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....!

The art of creating soundscapes is a really tricky thing. There are so many circumstances that go into magic happening and there is never any way to know that it's happened until it's already in process or it's played itself out. I just had one of those really rare experiences; I composed a set that fell together so seamlessly and with such little effort that as I was mixing I couldn't believe that it was happening. I usually put more emphasis on the technical components of a mixed set as much as the messaging itself. As far as I'm concerned the messaging comes from the Spirit, a higher power, and I believe that my intuition won't allow me to put mixed messages together. So typically my obsession during the creating process is on the technical side of it. With this set I completely flipped that script. Here -- I obsessed with the messaging. This mix set had been planned for weeks but yesterday I awoke to find out that a friend and mentor had suddenly passed away and it has rattled me deeply. The set of music that I was going to create had to go out the window and I had a day to completely reimagine what this set should sound like. Now that it is finished I really am astounded. Almost every song has hidden or not so hidden messages in it that are relevant to this very moment in my life and the lives of many that surround me. So I hope that you'll hear the peace and love and that the messages will speak to you clearly. As always this music came from the depths of my heart and it gives me life to share it with you. From my heart...to your ears.

Welcome to Sophisticated Deep 11. You know, my creation of podcasts is a long and winding process. The amount of music that I have to sift through to find enough to put on any one podcast is staggering. And the amount of time that I spend shopping for the music is equally staggering. And once I have the music gathered and sit to compose a mix...a whole new journey begins. When I'm piecing a set together I'm focused on the "feel" of the pieces of music more than actually listening to the songs specifically. The listening comes later. I'm also hyper-focused on making sure that the songs "belong" together. Sometimes before I mix a set I'm convinced that that particular one will be the best of the best...and then I come to feel later that it's just so-so. And then other times a set will sneak up on me and will blow me away once I've actually settled in and listened closely to the actual records. Well I think with this set I have found one that has surprised me and left me speechless. I hope that as you listen to this new set that you'll allow the chords, the sounds, the textures and the vibes to entrance you and let you dream and think. As always I've composed this set with every ounce of love that I have to give and I share it with you joyfully. From my heart...to your ears...ENJOY.

I like a lot of music but I reserve LOVE for very few pieces of music. I usually "frame" my mixes around the particular pieces of music that I love the most. Most of the time my sets are built around a few songs that are my favorites and sometimes it will be literally, one song, that the entire set is built for. So I'm really excited to present to you Sophisticated Morning 70. My favorites on this set are the first song by Harry Styles (formerly of One Direction fame) "Falling", the fifth song "Perfect Motion" by Rob Made which is a male vocal remake of the incredible song by Sunscreem, and lastly "Believe" by Zhiko, which is a remake of the massive Cher hit. The sound of this entire mix is built around those 3 songs. I hope that you love what you hear and that it all lifts you up during these hard and challenging times. As always I've mixed this set with an abundance of soul and love. And it's my gift to you. From my heart...to yours. ENJOY!

Hello again beautiful music-lover.
Welcome to Sophisticated Deep 10. This is a patient, slow burning, mature mix that really draws you in. There's really no words to be found on this mix, but that's very much by design. What you will hear though is music with stunning textures, brilliant sounds and exotic rhythms.
You'll hear hints of my Morning series all throughout this set. In fact, it was a toss-up as to what I was going to name this set. I did almost brand it Sophisticated Morning -- but decided against it because, although it's stunning in beauty, it's missing the vocals that most of my Morning sets have. So...Deep is what you get! I hope you "feel" me here. This is my raw soul up front on display for you. Music is my gift to the world. So if you love it...share it! From my heart...to your ears. LOVE.

I'm still kind of glowing from Flagging In The Desert in Palm Springs on Saturday. Getting to do what I love so much while being surrounded by people that I love so incredibly gives me a feeling that's pretty much impossible to describe. Thank you to all of you that were there surrounding me giving me so much happiness. Your energy feeds my soul. Now...about this music: it's a sound that I've loved forever but don't push forward in my sets very often. For FITD I decided to play house music only; concentrating on a sound that was sometimes deep and funky, sometimes piano-laden, sometimes disco-centric and sometimes driving and uplifting. But the common theme was house music. I had the time of my life and I hope that you'll hear it in this live recording (#1 of 4). The rest of the set will be up shortly. In the meantime...enjoy the beginning of the day. From my heart...to yours.

Epic Maui Journey 7 (#1)

We say this every year...but wow, what a day it was on the beach. Every year we don't think the joy and euphoria can be topped from the previous year and then, just like magic, the joy and the euphoria is totally off the charts. This year was epic in every way. Now...about the music: if you've been a follower of mine for years then you'll know I am insanely critical of myself when it comes to my DJ performances. I believe that the (beat) mixing component of the art is as important as the musical selections. Luckily I was "on" this day. I was having such a blast behind the decks and I hope that you'll hear it as much as I felt it. Full track listing is below for those of you that follow the music extremely closely (and I know there's a lot of you). From my heart...to yours...ENJOY THE MUSIC!

I've been stockpiling so much amazing music here lately that it was really difficult trying to zero in on what sound this podcast was going to have. What I did know what that there were three songs that HAD to be on this mix: "Keep Moving" by Boxer Rebellion, "Daydreams" by ARTY, and "Everytime" by Lustral. The Lustral straddles the line between progressive house and trance so I decided to start the mix with a chill-house vibe and then subtly build until the set crescendos at the end with the Lustral. I hope that you enjoy the journey that I take you on. Enough with the words. On to the MUSIC. From my heart...to your ears. ENJOY!
