Tapping away before heading to a potluck meal with friends and burning-man-campmates. Now I really feel like a californian, since burning man is definitely one axis along which I organize friends. not the main axis, but still..

Surya Dub last week was fantastic. I love the Bersa Discos sound and their audience too - very compatible mix of people and a great vibe. Hopefully we can link up again in the future - the global dread bass sounds are pretty unstoppable! Some good pictures up here

two more gigs for me before the end of the year

I'm playing the Creative Commons holiday party, at 111 Minna, on December 18th. I assume they will announce it soon and I'll have more info. Kid Kameleon will also represent.

And after I go back East to see my fam, I will be lucky enough to drop in to Beat Research and throw down alongside Rizzla. Should be dance party madness in Central Square..

car recovered, music missing from the internets

Police found our car dumped at the end of a very sad street in SF (lots of boarded-up public housing and a pretty bleak-looking orphanage). It wasn't damaged much except for the broken window and everything movable gone. So it's been in the shop to get tidied up and re-keyed, hopefully we get it by the end of the week. woo!

In other news - I've been hearing a lot about the crackdown on music blogs that post music or links to music. Palms Out - one of the giants in the new club music scene ("blog house") has had their remix Sundays targeted and taken down by Blogger. This sucks, for lots of reasons. I will be writing about it in my next column for wiretap.

If anyone has had this happen to them (links or blog posts taken down, with or without warning --ESPECIALLY if there is no notification and things just disappear), post your contact info in the comments or get in touch with me please.

My weekend

after djing a party in a hay maze on Friday night... I'm speaking at this conference at the Berkeley Art Museum (which happens both Friday day and Saturday) :

and then, I'm going to the Brainfeeder showcase: Kode9, Gaslamp Killer, Flying Lotus, Daedalus, Ras G, Martyn, Samiyam and more..

the bay area is a fun place.
