Nómada Beach Sessions!

 



Our friends at Nomada Beach Club have invited me to play there the last few years. This year has been a bit interesting due to the GLOBAL PANDEMIC but as much as possible, they have provided a haven for those needing a bit of good vibes, food, drink & music in El Garraf (the coolest comarca around! #HomeTeamPride) Anyway, I'll be there this Thursday and I am to livestream the session, so head over to my Mixcloud page starting at 19hCET/10amPDT. Should be happening till 12:30amCET/3:30pmPDT.

Below is the last session I livestreamed from there.

Some updates...


 

Inspired by #ActualRafiq and his session on #Omakase (#MaggieMoon's show on #Twitch) I made a Linktree! Rafiq's set was #LiquidDnB - smooth, musical stuff. He makes & releases music, too so give him a look & listen...
#FortKnoxRecordings crew reached out for a guest mix--we were honored! We hope you and your world feel funked! #FunkTheWorld #DjMix #WorldMusic #Funk Premier on #MagneticMagazine: magneticmag.com/2021/08/premie…

That George Benson gig...

We've all been locked down (except for New Zealand--good on yous!) and trolling through our online worlds, right? Well, my wife managed to find a GEM online... That time I played after the legend that is George Benson! It was here in Sitges at the Jardins Terramar Festival, thanks to some lovely people who are also fans, Oriol Borràs of Plan B & Carles Gilibets director of the festival. This clip shows me playing, but you won't really hear any of my session, unfortunately. There's plenty of other great sessions waiting for you at www.Mixcloud.com/djtbird
Mostly it's just "proof" that I played... I cued it up to the part with me, so I show up for about a second right when you hit "play."

10 Record Challenge! (Pt. 2)

6/10: My 1st fusion album. Was huge Zep fan. Older step-brother mentioned Beck. Raided his LPs when he was away. Just found out this was #Top10Album in 1974! #Listen2TheElders #InfluentialAlbums #JeffBeck



7/10: Music bible 7 volumes deep. #AcidJazz #TripHop #JazzHop #UkSoul #DnB #Dub #RareGroove #BrokenBeat #Techno #DeepHouse #WorldMusic #GlobalBeats my interest either started or deepened due to these #Compilations #InfluentialAlbums



8/10: More elder pilferage. 1st exposure to #JacoPastorius & #WayneShorter (no idea he'd been legend since 60s.) #JoeZawinul's use of #Rhodes #Arp2600 + #Oberheim still amazes me. #JazzFusion #InfluentialAlbums #WeatherReport



9/10: Started w #Autobahn, but this always meant more. Saw 81 USA tour, remember #PocketCalculator on radio. Thought #PlanetRock was remix of Numbers. Remixed @MatadorSoul #MatadorSoulSounds cover of Computer Love last year. #RipFlorianSchneider #InfluentialAlbums #Kraftwerk




10/10: 2fer! Can't separate - #BrianEno & #DavidByrne on both & released months apart. Unwitting intro to #KingSunnyAde (thanks Lorin Roser!) Always loved the way "Help Me Somebody" revealed musicality of black preachers. #InfluentialAlbums #TalkingHeads
