Beats & Pieces

February 2020 With the longest January in recent memory (or is that every January?) coming to a close, I think we’re all glad to put that one in the rearview mirror.  In Vancouver, we spent most of it in a see saw battle between blizzards and torrential rain.   After the liquid deluge of last […]

Hibernation?

January is usually a nice and mellow start to the year after an action-packed holiday season capping off with the biggest party of the year on NYE.  December 2019 was probably my busiest month ever and lucky for me January has turned into a bit of a beast too.  The usual onslaught of gigs as […]

Alternity 2019

Being a DJ, I obviously have an affinity for beat-based music.  It’s our bread-and-butter.  I grew up on a solid diet of hip hop and when I first ventured out into the world and began to fend for myself. I discovered house music, techno and drum and bass.  But like most DJs, my taste in […]

Strobe Light

Lately, I’ve been spending a good chunk of my listening hours digging deeper into the tech side of house.  I’ve long been a fan and love the lane this style cuts through both sonically and energy-wise.  When you get the right crowd who shares your appreciation, good times ensue.  I need more of this life […]

Beats & Pieces

Say what you want about social media; that it’s an incredible waste of time, it’s like the McDonald’s of reading, it’s toxic psychological ramifications could be the downfall of humanity, but it does have one redeeming quality: it’s great for crowd-sourcing. I recruited some heads in my network for some help on this latest instalment. […]

The Block

I gotta level with ya. I’ve got a bunch of half-written stuff in the can here but am having trouble pulling the trigger and finishing them off. Some are pretty long and took a bit of research while others are good chunks of stuff I haven’t yet got the guts to release. It’s been a […]

Beats & Pieces : October 2019

First off, I should give some props out to the super dope homeboy James Landau, who gave birth to another fresh AF instrumental project called ‘Blueberry’, late last month. His previous two works in the series ‘Sabbatical’ and ‘Sentiments’ both are solid moody numbers worth checking out, but pop this bad boy on get a […]

Sober October

Sober October.    What are its origins?  Where did it come from?  Who first coined the phrase?   Why are they doing this to us!!!!?    Ah yes, it’s that joyous time of year once again where we (some of us more than others) try to give up the sauce or the smoke or the (insert unhealthy vice here) and […]

Beats & Pieces: September 2019

Beats & Pieces: September 2019 Time for another installment of Beats & Pieces, featuring some random tracks that have blipped onto my radar over the past month.  I like to use this monthly piece to feature some songs that don’t necessarily fit into some of my other posts that feature choice cuts from the world of […]

Ras Kass

When word dropped down through the grapevine that John Austin was gonna be in town for a show and album release party for Soul On Ice 2, I was both stoked and a little bummed out because I knew I was already booked myself on the night he was playing in Vancouver with WC.  There must […]

Summerset: Part Deux

Saturday provided an eclectic evening of music that rolled down the Fraser River till well after dark. The picturesque backdrop of Fort Langley’s wooden walls, the birthplace of B.C., made for a the perfect venue to represent some of the area’s best and brightest, with JP Maurice and The Matinee setting the tone with equally […]

Summer Sounds

Contrary to what I’ve heard around the block, the summer is not over yet peeps.  Do these people know the first day of fall is still a month away? Get that nonsense outta here!  Now, I might be a bit biased because I’ve finally found some breathing room between now and a solid run of shows at […]

Peace Out 2019

With 2019 about to enter the record books, I sit here reflecting on what a glorious year it was.  Well, not really glorious, but it was good enough and definitely not as bad as some previous annual stretches I’ve had to endure.  In the midst of putting together the last big event of the year, […]
