It’s been a while since I posted on my blog. I’ve been sidetracked by life and my new job. I love it when everything seems to come together, which is why I decided to post this mix today. At my new job I write code all day and listen to a lot of house music. [...]
DJ LaJedi is a very interesting person who I personally have a lot of respect for. Her DJ moniker, LaJedi, (pronounced “la heady”) was a name that was given to her by native guides and travel companions when she backpacked through Mexico, near the seas, pyramids and pueblas. It is the Mexican translation of Jedi. [...]
I came across this today while I was cruising for babes on the internet Her name is Breezee One and apparently she’s single, so if you’re out there Breezee hit me up. Cause your inbox is full. And I want to ride bikes and hold hands with you. And you fucking rock!
For most of the time that I have lived here in Detroit, I have not had a car. This seems to blow a lot of people’s minds who see this city as being the antithesis to the car-less lifestyle. After all, we are the Motor City, home of the Ford Model T and the Chevy [...]
Fuck those capitalist pigs! This WRIF Rock Girl contestant is good with the socialism, and that’s why you should vote for her
The first time I saw this group was at a rave in Corktown, very close to where old Tiger’s Stadium used to be. Those were the days. Speakeasies and breezy evenings 92 motorolla Pagers by Faze Blue le’goon
A lot has happened since I moved to Detroit. I recently moved from the Leland to Corktown, and have taken on a new venture, but let’s rewind back to September, just before I took the leap and moved into the city…
I met my roommate, Brian Mulloy, at TEDxDetroit last year. He is a Detroit historian, and his presentation was the story of how the French laid the foundation for Detroit. The French intended for Detroit to be a eutopian society where they would live together with the native Americans and learn from each other in [...]
Kevin Saunderson starts out with a brief history of electronic music, followed by a complete live set, recorded on BBC 6.
Michigan Central Station is right down the street from me, and despite the blight that it has become, is still one of the most beautiful structures in Detroit. It’s been abandoned for more than twenty years, a token remnant of the once thriving railroad industry that was pulverized by Eisenhower to make room for the [...]
I’ve been exploring into Lil’ Louis since I found out he was headlining DEMF and found this mix of his from 1992. Definitely looking forward to hearing him at Movement.
It’s my birthday again, and while not as monumental as my big 3-0, it’s not going to keep me from giving you a great show and stuffing your mouth with cheddar bay biscuits from Red Lobster on Sunday, December 4th at The Old Miami. I chose to bring back Tunde Olaniran this year, who has [...]
If you don’t know already, I was recently chosen by Chevy to represent Detroit in the Chevy SXSW Road Trip Challenge. Since no road trip is complete without a mixtape, I decided to make our own exclusive mix just for the trip! This mix is a lot more chill than what you’ve come to expect [...]
The team and I have been working real hard for the past week on this video about Detroit for our road trip challenge web site. The idea was to create some unique content for the site, and talk about all of the things we love about Detroit. It turned into a short documentary-style video full [...]
I am proud to once again be a part of Ignite Detroit, which is bringing the sequel to The Sound Board at Motor City Casino Hotel on April 14th, 2011. If you’re not familiar with Ignite events, it is a public speaking competition that is intended to start the flow of ideas in the community. [...]
Let me tell you about the hardest working DJ in Detroit. He goes by the name DJ Psycho. Over the span of his long career, he has managed to stay ahead and stay on top, and is still one of my favorite turntablists around. He is known for his ability to blend many forms of [...]
Just wanted to take a second to congratulate D. Allie (@DAllie) and Eddie Logix (@EddieLogix) on a successful Kickstart campaign. 127 donations were made for a total of $5,288, giving them enough donations to get their new album off the ground. The album release party will be on March 25th at The Magic Bag in [...]
Every Tuesday, tweeters from all over Metro Detroit gather at various cafes to meet, network and discuss relevant issues about the digital marketplace. It’s called Tweetea. I’ve been a part of the community since the very beginning, and have found it to be very rewarding. Tuesday, February 1st, 2011 presented somewhat of a challenge for [...]
