as strong today as it was 23 years ago when I first started DJing. That brings me to this new podcast, SOPHISTICATED CHILL #2: Excitement pulsed through my veins as I conceived this hour of luxury chill beats. I believe that the same will happen to you as you settle into the mix and allow it to "take" you. The sound for my CHILL sets is quite similar to my MORNING sets, only slower. This particular set chugs alongs between 110-113 BPM. The music may be downbeat...but the feel is euphoric. As always, this set of music comes from deep within my heart. I believe we are all seeking out heart, love and authenticity in life...and so it's my pleasure to give you a glimpse into my heart, let you feel some of my love and experience some of my authenticity for the next hour.

Sophisticated Chill #1

Welcome to the very first edition of SOPHISTICATED CHILL. I am so excited to bring you this new offshoot series from my Sophisticated Morning series. Whereas my SM podcast series concentrates on music in the 120 bpm range this new series showcases music that is as emotionally rich and gorgeous, but rolls along at a much slower bpm. This particular edition clocks in at 101 bpm. I have packed feel-good anthems from beginning to end. Coldplay opens the set...with Selena Gomez, Gwen Stefani and Marvin Gaye eventually making their way in to the mix. This is music that you couldn't quite dance to, per se, but you WILL want to throw your hands up to heaven and scream with joy. I hope you feel my joy, my heart and my soul upon listening. This is just the beginning of these sets. I have so much music that is slower and I need to showcase all this beautiful music. If you'll allow it....this music WILL make your life more rich, more joyful, more beautiful. This music saved my life....and I hope dearly that it affects you...as much as it does me. From my heart...to yours.

Flagging In The Park (Forever Young Edition) #1
May 08, 2016 09:21 PM PDT
itunes pic

Welcome to one of the best days of my entire life. I don't even know where to start with my thoughts concerning this day. I'll try my best. About a year ago I was having dinner with my friends Marcos & Xavier and Marcos spoke of how he wanted to bring me to San Francisco to spin his birthday party. As the conversation progressed we all realized that our birthdays were all within days of each other. The brainstorming continued...and we ended up with the *unofficial* Flagging In The Park to celebrate all of our births. The day started with bright shimmering sunshine and was a perfect San Francisco day. The anticipation for the party was epic, as friends flew in from all over the the continent (and Hawaii) to celebrate. I can't even put into words the euphoria that ensued. I chose music that was touching, uplifting and had special meaning. This podcast is the first segment of the day. I open with Cat Stevens "If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out". It embodies everything I think life is about: Freedom. Happiness. It encourages us to seek and do whatever brings us joy. I have loved this song my whole life...and it was the perfect start to a perfect day. Because Flagging In The Park gives me complete and total freedom to BE MYSELF I then eased into a couple of non-dance acoustic pieces before gliding into sweet and emotional house music. I hope that you'll be able to hear the joy of the day in the recording. From my heart to yours....ENJOY!!!

SleazeBall NYC
March 22, 2016 07:58 PM PDT

I have just returned home from NYC almost at a loss for words from the experience I just had. I had the joy of DJing the SleazeBall (alongside legendary DJs Michael Fierman, John Ceglia, Randy Bettis and Phillip Kimball) and what an unbelievable experience it was. Our tribe of flaggers, fanners, dancers and totally free spirits joined for a wicked good 10 hour party. This recording is my 2 hour set. I hope you enjoy the dark and driving sound that I presented. I was in a total "zone" during my set...and I do believe you'll feel and hear it upon listening to the podcast. This set was conceived and mixed from deep within my heart....and was an epic joy to deliver to the partygoers of SleazeBall. Enjoy the journey.
