Temperatures have cooled, the air is crisp, and the smell of wood smoke fills my lungs. Autumn is in full force here in the Ozarks, and it is my favorite time of the year. In addition to the amazing displays of color we are treated with as the leaves change color, we also set our sights on the uncanny spectacles of Halloween. This year, we are hosting the 5th Annual Eureka Springs Zombie Crawl on October 29. Immediately following the Crawl, I will be spinning my favorite spooky tunes at the Dance of the Dead official Zombie Crawl after-party! This "dead man's party" runs from 7pm to 9pm in the Basin Park in Downtown Eureka Springs, and admission is free!
And as if shaking your bones with hundreds of ghoulish zombies isn't awesome enough, I have also been asked to deejay a party on Halloween night (Oct 31) at America's Most Haunted Hotel - the infamous Crescent Hotel. Admission is only $5, and runs from 8pm to 11pm. Don't be caught dead anywhere else! More info available here.
When you've got coyotes and owls keeping you up at night, why not break out the audio recorder and make some ambient music? That was my idea when Shane Morris first approached me to contribute to a new Ambient Arkansas compilation he was assembling for Aural Films. Featuring over a dozen tracks from regional artists, the resulting collection is nothing short of immersive. So check it out below! My song "Arkanstayed" appears second in the tracklisting. keep reading »
Most of you who have been a fan of Testube for a few years know the Second Soul album pretty well. But did you know that there was actually a first "Soul" release that came before that? Back in 1996, when I was first learning the in's and out's of my Alesis QS+, and wrestling with my band name a bit, I sent out a limited number of demo cassettes titled Soul. This collection of mid-tempo instrumentals was never sold, but rather used as a promo tool, and paved the way for the sound of the Second Soul album released shortly thereafter. keep reading »
I'm pleased to announce that Melonlight has asked me to deejay their summer Salsa Nights at Aquarius again for 2016! When they first asked me to deejay last year, I knew very little about salsa music. Now I'm truly enjoying spinning a modern mix of all types of Latin ear-cuisine, including merengue, bachata, reggaeton, cumbia, samba, mambo, moombahton, and more! Whether you've heard of thee types of music or not, you owe it to yourself to come out and party with us! keep reading »
