Chilly Gonzales & A-Trak Live


For this year so far, my favorite performance was this little guest spot I did at Chilly Gonzales’s “Piano Talk Show” at Joe’s Pub in New York last Thursday. It was barely rehearsed, only 15 minutes in length, and we were both coming in from long flights with little to no sleep. Watch the result, I hope you enjoy it!

Fretless Fader

It’s only a prototype, but it still looks fun. Through the use of built-in sliding MIDI control, the Fretless Fader allows DJ'
s to scratch, "cut, and change notes through 2 octaves without taking your hands away from the vinyl and fader."

Ghosts Of Venice - I Learned From The Best

This song is just dope. Sounds like old Dax Riders or Daft Punk. Reminds me on the time when I was still wearing baggy pantsthinking secretly, “Hey that doesn’t sound too bad.” But not being able to tell it to anyone at school because everyone listened to House Of Pain or The Beastie Boys and House music was just gay. Ach kids can be so cruel sometimes…

Aloe Blacc - I Need A Dollar

The new single by Aloe Blacc on Stonesthrow Rec, that became the theme song for the new HBO show ‘How To Make It In America’. Backing band is the congenial El Michels Affair. Nice one.
