Who I am

I've been called an Idealist. A dreamer. A crazy young fool who will end up drinking in the subways of New York. I've also been called an Indian. An Arab. A Mexican. An Italian. (Nobody who has met me for the first time has ever guessed correctly that I'm Tanzanian)

Solid. Here's what I have to say: I'm going to save the world.

Armin at Pacha last night

Last night was incredible. Absolutely insane. A few friends and I went to Pacha for Armin's set... and it was balistic! He played Yearzero, which made my night! Loved the club set up, too. Makes me want to go to Ibiza more and more.

So for everyone who knows me, I'll be DJ'ing pretty much for sure at Lehigh next Friday, and hopefully at campus pizza on Saturday! We are on.

So I'm sitting here bored, and I'm about to go to bed. But I decided to play around with screenshots.

Push the feeling on

It's amazing. I think I'm beginning to feel it all over again... I'm rediscovering why I like electronic music so much. I've been listening to tracks by Interstate, Nightcrawlers, Cass Fox, Andy Moore - the list goes on - and I feel so alive. It's crazy how far one track can take you!

So I know I've been ranting on about making my new mix, but I have to confess, New York City is one place that can steal your time. No kidding. I've been meaning to make Rhythm Electro 4 - "And Beyond" for months now. But I promise I'll get on it the next time I go back to Lafayette. Which reminds me ... I tested out my new speakers! Behringer B215's... they're insanely light and versatile. For 600 watts each, they really are teasers... I love them.

In other news, I was thinking things over today, and I figure that next year is going to either be really good year or a really bad one for the same reason; I'm going to be trying some new things out - with music, with business and with FAAP - and if they work according to plan, it's going to be bananas!

Alright, I'm sitting here with my faithful bottle of JD and I need to be getting ready. It's a night on the town tonight. The Kheraj Brothers are about to do it again ...

Until next time, bon chance.

Note to self...

... mixing (drinks) is never a good idea.

"Jihad" does not mean "holy war"!

I'm sick of seeing this all over news articles. If the media stopped being ignorant and actually took the time to look up the word "Jihad" in an Arabic dictionary, they wouldn't be putting out half the crap they do now.

No, it DOES NOT mean "holy war". Jihad is a word used to express "struggle". In the Holy Quran, it is used to express struggle in the name of Allah. And no, this does not automatically mean waging war. A muslim working in the New York Stock Exchange and simply integrating himself into American society can be seen as a Muslim with a personal Jihad. A Muslim professor in a university teaching about the modern interpretation of the Quran can also be seen as a Muslim with a personal Jihad.

So the next time you hear the word "Jihad", don't piss your pants, or breathe harder, or panic. The media doesn't know what they're talking about.

Seriously, let's get with it.

Dance for Darfur

Wow ... what a great weekend! I had a great gig at Lafayette on Saturday night for the "Dance for Darfur". They ended up raising more than $2,400! Also got a chance to catch up with some peeps... good times.

More ideas for next year's recording studio came up... I'll be updating this section and my website in the near future. Until then, stay tuned!
