Techno is probably one of the most popular genres of dance music, and has been around so long it’s unlikely that your average listener would share the same touchstones in conversation. It’s possibly considered unapproachable and repetitive, shrill or harsh, listened to while flailing around dark rooms with strobe lights. Which isn’t wrong, but there’s […]
I recently created a Soundcloud account for my songs, check it out!
This post is dedicated to the records that got away, ones I saw and did not buy due to being foolish and miserly. Life is short, and in many cases there are a finite amount of records left, so you should not feel conflicted about spending the money, even if it is difficult to justify. […]
The Rasputin Music in Haight-Ashbury has closed, leaving me with only Amoeba records in that neighborhood. I found at least 75% of my collection at Rasputin, what a shame.
I want to share the best thing in electronic music right now, Australia’s Partiboi69. I don’t know much about him, but none of that really matters anyway. These sets are about an hour long, show what’s great about electronic music and are a true inspiration to us all.

Steely Dan is one of the reasons that I got into records, and after buying these records I want to buy a better record player to get as much out of these records as I can. The quality can’t compare to perfect digital versions, but with this band and its obsessive attention to the sound […]

I was happy to have about 20 minutes worth of dance tracks, and ones that audiences would recognize and have broad appeal. If I had to produce a bunch of […]
At the end of June, I had a lot of new reference points for records that I wanted to buy. I also had good luck finding albums at great prices, which indicated that I should be more, ahem, uninhibited in my selections. For the price of a coffee, you can afford to be liberally selective, […]
Sometimes you have to pay the piper, and if you want a record you’ll need to buy it new. If I want to play some of my favorite albums or introduce someone to an artist I appreciate, I would like to have these records. I visited Green Apple Books in the Richmond with a gift […]
