I’ll be playing alongside the Melt crew at the Lunchbox on September 14th! Myself, as well as a handful of southwest USA sectors will be providing direct support for UK Drum & Bass producer Furney.
I have some very exciting news! I’ve been booked to close out Full Moon Festival this month. This is easily our biggest recurring local-fueled music festival, and I’ve been dying to play on Timothy Heights fantastic PA. Timothy is a very talented audio engineer, and he has arguably the best sounding system in the state. This will be a fantastic opportunity for me to give downtown Phoenix a taste of what I consider to be some of the hottest techno out, on one of the hardest hitting systems we have to offer. 50,000 watts of BASS!
We’ve been hosting a stage at this festival for quite a while now, and previous dates have seen us bring the likes of Dustin Zahn, Developer, and a booking for Ø [Phase] that sadly fell through due to travel delays. Needless to say, this is going to be an extremely fun night and I cannot wait to give those subwoofers a nice workout.
My set from this weekend down in mexico is now available on soundcloud. This was a very challenging weekend but at the end of the day we had a blast and threw a fun party. Some lessons were learned, and if we have the opportunity to do it again we will do it even better next time (with proper monitors and decks)!
Hermosillo is a young city in regards to techno. The promoters that we worked with were very eager, extremely accommodating, and I see this translating into quick growth for their techno scene. I can’t wait to see what is in store for the state of music south of the border this year.
I’ve been invited to play an all techno event in Hermosillo at the end of the month. The event is being curated by our very own “Aisle 5” aka Chris, and is titled “Fixated”. This is a step in a new direction for Phoenix locals and hopefully will open the door to more techno events in the region and beyond. I’m very excited for this opportunity to represent the southwest with some proper heat, free from the usual club restrictions that I feel are so prevalent here in the states. This will be a fantastic night full of variety, plenty of melodic stuff mixed in and a warehouse after party to boot!
We will be driving down in a big group, feel free to get in touch if you wish to join in the festivities. The trip should be very affordable, hotel is under 30 USD with our discount. And don’t forget that authentic Mexican food south of the border!

This Tuesday I had the pleasure of performing my debut set at Fat Tuesday on Mill Avenue in our Downtown Tempe college district. The area is packed full of night clubs, bars, and social areas. I opened up for the Techno Snobs bi-monthly Underground Tuesday event to a full house. It was a very instructive, humbling, and enjoyable experience to say the least.
I want to thank everyone that came out to show me love and support on this night, as you all know I was EXTREMELY nervous – but that all seemed to vanish once I looked up and saw the entire dance floor moving to the beat. I’m happy with the performance overall, even with the small mishaps due to nerves and being completely unfamiliar with the equipment.
This was one of the most enjoyable memories I have, and I can’t wait for the next opportunity to share some of the music I love with new and old friends. The video is available via YouTube, the set has also been uploaded to SoundCloud with download enabled. See links below, and enjoy!
