Hey y’all! Two weeks in a row… not bad! I’m trying to get back in the habit of staying in touch and posting on my blog. And if you’re still on my mailing list, I appreciate you! Last week I promised sneak previews of my impending new releases, well Ground_Control and I are delivering on that promise. Get ready for some womp womp. Our original Electro House track called “Wha…?” is coming out soon on Illeven Eleven Recordings and comes with a wicked Breaks remix by label boss Keith Mackenzie and the ILL maestro himself, DJ Fixx (KMFX). Check out the preview here, this song has been smashing it up on dancefloors worldwide! GC and I also have a Dubstep remix coming out soon of a tune by South Africa based duo, Enough Weapons, on Vibrance Recordings. Check out the preview here.
And now to the parties… this weekend will be fun times indeed. Friday I am painting the town yellow (<–asian joke ha!) and starting off the night at the 40th b-day celebration of my good friend, Opulent Temple burning man camp founder and omnipresent SF promoter, Syd Gris. I’ll be laying down some choice tunes there then moving on to the DISTRIKT Retro-Future fundraiser at Public Works, where I will be tagging with my other half of the Heartbreakerz duo, DJ Smoove. Those of you who have known me or been following me a long time know who the Heartbreakerz were 🙂 On Saturday I will be returning to Memphis to rock Rehab Disco for my sophomore appearance. I had so much fun the first time and the Southern hospitality is just fabulous (Thanx Davo!). Can’t wait to eat some homecooked Southern food and hopefully go see Graceland!
Lastly, please help me build up my DJ ICON BandPage on Facebook. I recently ditched Myspace and would like to ramp up this page instead. I finally upgraded to a BandPage with info on upcoming gigs and a Soundcloud music player, so please take the time to ‘Like’ my page; that would make me ever so happy.
All event info is below, love you long time! 🙂 x
