Guest DJ Set

Guest DJ Set end of year round up;

First order of business...Huge thanks to the man who supplies the first Friday of every month mix, DJ ESP aka Woody McBride!! He'll be spinning at Foundation TONIGHT. It might be your first chance to hear him live, but it also might be your last chance to go to the club as they are closing on Tuesday, to 're-evaluate their situation'. They are the only downtown venue that has booked touring DJs that we have featured on this segment, including Kaskade and Mark Farina. It's obviously still hard for a club trying to book progressive dance events to stay in business and we wish them well in what ever moves they make, will someone else pick up the slack?

In addition to Woody, we've also featured more local DJs this year than ever before;
Chuck Love, DJ Eve, Freddy Fresh, David Drone & Bryan Gerrard, ODdio, NyteOwl and Jason Heinrichs from Roomsa
and we'll continue to dig for more in '08...spread the word, or send us a set!

We also featured some of the biggest names in the DJ world...John Digweed, Tiesto and Paul Van Dyke.

We had compilation mixes by some of the bands we play ...Cinematic Orchestra, Hot Chip, Spankrock and LCD Soundsystem.

We discovered some new faves; Cafe Abstrait and Terry Lee Brown on our travels in Europe this summer

We revisited some of my fave compilation series; Stephane Pompougnac's "Hotel Costes", DJ Kicks with Booka Shade and
fabric with Cut Copy, Ralph Lawson, Marc Carola, Ellen Allien, Marcus Intalex, Ricardo Villaldos, and...

Ewan Pearson, tonight's featured artist in the review of the best sets of the year.
We played two parts, the beginning and the end, of his 'fabric 35' in August and tonight we complete it by playing the middle, tracks 6 thru 11.

New Years Eve at Midnight we'll play my fave set of the year in it's entirety...
Bob Sinclar's 'Soundz of Freedom' "My Ultimate Summer of Love Mix".
I love the positive vibe that courses throughout this mix, hopefully it will start the new year in the best possible way and adequately commemorates the 40th Anniversary of the Summer of Love.
