Live in Los Angeles, 2014-11-07 - with DJ Bolivia

I played at a club in Los Angeles this past Friday night, a place called The Other Door in North Hollywood. The event was the launch party for an app called Cuddli, which some of my friends have created. I'll post more details here about Cuddli once it's out of beta testing. Anyway, the weather was warm, the show was fun, and I recorded it, so you can check it out.






This particular mix features two different styles of music. The first hour is mostly tech-house, which I usually play. However, I experimented with electro for the second half of the set, which is something that I don't typically play. Electro is a good match for the local music scene there. I was running through a Yamaha traditional sound console for a mixer, and it was located underneath the counter of the booth, so it was a pretty unconventional set-up. Due to the layout, I only had easy access to the bass and mid EQ knobs, and there were no effects available on board, so you won't hear a lot of creative effects in this mix. But the recording is clean and sounds good, which is what matters. We had a slight technical difficulty with recording the first minute of my set, but I fixed that with some DAW magic. The sound guy at the club, Scott Fuchs, was very competent and great to work with.

Another really cool thing about this show is that one of my friends from California (Carl Schwenk) was the opening DJ. He and I talked about DJ'ing a year ago, and he sent me a message a few months later that he was learning to DJ, but I hadn't realized how seriously he was taking it. I guess that some of the videos on my YouTube page helped inspire him and get him started. Anyway, he played well, and did a great job. It was great to see him, and I hope I get a chance to hear him again.

Most of the music is pretty new, although you'll notice that I played one older Green Velvet track near the beginning, to set up the context for the "Voicemail" track half an hour later. I should also point out that if you know these tracks well, you'll notice that I bring a lot of them in and out of the mix more than once, which is probably most noticeable on things with vocal samples like "What You Think," and on tracks like "People Of The Land."
