Okay... that's my bad for not sharing the recording of last week's Live Stream DJ set on Twitch. Here's what happened:
I wanted to test out the BeatportLINK (where you can stream music from Beatport instead of off the USB or Serato Library). And it turns out that when you do that on the Denon DJ Prime GO, you can't record the set. I recorded video of it and was tempted to put that on YouTube, but do I really wanna deal with a week full of copyright claims? Not really... LOL
So this Saturday, I will definitely record the set! Have no fear, fam... as long as I still have power here in Texas, I'll be live!
Here's the recorded mix from my live set that was streamed on Saturday February 6th. Each week I host a house party to bring you jams so we can party and vibe out together. I hope you enjoy this mix. See you next Saturday @ 8pm Central!
Here's the live mix from my Twitch stream on Saturday January 2nd. This mix is filled with all types of House! Check me out LIVE on Twitch every Saturday at 8PM Central https://www.twitch.tv/djunprotected
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!
I have fully transfered everything over to the new awesome and BADASS MacBook Pro 13"! Very excited about this (if you didn't already know, LOL).

Okay everyone... We are A GO! Truly blessed to be able to complete this upgrade. Believe in whatever you want, but I walk forward, blindly, and knowingly... that I am being protected and guided. Nothing about this upgrade and it's funding happened by accident. Have Faith, Love, and Happiness. Let's GOOO!
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!
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 :)
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!
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
Here is a recording of my live mix from Club Quarantine, sponsored by the Aztec Nation Facebook page. This mix is filled with Techno, Tech House, and some mash-ups with Red Hot Chili Peppers and ACDC. High energy and bass!
