Opening for Carlo Lio was a great experience. I had to think and research well for my set, him being a versatile international talent whose techno style varies, yet its always on point. Thoughts: how do I want to start steering the "ship"? What music should I put in my digi crate? I m usually armed with about 80 new tracks for any major event, but I didnt know what to focus on this time: I felt the music had to be techno, but not too fast (duh - I m opening)but headlining the last couple times I caught my ears wired toward peak hour energy material that was not going to work. Other decision: shall I play american or european techno, what to have as a back up in case the crowd is not ready for the brand new releases from just days and weeks ago? shall I have something familiar - should I sneak in deeper stuff? or how about some minimal or acid tracks? Words vs no words ( I prefer zero vocals but wanted to push my boundaries a bit) Will Carlo be able to link in and continue the "story" us opener started? I felt I did alright ;) Love thinking about music, the audience, bringing new underground stuff to the table, and ponder about the crowds reaction. I feel at one point if its done right the audience and the DJs think as "one", vibe together - and thats the BESTEST feeling ever for a musician like me. Thanks for all who came out to the event! If you are on Resident Advisor, I would greatly appreciate your support by "favoriting" / " liking" me as one of your artists. The RA website has been lately the go-to source for many talent buyers, club owners, and promoters - hence the need to boost those numbers a little bit ;)

San Francisco is famous of its after hours parties. Had the pleasure to spin 7am at Monroe. It was one heck of  morning, since I had to play just 4 hours before that at Public Works for Crystal Method. I often like such crazy sets, because i m totally relying on the subconcious and play the best, wickedest, most fun sets.

Closed out the night after Las Vegas homies from "Techno Taco Tuesday" (Lance and Tino) headlined the MNML:FUN party. What is MNML:FUN? Its a monthly techno event in San Francisco, independently ran by 3 good friends who have no help from sponsors, major nightclubs, promoters - they do it all their own. The party books quality techno and minimal DJs that are from their respectable local communities and who are known to take pride in their craft and track selections. Every 3rd friday - come on by Underground SF in San Francisco to party with us. ;)
Had to stop when the lights came on at the club, so the set is not quite an hour.
