Back On The Wagon...
Posted on Jul 8, 2008
So, first and foremost, I want to extend a huge thank-you to Wes Straub and Rob Curtis for welcoming me onto the Area709 roster. I've been a huge fan of the site for a couple of years now and it's a real honor to find myself part of this community.
Rob took a huge chance when he invited me play at his Textures night in Calgary back in May. Despite knowing Rob for over two years, I don't think he'd actually ever heard me play until that night! Needless to say, we had a blast. The Calgary crowd was fantastic, some old friends made some surprise appearances and the impromptu tag-team format went incredibly well.
So, the summer - after a series of false starts - seems to be in full swing in Vancouver now. The weather is perfect for long days in Squamish or Whistler, there seems to be a party every weekend and you can always count on a trip to the beach after the office shuts down. A big thanks to everyone who made it out to the Anza Club last Saturday to hear myself, Drew David and Colleen Arndt, (Miss Innocent) from Soundproof play some groovy tech house and bangin techno. That night seems to have gotten ball rolling for some more summer mayhem.
Keep tuned in here for a couple of outdoor summer events coming your way in August. I have some mixes you might not have heard up in the music section and will hopefully log some time to post more music in the next couple of weeks!
