Hey y’all! Just a quick late night update before the week-end activities begin! As you know, I have been championing a great cause by raising funds and awareness for Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America and running in the Kona Half Marathon on June 24. So far, with the support of my friends, family and community, I have raised almost $6500 for this charity. Woohoo! Tamo, my very special honoree, who is on the road to recovery from Colitis, has graciously organized a music and fashion benefit event tomorrow evening (June 7th) at Project One Gallery in San Francisco called FASHION ON THE RUN! There will be a trunk show of local designers including Tamo Design, Silver Lucy Design, SuperSugarRayRay and more; an amazing DJ line-up: MoPo, M3, Dulce Vita, Shooey and Shissla; and a raffle for fabulous prizes including: Pioneer HDJ-2000 Headphones, limited edition gold Pioneer HDJ-1000 Headphones, gym membership to The Sports Club LA, personal training sessions, manicure/pedicure gift certificates to Sapphire Salon, massage therapy sessions, Clothing and Accessory items from all the designers and more. Everyone who has already made a donation will have free entry and receive a raffle ticket as well! Special thanks to all the DJs and companies/designers/proprietors who donated their services, goods and time. We really hope to bolster our fundraising efforts tomorrow…hope you can make it. GO TEAM TAMO!
Friday, I will be DJing at another edition of the Dusty Rhino series of fundraisers leading up to Burning Man, RHINO ROAR! This camp is like family to me and I am always happy to rock out on the Rhino, which I hear will be new & improved for the playa this year! Speaking of family, don’t forget that next Saturday, June 16th is our Opulent Temple Treasure Island Massive, our biggest off-playa event ever. This is truly an event not to miss and you will be helping the OT return to Burning Man for our 10-year anniversary at the same time – sounds like a win-win to me! We have the legendary CARL COX performing, need I say more?? OK… I will. You will also be partying in an airplane hangar on Treasure Island with 6 areas of music. Not sold yet? There is a free shuttle from San Francisco. I mean, a guaranteed awesome night is basically being handed to you on a platter. Great, it’s settled then… see you there! 🙂
Lastly, I have some news on the music front. Ground_Control and I just dropped a hot new bootleg under our new alias, ICONtrol, on Soundcloud. “Rhythm is a Dancer” is one of my favorite dance music songs of all time and it was super fun to remix! I test-drove it like crazy on the Illeven Eleven West Coast tour recently and got ace reaction and feedback from the dancefloor and fellow DJ/producer types. Super stoked to share it. Instructions: 1. Listen 2. Download 3. Put bass face on. Check it! Also, the release date for our Deekline & Ed Solo remix of “Reload” featuring Million Dan will be June 18th on Rat Records. Get yours on Beatport!
That’s all for now. All aforementioned event info is below. I’m gonna keep on running, running, running towards that finish line! Have a wonderful weekend full of rainbows and unicorns, my pretties. <3
