Boston’s DJ duo Soul Clap has been around quite a while, gaining a lot of notoriety around the globe with their original productions and forward-thinking DJ sets.  Recently they’ve been invited to join one of electronic music’s most exclusive and highly coveted clubs- making an appearance on Pete Tong’s Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 in the UK.  I’m really proud of these guys, representing Boston across the globe and making a big name for themselves!  Here’s the link to download or play straight from Soundcloud- enjoy!!

My Favorite Sharam Mix!

Sharam - Essential Mix Studio Session - 29.08.09 ( Essential Mix of The Year 2009 ) I’ve spent so many hours of my life in Photoshop and I enjoy it most of the time, especially when those creative ah-ha moments happen but what really makes the time fly is putting on your headphones and listening to a great dj set. You escape into Photoshop land and before you know it it’s 3AM and your design looks dope!

So after all these years I’ve accumulated a huge collection of dj sets that date back to 2001. I thought I’d start sharing my favorites with you guys and spread the joy. This set by Sharam is magical! Storytelling with music at it’s best. Check it out and escape into Photoshop land or where ever you like :)

DJ Paul DaileyPaul Dailey has been around the block a few times to say the least. He’s been djing for 20+ years, writes for DJ Times on occasion, and knows his music so I always appreciate his point of view on our industry. Here’s an interesting post from his website about dj’s wearing a promoters hat.
