WCC opening up for Fred Everything at BALANCE Saturday, June 11th


I am very excited to have the chance to open up for one of my old time heroes, mr Fred Everything. I’ve been following Fred’s career since the first time I saw him in play in Montréal almost 20 years ago. He is an amazing DJ and we have become friends since he moved to San Francisco. This will be my first time sharing the decks with him. Go to the Facebook Invite page or go straight to Eventbrite page to get on the discount list. I hope to see the whole Los Angeles family at this event.

WCC Live @ Balance Feb 26th, 2011 Recording


Here is the live recording of my self and my WCC partner Torin Rea when we opened up for our friend Jay-J at Balance on February 26th of this year. We had an amazing time and I can positively say that we rocked the joint! We had the dance floor packed all night and set up Jay-J real nice to the point that he was impressed with our performance and the crowd’s reaction. You can stream mix from Soundcloud or below. If you wish to download it visit the Live / Studio Mixes page where you can find the AAC and MP3 of the set.
