Notes From Coachella

this is text copied from a message board-

well. to say it in a more "PC" way, I was the first DJ/Artist to play at coachella this
year, 2009. it was the pre-party for the campers.
to put it short, i rocked it! I had about 3 different sets lined up.


i did the electro set, there was a CD playing before i went on and it
was some old minimal house stuff.we had to wait for Paul McCartney to be done
with sound check. so there was just music playing low then they turned it up,
people started dancing, so i just kept the vibe going.
sorry to toot my own horn, but it was a great experience, and I rocked
the hell out of Torq! trigger finger and all, and people looking at
the macbook of course, to see that I wasnt using serato :)
big up to the guys from Temple of Boom, they were running
"The Dome" at coachella.Sam XL Vs XXXL & Pablo Hassan
killed it on the dub step!

i will post my playlist later. indy rock dance remixes,
new electro house, old school house, and old school techno.

there is a bunch of pics at this link


it was alot of fun, this is actually the second time for me at coachella.
i DJ'ed for MC supernatural back in 2001 or 2002, we opened for the roots.
now, that was something else, main stage action that time, man-o-man!
that was huge! i was all records then!

this time all i had to bring was my laptop, torq, trigger finger, and records.

part 2 - friday night afterhours!

i dont usually record my live sets, i DJ quite often so alot of stuff
turns into a blur after awhile. i played alot shows in the last 20
years, from little garages to huge things like coachella. maybe i
should start recording my live sets. i would go back and make a
"cover" mix of the playlist but that wouldn't be near as cool
and kind of strange. i do have mixes online and free to download though.
i have always just enjoyed DJing and never really tried to become
a big name DJ, i just love DJing and rocking crowds. now i think
im going to step my game up. im a side show superstar, to put it

so, i went back on friday night to DJ. i did 2 sets,
the first one was reggae, the second one was electro house
or whatever you call it. they had to clear everybody out of
the concert before we could start the after hours, we didn't
get started till after 1am and went till after 4am. this was
a afterhours for campers only. as soon as i dropped my first song
they opened the gate and people came running to the dome.
it was crazy, hundreds of people running towards me screaming
while i DJ. what a experience, i haven't got much sleep this weekend.
actually, Busy P and his crew were supposed to do the after hours, they
didnt want to hang around, so i got to rock it again with Big Sam from Temple of Boom.
i guess one of the guys from daftpunk was there too, oh well.
