Sooo good. RIYL: Bragg, Costello, Clash, The xx (it’ll make sense once you hear it). I’ll definitely be copping it on vinyl when it comes out next week.

Running a business is often terribly tedious and mind-numbing (never-ending email, scheduling, details, etc.) I need to get crafty/creative every so often to prevent crankiness and/or insanity.
Makeshop Miami's “Open Make Night” is at Sweat tonight and I am SO there. I dabble with a variety of crafts but will probably bring some embroidery projects I've been meaning to finish tonight.
Below is a snap of my embossing/papercraft storage unit. Yes, I am that much of a hyper-organized nerd.

Been DJing up a storm lately… Doing a private gig tonight in Wynwood, and I’m now on every week at Whiskey Wednesdays at the Rose Bar in the Delano Hotel. It’s from 9pm to midnight and I spin early rock ‘n’ roll, original soul, crooners, jazz, funk, swing, etc… and then all the modern artists rocking those styles. It’s downright swellegant.
Whiskey Wednesday is their “speakeasy” night so you gotta RSVP (or hit me up at the DJ booth) for the password. I’m also spinning July 6th at the brand new lounge Mr. Wolf at the Townhouse hotel. More info on that soon…

Here it is! Volume II of DJ Hottpants and I’s homage to Roll Out, the roller skating party we threw at Gold Coast Roller Rink (RIP) back in 2006-2008.
This mix is full of guilty pleasures, indie hits, freestyle, hip hop, classic disco, and much more. It ends with Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”, a song that wasn’t around back then, but would’ve been a surefire skate jam if it were…
Enjoy and please follow me on Spotify for more goodness.

Don’t remember where I got this image from but I live on the top floor of my building and it drives me crazy when people take the elevator to the second floor (provided they aren’t old or carrying an armload of groceries or something).
