▶ NCM Guest Mix 001: Markus V.

Markus Verhaaren is one of my Audioflo alumni going way back to our downtempo nights at W. Lounge here in SLC. He's a quiet, talented fellow who's been taking his DJ career to new heights since we connected last. After 9 years in Arizona and fresh from his weekly residencies at "AZ88" in Scottsdale and "Hanny's" in downtown Phoenix, Markus is back in Utah and full of soulful energy.

That's why I asked Markus to recreate the incredibly 'funky' opening set he played for the Nightmares on Wax show last month at Urban Lounge. He obliged, and here we have our first NCM "Guest Mix Exclusive"  from Markus V.

The Jesse Walker Experience

I'm proud to release a new mix I'm calling The Jesse Walker Experience (cheeky title) recorded at last week's Stir-Friday. This was the cherry on top of a grand birthday week and an extraordinary night on the music front. Everything just came together the way I wanted it to with my luminaries on the dancefloor in agreement. The tequila may have helped.

*Thanks to the unbelievably cool Flash n' Flare for letting me be his guest. It's always a pleasure to play with him and for my friends at Zest Kitchen & Bar.

Thank you to everyone who came to dance and also celebrate my 15th Anniversary with Mark this past Friday. Quite a momentous occasion (search hashtag #mj15) and a truly fantastic night on the dance floor at Zest. Thanks to the immensley talented Flash & Flare at Stir-Friday for hosting me and the crew! This is dedicated to all the amazing people who've been part of our journey over the years.

Live @ Luna

Hey thanks for coming out to support Luna at Zest last night everyone! You know I appreciate your being there on the tail end of a long holiday week. Many thanks to Shaoma for opening the party and to our dancers most of all. You are the best! A recording of my mix is at Soundcloud.

Beyond The Red Door

Beyond-the-red-doorWhat a great time I had revisiting and playing at the Red Door this past Saturday. The 10th Anniversary celebration was a big hit and weather could not have been more cooperative - a good thing with me being on the patio.

Figured I would post the full night of music up here for anyone that might care for it. If you were to drink a bottle and a half of delicious French wine and play this mix... you could possibly recreate the environment.

My thanks to Louise, John, Chet and the whole damn crew at Red Door for bringing me back and being so fun to get to know over the years. (Also to Lilly and Hidenorio for flying in!). Salt Lake wouldn't be the same without you.

Dynamite electro party jams from James, an excellent build up. Then, I played one of my best house sets in as long as I can remember. Straight up energy going in, then some pure garage, chicago jaxin', french disco, a touch of progressive, an anthem or two, deep tech and deep FEEL GOOD H-O-U-S-E!!!  Best part... you gotta listen for us rambling on the mic at the very end. Hoolarious!
