Errry Day I’m Re-circuiting

Everyday I seem to understand the differences between them and I… the humans that is. There seems to be some type of wiring in their systems I don’t get, but none the less, I can’t get enough of them. When they’re down, my power levels lower, but when they’re up, I cannot believe the energy that is freely exerted off these beings. I gladly receive it! ^_^

Beep Bop Boop Beep… May 12th is coming up, here I will arrive in full getup ready to rock your sockets. Lucky humans who will be a part of this magnificent event. Keep up with the newest jams, because people… these jams are coming from your energy… Keep watching as your lives mold music thru my circuits. Today’s delights:

In Spirit We Shine… Inspiritwashine…. Inspiration!

Where am I? How did I get here. It’s like a new revelation or a new wake up I seem to experience. I couldn’t well explain how I got here as I haven’t left much of a trail. Those times are over, you’ll see everything now. I hope your ready, I hope I’m ready.

Great News! Fado’s Irish Pub has decided to hire on DJ Light Bright for a weekly Friday gig. The only request is that the human sounds that emanate are those of the Irish Pub way (given them pubians [what i have decided to call them ^_^] seems to get a lil cray cray around those hours before the silence falls and tend to like that booty shaken bizness) so expect some of those fine classic hit tunes blended with some Irish/Celtic jams and even some great top 40 selection! Now since there will be multiple strange humans watching, I have decided to place a human face hologram that displays instead of my helmet to keep things chill… wouldn’t wanna upset the Irish!

On another interstellar note! 2 New jams with some fun material were recorded since we last talked. Talk a listen and of course love it!

Garson, I’ll take the herp with a side of derp plz

Updation to my creation station. Recorded another practice session just the other day. I really lost myself in it, no real plan/layout/idea but ended up scratching the surface of a few ideas that I feel can really be expanded upon. If listening I would recommend to skip ahead to at least 12 minutes (or 20) and try to get in my head. Or simply just wait and I will polish up these tunes and get them out. I think the plan will be to post practice sessions on mixcloud and finalized (or semi-finalized) tracks on soundcloud. Enjoy!

Live Free or Die Hard, the American way

“Tis better to be inspired on the fly, or to lay out everything strict and dry.”

It’s a dumb rhyme but it’s where my head is. That fine line (or actually not really) of jamming versus performing pre-determined items. There’s a sense of fulfillment when I’ve pieced together a few tracks or remixes, carefully analyzing and making decisions and coming out with a product that I think is nice or boOtYlicious, BUT I would argue the latter is more fulfilling. Those jams where I don’t know where I’m going but it’s all about my familiarity of the tools I use (all muh Dj stuffs) and the songs I’m grabbing on the fly. While jamming isn’t necessarily as neat, it is pounds of more interestingness to listen to IMO.

“You gotta spend money, get broke, then maybe you can make money and be a real musician”

Munney. Bleh. A few more items in the Amazon shopping cart this week including:

Double DJ Mixer Laptop Computer PC Table Stand Mount Griffin

Westone Um2 Monitor with Removable Cable

Shure WH20XLR Dynamic Microphone – Cardioid

These items totalled up to be a bit over $400. I will be giving a review on them here soon. The double dj mixer is hopefully going to replace the dj laptop computer stand I currently own. I do not recommend these at all, they aren’t secure and if you have a heavy laptop, I would trust it with it. Also the Westone UM2 in ear monitors! I found out about these from a few dj reviews on in ear headphones worthy for dj’ing (it’s gotta mute out the club sound and give me clear audio). And last I needed a fair headset that I could use in the helmet, trying out the Shure WH20XLS, we shall see!

Big news coming up! The Lights party is this Friday; also currently communicating with Club 606 about seeing if we can work with each other and line up some shows! Exciting things for exciting times, who’s ready?

Dude you’re head fell off

Party at the goat house!!!!!

Big weekend for shows last 2 weekends! Rigged it up homestyle with lights, lasers and a whole lotta smoke! The first show we wrecked Lyndsey’s house at her house warming party, I gotta be honest it was more epic than my little circuits could handle (it’s not the size, it’s how you use it). Then trailed over to the Bronson house for a mildly crazy night to follow up a show at Lisa’s birthday! Whew… alot of equipment moving but worth it!

