Faster But Slower, aka the Fall 2013 mix by DJ Starsign finds the man going back to basics; selecting vinyl, creating a new & unique work from existing recordings, and capturing the performance live.
This mix was recorded in one take. The only equipment used was 2 Technics turntables, a Rane 2-channel mixer, a Kaoss effects pad, Shure needles, and Sony headphones. No laptops, wav files, dj software, cds. This was intended to take it back to the analogue way of doing things, capturing the warmth and magic of sounds recorded onto pieces of wax.
The mix, clocking in at nearly 2 hours, is an intersection of various types of beats from downtempo, to balearic, cosmic, disco, deep house, beardo, and assorted grooves designed for the adventurous listener. A bit of everything is thrown in the pot, from original productions, to remixes, to re-edits, new to classic, sun-kissed to atmospheric, mellow to frenetic, sleazy to sophisticated, from organic swampy stompers for jungle dwellers to electronic sound architecture for spaceship passengers. This is open format eclecticism for those who want something a bit out of the ordinary.
Recorded from Austin, with love… where it’s still warm in the Autumn.

This was from earlier this year, but my god, what an incredible mix. Had to share.
I know I said I retired last year. What I meant is that I’m done doing my own parties b/c I don’t have the same amount of time and energy to promote events. But I still do guest spots or specials gigs from time to time.
This month, I’m djing twice. Once with my fellow Parakitachi brother, DJ Chicken George and another for the Yacht Rock Event of Epic Proportions otherwise known as Rockin’ You Softly (aka RYS).
Here are the details:
Saturday 9/22: Malverde with Chicken George on 2nd St from 10pm-2am
Saturday 9/29: Loft 718 on Congress Ave (across from the Paramount Theater) for Rockin’ You Softly.
