I stumbled onto the gig when two acquaintances called and said they were starting a party in a cool new club and wanted me as a resident. I was flattered but expected it to go the way of most good parties, ie a fun three weeks then abrupt bye bye, but when I walked in and saw the room I was glowing. And somehow, week after week, then year after year, it just kept going, for four years, until they got priced out of the neighborhood they helped create. oh, I wanna go visit that room again. In the early days they jacked the subs so much you could hear the front windows rattling about a half block away, but even after they were turned down it was like a subway train passing under. Rarely had to raise your voice, but giant bass, space noise, couches, live video, smarties to gawk at and/or talk to and/or not, low lighting (and a disco ball!): perfect.

for much of our life we were streamed and archived on groovetech.com, which was a sweet thing.
