Music Is My Sanctuary – Show #20

MIMS Podcast 020

Looking back on 2000-h8!

I’m a big lover of those end of the year lists everyone puts out, Djs, Blogs, Magazines, Radio. It’s the time of the year when I find out if I was alone with most of the stuff I liked and I usually discover tons of overlooked releases in the process. So I figured podcast #20 would be some sort of recap, but it turned out it was such a daunting task. It would have been a four hour show so I just decided to do a regular one instead… don’t hate. It’s so 2008.

Personally, this pas year was my best in terms of my Dj-ing and the website. On top of my usual 2-3 residencies; thursdays at Folies, fridays at Blizzarts, saturdays at Barocco I played a bunch of fun gigs with great DJs, dancers and music heads. For me the highlight of my year was the fact that I got to play so many different gigs that were radically different from one another.

Started the year off nicely with the GOODS gig at Sala Rossa with some jazzy & funky dancefloor business, played at the cities best outdoor summer event PIKNIC ELEKTRONIC and was able to play things I love but don’t get to play that often like dubstep, house and bassline stuff. I also did a bunch of different things like a breakdance competition, advertising agency parties, a dope night with A-Rock and his PEER PRESSURE crew night, and even a classical music throwdown (I swear, it was for the Bach Baroque festival at Rialto!). Finished the year off nicely with the THERAPY crew at Cherry with some deep and funky house… oh yeah, and I also played at the Biodome for a bunch of penguins.

Oh and the website is doing pretty good too! Around 4,000 listeners per show and 50,000 visits a month. Thanks so much so checking the show and site out. Keep on spreading the virus! (I won’t quit my day job just yet)
