long time, no post!

A lot has happened in the past few days!

One especially big happening was MonteRave! I'm REALLY sleepy right now, but before I head to sleep, I may as well share the photos from the night (which was INSANE, but in a good way).

I uploaded all of the photos I took that night to my Flickr. Have a look there, or feel free to click through this slideshow!

I'll try to update more after I wake up!

my first step towards world domination: appearing in a rave flyer! =P

Quick lil update:

Here's the flyer for MonteRave (which is Friday, January the 25th for those not paying attention).

(click on the flyer to see it in its original size)

MonteRave, January 25th, 2008

It's still pretty surreal to see my name and photo in a party flyer... especially up there with guys who've spun at huge clubs and massives for years... I can't wait to see how far (and how quickly) I can make it successfully as a DJ! I wonder if promoters, other DJs, clubbers, and ravers will accept the fact that I use the M-Audio Torq Xponent + MacBook combination to spin rather than using a pair of Pioneer CDJs or Technics 1200s (with at least Serato, if not actual vinyl). Well, that's really another topic that I can carry on for a while, so I'll do that in another post.

Keli did a nice job with the design, and I'm glad she actually found a pretty decent photo of me to use for the flyer. I kinda joked with Mick that he and I almost look like the same person in the photos. ^^

On my next day off, I'm gonna have to buy a bunch of CDRs and paper CD envelopes to burn a bunch of demo mixes to hand out after my set.

Oh, speaking of Technics, have you guys heard that Panasonic (Technics' parent company) will have all of its sub-brands (Technics, National, etc) be renamed "Panasonic?" So in a couple years, all new Technics 1200 turntables will be manufactured as Panasonic 1200s. I think.

my next DJ set: MonteRave! Friday, January 25th

Matt (Maitre-V) and Trevor (Omega) invited me to spin at their next party! I found out last night that I'll fortunately get that night off!

For anyone new to my blog, download some of my previous mixsets to get a good idea of what I'll be spinning that night! Oh, and btw, remember that eBreaks set I made a couple months back? I finally chopped it up into individual tracks (as opposed to being one continuous 80 minute mp3), so re-download it, yea?
