First of all, the results are in for the URB 2009 Readers Poll and I wanted to send a big thank you to everyone who voted! My mix CD Infinity +1 won Compilation Of The Year, and I’m runner-up for Electronic Artist Of The Year.
And second, a big smooch to everyone who attended Hard New Year’s Eve in LA. A celebration! Shout out to the Hard crew, Mehdi & Alex & fam, as well as EIKNARF, Asian Dan and Media Contender. Here’s a little recap vid from the night:
I’ll be ringing in the new year (I never really understood this expression) in LA this week, and frankly you can’t really beat this line-up. Sometimes I dread NYE because I feel like too much to juggle, too many people to please, but not this year! I’m gonna be DJing my arse off with a big smile on my face. If you’re in the LA area I hope to see you there. I think there’s just a few tickets left, they’re going fast. Grab them over at Hard’s website.
10pm: DJ Mehdi
Midnight: A-Trak (new decade, hooooooo)
2am: Boys Noize
The only way you can be excused from coming to this show if you’re in town is if you’re checking out Chromeo at Club Nokia. Either way, Los Angeles, spend NYE with a Macklovitch. If you don’t you’re a bum.

Time for the final recap of the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour; the second serving, if you will. For those just catching on this lasted all throughout July, traveling across North America on a tour bus with Treasure Fingers and Theophilus London. We did an extensive run across enormous Canada. Normally I have a rule: no more than 4 shows in a row. I’m not sure how but that rule got broken, or bent, and we did a 5 city blitz. The day before that started I was in Vancouver and decided to get a massage at my hotel to try and ease the tour wear-and-tear. Then we went to our first Canadian show in Victoria, which involved putting the bus on a ferry. There’s something pretty phenomenal about putting an entire bus on a boat. But hey, Archimedes wasn’t kidding, buoyancy is very real. We also saw some porpoises in the water as we were leaving the docks. How do you recognize a porpoise? By its fin! In Victoria, about an hour or two before my set my neck started stiffening up. It got bad really fast and I had to play my set whilst in pain. Damn massage! On the lighter side, a girl asked me if I was Amish.
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday I did 5 shows in 3 cities. You know what that means? A new blog for you, that’s what. I’m gonna throw Thursday in the mix too because I did some pretty neat stuff. So strap on your blog seatbelt and get ready for the ride.
Thursday I was invited to the Nike ID studio in NY to design some custom kicks and they filmed the whole thing with some interviews to tie it back into the Running Man campaign. Since I don’t know how to design I brought along Dust La Rock and Kesh for some help. When we arrived they had a whole team waiting for us. Nike staff supervising, interviewers, camera crew, people to help us design, etc. I felt pampered.
