One Of The Funnest Pieces of DJ Equipment! 

The Denon DJ Prime GO has  been in my studio for at least several months now.  I've created a video to show what I like, dislike, and wish was different.  Nonetheless, I enjoy using this thing and practicing.  If you're a DJ, I think this might be a worthy tool for your tool kit!

Friday Night House Parties! *Live Mixes* 

Every Friday I'm going live on Mixcloud.  They don't interrupt the mix, which means I get to play music continuously for YOU!  I've done it for 2 weeks now and it's going smoothly.  So you can count me in again this Friday @ 8 PM Central.  Did I mention that it's FREE for you?  No ads & no shutdowns.. just music. Here's the link!

Sometimes 'No' Can Lead To 'Yes!' (Hopefully) 

OKAY, guys... so I didn't get selected for the @EDMDriveIn opening set opportunity.  I was a little bummed when I didn't see my name on the list.  But, I know that you only lose when you DO NOT submit.  That's the whole thing with competitions... you have no idea what or if the judges are even looking for anything.  Is it large amount of followers?  Specific music genre?  A certain look?  Who knows!  It's usually not off of skill, haha!  I say that because I knew some other well known DJs in San Antonio who also got passed up.  Sometimes that's just how it is.

So what next... Do I mope and feel depressed about the missed opportunity?  Absolutely not!  I took the time after the competition to complete my next EP "Skinny Dip" which will release in August.  I'm also realigning my marketing plan to better fit different revenue streams.  This recent 'No' has provided me more drive to continue honing in my craft as an artist and creator. 

I'm very excited about the future and I have faith that I will succeed in this industry.  Good things are coming because the hard work is happening :)

Mix Submission For San Antonio's @EDMDriveIn Event  

San Antonio is having an event called @EDMDriveIn.  I reached out about getting an opening slot and it turns out they decided to offer a compeition for local DJs to 'fight' for a spot.  So I did it!  I crammed 15 songs into this 30 minutes and offered up 2 originals and 2 mashups to personalize this mix a little bit more.  I hope you like it!

 

New Mix! You Don't Want To Miss This #TOTW 

I lead off this mix by playing one of the fan favorites off of my EP which is a track titled 'Giving Up'.  It leads off this mix, but mainly because I hope people dig the track and then go check out the amazing music video!

Track of the week (#TOTW): @ 40:30 Eli Brown - Desire

 

 

New Mix - Laced Radio #48

Thank You Guys! This Is Just For You 

It can be trying times for some people with the COVID-19 pandemic that's occuring around the world.  The music industry has taken a hit for sure... for both the artist and consumer.  But, I've found a way that we can all win!  Even tho I've had some gigs cancelled, I wanted to offer an opportunity to continue to share music with you.  I'm offering the opportunity to become a subscriber to exclusive mixes on my Mixcloud account.

What does this mean?  Well, you will ALWAYS get the Laced Radio show every week.  That is 100% free and my gift to you.  With a SELECT membership on Mixcloud I'm offering some exclusive benefits, to include exclusive mixes.  These mixes will come from my archived crates... some vinyl and mp3 classics from my favorite times of 80s, 90s, and early 2000s.  These mixes will include tracks that you wish you heard more of during the "Flashback at Noon" on your favorite radio station. 

Ask yourself... When was the last time you heard, What Is Love by Haddaway?  It's one of my favorites... and it's an example of what I will add to my exclusive mixes.

Summer Is Off To A Great Start! 

I had an amazing event this past weekend.  I played music that had a healthy mix of house and 'ratchet'.  It was beautiful and I had so much fun.  The cops shut us down right at 10PM (yeah, thanks Grand Hyatt!).  But it was a great event anyway.  I love what I do and am excited to get back into the nightlife! Stay happy, my friends.  :)
