Here's another mix I planned on recording months ago. Easy listening funky mid-tempo beats. This one should have been the soundtrack for your summer, but I've just been too busy having fun!
As some of you may know, Soundcloud is really cracking down on DJ's sharing other people's music. I have already had many mixes removed, and several written warnings because of copyright issues. Any more, and my Soundcloud page will be permanently deleted.
If you would still like to hear all my music, there are a couple other options…

This mix is a collection of classic songs, remixed for 2015. Old Rock, Blues, Soul, Funk, and Pop tunes from the 60's, 70's & 80's... brought back to life, "revitalized" as Funky House & Nu Disco tracks.
Something a bit different from me this time...
Lately I have been playing more Lounge and Après gigs, than Nightclubs and Festivals. This has encouraged me to collect some more "real music" that is suitable for listeners of all ages. This mix is full of classic Funk, Soul, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, and Rare Groove tracks, plus a few newer tunes that have the same vibe. Throw this one on at your next dinner party. Even your parents will like it. ;)
Maybe it's cuz I'm a 70's baby, but I've really been loving the Funk tunes lately! This mix is some of the funkiest shit I have in my collection. Some old, some new. Starts slow, gets fast. James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Kool & The Gang, Van Morrison, Deee-Lite, Anderson.Paak, and more!
I knoooow you're gonna dig this...
What do you call 70 good friends on a 60' custom catamaran, with an open-bar & booming sound system, celebrating our amazing friends' wedding, while cruising Mexico's Banderas Bay on a glorious sunny day? Fantástico viaje!
This is a polished version of the marathon set I played upon said party boat earlier this month. 2.5 hours of funky feel-good beats, chock-full of sunshine and love!
If you're ever visiting Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, etc... I highly reccommend Ally Cat Sailing Adventures. Beautiful boat, and fun, friendly, entertaining crew. I will definitely be back some day soon...
My latest funky summer mix! This one took much longer than I expected to put together, and summer is pretty much over. Still great for mellow daytime listening... 2 hours of chill Hip Hop, Soul, Nu Funk, Glitch Hop, Beach House, and Funky Breaks!
The Hydration Mix Series is a monthly Drum & Bass mix series featuring talented junglists from Canada's West Coast. Simple and straightforward, our aim is to bring you great music from great producers mixed by our rotating DJ roster of Erski, Mt. Doyle, Sinesthetix (aka Akela), Surgeon and Willisist.
I performed at another friends' wedding earlier this summer. Well... technically, the afterparty. It was an amazing crowd of beautiful people, and the energy was high! I got to play almost 3 hours of fun / funky / bouncy / dirty House and Breaks. A good mix of brand new tunes, and forgotten favourites. This is the polished studio recording of my set from that fantastic night.
This year I was lucky enough to play two different sets at Rise & Shine. One on Sat night, and another impromptu set on Sun afternoon. This is almost exactly what I played during the day on Sunday. 2 hours of fresh Funky House!

Earlier this year, I was invited to play this awesome party called Festivus. It's an intimate House Music festival on a private campground near Osoyoos BC, Canada. My set was noon on Sunday, so I got to kick-start the day party! It was a hot sunny day, and I was playing for beautiful people swimming & floating on the lake, and dancing on the sandy beach. This isn't the exact set I played, but it's very similar. It starts off kinda slow, then picks up the pace to some feel-good Funky House. Already can't wait for next year!
A couple weeks ago I was invited to play some music on the "Soul Kitchen Sundays Radio Show" on Whistler FM. I thought it went pretty well, so I re-recorded my set a few days later. Mostly brand new Funky/Jackin' House, Nu Disco, and Future Garage. Recorded in one take, with turntables & Serato.
