We Give Thanks!

Whoa! What a busy week! The Full Blast showcase at Littlefield last week was a complete success. It's been a long time since I've thrown a showcase and although there were a lot of nerve wracking moments, the experience was fully rewarding. Big ups go out to all the artists that performed: FRESH DAILY, DUJEOUS, MIDNIGHT MAGIC, LOER VELOCITY and of course SYNFINITE. Also I want to thank DJ I-Truth, Abhita "Beats" Austin, MCMI, my play cousin Kim Sanchez and my lovely wife Sophie Myrtil-McCourty for the love and support they provided to making this night a success.

My band SYNFINITE really rocked the house that night. In fact all the artists did exceptionally well, but the feeling I got from performing that night was life changing. It was the actualization of a dream that made my musical direction a lot more clearer to me. Also the results of the performance presented a few opportunities for me to connect with some amazing artists that are requesting SYNFINITE's services as remixers. Be on the lookout for that.

Thanks to Andrew Frawley for playing drums for us during our set. You are awesome!

Lastly, I want to thank Shamita Carriman for interviewing us on her blog NY Music Lawyer. She's been in my corner and my gratitude to her is everlasting. You can read the interview the interview here.

Wow! It's been a minute since I've posted anything on my own blog. Shameful! Anyhoo, it's been a great summer, probably one of the best summers of my adult life and it's been crazy busy.. what with free shows in NYC, hanging out with family and friends and most importantly recording and creating new music; sometimes you just don't have the time to write or tweet about everything little thing going in your life (all you celebutantes I'm looking at you).
Being that the summer is coming to a close, I decided to put together a showcase called FULL BLAST featuring my band SYNFINITE, our Midnight Sun Studios fam Midnight Magic, A-Ok Collective superstar Fresh Daily and my main dudes Dujeous.My ace I-Truth will be DJing for the evening and my sister Beats will be handling the sound. A family affair. It's all going down at Littlefield which is located at 622 Degraw Street in Brooklyn. It's only 10 dollars, that's like $2.50 for each act! Google map it!!!
I'm really excited about this night because it's the first time I've thrown a showcase in over a decade. People who know from back in the day may remember that I used to throw a monthly open mic showcase called R-n-R 101 at the West End Gate in upper Manhattan. Plus I'm performing with people whose work I respect and love and I'm creating the musical environment that I want to be a part of.
In other news, I recently performed a brief but intense Ableton Live set at my homie DJ Ace's BBQ out on the island (Long Island, that is). Lots of good food, good people and good music. Peep a snippet of the set in the video posted below
