deep reactions with catalyst

catalyst: funky touch

This week I went to a club in Brooklyn with 4 hours of great DJs form 8-midnight, and the George Clinton live from 12-2. This got my brain in the funky mode. My crate is not super-deep in funky house, and I don't know that end of my crate well enough. So I think I could have done better on the sequencing of these tracks. But, I had fun, and think I need to play this stuff more. It's so fun to dance to!

Recorded live at Dogglounge.com on 2017-06-18, Father's Day in many countries.

Since there are lots of fathers out there that grew up in the Disco era, I thought it would be fun to do a disco-themed set - BUT, make it more modern by using either reworks of old Disco tracks that are more DJ friendly, or fully-new Nu-Disco / Indie Dance tracks.

I had a TON of fun playing this set. I hope you enjoy it, too. Visit and support the station!

This set is right down the middle of the Dogglounge sound - at least *my* feeling about DL sound is. I tend to get a little clubby in the last couple of tracks - but that's just who I am.

I seem to be on a streak of naming my sets based on my feeling about the weather. Well, it's June, and here in New England, it's still cool (55F, 12C), and I'm still anticipating the onset of REAL summer. Please....

Though winter wasn't terrible here in the Northeast USA, I'm so happy to have longer, warm days that I couldn't help myself: I wanted a summery, beach-party type set. So the variety is a bit broad, and not super chill, but hopefully fun.

catalyst: full circle

Recorded live at Dogglounge.com on New Year's Day, 01 January 2017. The year has come full-circle, eh? ;-)

I hadn't planned on spinning a set on NY Day; it's a holiday, right? But around 15:45, I realized I had nothing to do. So I decided to spin. I had to set up all my DJ equipment, though, as I'd taken it down for parties over the holiday. So I actually had a bit of a mistake during the 2nd track. (I remastered it to correct this error.)

Interestingly, the tunes from the set turn out to either be 3-5 years old, or less than 6 months old.
