…back to reality.

I had a marvelous time at Floating World this weekend. I’d like to say a HUGE thank you to the NYC Fetish Tribe, who put on the AfterCare pool parties on Friday and Saturday night. We had an idea going in what we wanted, and as is my usual case, I adapted to the mood of the crowd. Friday’s party was intimate but not too crowded. There were a lot of people playing – think water volleyball in birthday suits – and that night’s set reflected the mood. Saturday’s set was more crowded (everyone was ready for some after care at that point) and hewed more to the original intent – sultry, smooth and relaxing. Suitable music for floating in the water or getting a massage poolside. I recorded both sets, and need to do some editing (a program hang after the laptop upgrade and different hard drive speed on the first night) and then I’ll post the sets here.

I got so many compliments and happy smiles that I’ll be riding this high for a while. One of my favorite aspects of being a live DJ is when I feel like I’ve connected with people and helped them enjoy the occasion. This time I definitely got all that and made some wonderful friends, too (Skully gives the most awesome squeezes!). There are likely to be more parties like this in the future, and I look forward to those opportunities. As I learn about them, I’ll share them with you.

Thanks again to everyone who made my weekend so amazing. Especially the one sending me love from half a world away and sharing my Sunday sunrise. The world looks amazing with you in it.

Yes, things are happening here in Muse-land. I’ve got two gigs during the Floating World event.  I’ll be playing downtempo/chillout sets as part of the “AfterCare” parties from 3-5A on August 22 and August 23 (late night Friday and Saturday).  For a long time now, I’d hoped to find a way to combine my fascination with fetish and my love of music and being a DJ.  This is the first chance I’ve had to put my own stamp on an event, and I feel like it’s a perfect fit.

This event is closed to registration – they actually sold out all 1200 admissions (yes, it’s that big) two weeks before it started.  Sorry!  But if this goes well, it might lead to something else in the future.  If you’re going to be there, some see me in the pool area of the Sheraton (private party open to Floating World attendees only) and enjoy the laid-back, lovely grooves.

Don’t forget, I’ve got Atman – a DJ Muse Mix for you to listen to as you’re going about the last of your summer.  It’s great music for an evening relaxing on the back porch or with your sweetie.  Personally, it makes me think of Germany.  *smile*

As always – thanks for listening!

…I’ve actually finished a new mix.

I’ve also got a new gig, but I’ll save that for tomorrow.

I realized today that it’s been a very long time since I sat down (or stood up, really) and recorded a new mix. Today there is a new mix for you to listen to, and I’m very happy with it. Consider it a gift, a meditation on the way life is complex and beautiful and how the life force that animates all of us is inside to be found if only we’ll be aware of it. If you don’t want to be so hippy about it, then you can just say “enjoy life.” I’d like to thank Todd for reminding me that life is meant to be lived with open arms and heart.

Enjoy the music!

So this summer has flown by. Last night I had a wonderful party at my house with friends. The Cantab’s been wonderful fun as always, and I’m exposing people to new music every week.

In the next week I will finish a new mix – be sure to check back for your fix of warm grooves for a perfect summer afternoon with your sweetie.

Now get out there and enjoy your summer!

Welcome to my new website…

Yes, if you’ve even been on in the last long while, you’ve probably noticed something. Specifically, that I haven’t really changed a thing in a while.  But that’s changing – starting now!

Present status: working on mixes, collaborating, and doing the duties as DJ for the Boston Poetry Slam at the Cantab Lounge which allows me to get my jazzy-weird mix on with my writer friends every Wednesday.

Take a look around and download/listen to some mixes if you’re so inclined. Drop me a line if you have something you want to ask or are looking for a crazy, strange and wonderfully eclectic DJ to play your unique event.  I’d love to hear from you!
