Kind of a misnomer to say I "just got back" from San Francisco, but I did just get back into the office, so it's not totally inaccurate. I flew down there Friday night to see Michael Mayer and Reinhard Voigt, from the Cologne, Germany techno/house label/shop/distributor Kompakt, rip shit eight ways till Sunday. Actually, that's not quite right, either--more accurate to say they filled us up and kept it level till the last hour or so, when Mayer went into schaffle ("shuffle," duh) mode and stopped paying attention to flow, riding out his time on the decks. He'd earned the right, though.

I left the office around 5pm, caught a 7:20pm plane to S.F., and Supershuttled it straight to the venue, arriving at 10 on the nose. Maybe a dozen people there, and as a venue it didn't look promising--a lot of couches, almost no dancefloor, an empty DJ setup (they were playing a CD). I bought a drink and was approached by a tall guy with glasses--he turned out to be Alex, an ILx regular--and his girlfriend Jen. We sat around while Broker/Dealer played some records and the room filled up, and we began to get nervous--surely the party wasn't going to be in this lounge? We wanted to dance. Then we got word that the party was moving to the previously cordoned-off basement. We headed down, and it was pretty much exactly what we wanted it to be--dark, corners lit w/red, green, blue, purple neon, bar in the middle, large, and eminently ready to be danced in. Then Mayer came on, opened with 15 minutes or so of buzzy, limpid ambience, before throwing on something lightly beaty--a 4/4 house thing with a hint of a break-y feel, appropriate, in retrospect, for S.F. He took maybe 20 minutes from there to rev up to full speed--and he did it with the A-side of his new 12-inch. (Both sides, I am happy to report, smoke.) He shifted dynamics, of course--it's his trademark--but what's great about catching him do it in real time is that he's so relaxed, so leisurely about it, he's no slowpoke but getting there when he gets there is the entire point, and he keeps you entertained while he's changing lanes so there's no impatience on the audience's part either. What's great about Immer and Fabric 13 is that those shifts come nearly every time the track number changes but never feel willful; what's great about him live is that they're harder to predict but feel exactly right when they arrive.

Voigt, in the meantime, did a PA between Mayer's two set, mostly variations on a theme, which sounds a lot more boring than it actually was--in fact, I believe I will introduce the word "bangin'" into this summary to describe it. It was bangin'. There. That will do.

In retrospect, the '89 should've been shorter; you can sense it running out of gas toward the end. But the '97 is as good as I'd hoped, partly because I had so many things that I imported at 192kbps instead of the 128kbps that much of '89 was (thanks to Mike Daddino, whose multi-CD sets of hip-hop and electronica were ransacked for my own project; similarly, I ended up using a few of his MP3s on the '80 one as well). Anyway, if you're interested in acquiring or trading for these, drop me a line.

Monday, November 24, 2003

Hi everyone.

I used to be over here, but a few months ago, Pitas conked out for four days, and when it came back it not only lost a bunch of posts I'd made, it wouldn't let me back into my blog even though I kept typing the same password in over and over again. Grrrr.

Anyway, I've been pretty busy--I have a job that keeps me pretty occupied, plus I do another blog--or should be doing; I've been very remiss as of late on it--and have an active social life. (Here is a fun game you can play: spot the lie in that last sentence. Hint: it's the one without a link.) But I do miss blogging stuff that isn't strictly concept-based, and this is going to be the place I do it from now on. I'll have links up on the side soon, and I'll import some of the more interesting listy stuff from the Pitas site at some point as well--perhaps I'll even update/modify them.

In the meantime, though, some basic stats. I'm 28 (I turn 29 in mid-February). I'm single, and I write about music for a living, though I spend more time editing these days. (The Weekly has a very large music section, for which I am grateful, since it lets me give some smart people a place to write and get paid for it.) I was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and even though I haven't lived there in nearly five years I still identify very strongly with the city--many of my friends are either living there now or used to. I've been writing about music professionally since 1997, and somewhat miraculously, making a living at it since 1999. (Not a great living, but a living.) I have very broad tastes and a large collection, most of which I am in the process of converting to MP3 and selling. (The MP3s are stored on CD-Rs.) I got an iPod recently; the piece I wrote about it, for the Weekly's gift guide, is easily, and inexplicably, the most popular thing I've written about for the paper since I came back on board in June.

Speaking of which: I first lived in Seattle in 1996; a couple of friends and I set off for San Francisco, and parted ways in Montana. I Greyhounded to Seattle with very little money; having visited once before, when I was 13, I liked the city and decided to give it a go. I lasted five months before going back to Minneapolis, where I took a job at a nightclub (whose story was told extremely well recently by the great Peter S. Scholtes) as well as an ice creamery called Sebastian Joe's. I also began writing record reviews, and later features, for City Pages, the local newsweekly, and still my favorite.

After a couple years, I got restless and decided to move back to Seattle. I did this in August 1999, and after a couple months of knocking around and living off freelance work I landed a job at Seattle Weekly, doing music listings. I also kept up a steady freelance pace I'd established in Minneapolis, and after a year and a half, moved to New York. There, I freelanced full time for a variety of places, spending about a year and a half inching toward solvency and working for under-the-table cash at an East Village record establishment called Norman's. I also made loads of lists and sharpened my writing skills; both tasks continue.

By early 2003, I was doing pretty well, when two major things happened. First, I got a book deal--my contribution to Continuum Books' 33 1/3 series, on Prince's Sign 'O' the Times, will be released in February 2004. The other thing is that I was asked to come back to Seattle Weekly, this time as music editor, and given the chance to reshape the section how I saw fit. This was--is--too good a chance to turn down, and I accepted, starting at the paper in mid-June. That brings us up to date, overview-wise.

I still freelance a little bit--Interview, Spin, Stereo-Type, Chicago Reader, Time Out New York, and Village Voice being the places I write for most frequently. I am also pretty active on the I Love Music and I Love Everything message boards. And like some of that board's regulars, I've gotten severely into making these single-year survey MP3 mix-CDs, the latest of which is below:
