March 2, 2009 § Leave a comment
OKAY! So I finally got around to launching this sucker and have been hot on creating content. SOON TO COME!!! Podcast (dj mixes by myself and friends, info, remixes, etc.) Reviews, news, interviews, bullshit and blah blah. But first – I owe some shout outs to my friends and influences.. so here goes!
TNL – Techno Nerd List – Began in 2001 by a group of friends in Boston as a result of collaboration of a Michael Mayer / Kompakt show at the Phoenix Landing. What began as a rambling of excitement about techno and trading DJ mixes has turned out to me (for me) a fantastic inspiration for new music, new ideas, great dj mixes, and discerning discussion of music. Thank you TNL for all the knowledge, feedback and community!
Caitlin, Mark, Alex and Evan – my musical musketeers, WMC party-partners, dj-mix critics, family and best friends. They are the inspiration for the podcast and my inspiration to keep making music. Respect!
Markus Mehta / Electronic Soul -A brilliant DJ and Producer. My homeboy, my agent, my inspiration, and gives me a good kick in the ass when I get lazy
Randy Deshaies, Sergio Santos / Marz Entertainment – my homeboys, collaborators, inspiration, house-music encyclopedias and home-team
BG Blac / Money First Entertainment – My right hand man in the studio. Skilled producer drummer and musician.
