In June of 2016 I was asked to participate in an online show event titled POOL PARTY 2012: WET NET

Ordinarily, I do not do DJ style sets, and originally this was actually going to be a live recording of me and the band playing songs from "I can't ever know things" live in the school where we teach in the summer, but ultimately doing something that "fit the vibe" a bit more felt better. I actually had a lot of fun making this set. As it happens, I have made a good bit of "dance" music in my lifetime.

The FB event page has a lot of relevant links:

Watch the full show here:

• I only want to live in the SPEEDWORLD

Thank you to PARTY2012 for inviting me, Datafruits.fm for hosting the event, Dakota for running all the behind the scenes stuff making sure the music got played, trolls got banned, everything stayed online, and that there were visuals and correct tags for everyone, Aircraft for putting up with my crazy while I worked on this set last second, and everyone who tweeted or said nice things in the chat as they watched!!
