A little promo for a big monthly!

A much-liked monthly is returned to my town of Cincinnati called PRESSURE.  I was fortunate enough to be tapped to rock out at the first one next month and in hopes to generate as much attention as possible I did a little promo for the event (which is 8.21.14).   It’s 24 tracks in about 45 minutes and hopefully touches a little something for everyone!

This time of year is always my favorite.  The few weeks right before Summer when everyone’s excited that it’s finally warm and there’s leaves on the trees and blankets on the beach.  Every year I try to do a mix that captures a few of the vibes I really like to feel in this time and they’re always the most fun podcasts to do.  So here’s 2014’s Summer mix:

I will put it on soundcloud with a tracklist in a few days.  For now just grab it on my little ol’ blog in the link above  :)   SHARE AWAY!!!  <3


We here at Dance Hard Die Hard champion those local (*cringe*) DJs and producers who have seen the bigger picture and are head & shoulders above the droves of people who haven’t quite seen the aforementioned ‘picture.'   My friend Firecat451 is one such person.  Being involved in the Cincinnati/Columbus scene for what we in the biz call 'a grip’, he’s been able to maintain a steady flow of crowds & fans as well as stay up front in the music game.  Oh, he also MCs sometimes ;)

Since he and I have worked together so many times I invited him to give us a little exclusive somethin-somethin.  This is what he delivered.  An hour of feel-good bass for the windows down changing of the seasons!
