The Eye Inside Vol I.


This is a look inside my growth as a DJ. I mix through tracks that I used to spin a lot into deeper styles that I am now learning about. I am trying to encompass what music and art really mean to me through the narration. So the music and the vocal interludes are equally important.

Please if you have the time. Listen to the whole mix,  identify a theme, connect it to your own life.

This is a link to the scene the narration is based on. This is from an HBO show entitled SIX FEET UNDER.  Lauren Ambrose who plays Claire Fisher on the show is getting a lesson on puling art out of yourself, and being original.  It really meant something to me and has stayed with me for years. The main piece I take from the show is……

“It’s what happens when exactly what is inside of you connects with what is outside of you. The Eye Inside.

Monday Morning MELLOWDIES

Dance Through The Door : A Funky Family

In my family music is central. It is always on, we have records everywhere and dance parties pop off quickly.

My sister lives downstairs from us, since we have a funky family as I am walking out of the house, on many occasions a set of  old school party jams is bumping. I mean old school party jams that make you want to stop what you are doing just get on down. And that is precisely what I usually do.

Short solo dance sets can save your life.

This mix is inspired by the funk that comes through their door, so….


Thanks Sabrina, Shawn and Pablo. This goes out to you.



Monday Morning Mellowdies

Once a month for 2 hours and 45 min I have to work at a place called the Park Slope Food Coop. If you want to live a happy peaceful life with the women of the Ramos family. You have to shop at the coop, period.

I’ll say that it is a beneficial hassle. The food is great and cheap and you meet some interesting  people, however keeping up with the work schedule can be annoying.

To help with the annoyance, I make playlists. My shift starts at 8 am in the child care room. It’s kind of empty at first, and really mellow. So my playlist reflects that feeling.

This is how my last shift sounded. Well at least the first hour.

8 am Monday morning.


Enjoy the music!
