Videos of Something Else! at Radio C/C

Radio C/C is the new home for Something Else! One of the cool things about the new venue is the DJ equipment so I can do proper DJ sets or invite guests to do the same and another is video capability!


Sonar Week Session pt 1

Playing for Todd Terry... ...via contest... + Gig in BCN!


Todd Terry
. Proper legend, mostly in the House Music world, but not exclusively. Folks from NYC seem to be more complex, fortunately. Anyway, outside of fans of House his probably most known work is a remix he did for Everything But The Girl (legends of their own, but we're not getting into that today) and their massive hit "Missing" (click title for original version.) Below is what Mr Terry did that made this ETBG's first hit...



He's hosting a contest on Mixcloud for those of us who think of ourselves as DJs who play House. I can be a competitive person so it was like a magnet and paperclip... Below is the set I submitted as my entry.  Enjoy and share with friends!



This Thursday (as always for the last few months) I will be doing my show Something Else! on Radio C/C from 20-22h UTC+1. At the top of this page you can hear some archived shows in the player. After the radio, I have a gig in the center of the city! First there will be a Hiphop/Jazz session at Barcelona's new venue Candy (c/ Escudellers, 5 Barcelona) with Blu Rum 13 featuring Ray Colom and then I go on to transition into Bunzu's Afro House sound provided by Bruno M &a Dr Moods. It should be a lot of fun--see you there!

New Video, FINALLY!


So... I've been doing radio at a new spot for the last few months. Still in Poble Nou, but a different setup--more DJ-oriented. Something Else! Radio is now Thursdays 8-10pm on www.RadioCC.club Last Saturday we were part of Poble Nou's "Open Day" and provided music at Espacio 88 from 10am til 10pm featuring many of the DJ from the station. I was asked to play 5pm til 6pm after Guille de Juan (Playtime) and before Big Mic (WOKSESSIONSNDS)

I'm still eclectic as ever...

Thanks to Benji & Victor for video and audio respectively.

Vibe Select Classics - UPTOWN!!

Click for event info HERE


The latest fruit of the tree that is Vibe Select is Vibe Select Classics.  This Friday we're taking the Vibe uptown for a swanky get-down on Diagonal.  R.D. will be in the house and I will be joined on turntables by veteran Barcelona DJs Guille de Juan & DJ Switch.  Super-excited to be in Blue Boite Barcelona, a gorgeous place away from the craziness that is central Barcelona in the summer...

R.D. & I had wanted to do an urban event that represents the classier, finer elements of that scene and this venue is definitely in line with that vision.



Get your tickets HERE and we'll see you on the dancefloor!

Traveling (again...)


Currently writing from Munich, Germany.  It's my first time out here and I'm playing for a private event on Sunday. 

Arrived Friday and had a blast going out!  Hung with Dusty from Jazz & Milk who took me to a family-oriented Italian restaurant ro start off.  We were seated next to a few people who seemed to be having a great time.  When they left, one of the men made a point of rapping his knuckles on our table and saying goodnight to us.  Although a bit odd, it was definitely coming from a place of friendliness.  I thought maybe he knew Dusty, but as it turns out he was just being social...  Afterward we went to Corleone.cc to hear D2E3 who was PHENOMENAL!!!  The venue is a lot of fun and his music just completed the vibe.

After that we got a kebap (traditional german food--via turkey) and went to hear the man from Kalakuta Soul rip it up at DIE REGISTRATUR.  After a great set of funky-disco-afro-latin-soul
we called it a night and went to the booth to give the DJ his proper respect.  ...At which point we were gifted the record you see at the top of this post!

I've been informed by the other Chico Alto that I must try Schweinsbraten with
Semmelknoede in a traditional restaurant with a beer garden.  I guess I know what happens tonight..

Switching subjects, it's been a really busy summer!  We like that and one of the things keeping me busy is more radio shows with Barcelona City Fm!  Deep Tuesdays broadcast live from Bar 68 7-9pm, my usual Something Else! Radio Wednesdays 10pm-12mid and Vibe Select Barcelona Saturdays from 8-10pm with R.D.  Tueday is a house session, Wednesday is eclectic and Saturday is Soul/R&B/Hiphop.



Other upcoming live gigs include:

Sat 20 August @ Bar 68 10pm-3am, Barcelona
Sun 21 August @ Xiringuito Zero 4-9pm, Vilanova
Fri 26 @
Bar 68 10pm-3am, Barcelona
