Meet Stanley

I thought this was pretty cool. Meet Stanley

The people behind Digital Kitchen took a former player piano and turned it into a lean, mean, request taking machine.

His debut appearance was at the 2012 edition of the Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle, Wasgington. People (at the event and around the world via live stream) were able to tweet a song to Stanley and it would play it! Of course there’s much more behind the scenes, so check out the video and try tweeting Stanley yourself.

Lazy Sunday Episode 9

Lazy Sunday Ep. 9

Those who know me know that I love various types of music. I’ve been playing with the idea of creating a podcast that allows me to be a bit more experimental with my mixes and will hopefully introduce you to some new tracks. Lazy Sunday is not for the clubs; it’s to listen to while you’re relaxing, getting ready to head out for the night, or stuck in traffic…

After taking a month off, I’ve returned with the latest mix. Lazy Sunday will now be released the last Thursday of the month instead of the 2nd Thursday.

This mix is truly for those lazy Summer days we’ll be having soon enough.

Download, share, & enjoy!

H?SHTAG$ – Don’t Call It #PostDubstep

If you didn’t know by now, Red Bull Music Academy has always had a pulse with what goes on in the Indie/Underground music world. In addition to other video series their YouTube channel, they’ve started a new  series called Hastags which cover various facets of the Indie music scene. This is episode #2 in the series titled “Don’t Call It Post Dubstep” which covers music that has come out of the UK scene that was birthed from Garage & 2 Step but isn’t Dubstep (although people like to relate it to Dubstep). So far this is my favourite episode of Hashtags – Check it out

Track Of The Moment: Astronomar – Jocular

This song is by far one of my most asked about/Shazam’d songs. It’s such a bouncy & catchy beat that I usually use this track (among others) to get the dance floor started.

The track is off his “Y’all Know” EP released March 2012 on Top Billin Records. He recently revealed that, surprising to him, the title track has been the best selling track off that EP which is also the track he was the most unsure about. It’s an EP definitely worth checking out.

Don’t forget to listen to the interview I conducted as part of The Playground with Astronomar & his dope mix.
