DJ culture, events, and assorted advice with San Francisco-based DJ and producer, Amber.
>>_Mello Jungle Goodness
One more mp3 up. I'm delighted with this live recording from livedjs.com. Were I more of a jungle DJ this might be a tasty promo, but alas it's not what really gets me going in the DJ scheme of things.
Many thanks to Shane for lending me his jungle tracks time and time again to help fill out my breakbeat sets!
Listen here (see if you can spot the goth dark ambient tracks): http://www.cloudfactory.org/~frosting/mp3/livedjs_9-11-00.mp3
I want to take a moment to feature a killer local graphic artist (and awesome writer as well)--Patrick Farley. (Partick, I hope you dont' mind!)
To make a long story short, after asking Patrick for permission to use one of his images as the cover for my promo he said that just wouldn't do--and volunteered to custom design the cover for me. I want to publicly say thanks to him and point all of you to his amazing site:
Check out "Overheard @ the Rave" to read an uplifting and familiar tale set in our local campout haven--Willits, CA.

Click on the "DJ" button to see profiles of local, frequently featured

This technically isn't true, but I'm often a guest and a great admirer
of these drama-free and talented lady DJs. It's an honor to be a typo
among them. :)
As promised, here is the second of three mp3s I'm slowly adding for
>>_What is this?
This recording was made at livedjs.com on August 1st. I had completed
my promotional recording in late June, but this recording just felt
right and I quickly lost faith in that earlier recording (the third mp3,
to be posted soon.)
Well, this new recording won't be my new promo either! I mean it's good,
but is it 600 copies good? :) It's definitely mp3 good, though, I hope
you like it.
Yep, the rarely seen Amber booty is being released for your enjoyment.http://www.cloudfactory.org/~frosting/mp3/01_amber_live.mp3
100% live and unedited from http://www.livedjs.com
. Booty house and
breaks purely for the rump, not the brain. Enjoy.
Two more looong MP3s to be posted to this list, and later on my site, in
the next week or two.
If you don't have a media player or hate the one you have, try Sonique.
I've been really happy with it's performance and interface. http://sonique.lycos.com
