10394012_10104382450211460_5554115540601013563_n

I DJ’ed this past Friday night at Monarch in San Francisco to open the “Move It Or Lose It” party. To put it simply, I played lots and lots of (electronic, eclectic, deep, tech, house, or whatever) jams I’ve been digging recently. They also all happen to be on the lower end of the four on the floor bpm scale like 115-122 As of right now It’s probably my favorite mix of mine just cuz I like da songz so much. You should listen to hear what this self fabricated non buzz is all about. Isn’t that what it’s all about? Or what was the deal with the hokey pokey anyways?

Read on for the tracklisting and stuff. Or maybe not stuff. To be determined upon further typing.

Flashflooder DJ Sets: Before/After STRFKR Show

STRFKR-flashflooder0dj-set

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of DJ’ing at a private show that STRFKR played live at in a tiny venue that hosted maybe 200 people. More specifically, this went down at a new venue called Leo’s along the Berkeley/Oakland border and was thrown by two great dudes, one who happens to be a friend of mine and the other happened to be the owner of the venue. Anyways, the night was spectacular, the energy and vibes of the people were great, and of course STRFKR played a great show and were overall good dudes.

My contribution of the night was playing the intro DJ set before STRFKR took the stage and also playing a closing dance set after they finished their set. All in all I DJ’ed for about 3.5 hrs that night with the “before” set being a mix of indie and chill house tunes with some dance appeal starting slow and then picking up the pace up to an eventual dance floor friendy tempo which was continued and extended into heavier tracks (including some crowd requested trap hehe) for the “after” set. The response was unanimously great to my DJ sets for the night, especially the “before” set and it was such a wonderful feeling that I can’t be thankful enough for. If anyone is reading this that was actually there who gave me a high-five, a smile, a hug, or a thank you….THANK YOU! It’s that kind of energy and response that really makes me enjoy DJ’ing and sharing music with other people.

But if you weren’t there and want to hear what you missed out on, you’re in luck! I happened to record both sets and have posted them below for your listening pleasure. Full tracklisting for each is posted below as well as on the soundcloud descriptions. Enjoy!

Flashflooder’s “4th of Rahuly” 7+hr Marathon Mix

flashflooder-4thofrahuly

Last Friday I threw a send off party for one of my very good friends Rahul (who’s leaving to travel the world) at my house which also served as a dual purpose independence day party (as it started on the 4th of July and went well into the 5th). At the party I was prepared to play a little DJ mix for everyone to groove to some quality tunes and have some dancing fun times. Little did I know that this DJ mix would actually stretch into all hours of the night, clocking in at just under 8 hours. That’s right, it’s not a typo. This was and in all likelihood will be, the longest DJ set I’ve ever played in my life.

Workaholics 2013 Hip-Hop Mix

workaholics

A while back when I first started trying to make DJ mixes I had the idea to try to make themed mixes, both for fun and to push myself to have a certain focus on these mixes. The two theme types I’ve been most interested in making are genre themed mixes and sample themed mixes. In this case I appeased both of my interests by making a hip-hop/rap genre themed mix which is also themed after the hilarious show Workaholics (via copious vocal samples and specific song selection), which not coincidentally also features a lot of hip-hop music on the show.

Anyways, I had fun rewatching all of the Workaholics Season 3 episodes and cutting up samples of what were some of the funniest moments to me, and I hope that you get some enjoyment or laughs from them as well. Most importantly, I really like all of the songs I used on the mix and feel happy with my selections in pairing them with an appropriate themed Workaholics sample(s). But enough talking about it, just give it a listen below.

I recently decided to put together two things I’ve been enjoying a lot lately in the form of a DJ mix, the hilarious comedy of Russ Brown from the highly underrated FX Animated series Unsupervised, and new school crunk/trap music (which to me is kind of like the what those genres used to mean but with a nice electronic bass slap in the face).
