Sweater Set

In a wave of recent self-promotion, the good folks over at Grown Kids Radio have put up the Wilderness Wandering Mix by Chautauqua, which is a project that I’m doing with Loose Shus. The mix reflects some of our favorite tracks: old, new, current, and forthcoming. Stream or Download the Mix right here.

Also, I recently DJ’ed a set at my favorite weekly night here in San Francisco, Sweater Funk. I stumbled across this free weekly Sunday night party a few years back, when I was more on the disco side of the the spectrum, and became an instant convert. I loved that fact that it was held in the basement of a random dive in Chinatown, that they had a huge crew of DJs that were really, really, really up on their shit: top that off with a killer soundsystem to boot. The DJs were even nice enough to let me know what they were playing when I asked (some DJs don’t do this! I think most are getting better about it though), and I’ve found that frequenting the night and getting schooled on tunes on a weekly basis, sort of vamped up my record buying, especially in terms off the prices that I was willing to spend on records (thanks, I guess). Most importantly, I could lurk in the darkness, dance, and play my air bass anonymously. Although they’ve since moved from Chinatown (which in a way breaks my heart), they are now located two blocks from my house, so I guess it works out either way.

I recorded my set, and here it is with a tracklist below:
