“Give in, get happy!”

This was my 4th consecutive year serving as the DJ on Virgin America’s Pride float, and once again we were honored to have recording artist, reality show star, and hometown girl Aubrey O’Day on board, along with a contingent of my colorful co-workers.

San Francisco Pride’s theme for 2012 was Global Equality, and the theme for Virgin’s float was The World Is Your Runway. To that end I tried to flavor the music just a bit with travel themes.

Please enjoy and share this souvenir mix of my set from the float.

Cover star: me!

“I used to dance with my daddy, yeah!”

Here’s an attempt at being topical.

The last few weeks have brought us new albums by Daft Punk, Siouxsie, and Underworld. Goldfrapp’s forthcoming album has been leaked. Britney Spears continues to be a pop wreck, with her little sister now joining the team. Led Zeppelin took the stage together for the first time since 1985. Scissor Sisters released a fan-only single limited to 300 copies that subsequently pissed off a lot of the fans. I saw The Rapture in concert twice this year. Green Velvet working with Chicago house legend Jamie Principle makes me very happy.

Buster’s presence is helping me make it through the stress of my day job and of the holidays, and when I’m recording a new mix he sits next to my laptop and watches me intently.

“This is what you came for, what you came for: Big! Fat! Beat!”

I can’t believe it’s been 12 weeks since I last posted a mix. I had no intention of letting it go that long, but between packing, relocating 2500 miles, DJ gigs, getting settled, and looking for a day job I just haven’t made time to put one together.

However, that means you get three months of new favorites.

With one exception, all of these were in my set at last week’s Basket in San Francisco (which also happened to be my birthday). Luvsik, who spun before me, dropped Bigger Than Big and I freaked out. It has that high-energy, squelchy electro sound that drives me nuts so I immediately downloaded it when I got home. I’ve been listening to it over and over along with the Rihanna track (which was a total surprise).

The intro bit was inspired by seeing Daft Punk in Berkeley about two weeks after I moved.

Other than that, I don’t have much to report. I’m glad to be back and I hope to start posting regularly again. I’ve even got some ideas for hosted shows, and I haven’t done one of those in seven months. Expect cameos and co-hosts.

Special thanks go out to Agent Adam, Bundy, Dann Edmonds, Luvsik, Mad Adam, Peter Black, and Tim Baker, who either inspired or directly turned me on to the tracks in this mix.
