- Earthfest 2013


I performed on the second stage at Earthfest 2013 just after noon on Saturday and treated it as a golden opportunity to share my evolving interest in deep and funky daytime house music. As usual, I did not plan any mixes in advance; I had one track in mind to start with and built a story from there based the dance floor and the weather (sunny at the beginning, raining by the end). Given that this is a live recording there are noticeable imperfections to the mixing and flow, but I had a lot of fun sharing music that moves me and my hope is that my passion for this music shines through!
