to have some fun in 2013!
Current Mood: Nostalgic (gasp!)
but very open to the future.
Current Scent: L'eau D'Issey by Issey Miyake.
been a decent morning. I'm sitting here drinking some cranberry
pomegranate tea, and I've just gulped down my breakfast of a chocolate-almond-coconut
Mojo bar. (Usually I eat a bit healthier... maybe I'll have some
eggs or something in a bit.) In another window on my computer,
I am having an online discussion with Sanchez,
one of the two most influential DJs of my life (Dave French being the
other). My ten-month-old son Atticus is relaxing after bouncing
in his bouncy seat for a while.
it's a fairly normal morning.
is going to be a big year. I know that always have a lot of "big
plans" for events and whatnot, but I'll admit that a lot of them
have never come to fruition.
will make this year different, for two reasons:
February will bring the 25TH ANNIVERSARY of my introduction to the
DJ industry way back in 1988. That's hitting pretty hard, both
in a good way and a bit more melancholy way.
Certain concepts, such as my own mortality, are starting to become
clearer to me. Life doesn't go on forever, and I still have
a lot more that I want to do before my end, musically speaking and
following has been ringing in my head: "If I keep trying
to wait for 'the perfect time,' the perfect time will never come."
year, I am planning at least three special events. I can't give
many details, except to say that the first one will be a small retro
gathering, and it will probably happen within two months.
I'm about to get a lot more open about hiring myself out for private
parties again. The final EKG Pro Mobile Music gig was back in
late 2002; with very few exceptions, I have stayed away from "commercial"
mobile gigs for a decade, concentrating on club/venue events, production,
and remixing. I am ready to go back to hiring myself out for events
- from giant wedding receptions down to simple house parties.
want to have fun with DJing again - and I want to share my love of dance
music with people. It's still one of my greatest passions.
you haven't "liked" my
Facebook page, please do so, and if you really like my work, please
tell your friends about it as well. I post lots of quick updates
there, and it's the best way to keep in touch with me.
