WCC RADIO-EP042 available for download


WCC RADIO-EP042 is now available for download or streaming from Soundcloud. Check the radio page for the AAC and MP3. This one is meant to be played while you drive down the coast with your convertible's top down. Especially the first half of the episode which is not what you usually expect from the show. Most of the first hour is mid tempo Disco edits which is something Torin and I have gotten more into lately. Especially at the beginning of our sets. This was also mainly inspired by an artist from Australia who does these kind of edits and remixes named Late Nite Tuff Guy (L.N.T.G.). The first 6 tracks on this episode are reworks by him. He is truly talented. You should really follow him on SoundCloud because most of the times he lets people download his edits (how I got these) but they are usually limited to only about 100 DL per track. So when you get a notification that he has something new you better jump on it. I hope you like this little change of pace and the summer grooves.

WCC RADIO EP-040 and 041available for download


WCC RADIO EP-040 and 041 are ready for download. Actually 040 has been ready for a while and has been on Soundcloud for almost a month but since I got slammed again at work and with gigs I did not have time to update the site. Again if you are following me or The West Coast Collective on Facebook you would have known. What’s new is that on the radio page you will find the indexed AAC of both shows which a lot people prefer over MP3. There is an explanation of the differences on the radio page. You can stream the shows right below or take them with you.

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.

The Vault is Here.

New page to the site! Back by popular demand my legacy mixes are back online. You will find here every mix that I did before 2005. Including my first three mixes from 2002 that have never been available before as MP3s (they used to be in crappy 32kps RealAudio). The ones who have been following me for almost 10 years will remember After Hours, After Hours II, and San Francisco Dub Sessions - you can now get them in high quality audio.

Also in The Vault you will find 12 episodes of Shameless Sessions which was the precursor and what WCC RADIO was born of. My original radio show on SS Radio UK where some episodes have my not so sexy voice like a real radio show (don't worry it's not much).

Visit The Vault and start taking a trip down memory lane.

I am now on SoundCloud

SoundCloud-Logo-300x300 copy

I have just opened a SoundCloud account. I did this to be able to easily imbed an audio player on this blog so you can stream the radio shows and mixes directly from here or you can get the code to imbed it on your site, blog, Facebook, etc. The player will also allow you to write comments and download an MP3 version of the set. If you prefer the AAC version you can still find it in the Radio Page. If you are a producer and would like to send me a track you can do it easily now by sending it through my drop box.
