>>_LIVE JUNGLE BANDS

Have you seen or heard a band performing jungle music live? I don't mean a live PA, but with traditional instruments: drum kit, bass guitar, etc. I've heard these groups exist, and am hoping to visit websites or see live shows to find a particularly good group. If you have suggestions, please contact me.

>>_WHERE'S AMBER?

Some of you have written recently to ask, "Where's Amber?" It's true, you haven't been seeing me out or hearing from me as much. There are a few reasons why, and--the good news--I plan to improve things soon.

The first reason I've been laying low is that, for the first time in four years, I returned to full time work. I'm often asked if DJing is the only thing I do, and the answer is "no." Very few DJs, globally, have that luxury.

For four years I worked part time, and the freedom allowed me to be a key player in some incredible projects like norcalDJMPA, Sister SF and Sister USA, :CODEtv, and :CODE at DNA Lounge (remember that?) Not to mention releasing my first track, writing for Remix Magazine, interning at XLR8R Magazine, serving as a resource for various books and movies, and much more. Since then, for all the right reasons, I have returned to full time work which, unfortunately, has kept me from being able to promote myself regularly the way I used to.

Secondly, I've decided to be a bit choosier about the gigs I take. After eight years (wow! eight already?!) I decided that, sometimes, I'm OK with turning a gig offer down. I have a good nose for the gigs that'll really be a blast, do something good for the scene (or a charity), or something else appealing.

A couple of months ago I added up about how many gigs I've done, and the total was over 300. That's a lotta mojo! I'm grateful for all of it, and looking back on when I started it's good to see how far I've come. I owe a lot to a lot of great people. But now, I'm just catching my breath. What's great is, I've found I lay it on doubly thick when I've had a good breather. It's been a nice break.

I plan to turn it up again in 2006. My first baby steps include posting here more often. More contests. More communication. There might even be a CD on the horizon *wink*.

You can help, if you like my sound please tell your favorite club, bar, or promoter about me. Pass on the word!

Rock!

>>_NIGERIAN DJ SCAM?

If you have an email account, then you've probably already seen the Nigerian email hoax. A Nigirian dignitary, military leader, or some-such-person promises you a princely sum of cash if you assist him/her in a transfer of funds.

Imagine my surprise when I got the DJ version!

"Hi i am a dj right in nigeria so i am calling for your financial aid assistance to me. and i will want you to assist me in any way either to offer me invitation to come over to u.s.a or to help me fianancially because we are brothers and sister in the name of music ( DJ ). thanks and be blessed."

Even if it is legit--boy, that's guts!
