This latest installment of EN DIRECT was from my birthday this past April. Anyone who's a performer can always feel eyes on them. At the third song, I feel eyes, I look up and who do I see? Joe from Gramaphone Records!! It shocked and surprised the hell out of me. I don't think he'd ever come out just to hear ME play. The other beautiful thing that happened was as I looked around, I saw young gay men and older gay men dancing to my beats! It felt like I was in Chicago and that always feels good! A good time was had by all.

Since moving to Austin six years ago, I had always been on the search for a good party. One that promoted togetherness, abundant love, nonstop laughter and most importantly, the boogie! Something that reminded me of Chicago, home. I heard about a local party, "Body Rock" and decided to check it out. The consistency of all that I had looked for, I finally found. You can't imagine my excitement when I was asked to play "Body Rock - A Tribute to Erykah Badu" with my D.A.M.E. sisters (DJ Mahealani & Queen Deelah) just ONE day before flying out to New York to open for Les Nubians! It was pure magic. Here is the final part of the live recording entitled, "EN DIRECT VOL 5".
Enjoy.

My Brooklyn trip was exactly what I needed! Thanks in part to my musical brother Itch13 who let me play his radio show, "Bloom Bap"! I'm not known for downtempo/lofi/reggae/hiphop, but I'm finding a stronger desire to play them more. Bloom Bap was the first to give me that moment in NYC. This was also my first time playing with Serato, too! Here's my solo set. The entire show is SICK! I like the directions Itch takes with his musical mind.

Bloom Bap streams LIVE every Tuesday from 2-4 PM EST at BBOXradio.com.

"EN DIRECT VOL 2" was recorded at Liquid in San Francisco, 2002. This was the first time I ever played outside of Chicago and I was super excited! I had been playing 3 years once this party happened and only played vinyl! San Francisco is one of those cities that has amazing crowds - they know the songs, sing along and never stop dancing. Playlist will be updated once I comb through my music and find the missing links.

Enjoy!
