Paw, a party in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco, thrown in the infamous Deco Lounge and Bar, played host to quite the festive evening a few weeks back when I had the opportunity to DJ with my good friend and producer Trevor Sigler. Trevor and I have worked together for nearly a year, him putting together tracks and samples and sharing what new things he learns, and I forcing mixes upon him at all hours of the day and night.
With a target for bears, otters, cubs, and other furry wildlife, Paw drew quite the crowd that evening and we were able to keep people bouncing till the wee hours of the morning. I opened the dance floor that night, and what is featured here is the first hour of my set. Trevor and I decided the best thing to do would be to alternate hour for hour to keep things fresh and lively: and since our styles are so closely aligned, we were able to weave a magical few hours. This first hour features some slower tempo tracks, as I've thoroughly dabbled in this year, with a knack for the disco and the softer tones of house.
Some artists worth noting here are Cut Copy -- clearly a force to be reckoned with since their debut album nearly three years ago. Also, Benoit & Sergio: two legends of the scene. Of course, my sampling wouldn't be quite complete without Dr. Kucho, who I believe has a great ability to mix elements of disco and harder progressive nearly seamlessly.
The mix picks up quite a bit of bpm along the way, so its great for getting from your bar stool to the dance floor. Trust me, I know, I saw! Enjoy the mix, and if you feel so persuaded, feedback is best directed to djbrianmaier at gmail dot com.
