|Description: “2 am Underground” – There is a certain something to being in a dance club at 2 am in the morning. The best music plays. The craziest times happen. And there’s just some extra “stupid” in there air that makes it all that and a bag chips. This episode is dedicated to that moment and that feeling, which DJ digitalflood manages to somehow bottle, encode into an mp3, and upload to df.com for your listening pleasure. The result is pure underground dance club bliss. Total run time is just over an hour. The mix is laden with hip hop, trance, industrial, dance pop, and some surprises as wekk. All in DJ digitalflood’s pure “Cut Like Crack” mixing style. So turn down the lights. Break out some bubbly. Put on “Get Out” on HDNET with the sound down. Turn up your speakers and prepare to make your neighbors call into the police a noise violation complaint. It simply doesn’t get much better than this.|
You may have noticed that “digitalflood Pirate Radio Volume 6 Episode 5” isn’t out yet. That’s because this week has been the absolute week from Hell at work. I’ve come home every night completely tired and there is no way I was digging into mixing it. So, I’m taking this week off. I’ll be back next week with this episode and from there get things back on track, but for this week– yeah I need some quite time to relax. I’m sure you understand. The next episode will be out on 2/9/10.

|Description: “Heartbreaking & Baby Making” – This episode may have arrived a few days late, but the theme is a few weeks early so it all balances out in the end (at least that’s what we tell ourselves so we can sleep better at night). Yes, it’s that time of the year again where we queue up some slow tunes about all things love from heartbreak to getting it on– we’ve got you covered in this Valentine’s Day mix that sure to set the mood. So dim the lights, pour some bubbly, and cuddle up close to your significant other (or pillow– if that’s how you roll). DJ digitalflood will be your tour guide as he takes you on a trip through his favorite acoustic love songs, R&B smooth grooves, crooner romance standards, power ballads, and smooth soul. There’s even a Rick Roll in the end that will warm your heart and get your libido going because God knows nothing turns on a woman like Rick Astley. At just over an hour this non-stop mix session is full of surprises. So if you’re ready for the soundtrack of love then click on the link and let the magic happen!|
Yesterday evening into early this morning MC Mary @ The Disco! and I recorded digitalflood Pirate Radio Volume 5 Episode 6 (The Christmas Episode). Production will start on Sunday night and I expect to have it out for this Monday (12/28) evening. The show is pretty much out of control and I think you’ll find it as amusing to listen to as we did while recording it. The music selection is top notch and in the vein of the Holiday Spirit. I think you’ll enjoy the final product. It looks like this show will be the last episode of the year.
I do have good news though– Volume 6 Episode 1 is already in the planning stages for a 1/4/10 release. This will be our annual Top Ten Worst Songs of the Year show. And if that wasn’t enough– Volume 6 Episode 2, which will come out on 1/12/10 and will feature none other than DJ A.D.D. who has promised to bring with him some of the rarest tunes he can dig up. So 2010 is shaping up to be another stellar year of Pirate Radio already.
I had a wonderful time with my family today. We did our annual Christmas Dinner. A good time was had by all.
Tomorrow evening of course is “digitalflood Party 2009: Holiday Shenanigans”. You can check out the invite here. We hope to see you there.
Expect the latest episode of digitalflood Pirate Radio (Volume 5 Episode 5) to show up on the df.com tomorrow (12/21/09) by 9 pm EST (if not sooner). Production is moving right along. I recorded the mix session late on Friday into very early Saturday morning. Got about 25% into post-production yesterday and should be able to wrap up the last 75% tonight. The show is a Cut Like Crack mix session and one that will recall a kinder gentler era in my DJ career. It sounds super duper like a new fangled pooper scooper. Word.
The Pirate Radio Christmas episode is right on target as well for release and will be out on 12/27/09. Production will start most likely this Sunday night or possibly Monday night.
I’m still working out details, but the last episode of the Volume 5 season should be the following show, which will be our annual Top Ten Worst Songs of the Year show. Probably showing up on 12/31/09 on df.com.
Get well wishes go out to my on hiatus co-host MC Mary @ The Disco! who hurt her shoulder doing martial arts yesterday. No, I’m not making this up. She too hurt her right shoulder like me. Her injury isn’t as bad, but still hurts like a mofo. My underlying suspicions though say she did it to try to be as cool as me. This of course concerns me because no doubt 2010 will be the year where ripping your arm out of the socket is cool.
I of course set the trend this year by contracting Lyme’s Disease over the summer. Literally over ten people I know over the course of three months have been diagnosed with it as well. An even scarier thousands of people world wide came down with it as well! This certainly is no coincidence. I know you people love me, but come on– there’s no reason to risk life and limb to be like me! Simply growing a beard with a the Ben Franklin hair cut will do. 😀
