spread love

June 13, 2012

I’m feeling a bit hypocritical in that I just want to say “fuck haters”. Whats the point! We’re all connected to each other in one way or another. I get to see how shit talking and gossip has affected my friends lives in the most adverse ways. I’ve been the target of  the assumption mill as well and it doesn’t feel so amazing.  Aren’t we all imperfect? Aren’t we all going through struggles? Don’t we all suffer from character flaws that manifest themselves in different ways?  Who are we to judge anyone? Isn’t judgement a form of alienation, born from the ego thats so self destructive anyways?  I’m not perfect just like anyone else, however, I’ve learned through (sometimes harsh) self honesty that embracing the people around me no matter what, is the most positive way I can live my life. It feels the best. It allows me to help others which, in all simplicity, is my sole purpose on this earth.  If you hear something negative about someone you know, have the courage to ask that person yourself what the deal is. Maybe that person is struggling in an area that you can help with. Who knows, maybe that conversation will allow you the opportunity to be of service to your fellows rather than spite them from afar.

Ok…..enough with the bullshit

Career news….

djmichaelis.com is almost ready!!!!! I’m really stoked about that. I have a good team of people behind me now that are making things happen. My logo has been redesigned, my bio is being rewritten, and all of my social media crap is finally going to be consolidated to one spot…..YAY!

I’m starting a Sunday Residency at Bagatelle’s Sunday French Brunch. That spot is off the hook. A mix between a high end brunch, mixed with bottle service, sparklers, positive music, getting trashed, and dancing on tables….

My headlining experience at Supperclub June 2nd was off the hook. I’ll be back there June 23rd and 30th as well.  I’ll be back headlining in August.

I should be back headlining at Confidential in the end of July as well….We do it right over there!

I’m making my debut appearance at PlayHouse June 21st playing with “The GoshFather”

I’ll also be making my debut appearance at BNG’s new spot LURE along with the upscale and sexy restaurant/club Lexington Social House and Roxbury in July.

As always, you can catch me every Friday night at Sidebar in the Beverly Wilshire Hotel across from Wolfgang Puck’s world renowned steakhouse CUT.

I’m also in the process of raising money to build a studio so I can finish up my first full length album with bias24.

So much going on…….

Im on my way up, and I don’t have time to fuck with the petty shit so LOVE is the word of the day and every day

Peace

ALMOST THERE!

Just finished and posted a new mix on my podcast :djmichaelis@podomatic.com Check it out

Been busy lately. Bias24 and I just finished a 4 song remix ep for Kaya Jones which is due for release in the next. Included will be the remix, the extended play, the dutch refix (hopefuly) and a brain smashing dubstep remix UNAFKTD style. Really looking forward to getting our sound out there for you.

I just got back from playing a box.net event in San Francisco with Third Eye Blind. They were fun to watch. The singer graced the stage barefoot and talked to the ladies in the crowd with a sense of entitled arrogance. Gave me a little laugh.

I returned home late Thursday night completely exhausted. Friday I played my usual set at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. That spot cracks me up. I’ve never seen so many Bentley’s, Rolls’, or Lambo’s in one driveway; pretty ridiculous. Lots of rich dudes, high priced women and a tranny. Just keepin’ it real.

Saturday day I was off and running early, getting ready for Supperclub that evening. It was off the hook as usual and I got to share the tables with DJ Reflex. I spun the dinner set as well which was themed prom night. I played all those nostalgic 80’s jams I grew up with, making people smile. I never did get that slow dance though….you know who you are…..

Sunday I spun a lil’ somthin’ somethin’ at the Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica. That place is rad. My bell Hop guy also happened to be friends with these people that specialize in the acquisition and restoration of old Chevy’s. Definitely got that dudes number so I can get the hook up on that 59′ El Camino I’ve been dreaming about.

Tomorrow Bias24 and I are going to start on a remix for Fitz and the Tantrums…. Should be completed by early next week and then onto Halos.

I’m actually falling asleep at my computer right now…..pretty awesome… Imma continue the story tomorrow…

Night all

Nice teeth…..who’s your dentist?

It’s Monday morning…..

Crazy weekend for me. Did myself a lil sidebar action. Interesting crowd as usual. Music was neat. The staff is awesome.

Worked on Kaya Jone’s new single “Boyfriend”. The original has a real swing beat pop feel to it and bias24 and I gave it some UNAFKTD love. Its transforming itself into a anthem style progressive house track with a tempo change dubstep outro. I got to hear some of it on a big system this weekend and it HITS! Can’t wait for the release!

I had a lil’ party at my house this weekend. It was crazy… 2 bands, 1/6 of Fishbone, Dj MICHAELIS, BIAS24, lots of alcohol n’ stuff, strippers, girl on girl makeout sessions in a coffin, girls on the pole, putt putt golf, hot tubbin’, sharpie pen art on drunk passed out people, fireworks, tattoo’n, body odor, orgies (nate and friends), and last but not least….Jihad (our dog) eating a hot dog out of a drunk, unconscious guy’s ass which was also of course filled and covered with mustard and ketchup…… The LAPD finally showed up at 5am, not for the noise factor, but because they were concerned about the “ketchup in the ass” guy getting hypothermia from being in the front yard on a couch all night. This is how we do it in hollywood. I love my home, I love my friends.

Headin into the studio to work on the dubstep portion of Boyfriend. Also gearing up for Sidebar and Supperclub. This weekend is gonna rock. Check out my twitter for the pics of this past weekend’s madness.

Have a beautiful week my friends

Oh Yeah…..I actually gotta write somethin’

August 19, 2011

It’s been forever…..Lots of change in my business and personal life….

