I hope you enjoy the mix I recorded for October 2014.

After speaking with a close friend and former colleague, with whom I used to edit a certain magazine’s music section, I came to the realization that I’m not as interested in DJing for gigs these days. Instead, I find myself increasingly drawn to towards DJing for kicks. We discussed some well-known outlets for such efforts, most notably the Back to Mine and DJ-Kicks compilations.

With all of that in mind, and with a healthy amount of new and exciting music at my fingertips, I embarked on a true “I-just-want-to-hear-how-these-tunes-sound-together-because-I-dig-them” sort of DJ mix. The result is “Fall Back,” a mix filled with all of the melancholy and angst inspired by autumn and Daylight Savings Time. We will all ‘fall back’ in a just a few weeks and I hope you’re listening along when that happens.

Listen to “Fall Back” on SoundCloud.

You can also find a few of my mixes on Mixcloud.

After a long hiatus, I’m happy to have the Droopzilla website up and running again.

We’re using WordPress this time around (Joomla! I still got love for ya) but you can expect the same sort of content: DJ mixes, music reviews, event previews, and the occasional dispatch about what’s going on in the world. We might even have some art news and book reviews…dare to dream.

It goes without saying (but I’m saying it) that I’m glad you stopped by. I look forward to giving you a piece of my mind one of these days.
