2012 Mid-Year Update

Lack of posts… I know. Guilty as charged. I’ve been extremely busy with a bunch of new projects. For one, I finally finished school. I now have a B.A. in Computer Systems with a Minor in Recording Arts from CSUSB. I’ve also been producing a bunch of new tracks, both for Cold Busted, as well as a new label I’m working with called Journees Music – and one of their sublabels Shotcallers Music. I’ve also been writing a bit for an online magazine called Igloo Mag. Finally, I’ve been starting to book DJ gigs once more. I was recently featued on a KUCI FM radio program called Riders of the Plastic Groove. The following is a video stream archived of my set as well as an audio archive that can be streamed or downloaded from Mixcrate.

2011 Mojo Rising Year in Review

2011 turned out to be an eventful year for me, and I’m humbled and grateful for the opportunities that have been provided. After being approached by an old DJ acquaintance who now runs the fantastic downtempo/chillout label Cold Busted, to remix a track for the label, I have now completed several projects including a couple of remixes, an original track for a label compilation, a mix CD (Stone Cold Busted 2) and an entire LP entitled Seven Wonders.

Two very nice reviews of the album were written, one by the e-zine Igloo Magazine and one by the blog This Is Why We Dance.

TIWWD Review

One of the projects involved a remix of an artist from Japan who goes by the name Blue in Green (yes, as in Miles Davis). This young producer is a jazz and bossa Nova guitarist who delves into jazz influenced hip hop and his music is truly remarkable. I was very pleased to have the opportunity to remix one of his tracks which you can preview here:

I’m looking forward to another productive year in 2012 and want to wish anyone who visits this little corner of the interwebs a wonderful and happy New Year. Here’s a little drum & bass mix I worked on over the holidays which I would love to share as a token of appreciation to those who visit and/or show support.

August Update

The past couple of months have been extremely busy for me, which explains the low post frequency and the relative lack of tech oriented posts, which I know many of my visitors enjoy. I’m hoping to get back to some technology oriented posts shortly, but I’ve been working hard at producing my first full musical release, which I’m optimistic will get released within the next couple of months, and this has been taking up most of my available free time.

I would like to take a quick minute to post the following Beatport player which is tied to all of the releases I currently have out on BeatPort.
