Movements of Happiness

Jon has posted a few of his sets from percussionlab on the blog earlier (https://muzikigan.wordpress.com/2010/05/13/mixes-mixes-whos-got-the-button/). I thought I’d try my hand at playing and recording a dj set. It comes in at just under an hour, with a mix of dancy stuff, electro-indie and other related joyous musical nuggets.

Mixes, mixes, who’s got the button?

I’ve had the greatest time being able to share some of my more exciting sets on percussionlab and soundcloud, two very well put together music platforms.

Recently I submitted one of these sets to a promoter for an interesting arts & music event coming up in Jackson, Michigan in July. It is my understanding that I will be playing ambient musics with fog as a backdrop. I am really excited for this opportunity and wanted to share the set with you all. So, without further ado,  ((( Ambient in April ))) and some others from earlier.    Indie Dance/NuDisco   –   Amps in Universally Hectic Areas

Stream, download and Enjoi.





OUR COMMUNITY OF THE DEVOTED & OBSESSED

4 04 2010

Sometimes when I’m scouring the interwebs for nu musics or searching for yet another space to put up my mixes for folks to download, or just listen to to get it out in the wide world , I come across some shiny sites that need attention and love.  Some are slick little upstarts needing just the right attention from  folks like us. Others have plenty of funding and public support, but have mediocre music.  I’m going to take this post and roll with the ideas I’ve been thrown at lately and share them with you all.

First is Soundcloud. A slick little german site focusing on a community of Dj’s and producers all over the  world with all levels of skill. The best part about them is their ability to follow what working right now and rolling with it. For instance, you can create a free account, upload tracks of your music or mixes and connect it to your facebook profile to let folks know you also make awesome music along with your rad movie & music taste.

Next is PERCUSSION LAB. Started in Brooklyn by a collective of DJ’s and their production teams, these guys know what this scene has to offer and give you a taste of each and every genre out there. I have an account with both of these sites and enjoy them on a regular basis on various levels. I hope you all enjoy this post and the nu musics from my March charts.
