Parts 1 and 2 of My Final Radio Show!

Over the last two years, it’s been a huge pleasure being able to play all of my favorite tunes over the radio. It’s only now, sitting here  back at home in LA while browsing my library and grabbing some awesome new tunes that I realize just how much I’m going to miss going on air every week. But at least I’ll still have the blog. For those of you who listened, thank you! As I said all too much on air, I hope you enjoyed.

For my last show, I wanted something special. The Friday before the show, I gathered a few of my favorite friends to see both Maceo Plex and Maya Jane Coles for our last “big night out.” It was the perfect way to end our college journey: at an outdoor downtown location with views over the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges. After the party, we walked back home through New York’s financial district, completely deserted at 3AM, walking through the city liked we owned it. I wanted my last radio show to be a continuation of that night.

Kai did what he does best (besides hugging), playing deep and uplifting house that would pull even the deepest sleepers out of hibernation and into the summer air. For myself, I wanted to keep it simple: play my favorites old and new. Thank you Kai. Thanks for listening. Thank you friends. And thanks for making these past years unforgettable.

New Chill Out Mix: Sprezzatura

I know I’ve been quite slow with new posts, but coming back to the US + starting work has made things slightly more difficult. Hopefully this mix makes the delays worth it! The tracklist was chosen mostly by my brother Beau (inspired partly by Robag Wruhme’s RA Podcast). Thanks to Smoochey for introducing me to the term. My simplest of mixes, hope you enjoy.
Sprezzatura: an Italian word originating from Castiglione’s The Book of the Courtier, where it is defined by the author as “a certain nonchalance, so as to conceal all art and make whatever one does or says appear to be without effort and almost without any thought about it.”

Old Find: The A to Z of Electronic Music

Back in the old days when I first started this blog on blogger, my first real post was “The A to Z of Electronic Music You Should Know.”  Now that I’m knowledgeable, mature and wise (and everything else that comes with a beard), I will call this “Alphabetized Songs That I Used To Like So Much, But Still Do, Mostly.” Some good gems in here. I hope you enjoy.

Put this compilation on and try not to dance. That is all.
