In 1978, at the end of 6 years in
Visual Merchandising, I changed careers and started spinning
records in a small
club in Salt Lake City, Utah. Unbelievable, I know, but
the DJs were so bad I knew I could do a better job. In
1979 I left Utah to take a job spinning in Denver. I would
work on and off in Denver's Club scene for the next 5 years,
finally becoming essentially too politically incorrect,
as my musical tastes were always too broad for public consumption.
I'm a music purist, not a DJ Performer. I was never interested
in being ON STAGE, only interested in flawless music mixing.
In the years since, I have continued to program music on
tape for myself and a very small group of friends. Finally,
in 2004, I've begun a new era of mixed CDs.
As a DJ of more than 20 years, I've
learned how to order music in a new way that creates
a transcendental music
meditation, regardless of what kind of music I'm using.
Mixing various artists’ music together, I've learned
to speak with both a masculine and feminine voice, literally
speaking with a thousand voices. And using instrumentals,
I've learned to speak with a purely emotional voice. My
programming is harmonically correct, mixed in key with
super conscious lyric content, no discernible breaks, and
no commercial interruption. This allows the listener to
engage a meditative state and step into Timelessness.
many musical artists have discovered the DJ technique
of stringing songs together
with no space in between, mixed
CDs are still usually relegated to dance music. As dancing
is one of my personal Spiritual Practices, there will always
be dance music on my mixed CDs. Yet I have even broader
musical tastes now than I did in the past, as you may soon
see and hear.
So first and foremost, my mixed
CDs exist for promotional purposes. The musicians retain all copyrights. Please help
me support these artists by purchasing their music, as
there is always great music on a CD that I do not use.
I am incurring regular costs in blank CDs, cases, labels,
printing, as well as music,
which I purchase. And
there is much time involved in perfecting the mix and creating
the graphic design presentation. And there are packaging
and shipping costs as well. Due to recent developments,
I have finally achieved near perfection, yet as an artist,
I can barely afford to support my own habit.
mixed CDs are NOT for sale. Should you have an interest,
they are available on a donation basis only.
