It’s been fun holding down the turntables during First Fridays with some of the most incredible dj’s, bands and dancers coming through the doors of the Natural History Museum! Big thanks to all who came out and got down with us this past Friday night for our final First Fridays of the year!! But have no fear as the party continues with Summer Nights In the Garden! I’ll be back for a series of nights and you still get to explore the museum and have a ball! More info here.

Big love to the folks over at the Natural History Museum for celebrating 100 years of science in LA!  It was fun playing records alongside Raul Campos and Canyon Cody during the celebration. I missed the Gza’s set but caught to catch him in the elevator as he took pictures with fans but watching Devo knock out “Whip It” was the highlight of the evening as I watched from the top of the building. It was also great to meet some many of the KCRW listeners who came out and got down with us! Another highlight was talking music and science with NASA JPL’s Adam Steltzner in the green room!  It was another amazing year at NHM’s First Fridays! Big thanks to Su, Laurel and the amazing staff at NHM!!

I had the honor of playing on the same bill w/ Matthew Dear at the Natural History Museum earlier in the year.  What I love about Matthew’s music is his ability to to turn dance music into actual songs.  His music contains loops but also with an emphasis on live instruments and changes.  This video really captures that.  He has a new single out now (Earthforms) and a new full length on the way on Ghostly Int’l. Get it!
