It’s time for August’s FRESH Sessions, the 11th installment in this series! I’d like to again thank JF//Discord for his guest FRESH Sessions mix last month. While I love offering people some of the best known and unknown current dance music, I also love sharing the work of other DJs. In the minds of some, there’s a stigma associated with modern DJing. Many see us as mere “party people” who like to play as loud and as fast as possible. This is not true. Yes, we all like to “get down”—but not in the same way. For example, I appreciate some theatrics in a DJ set. Creating different sounds with someone else’s work is exciting. This month, I try to do just that, with the…

FRESH Sessions this month features a guest mix from JFDiscord, aka Jeremy Ferguson. JFDiscord offers up a deeper, slightly darker side of dance, while managing to create a unique yet familiar sound. Jeremy works with an eclectic mix of music, ranging from metal to deep house: Thanks to his mixing skills and his keen ear, he can marry various styles effortlessly. I have been following JFDiscord for quite some time. Our music scene in the valley has had its ups and downs, yet he has been a mainstay. We DJs can sometimes get stuck inside certain genres—but Jeremy has no boundaries and can play almost anything. If you have not had the pleasure of seeing him live, make sure you give him a follow on…

I am excited to bring you the second entry in my summer Poolside Vibes series! These Poolside Vibes mixes are meant to offer a backdrop for the events of your summer. It’s no secret that the pool is the place to be once the hot weather hits us. Last month, I introduced you to my brand of pool-themed sounds to help you both heat up and cool off. Vol. 2 continues that trend and takes you deeper into the sounds of summer. Enjoy this mix, and share it with those you love. Catch me this month at The Hood Bar and Pizza on June 5 for locals night; at Schmidy’s Tavern on June 21 for The Beer Goddess’ 6-Pack Anniversary Party (more on that elsewhere…

The summer weather has arrived, and with it comes the close to another “season” in our valley. Poolside is the best place to be over the next few months, so I thought I would debut some of my new track selections. I have been immersing myself in more chilled-out, deeper dance music, with elements that can take the listener to distant places. This month, I have provided a perfect audio backdrop to your summer festivities. Chill out with this FRESH Sessions mix at your next pool party or tanning session, and enjoy the hot cuts and deep grooves. I will be playing at the Coachella Valley Brewery, 30640 Gunther St.m in Thousand Palms, on Saturday, May 3, at the Beer and Bruises fundraiser for the…

Our big April Music Issue will start hitting newsstands next week—and to celebrate, we're releasing April's Coachella-themed FRESH Sessions mix a bit early! The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has been around since 1999, and has grown—massively—ever since. This year’s lineup features a diverse collection of performers from all over the world. To celebrate the festival, for this month’s FRESH Sessions, I've compiled a set of tracks that includes some music by up-and-coming artists at the festival, as well as songs by some more well-known acts. I like Coachella because it showcases a wide variety of performers and genres. Everything from indie rock to trance is represented under various tents, all with an atmosphere that is electric. While the festival has lost a bit…
