So I found out about the show several months ago. So I was already going to be there. Then they added Teeko to the bill! I’ve been following Teeko for about a year ever since I saw him on the Mikidz show.

So, I wanted to make sure I was in attendance! But I was secretly dreaming about a way to get on the show. Then later on, I saw this video on Goalcast and that settled it.

So long story short, The fine people at Marathon Music Works plus the fine people working Deep Tropics worked their magic. And now I will be representing Nashville at this show. I can’t wait.

I wanted to go ahead and post this here. Black Cat Sylvester has a new music video out. Not only is this a funny video, not only is this a really cool remix…

not only was this video made by Maurice Barrett who I keep mentioning, but I also have a little cameo in this video towards the end! So check it out!

Black Cat is someone you need to follow…

He’s the inventor of the synth table. A new hybrid of synths and turntables. He’s doing great things with that. Check out the following.

New Music Video: Quiet Entertainer Orchestra – Companion (Live at FooBar)

I just had a great show at Foobar in East Nashville this past weekend with Quiet Entertainer Orchestra! I’m excited to be able to share some footage from that night! I asked Maurice Barrett to come to the show and do what he does. You might remember Maurice (aka 247) because he made this video for me. And he made this one. So you already know the results are going to be great. Anyway, here is the video. Special thanks to Bruce, Philip, & Jed who were part of the band that night. And extra EXTRA special thanks to Devin who added the live visuals.

Quiet Entertainer Orchestra at FooBAR Too w/ Undiscover, Hobbledeions, and Rain

The show is tonight! I’m very excited to finally do this show. It will be my first time doing a headlining show with the live band, Quiet Entertainer Orchestra. As you’ve seen, Q.E.O. is just a  live interpretation of my previous DJ tracks. We’re playing tonight at Foobar Too which is the venue side.

Also performing are Undiscover. Kind of a party-core, rave hip hop group. Similar to Die Antwoord.

Hobbledeions is hard to explain. He’s kind of a noise rock drummer playing hip hop beats both on a sampler and a drum kit. I’m excited to see him.

Rain is an MC in town. He kind of sounds like Tyler the Creator to me but he does a lot of cool things with his voice too. On the low, he makes killer beats too! Better than mine. 😛 I wish I were kidding.

This show will be great! Come on out to FooBAR too.
