Put The Needle On The Record | The Legendary Billy Jam and Neon Brown

Party People!

This past weekend, the legendary Billy Jam was in town for the Crush Walls Festival. The Crush Festival celebrates art, urban beautification, creativity, and culture by enriching the community through art.

I had the privilege and honor of being interviewed by Billy for his show, Put The Needle On The Record. As well, Billy played a handful of tunes from my upcoming album, L'appel Du Vide.

I had a great time and it's much appreciated. Thanks Billy!

NBR is back!

Huzzah!

NBR is back, sort of. I have been wicked busy with workings of a third kind for the summer and have not had any time to dedicate to bathroom humor jokes and mixes of beautiful music. Until now. 

The mix associated with these jokes provided by my associate Desi Mulcahy (Terri Gross) is a live mix I did a couple months back. All BOOGIE.

Enjoy!

The Best Last Best Plane Ride Ever | Mets 86' | James Blagden Interview

On October 15, 1986, the New York Mets came back from a three-run deficit in the ninth and beat the Houston Astros in 16 innings to win the pennant. This film recreates the Mets' infamous postgame celebration, from champagne in the jacuzzi to the destruction of a perfectly good Ozark Airlines DC-10. Starring the voices of Lenny Dykstra, Dwight Gooden, Kevin Mitchell, and Darryl Strawberry.

Neon Brown | All Vinyl Set | Meadowlark Kitchen | Thursday Oct 13th | Denver Nightlife

Tonight I will be DJing at the Meadowlark Kitchen (2705 Larimer Street) in downtown Denver from 10pm - close. Come through and enjoy some delicious food and drinks and say what up.

For the past couple month's I've been on a northern soul and rock tip but tonight we shall get funky. I'll be playing a  lot of funk, boogie, soul and hip hop. All vinyl, all night, all right. Get out into the Denver nightlife and enjoy yourself with the one and only Neon Brown. There's only one Thursday a week and that Thursday belongs to you, me, your jiggling butt cheeks and dancing feet.

Deca - "Waiting"

The homie Deca released his music video yesterday for "Waiting" off of his upcoming solo album Forest Agates. The video premiered on Hip Hop DX but if you missed it, here it is. 

"Waiting" is a stop motion video created by Deca using an iPhone and many hours of precise movements. He captures the complex human experience through the creation of mandalas. The psychedelic imagery leads a beautifully written, thought-provoking song, which focusses on the disarray of our modern age. As Deca travels the existential path to enlightenment, he encounters visceral obstacles, which can lead to his downfall and or rising. Everything is everything. 

Take a look and listen and pre-order Deca's album Forest Agates now at Band Camp

Throw BackThursdays | The Spectator

In 2009, I released an album titled The Spectator, which was more of an experimental project. It ranged in style and sounds and had an indy rock, hip-hop genre-bending feel to it. Looking back, there are definitely some bangers on this album, as well as a few of those not so banging tunes. 

The track I have chosen for today's post is a banger. "Space Petro", is a cosmic journey through the universe. Who knows where we'll end up or what we'll see? The song is accompanied by my bud Anthony Abatzis on vocals. 

I've always enjoyed the build up of this track. It is non-traditional but has a good sense of pop. I feel I need to venture back into this world sometime soon. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.
