the countdown is on! just over two weeks until my new album CHURCH will be released worldwide on CD+digital, with double vinyl coming a month later. it’s been a super fun process getting the album together, and now i can’t wait to unveil it to ears far and wide 🙂
to celebrate the new album, i’m doing TWO nights of live launch shows at our favorite LA spot, THE BLUE WHALE – MAY 24 + 25, memorial day weekend. there’s a great cast of guests joining me, and as well as pre-sale discount tickets, you can pre-order the CD now and pick it up and get it signed at the show – before it even gets released.
invite your friends and be ready for two great nights of music – see you there!

In 1996, J.ROCC released a mix tape called Syndromes. We didn’t come across it until 2001, but once we did it forever changed our lives. ArtDontSleep has been profoundly influenced by The Funky President of the Beat Junkie collective known as J.ROCC. Fast forward to 2013 and we thought it would be amazing to bring this mix tape experience to life by one of our favorite arranger composers today, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson. Miguel is one of the few people on planet Earth that can take a masterpiece like syndromes, a piece that is un-conventional in nature, and elevate it to the next level. Bear witness to one of the freshest concerts happening in all of 2013. Something so unique and original that we actually don’t have a precedent to show you as an example.
J.Rocc was kind enough to edit a portion of the Syndromes mix tape and allow us to pass it on to you for free download. Please spread it around as far and wide as you would like: https://soundcloud.com/artdontsleep/j-rocc-syndromes-remix
nueve – a monthly musical potluck celebrating music lovers and their collections in revolutions of nine.
This month at Nueve we are celebrating all Scorpius energy. Some pretty musical/magical scorpios and scorpio aficionados have been invited to share nine of their favorite records on what happens to be the 9th nueve this year! synchronicity and alignment at the top of the season. can’t wait to share/reveal the selectors, see y’all there!
△9 » here is the ‘vinyl potluck’ science: there is a sign up sheet by the turntables when you walk in… bring records & sign up if you wanna play. now, here is the math: 9 records at aprox 2min each is a 18-20min set, allowing 3 folks an hour. Nueve is from 7-11p that’s about a 9-12 person record potluck rotation.
