Promises for Amy. Steve Smith (Dirty Vegas).

So my friend Steve Smith (lead singer of Dirty Vegas) released a solo album this year. It was entirely funded by Pledge Music. I was a backer, and one of the things I got for funding it was an exclusive acoustic recording. I have decided to share it with everyone with Steve's permission, so here it is. I had Steve choose whichever song he wanted to record as an acoustic from his album. I hope you love it as much as we do! Happy holidays! Please feel free to share it with whoever you’d like!

How can I tell you
How can I tell you
What you mean to me
To make you see
How can I show you
How can I show you
Everything that’s real
To me
I give you promises to keep
Promises of a love so deep
So deep
Promises promises
How can I save you
How can I save you
From a broken heart
That tears you apart
How can I teach you
How can I teach you
What is right from wrong
To be strong
I give you promises to keep
Promises of a love so deep
So deep
Promises promises


Nightmares on Wax. Mezzanine. San Francisco. California. 11.29.2013.

I have been a huge fan of Nightmares on Wax since the 90s. This was the first time I have ever seen them. I thought it was just a DJ set. But when I showed up and realized it was a live show, I was very excited. This may be the BEST live show I have ever been to ever. And I have been to more live shows than most people in general. I have not felt such love and positive energy like that since a Body and Soul party at WMC, or when I saw Florence + the Machine the first time. What an incredible experience! Do them a favor and help out with Last Night a DJ Saved My Life's Ibiza Heart Project in whichever way you can so we can get more clean drinking water out there for those who need it. Thank you!

Look at me
Look in my eyes
The soul within
I tell you no lie
I am you
You are me
So tell me...
Why can't we be

-I Am You

Peter Kruder. Public Works. San Francisco. California. 10.5.2013.

I was literally about to go to bed when Andrew texted me back to let me know that he and Christina were in to see Peter Kruder. I hadn't seen him play since Treasure Island Music Festival in 2010, so it didn't take too much motivation to get out of bed. I remember meeting Peter for the first time during the Winter Music Conference in 2003 when he played at the Om party and did a house set. It blew my mind. The K&D Sessions may be one of the most important mixes in trip-hop history. The baby mama of death almost got me this time.

Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm
-Enjoy The Silence (Timo Maas remix)

Here is an image I took at the Winter Music Conference 2003.
