Life and it's goings on will make it so that there will sometimes be slightly longer stretches between my podcast uploads than I would like there to be. That being said thank you for your patience as we just went through one of those stretches. I am super happy to end our recent "music drought" and bring to you Sophisticated Morning 77. I start this edition out with a warm, melodic and laidback vibe and slowly ramp the energy towards a crescendo at the end of the mix. Visualize this mix as an arc. There is no straight line here. Each song subtly builds in energy until before you know it you're hearing full-on anthems. This set is versatile and would be perfect for anything as varied as late night dancing with your friends to working out at the gym or driving in the car. I hope you enjoy the uplifting vibes I've brought you. Every sound you hear originated in my heart and was mixed with every ounce of love that I've got to give. From my heart...to your ears...ENJOY.

Sophisticated Deep 14

It's a fine line that I walk as it pertains to keeping the sound of the various mix series podcasts that I release constant and steady, especially with the Sophisticated Deep series. It's super important that I keep the sound tightly confined within the genre that the series belongs to but equally important that I present enough diversity that the mixes don't become stale or all sound alike. That brings us to Sophisticated Deep 14. This one presented me a particular challenge in keeping the sound consistent from beginning to end because of how unique the song selections are. I think I succeeded and hope that you'll agree. These songs are as unique as you'll hear; sounds that are blues-y and twangy at times and exotic and Middle-Eastern sounding at others. I believe that the end result is a rich and nuanced musical smorgasbord. This is a sound that is versatile; perfect for dancing into the wee hours of the morning or as the background music to your daily routine. You pick. As always, this episode is mixed with the most joy and love humanely possible. From my heart to your ears...ENJOY.

If you are reading this then most likely you were no stranger to dance floors and the beautiful music that has graced us over the past decades. One of the best things about music is its ability to take us back to a particular time and place as though it were just yesterday. So on that subject I'm really happy to bring you the newest edition of Sophisticated Morning. There are 15 songs presented here. Five of them are instantly recognizable classics. And six of them will be recognizable to you if you were on a dance floor in the 90s (and really paying attention). And seven of them will be recognizable to you if you really REALLY know music. So that makes my newest release an awesome trip back in time. These are newly released and refreshed versions, not the originals. So I hope that you enjoy all those memories mixed in with all these amazing new chill house records to take you on the perfect trip. As always you've gotten every ounce of love I've got to give mixed into this set. In other words you're about to hear my mixed...EMOTIONS. From my heart...to your ears...ENJOY!

Sophisticated Deep 13

One of most important ingredients in the DJ/listener relationship is trust. I believe that the most successful DJs are the ones that figure out how to convince a crowd to trust them so that they may have the liberty of being a true artist -- versus being a human juke box that plays what is demanded of them. Playing what's demanded of me always seemed so boring -- and insulting truthfully. I would much rather stand my ground, play from my heart and while doing it build a following of listeners that trust me to lead them somewhere mysterious -- and beautiful. And because I know that people are trusting me it makes me take the responsibility that much more seriously. While I am an artist and I insist on creating a distinctive sound...it is also true that I myself am molded by outside influences. One influence that touched and affected me almost more than any other that I've ever encountered is the Burning Man community. 2016 was my first year and I was blessed with playing both at FunkyTown camp and also on BAAAHS on the deep Playa. If you're a Burner then you know exactly where I'm coming from here. Why am I telling you all this? Because it's all directly related to my new Sophisticated Deep 13 mix. Upon listening to this set you will hear faint touches of the Playa. It's not in-your-face obvious, but it's there. If you've been following me enough then you know that a chill and loving beat is what I'm all about. I've been a DJ for over 25 years now and I've ALWAYS been known for "morning music" -- that sound that captures your heart and your soul. This is not party music (very much by design). It's songs, without words, that don't need words. It is firmly rooted in the late night/early morning hours. I believe that if one concentrates closely enough that they will extract powerful messages -- no words needed. What are the messages in this music. I'll let you decide but for me...It's all about love and peace and spirituality. Thank you for trusting me enough to share it with you (and I hope I don't let you down). Now...enough of my babbling. On to the music! From the my heart, by way of the Playa, ENJOY.

Sophisticated Chill 9

Welcome to Sophisticated Chill 9, the slower sibling to my Morning series. The music that I source and play for the Chill sets have very much the same feel as the Morning sets -- with the only difference being that they chug along at a slower pace. This Chill set clocks in between 105 & 110 bpm, whereas the Morning sets groove along at about 120 bpm. Otherwise you'd really not know the difference. Same artists, same feel, same love. I'm especially excited about this particular set, as I have remixes/remakes of notable artists such as Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Foreigner and Men At Work. These updated familiar hits are nestled amongst the most beautiful in tropical and deep house music being released today. As always I've poured every ounce of love I've got to give into this production...and I hope that you feel and hear it. PodOmatic and Soundcloud links in the comments. From my heart...to your ears. LOVE.

Sophisticated Deep 12

Welcome to Sophisticated Deep 12. The Deep series has fast become a favorite of mine to mix. It's what I call the deeper, sturdier and more worldly sibling to my Sophisticated Morning series. These songs have the same warmth and melody that the Morning series has but are largely missing the vocals. The music that I find for the Deep series is sometimes deep and meditative, sometimes sweeping and symphonic and sometimes exotic and worldly. The common denominator is always a sound and rhythm that is intoxicating and hypnotizing. I hope that you enjoy this set as much as I loved making it and I hope that you hear and FEEL the love that I put into it. My DJ sets are true labors of love and I hope that it comes across to you as you hear and experience them. I go through hundreds of records for every mix and spend countless hours perfecting every last detail so that the journey is unique and truly one-of-a-kind. I've included the track listing in the hopes that you will support the artists and remixers who made this brilliant music. And now...on to the music. From my heart....to your ears...ENJOY.

This is the continuation of the Flagging In The Desert Party that I spun in Palm Springs on February 29, 2020. It was a day full of sunshine, bliss, laughter and love. How lucky were all were to have squeaked this amazing day in right before everything came to a full stop. This segment of the day was full of feel-good vibes and uplifting anthems. Lots of energy. As always, I hope you enjoy what I did and where I went. From my heart...to your ears....!
