Hey y’all. It’s been a while with lots has happening this year, hence the lack of updates.

Happy New Year, everyone! Ecstatic to announce the first mix of 2014 which was a guest mix for the show Earthly Matters on Glasgow’s freeform Subcity Radio. It aired Monday, January 27, 2014. You can stream it here including Gareth’s awesome selections before and after my mix, with his introduction starting at the 24 minute mark.  Being asked to make a mix of music that I wouldn’t normally DJ out and from the recesses of my collection, it’s another broad mix but unlike any other. Starting off with “Concentration” by then-12 year old wunderkind Chandra followed by Rogelio Ramos’ Agressiva demo of “Lovepig,” it leads you into a world where there are several themes going, if you’re paying close enough attention to notice. A Flaming Tunes favorite and Maria Chavez‘s remarkable “Medici” from her Topography of Sound series brings the cessation of the nearly 90 minute mix.  

The name Querencia came after many chats with my cousin while recovering from surgery,  whom I have now dubbed my “cosmic cousin.” It correlates with what is going on in my life and coincidentally this mix. 

“Sybil has been running the blog Farced since 2006. Regularly updated with glimpses into her life living in New York as well as other ephemera, it is her excellent skill as a curator and the frequent mixes that she posts on the blog that noticeably attract attention.

Although her selections tend to explore the sounds of minimal synth, post-punk, industrial, noise and experimental music it certainly isn’t the only reflection of her tastes. She will be reaching into the deepest recesses of her record collection for the mix that she has kindly put together for Earthly Matters, entitled “Querencia”.

For any of you who may be unfamiliar with her, she has hosted Veronica Vasicka’s Minimal Wave show on East Village Radio on a number of occasions and was also commonly seen playing at the excellent Wierd Records club night which sadly finished at the end of February, 2013.”

For those of you still reading after these SEVEN years, despite massive lack of updates:

I finally made business cards DIY style, after three years on my to do list! Maybe a minimal site revamp is in order:

Found a recording of a DJ Set from a King Dude show at WIERD in April 2012, which made me miss the glory that was making people dance in the fog til 3:30am. An amazing feat in itself when you have Nikki Sneakers providing refilled pint sized glasses of margaritas or whatever it was. I miss WIERD.

Soon I’ll finally make a list of all Wierd & Minimal Wave (EVR) shows I’ve DJed. This year marks 10 years since my friend suggested I become a DJ because I had “good taste.” We played bi-weekly at The Hole (next to Mars Bar, if you lived in NYC 10 years ago, you know). I feel it’s only right to try to start cataloguing as much as I can about what I’ve done the past 10 years. Thankfully Farced has serendipitously provided plenty of material on here for the 3 years I quit DJing (2007-2010).  I’ll always be mixin’  selectin’.
