D.Dan @ Scarlet Room

My good friends over at the Techno Snobs have invited me to open their first residency night over at the Scarlet Room in Downtown Phoenix. Starting on December 20th, they will be hosting techno once a week on the massive Turbosound stacks upstairs above the famous Monarch Theater.

This venue should be a great fit for their vibe; low ceilings, proper point-source PA, and a nice intimate setting. For the first event, they’ll be bringing techno talent D.Dan from Berlin. D.Dan is one of the first DJs I’ve felt “compatible” with in terms of intensity, pace, and style of mixing – so I am very excited to see him perform.

I’ll be starting the night off with my signature extra-terrestrial blend of ambient and techno, going from 930pm-11pm. Tickets are available now via Resident Advisor here:

Fixated in Mexico

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.
