Now she’s just hot … Reminds me of Katey Perry almost
This morning I laid down a rough draft of a Monster Mix I’m prepping to drop this September and I swear to God I nearly caved the walls of my Studio down with the Hella Crazy Bass I had thumping. I’ve been mastering the technical abilities needed to produce tracks and live remix with Ableton Live while perfecting my Harmonic MIXING. I love it! My Minds been in overload and I can’t sit still.
The beat I’ve uploaded or the photo of part of a beat I’ve made is just a taste of what Has been bouncing off the walls of my mind.
I came up with the musical concept for the dance beat while in Spanish at UConn. My Profesór saw my concept and, instead of giving me shit for not listening to him, he picked up my Tour Beats By Dre. and shot the breeze with me instead. He clearly knew what I was doing, or the lack thereof, and just let me off.
Pretty cool (considering he can be sort of a stiff).
Anyways, I’ve been digging around and tasting some new music, genres, and artists. Although, I have a list of artists whose records I’ve been meaning to buy, I find myself going back to this New York based DJ who podcasts a mix with some good music in it.
The World Famous DJ Chachi (‘Scott Baio ain’t got Shit! On [him],’ as Chachi would put it).
DJ Chachi is a Great DJ and he produces Good Music. There are other DJs I enjoy that produce quality music (such as,
Enferno, QBert, Spinbad and other artists I follow on SoundCloud.com) but, DJ Chachi is clearly one of my favorites, as of late.
I’m constantly learning and picking up new things from Chachi when I listen and look at his music. I don’t need to be at his live sets to understand that DJ Chachi has mastered the technical - and sometimes spiritual ability - of crowd control. I can feel it in each subtle descendo and each harmonic crescendo. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve studied harmonic mixing to a certain degree and I appreciate the wonderful sounds of DJ Chachi’s mixes.
Yet, what makes Chachi stand out musically is that I can actually feel in Chachi’s bootlegs why he is a succesful DJ - that is, why young women and club hoppers are addicted to the unique voice DJ Chachi has created musically. Or, the reason why club hoppers of a variety of ages across the world cannot, in good conscious, deny themselves the DJ Chachi experience.
That is, the long intros that build into to the dramatic build ups, hearing exclusive tracks with Mainstream vocals laid over an Indie track heard around the World, and to party at Sunday Skool with Chachi, as opposed to other DJs.
DJ Chachi controls the crowd on the dance floor so well that it extends into your living room through your iPod, iPhone or Android phone.
As a young DJ and entrepreneur (in a rapidly growing music industry) its important not to waste time and do things right - the first time. For time, is money. That is why I listen and learn from Chachi as much as I can.
From Chachi I’ve learned that mixing Indie with Mainstream is okay (under certain circumstances) and can produce some fuckin epic results (listen to his most recent Fashion Indie Mix). I realized that producing tracks with longer intros can create a more comprehensive mix and gives the crowd multiple Eargasms.
(Eargasm: Verb - Orgasm starting within the ear canal and ending at the auditory nerve. Lol)
These are just a few examples of what I’ve know and have learned. Clearly, there’s so much more to discover before I reach the musical base that is Mount Chachi.
As for now I will continue to hone my craft and technique as a DJ.
