“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’m gonna take you out tonight, I’m gonna make you feel alright…”

It’s now been 29 months since my last Kiss The Future mix. On one hand I feel like I should talk a little bit about what I’ve been doing and why I’ve chosen these songs, but instead I think I’ll let the music do the talking.

“I’ll be your schoolgirl dream, I’ll shake my peaches & cream…”

So, it’s been, like, two months since I recorded a Kiss The Future mix (heh, Two Months Off. See: Underworld). While I’ve had a number of tracks earmarked, I just wasn’t finding the right combination of tracks that excited me…that was, until the night of SugarKRASH. My friend John Rivie, who DJs under the name Luvsik, dropped the remix of Beck’s Loser you’ll hear in this set, and it was like one hundred explosions going off in my body. From that point on, everything just gelled. I really love this particular KTF.

I don’t have anything else to add – the music totally does the talking.

“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.