I got to spend some time with my boy this summer which was rad. He’s seriously the coolest kid I’ve ever met and I’m so proud of everything about him. Each moment with him was pure joy and saying good bye and sending him back to his mom was truly heartbreaking….yet motivating. I love my art, and so much of my drive for success in it is inspired by wanting to spend more time with my boy and having the means to do so…. So there’s a lil introspection on the personal life of me.

On a business standpoint, opportunities are coming at me from all directions. I finished up that 311 remix with my boy bias24. It came out sick. Nick was super stoked about it and we got invited to go to their show this Sunday, August 21st, in Santa Barbara. I’m also working on remixes for Kaya Jones and Halo as well… thinking about a high energy club banger for Kaya’s hit single “boyfriend” and a moody dubstep vibe for Halos’ “Hekla”. Last night I got a call from Josh Villalta, the drummer from 36 mafia, saying Dj Paul from 36 wants to meet up to discuss workin’ on a track. So there I was sittin’ in my office on sunset blvd and doheny, across from Paul, thinkin’ “is this really my life today”. Its UNREAL. I never fathomed doing the things I’m doing. And I owe it all to getting out of my own way and tapping into something other than my own, limited, human power; to saying yes to opportunity no matter what I think or feel about it; to putting my best foot forward; and to being open in life to anything. My life is never a bore…

And….I’m moving into a house with a bunch of other musicians, producers, writers, and tattoo artists. They bought out all the properties around their house so we can make noise all day and night. Jacuzzi in the front yard, Putt Putt golf course round the property, tattoos on the second floor and more… Kinda dreamy right?

So its all happening. And I am grateful. As soon as I can post these remixes I will…..Hope you’re day is beautiful….Until next time…..

Ladies and Gents…

July 15, 2011

It’s friday…..It’s beautiful outside….and I can care less about the 405 freeway. On the agenda: I’m excited to play at the Bev Wilshire tonight @SIDEBAR. It’s a cool little vibe which allows me to embark on a musical journey that will span every genre I’m in the mood to drop. I love that kind of freedom. I’m heading out to the studio after I play so I can avoid the whole “wake up and drive” thing. Not my cup-o-tea.

Tomorrow morning I’m getting into the beginning stages of a 311 remix I got handed a week ago. I’m really excited about it. They were one of my first really fun shows from when I was in highschool. I got to see 311 and No Doubt open u for them at the Palladium. Such an epic and fun show! And here I am getting the opportunity to work with Nick. So happy. UNAFKTD is doin’ it again.

Then I will be showing up to Supperclub round 6:30pm to set up my toys for soundcheck. I’m opening for DJ REFLEX tomorrow night. We always kill it together and get the crowd pumped. I love the energy in that place. Supperclub feels like family and I am truly grateful for that relationship and all of the people that put it together. Sunday….softball? if i can get up in time hahahha.

I’m also pleased to say that I am working with Josh Villalta, drummer for 36mafia on a dj/drummer/multimedia show. We gonna go on the road with it! YAY!. We’re also getting blessed with special guest appearances that you won’t want to miss. We’re called “Beverly Kills”. Look out for us. We’re coming for you!

My son is coming into town on the 30th and I’m really looking forward to spending time with him, hiking, camping, and killing eachother on the xbox.

My life is beautiful. My purpose is clear. I’m grateful for it all and especially for you…..

August 7, 2010

And……I GET to relax for a moment before the madness that I love so much washes over this weekend. This is one of those rare moments for me when I get to sit on the couch and wait for my love to come home. I’ve been downloading some new tunes for this weekend’s fun.  Tomorrow night I headline this Fundraiser for the Sober Community @ Fais Do-Do and I was thinking about opening it up with some skull crushing, bass pulsing dubstep…..but maybe I should work my way into that. I’ll feel it out as I usually do.  I’m looking forward to heading up north to the Outside Lands Festival with my love! My artist picks for that weekend are:

It should be amazing! As far as life for me….. Things are moving along…..The drive to succeed has never been so great within me and I feel so much love and support from the people around me. I am so grateful for that. I am so grateful for you. Never have I felt so blessed as I do now and they just keep coming!  I hope you all have a beautiful weekend. Be safe and loving…..

Here’s a lil something for your eardrum:

Oh and this is how I did San Antonio Texas…….

August 2, 2010

Killin’ it everywhere……

It’s been Forever…..

August 2, 2010

So much has happened since I last wrote….. I played with my all time favorite dj in the universe Mix Master Mike @ La Vida in Hollywood. That was such a treat for me.  His segment in the movie “Scratch” is what inspired me to teach myself how to scratch… Here’s the link to the clip:

I played @ Industry, Colony, XIV, SOAK, and in San Antonio Texas.  I just got signed by Next Music Management and am currently creating my EPK to shop for book agents.

I feel like my life has been swallowed up by the whole top 40 hip hop house mashup thing and am looking to forward to producing some remixes soon breaking free from the monotony of the LA club scene.

I’m posting a new mix from the SOAK party that took place Saturday July 31st 2010. It’s a journey in deep, soulful, sexy house……you know, the pool side happy shit.

I’ve been stoked on playing 90’s hip hop courtesy of DJ Bakdraft.

I’m playing in New York in the end of  August and am currently talking with some people that found me in Buenos Aires to play there. That’ll be a trip…..

I just a new super thorough bio which i sent in for editing today.

I’m happy, grateful for my life, for my friends, for my family, for my opportunities, and for the woman I love……

Thanks for your patience…..
