Billie Eilish sums it up with her lyrics so well . .. the feeling of falling for someone you don’t want to fall i love with.
Halloween is my favorite time of year, when I can go outside and not be considered a freak!
Here are some fun events I’m DJing this October:
Thursday October 17th: Black Tie Power Couples Fundraiser at the Utah Museum of Modern Art, with honored guests from Utah Opera, Ballet West, and the Utah Symphony.
Saturday October 26th: Jason Olsen’s annual Utah Pride Center Halloween Fundraiser at SoundWell. More details to come, but here’s a video from the party 2 years ago, you don’t want to miss this!
The first Halloween I can remember was in Dallas back in ‘97. If it weren’t for everyone being dressed up I may not have had the courage to go out, and I never would have met Sol at my first Rave where I fell in love with electronic music and started forming the idea I wanted to DJ.
I was jet-lagged so out in the middle of the night walking around Amsterdam . . . ran into some cops and rather than telling me to go back to my hotel they took me around town taking photos.
If I had the time I would do this all day every day . . . mixing music together on the fly, coming up with new combos and experimenting. Some of this music is from when I started DJing at Gracie’s back in 2012 . . . some is more current, some older from when I used to go clubbing in London . . . a lot of this music is nostalgic and has special significance to me . . .
I have been playing the saxophone for a long time, and absolutely love playing the sax while I’m DJing. Nothing’s better than the energy of actual musical instruments, which is why I often DJ with a live drummer . . . DJing for me is also a form of improvisation . . . mixing different beats, samples and acapellas together, using DJ tools and effects to change and morph the music into something completely new. The other day I was DJing at a bar and some patrons insisted that I play more sax . . . here’s a little video from that night:
Sometimes I have the hardest time staying on track . . . I can only sit in one spot for so long before my mind wanders and I jump from one thing to another without finishing anything . . . do you have the same problem?
