>>_THANK YOU!

Thank you very much to everyone who came to my CD Release and Listening Party last night. What a blast! I hope to post pictures at some point.

>>_ORDER UP

If you would like to request a copy of "Live with Friends and Family", please email orderpromo@iamthedj.com for details.

>>_WHAT'S IN, WHAT'S OUT

Today at Amoeba Music in San Francisco I sold off CDs by DJ Krust, Sade and even Z-Trip's "Uneasy Listening"--which I found to be just that. I adore Z-Trip live.

I used the store credit from my sell-backs to buy: Guns 'n' Roses "Appetite for Destruction", Jane's Addiction "Ritual De Lo Habitual" (I played a dubbed tape to pieces in high school), and Fugazi "13 Songs".

"Sound like midterm heaven? It’s actually the final presentation for Instructor DJ Amber Nixon’s “Intermediate Turntable Technique” course...." Read more...
