Hey, gidday mates! It’s holiday season in NYC, Jenny and I have deejayed something like 12 parties over the past three weeks, and we’ve managed to get away with not playing a single Christmas song in the process. Not even one. Sorry Santa. The following are our favorite jams of the moment, some of them new, most of them old, one of them we heard on the best Instagram video ever created, feat.

I’ve spent the past five days holed up in bed with the worst flu of my life which is not nearly as much fun as it sounds. So… Here’s a playlist that adequately sums up my week.Click to Continue!
On Tuesday last week, I was invited to do something that I can quite honestly say I’ve never done before — take a tour of a piano factory. Not just any piano factory, mind you, but Steinway & Sons (which, to aficionados, is like the Rolls Royce of piano companies).Click to Continue!
