“Success” is an example of indie electronic at its best, a trip backwards on an aural time machine. There’s plenty of synth wizardry to keep the tech-heads happy (The Model runs their live drum machines through a VHS machine for a vintage sound). Justin Paul’s production skills make the Remodel Mix feel urgent, upfront, undeniable. File under Indie Dance, Indie Rock & New Wave.

“Justin Paul from Underground Sol and out of Los Angeles doing an amazing rework of Hearts of ACE’s “How Long”. It killed when I played in San Francisco last weekend. Hear at around the 35min mark.” – Ricardo Torres NDYD Radio

Who loves taking pictures? In addition to creating music, producing, and performing as a DJ, photography is also a passion of mine. I’ve been testing out my new Canon 650D/T4i camera around Los Angeles this week. Both of theses photos were captured from the top of Mannix Drive in Laurel Canyon. I used a 75-300mm lens to capture this close up shot of downtown Los Angeles.
Here is a wide view of downtown Los Angeles from Laurel Canyon. The house on the left has an insane view of LA. Californication used this house on several episodes.Both images were processed with the KitCam App on my iPhone.

L.A. friends and family, I’m DJing / performing at the LOVE STREET FESTIVAL on New Years Day (January 1st) at 6pm. It does feel kinda surreal that I get to create art and music in Laurel Canyon where many music legends lived or often visited (Beatles, Doors, Led Zeppelin, Zappa and more).
I grew up enjoying and studying several of these acts, and collected most of their records. Jim Morrison kinda predicted the future of music (video link). He does a pretty good job of explaining how DJs and electronic musicians perform (minus the tape part since we have gone digital). I’m looking forward to sharing some music with you as we set the tone for 2013
