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

July 25, 2011

Which means that I survived last week….still here. My life is the best kind of hectic ever. So stoked for every moment of it.

Last week i dj’d thursday at Falcon. The concept was cool, and the venue is pretty, but next time we have to bring in some extra sound. That spot needs some thump.

The Beverly Wilshire was fun. I’m always amazed when I can drop NWA and Dubstep at a super upscale “family” hotel in Beverly Hills, and when Dr. Dre’s “Let’s get high” dropped, the whole bar was singin’ along with that shit. There were of course those two drunk women who were asking for “it’s raining men”….that asked for Gaga 8 times in a row and had to make sure I knew that they have met Lady Gaga….and that would give me the “next song” hand gesture as soon as I would drop a track…. I tried to get a picture of these two gems for you to see em’ but it was a fail. Sometimes I think a taser should be a part of a dj’s travel equipment. I’m not much of a “complain about people”

type of dude…..but tasing some would be cool.

Supper Club Saturday Night was EEEEEppppppiiiccccc….. I LOVE THAT PLACE! I love EVERYONE who works there. I walk into that place and I feel like home and I’m with my family. I had an awesome set there and I really believe that when I walk into that place, I’m filled with so much love that it actually comes out in how I play. When I got there I was exhausted….Like REALLY exhausted. Hadn’t slept really all week between work, studio, and djing. But as soon as I stepped up to the decks it was like a whole new me emerged. I was filled with LIFE. It was just one more reminder that this IS what I’m supposed to be doing. I love music. I got to talk shit with DJ Reflex after the show. I like that dude a lot . Got some pics on my twitter from that night you should check. My homies from Hyper Crush came out to support. Love them. I dropped their track “Fingers Up” and that song got a GREAT response. People were stoked and the crowd really connected to it. Le Panda got some amazing pics of the night that I’ll post here.

Now its Monday and tonight back in the studio to work on this 311 remix. The track is mostly laid out not. Nick Hexum describes it as “sick”. Hope you like it. I’m pretty stoked on it.

If you “like” my facebook fan page, you’ll have first access to this remix and other mixes of mine:

Anyways…..love you all…. Enjoy the pics….Talk soon

Stay tuned for upcoming “Beverly Kills” dates… gonna be so fetch

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:

August 5, 2010

I’m not a religious man, but I believe in something….. I read somewhere tonight that it is suggested that I believe in a Spirit in the Universe that knows neither time nor limitation….

As I read this I had a realization…..

That thing I believe in, that takes care of me, that loves me, that is within me, knows no limitation for me or concept of time. This simply means that any limitations I perceive are of my own making, but the reality is that my potential is beyond my conception; that there are no time frames, deadlines, or expectations in the grand scheme of things. I believe this applies to everyone. This means that ANYTHING is possible. All i need to do is put one foot in front of the other following my dreams, and be of maximum service to my fellows…….

Have a beautiful day.

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

Killin’ it everywhere……

OK…….

December 17, 2009

So i have an absolutely FAVORITE new track……U must check it out if u get a chance…..and when u do, play it loud as fuck……it’s HUGE….

Death (Chase & Status Remix) by the White Lies

This song opens with an 80’s ballad stadium feel. It builds slow with a surprising halftime beat…..then it builds and builds into the sickest Deadmau5 organ dubstep baseline ever.  I wouldn’t even limit this track by calling it dubstep…..it is purely MASSIVE…… I found it on the Hype Machine not too long ago……

On another note…..I’ve been busy bring music to this 2009 holiday season…. I just started a new residency on Thursday nights @ the Green Door as well as another night @ Palihouse making my residency there a Monday and Wednesday Night thing.

I just got back from Kentucky where I was asked to talk about my experience  recovering from drug addiction……It was good to give back and be able to help others by sharing the pitfalls of my past.

New mixes are coming to my podcast soon. I’m inspired to make a dubstep mix which will be my debut attempt at conquering this genre….I’m excited to hear what that shit is gonna sound like.  In addition, I’m long overdue for a new electrotrash mix and playing @ Palihouse tonight I was inspired to make a chill old skool hip hop mix.  I hope u guys enjoy it!!!!!!!

No go find that track and DOWNLOAD it!!!!!!!!

I’m Back!

November 29, 2009

Cheers

I just got home from playing Coco Deville….  It was an event for some t-mobile shit…..  So what was in the giftbag????? Not a phone…….it was a mug. WTF?!?!? Awesome.  The crowd was ghetto for Coco……Lots of Eazy-E, Snoop Dogg, Fly Boys, and lets not forget a lil’ Ginuwine…..Pony got those girls gettin’ low…….Some chick puked in the back and at the end of the night the manager was walking around with a lost bra…….how does that happen.  People were stoked, singing along n’ shit.  My girl and I came up on some crucial iphone accessories…..

I just joined the Next Music Group Dj pool and they gave me a stack of cd’s to go through….. Looking forward to hearing new tunes and tell u whats what.

Getting ready for a big mansion party saturday night!!!!!

Goodnight Peeps!
