So I’ve been listening to Deep House and Indie Dance / Nu Disco for about two years now, and I’ve decided to take the plunge, buy some DJ gear and start spinning sets. Below you can find my first set called Yalla (which means come on, or let’s go in Arabic) on Soundcloud or Youtube. Any Feedback is greatly appreciated. For those that are curious, I’m using a DDJ-SXW (which is just a limited edition of the DDJ-SX in white) and Traktor for the software.

I’m not always the one in my group that finds new cool music. But a couple of days ago I was! Listen to this Electro Rap Mashup. It’s mixed so well it doesn’t sound like an electro track (even the track names mashup really well). Also I would say it sound better than both songs on their own (no disrespect). Jane Doze did a really good job.
September 7th, 2010 marks the date of Carbon City Lights debut album release on iTunes. This up-and-coming artist is based in the most culturally diverse city in the world, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

I know I have not posted in a while, I will hopefully post a lot after the semester is over. However this is a quick post of a great song that my friend Hassan found. Hassan always finds great songs and I thought this one was worth sharing!
So I’ve been listening to the band Temple of Life. They are a young band from Canada, that brings good music back to today’s terribly saturated industry. A couple of weeks ago they prereleased two singles from their album. One song is very upbeat and the other is darker. I really enjoy these songs, and look forward to buying the full album. You can purchase this prerelease on iTunes. If you would like to preview the songs before purchasing them, I have included a widget that lets you preview the songs.
Quick morning post before I run an errand for a friend and go for a run. I went to the jazz festival on the final day (July 12th, 2009) and I was lucky enough to have my camera with me. I caught this acrobat duo, and also the fireworks show. Enjoy!
