Holla if ya hear me!

Dear funkateers,
Things are good, DJing a bit and working more equals a happy "rich" Devil! I have practicing a bunch now that I've got some sweet speakers and Serato 2.0 was just released. FX are dope and I can upload the playlist as I'm playing, feel free to check out my profile on the Serato website here. Lots of other cool stuff as well and I've started messing with midi controllers and thinking about buying one of those Korg Nano controllers(with all the faders and knobs). Any suggestions about a good pair of DJ headphones?

Some exciting stuff coming up! Check it:

FRC the Ocho (aka Feather River Campout 8), June 11-13, 2010
A Friends and Family Campout under the stars
on the banks of Bucks Lake

The Feather River Campout is moving to a new space this year. While it is still in the Plumas National Forest near Quincy, it's actually not, technically speaking, on the Feather River. It is, however, still technically a campout and we think you're going to love the new location.

Yes, we know it's a four-hour drive from the Bay Area, but can we tempt you with our beautiful campground next a gorgeous alpine lake? How about our sweet sound by P4 pumping out tunes from some of your favorite FnF DJs (and some new blood too)?

What if we told you that everyone's favorite DJ mobsters, the Ambient Mafia, will be your Friday night sound conductors, providing relaxing downtempo and ambient sounds to greet you when you arrive? Still not convinced? OK, don't tell the boss we're doing this, but we'll even throw in the friendly supportive community, cool hosts and several other amazing surprises for no extra charge!

Damn, you drive a hard bargain, but we're sure you're going to really enjoy this top-of-the-line campout experience.

Please come prepared! Treats to share, costumes and finery combined with common-sense attention to the camping environment, a pack-it-in-pack-it-out ethos, and your smiling face are all you need for a great time in the woods! There are campfire pits and onsite grills, so bring fuel and yummy stuff to grill. No food will be provided at this event, so BYOF.
Confirmed DJs include
George Cochrane
DJ Fllow
Pauly Vinyl
Larry Ching
DJ Salex
DJ Innaseoul
Whiskey Devil
and more TBA...
