Welcome to the March edition of FRESH Sessions! I want to thank Ivanna Love (aka Cici Ochoa) for stepping in last month with her selection of tracks. There are more guest mixes on the way! I am always looking to evolve and share the best tracks I can find, often featuring local talent. This month, I've featured a track from Coachella Valley favorite Pedro Le Bass. You can find his music via at soundcloud.com/pedrolebass. Follow me on Facebook for an up-to-date list of shows. I'll be at Clinic Bar Lounge on Friday, March 7, and toward the end of the month, on Friday, March 28, I am part of the lineup for the NestEggg Food Bank Benefit Show at Bar, 340 N. Palm Canyon Drive,…

Thanks for checking out another FRESH Sessions installment! To keep things FRESH, I will be bringing in various local DJs to guest mix throughout the year. This month, we are featuring our first FRESH Sessions guest DJ! Ivanna Love aka, Cici Ochoa, is a local who has been in the scene for some time now. Ivanna’s style is eclectic; in just one set, you’ll most likely hear tracks from several different genres. She keeps it upbeat; she keeps it fun; she keeps it FRESH. Ivanna is an inspiration with her positive attitude and impressive tastemaker skills. This month’s mix offers a perfect example of the vibe that Ivanna Love brings. She’s a great person who creates great music. So without further ado, I present to…

It’s a new year, so it’s time to give my monthly mix a FRESH new look. FRESH Sessions will feature not just my own mixes each month; I also plan on collaborating more with other local artists. I’ve always craved some type of outlet to distribute my music here in the Coachella Valley—my home. I always wondered how to get my music out to people—a difficult task for many artists. Well, FRESH Sessions will provide an outlet for such musicians and artists. For you, our readers/listeners, FRESH Sessions will allow you to discover new music while learning about the talent we have in the valley. This month’s mix is about feeling good! What better way to start the new year than with a mix of…

Another month, another FRESH Mix! This is the third edition of the FRESH Mix—and, of course, the last of 2013. I want thank everyone who has been following the FRESH Mix. I am passionate about sharing the music I love with people. I also want to thank the Coachella Valley Independent for being brave enough to host this feature! Ok, that's enough. Let's get to the music! This month’s FRESH Mix is focused on a deeper style of music. Not all electronic music features massive synthesizer lines and giant bass kicks. In fact, some has a sound that can best be described as "chilled out." I personally enjoy deep house, because it can easily blend with other styles, such as my favorite—disco! The final track…

It’s no secret: Disco is back! A genre long mocked has returned with a new face. I have been a fan of disco since I was a kid. The Bee Gees, Electric Light Orchestra, Chic—I could go on and on. These acts were the top ticket in town for a good part of the ’70s and early ’80s. Of course, some of us may remember a night when a certain baseball team burned disco records, calling it the death of disco. Fast forward to 2013, and disco has returned to Top 40 radio via acts including Bruno Mars and Daft Punk. The Coachella Valley fell into “disco fever” this year with Splash House, a disco- and dance-themed pool-party festival. This month’s FRESH Mix is dedicated…
