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!

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…

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…
