Another year has passed and its time to give thanks to all of you. Thank you for supporting the music, this web site, my crazy rants, and everything. Skateboarding into work this morning I realized just how fortunate I am. Golden light shimmering across the blacktop, the wind at my back and not much of a care in the world. Thank you to my family for raising me to do whatever I liked (as long as hit was scene through an artist lens). Thank you to my friends for always being around in good time and bad. Thank you to my fans for making me want to dig just a bit deeper in my crates of wax. Finally thank you to my wife for your love support it means the world to me.
I will leave you with this final bit. Dream of a future that is bright, new and beyond what your can imagine. Take that dream, and add a touch of your musical roots, then give it to the people. Because the world and America needs a new dream, not one of sustaining and surviving but one of NEW fantastic heights.
Don't live in the lines media and the public have painted for you. PAINT OUT SIDE THE LINES!
Keep Smiling. One and All

My first time in Detriot was in 2002 and then later in 2004 for the Detriot Electric Music Festival (DEMF) that later became MOVEMENT. But I feel this video helps to but my experiences in Detriot in to perspective.

"Even if you don’t live in Los Angeles, you’ve probably heard of KCRW, the legendary radio station there. You may NOT be as familiar with all the great record shops in the area, but KCRW wants to take care of that too, so they created this little movie, to introduce you."

"Successful DJing is all about bums on seats (well, feet on dancefloors, actually). The audience is an essential half of DJing. If you want any kind of success, you take this to heart and never lose sight of it. It’s woven into what a DJ does.
So where does that leave playing the music you like? Where does that put your tastes, your musical aspirations? How can you fit these things around keeping an audience happy? How and to what extent you do this depends on where you fall in “The DJ Quadrant”…"

I would agree find music that you love, its should be your personal mission to sort through all the music that you have access to and "program" an evening of listening enjoyment that would make you freak out on the dance floor.
I watched a youtube video from a trusted source (briansredd) the other night that reminded me of this.
A large system and happy dancers will smooth over the less then flawless DJ mixing short falls. But their is no escape from bad music selection.
Now by no means am I saying only play commercial stuff, but what I'm saying is that every track you put down should be the next best thing. You should be excited about the next track, heck you should be just bearly holding yourself together with excitement for what your doing. If you feel it, then your crowd will be feeling it. (That is unless your playing hardcore techno for an old persons home, then again I'm sure their are places in London & SF were that might go over pretty well.)

"A psytrance-playing baby DJ puppet act called DJ Mini Mix is the handiwork of London’s Bart Delpech. Mini Mix has been performing at the Kingston Shopping Centre in London and in Amsterdam for several years."