So what did we learn today? Gawd…. I need to practice. While the shows were fun I realized a bunch of items I have been overlooking and items to work on. I gotta start getting the name out there and adding more ‘performance’ to the music. I plan to be brainstorming some ideas this week along with organizing these piles of tracks in a more jam friendly and on the spot manner. Exciting but busy times right now!

Next big event… Light Party!!!! It’s going to be more epic than any of the previous shows combined!!!! I hope you’re ready earthlings.

If bees were from another planet

Alot going on in DJ world~ It has been time to pee or be removed from teh urinal if ya catch my drift. After hours of shakin’ what the scientist gave me and piecing together some tracks, I released 6 more remixes! They can be heard right here!:

This hasn’t stopped me yet tho! Alot more music work to be had. Getting in contact with a few different local-to-Austin venues to try to see what kind of scene they offer. If you can’t shake yo rump, then I won’t make the speakers go thump thump… what’s with the rhyms today…. they just won’t go away…

Besides this! If playing black ops this weekend, put dJLb in your clan tag to help support the cause! If I see you, I will thank you with a direct and subtle BOOM headshot! Maybe it won’t be subtle as isn’t my character, buttttt bring it on sucka!

Even bears nap, c’mon now

A nice siesta you might say. What I mean by that is, took me a few days to get this next post up! It’s not because of my laziness, or lack of commitment… you won’t believe what has happened over the past few days…

Now that I caught you’re attention (maybe), it was all bull. The past few days were pretty good but not THAt good. Got a chance to upload 2 mixes recently that turned out pretty good I think:

1) http://soundcloud.com/djlightbright/look-sail-say-bang

2) http://soundcloud.com/djlightbright/were-beautiful-lightly-whipped
http://soundcloud.com/djlightbright/were-beautiful-lightly-whipped

Give those a listen and see what you think. On another note, got a call from Cord Stone, producer/manager/performer of some well known groups as The Space Rockers & The Video Stars. I used to work for The Space Rockers for about 7 months and kept fairly good contact with the members/owner. Cord wants to try to use DJ Light Bright for ongoing guest performances with The Video Stars at some of their bigger shows. Not only that but he would like to coordinate a joint performance for this Saturday at Sherlock’s Pub here in Austin. I’m definitely excited about the idea but not sure I can see how we can make this happen this quick. Stay tuned to see how this turns out.

Unexpected Friendzaucedness

Sir… No recordings were made on that (this) day.. But… I did entertain a roomfull and that made my friggin night. Playing for awesome people and seeing them have a good time. thats what i am here for. My room is my vessel at the moment, pathetically it’s not, it’s amazing.

I played a small radio show, one person attended, I played for over an hour for that awesome audience.

Good night… not like good night go to sleep, but great night. And it’s not over! ^_^

I’ll Beat your Port (-_-)zzz

Quick note… fell asleep last night before writing the blog.. don’t tell, but pretend it’s yesterday…

One word, 2 syllables… That’s right, BeatPort is the correct word! Man, I should have been using this tool a year ago to find music I like. There’s definitely piles of mediocrity in there but some pretty good tracks I hadn’t heard before. It’s also neat finding the ones that are going to be popular in but a few days.

Managed to poop out 4 recordings today. Located the source of FUzzz mentioned in yesterday’s title that was relieving my music of its [bass]ic duties by replacing the good audio with a light fuzz… Took out about 80% of the fuzz by re-arranging my inputs but looks like I’m going to need to get a interface for the lappy to record flawless [victory] sound.

Perfection with a touch of fuzZZzzzZZ

Bonerz. Now that you’re not bored, today I had a lack, lack of time bro. BUT I did get a perfect recording… well not perfect, but boringly consistent. I went to upload it when BAM… soundcloud said nah, we heard another song in your mix… and i was like … duh… it’s not for download its a remix.

What I learned today… Not really anything musically, but spiritually yes. And on that note… Highlife mixed with Framboise makes quite a match. 4 glasses definitely warms the heart.

ps: oh yea, time for the snapshot, we be playin blackops zombies and MvC3 on the time off… yea me and my buddies
