Hard to believe, but its been six years since we opened our little independent online store. This year we’ve decided to celebrate by offering our customers a new and improved responsive design that should be a bit more pleasing to the eyes. Compared to the old version, which looked like it was created in the mid-90s. Visit http://www.bedoshirts.com to see what I’m talking about.
I am happy to announce the return of STEP. A new podcast series based on Detroit’s first weekly Drum & Bass and Jungle night of the same name. Once again, I start off the first episode to get the ball rolling, and we have a nice lineup of special guests on the way. CLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE TO STEP ON ITUNES RIGHT NOW FOR FREE!
Something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time is start a podcast or two, but I kept procrastinating because I didn’t feel like the had the knowledge and equipment necessary to create a solid product.
So, I decided to stop making excuses and just start doing it. I’m allowing myself to make mistakes and learn from them. And, I am learning a lot already. We launched the first episode last week featuring myself, and I’m about to upload the next one later today featuring a live DJ set by Keith Kemp. We plan to release a new episode every week, although I’m not sure that we really need to follow a strict schedule. Give it a listen and let me know what you think…
If you are around an internet connection this evening at 9:00-10:00 PM (Eastern), Steve Ra will be debuting an all vinyl DJ mix I recorded specifically for his show, The Detroit Sessions.
The mix is very personal for me as it begins with some of the first records I ever purchased then takes you on a journey of music made by friends, and peers I have met along the 20 years I have been spinning vinyl, then returns full circle to the beginning.
It was a difficult mix for me to finish because I never program my sets, they’re always improvised. With this, I had a specific amount of songs to squeeze in about and hour’s worth of time.
If anyone is interested in the story behind the selection…ask away. This is a mix of Detroit House music, and I’d like to take this concept further and record a Detroit techno, and a Detroit Electro version as well.
