Its here. Very different from previous mixes. Much more minimal/techno. This aint no mix for your laptop speakers. There are some serious low frequencies that cannot be missed, so I suggest it be played as loud as possible with the bass turned waaaaay up. Enough said. Enjoy….

For those of you in SF, you know that we’ve been getting some funky weather as of late. Gloomy, rainy and just outright cold. But lucky for us, Spring is officially on its way, and so with that in mind I decided to ‘clean out’ some old nu disco tracks that i’ve had for years with no real opportunity to play out. Some tracks are only weeks old and others years. One even dates back to 1999 believe it or not. This mix is funky, sexy, upbeat and just downright wonderful in my opinion with a lot of heartfelt vocals and warm melodies that will leave a big smile on your face. It will have you shakin’ those hips and tappin’ those feet in no time. Perfect for the office, the studio or the car or wherever you find yourself this lovely weekend. Please enjoy my brand new one hour and thirty minute Nu Disco megamix SPRING GLEAMING and have an amazing weekend. Sunny days are on their way, life is good.

FROM WARHOLREIMAGINED.COM …
For Warhol Reimagined we’ve asked some of the best talent in the art world today to come forward and rework some of Warhol’s classic imagery.
Our featured artists were given 20″x 26″ panels, and we’re asked to pick from a selection of over 60 of Warhol’s works. The works were chosen based on their importance in Warhol’s history as an artist and overall representational aesthetic. The artists have been asked to reinterpert the Warhol image they have selected into their own style.
Andy Warhol is best known for his Campbell’s soup can works that were first displayed at Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles in 1962. These works now hang in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. We’ve chosen to recreate the MOMA display by utilizing the talents of 32 well known and emerging artists – each reimagining a different can in their own light.
Warhol Reimagined: The New Factory is curated by Warholian.com and this will be their first ever art show for the newly established arts brand. Warholian exposes the “New Artist Movement” genre emerging in Los Angeles, New York, and namely San Francisco.
The show is being presented by Project One, an art gallery and lounge in the Design District of San Francisco. Project One gallery features 1200 sq feet of open gallery space with 20 foot ceilings. The gallery represents local, national and international artists, and focuses on contemporary art from artists they love.
