It’s 2015! This month, I have put together a mix featuring artists you’ll most likely be hearing from this year. Coachella is just around the corner, and you may notice a lot of “electronic” acts that you have not heard before when the lineup is announced. I think Gorgon City—which played on the Do Lab stage at Coachella 2014—will be huge this year; keep an ear out for them. This month’s mix also features tracks from producer Ben Macklin, an artist I have really taken to recently. His music features lots of bass and tropical vibes featuring synths as well as pianos. It’s perfect for an enjoyable winter day in the desert. The term “EDM” (electronic dance music) has spread like fire and has been…

Dance, dance, dance! I wanted to make this month’s mix something fun and inviting. Over time, anybody can collect a plethora of tracks—and as a DJ, that’s amplified. I’ve recently been listening to a lot of tracks that I haven’t played in a while, and it’s nice to look back on tracks that inspired me. After collecting a few “classic” remixes, I decided to make this mix for you. It’s perfect for listening by the pool or by the fire. I hope you enjoy this holiday FRESH mix! By the way, my latest release, Pressure, is available now for free download via my SoundCloud page. Enjoy this month’s FRESH mix below! Penguin Prison, “Hang on to Your Love” (Sade Cover) Kill Me Softly featuring Jane…

This month’s mix features some of my favorite remixes—both recent and a bit older. Remixes take a track and give it new life. For example, consider the Flashback re-work of Kiesza’s “Hideaway.” The challenge when doing a remix is to maintain the character of the original track while injecting one’s own ideas. Some producers use samples of the original song to create a new version; others will add their own arrangements, using a multitude of instruments. Actually, the word “remix” doesn’t always cut it; a more suitable name in the modern game might actually be “reworks,” because the process involves breaking down a track and re-creating it. This month, I’m hosting “FRESH Sessions LIVE” at The Hood Bar and Pizza in Palm Desert on Saturday,…

This month, we’re celebrating one year of “FRESH Sessions,” and I have to thank all of you who have tuned in since the start. When I began writing this column, I wanted to share my love of electronic music with the valley. As the months have gone on, I have evolved as a DJ—and, of course, my sound has evolved as well. I love the feeling dance music and house music give me. You can dance, be free, shake about—and when you look around, everyone in the room is doing the same thing. There are no pretentious attitudes and no negative judgments—just “good vibes,” as I like to say. This column has evolved from simple words with a mix to live shows. This month, we…

This month, I have decided to make a mix featuring some of my favorite tracks at the moment. While keeping my usual deep-house sound, I’ve developed a playlist that represents my favorite “vibes.” I love getting lost in a song—and the great thing about being a DJ is you get to do that over and over again, while sharing that feeling with those around you. Come experience this feeling with me! The Independent is sponsoring—along with my new label, Fresh Session Records—FRESH Sessions Live at 9 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 20, at The Hood Bar and Pizza, 74360 Highway 111, in Palm Desert. This show will feature CoffeeBlvckk, Synthetix and myself! There’s no cover; 21 and older only, please. We’re hoping this is just the first…
