I would like to start off by thanking all of the Coachella Valley Independent readers who have ever taken the time to check out my little column here. For almost two years, I’ve been allowed to fill this space with my mixes and minor rants.
I have recently been inspired by our music scene to the point where I truly want to develop something in it: I have started a record label and music collective called DuneDisco. The idea is to connect the Coachella Valley’s music fans, from listeners to DJs, with each other—and the broader music world. Our desert is unique and a perfect place to grow a wonderful music scene. Every month, we will feature a DuneCast mix and offer some insight into our local scene. This may include spotlights on local artists, musicians or writers—anyone with a connection to the growing scene. Musically, the idea is to bring you the best in house and dance music, with an emphasis on the unknown and upcoming.
Check out the first DuneCast below. Enjoy!
