We threw our 2nd annual CMJ showcase (and one-year anniversary party!) this past Thursday at Webster Hall in NYC. There was much cake, revelry and tunes from the crew, here’s the photo galleries and related linkery:
- Driven By Boredom photos (whole show / Kid Sis / Voice selects)
- Last Night’s Party photos
- Behind-the-scenes glamour shots (and Q&As) from Metromix
- Prefix Mag photos (more on Flickr)
- End-of-night foolishness captured by Nicky Digital
- NY Times story on CMJ merch w/ Kid Sis tee
My personal highlights include Nacho Lovers playing Circle Children’s “Zulu” while giving Armand a pound, Gant-Man’s epic hypeman skills keeping up with Kid Sister’s set, Dave1′s extra dapper suit, and of course being able to rock with practically the whole FG fam (Nachos, JOTS and Trackademicks stuck around all CMJ weekend so we’ve been handling photo shoots and meetings alongside late night ridiculousness and more food than I’ve ever eaten in my life. Call me Nick Fatdubs). Special shout-out to Scion for sponsoring the show and to Kenny and the whole Webster Hall team for making sure our champagne glasses were filled up.

I’m sitting in the airport in Phoenix, where due to an unfortunate circumstance (I’m an idiot) I’ve arrived 4 hours early for my flight back to NYC. In the meantime, I figured I would share some of the highlights from my recent trip to the southwest, namely, the Mexican food.

Hello from Helsinki! My first Euro tour has been swell so far; I can conclusively report that Scandinavians have great parties and that the hotel breakfasts are off the chain. Extra props to Patski Love & Chris Stallion a.k.a JUICY from Oslo, Even who took me skateboarding in Trondheim and Sampo and Jussi who have been excellent hosts in Helsinki (here’s some video from that show). Today I’m off to London and the second half of the trip, dates and flyers on the MySpace.
Here’s a little treat that my girl Maggie Horn and I cooked up a few days before I left. It’s a cover (not a remix) of the recent T-Pain hit “Can’t Believe It.” We did a pretty loose interpretation (don’t expect Maggie to even TRY that Wayne verse) but we’re both very excited about it.

Well, the big news today is that Braids & Fades is for sale (see below, so pumped about this!) but also new and noteworthy is my upcoming European tour. I set sail next week on my maiden voyage to dj across the Atlantic. But while I’m smashing it up overseas, you all can rock to all the exclusives on this mix I made to promote the trip! Or if you happen to live in Oslo, Trondheim, Helsinki, London or Nottingham, you can get ready to come and see me. Link and tracklisting following el jump.

It’s the type of thing that you tell yourself would never happen to you or someone you know. Especially when you’re on the plane literally every other day. You know that plane crashes happen but apparently you’re more likely to get killed by a shark than to be in a plane crash. So you just go about your life and get on those flights. You also go about your sometimes stressful life and forget how fortunate you are to do what you love for a living, and to do it in good health. Read More
