I was forunte to attent FWA for the first time this year and invited to be part of a great lineup with my friends Dune and Skroy for the deaddog party on Sunday night. The recording unfortunately did not work, but I was able to recreate the set later based on some low quality videos from the set. It was a little crazy, but fun! I hope you enjoy listening!
Listen to all past tracks...
I was invited to help close out MFF this year by kicking off the Deaddog party on Sunday night. Unfortunately my good friend DJ Spots who was to follow me ended up having equipment issues and only one of his decks was working reliably, so we ended up doing an impromptu tag team set with his one good deck. Much shennanigans followed... Thanks to Oddy for providing the live room mixed down audio. The video is more fun to watch on the tag team IMO :) Enjoy!
First time for everything! While "EarVevlet" was not DJing at BLFC this year, I was invited to be the "Liquid" DJ for the BLFCorp themed opening set Saturday Night entitled "Echoes of the BLFCorp". To truly give my all to the theme I performed the entire set as Hilyte the Liquid Saber DJ, a fully UV reactive bright neon saber toothed tiger. The theme was top 40 remixes from the 80s through today. I wouldn't have made it but for the wonderful blower fans next to me stage, Whew!!
EarVelvet Live from VancouFur 2016 at the Executive Airport Plaza Hotel in Vancouver, BC, Saturday night! Following up on a great house DJ, I had the opportunity to turn things up for a friend who was headline DJ for the weekend.
EarVelvet Live from FC 2016 at the San Jose Convenciton Center, Saturday night! Had a great opportunity to kick off Saturday night so I mixed it up a bit until everyone settled in and the things got to jumpin! The setup for this gig was amazing! Hands down the best audio I've ever had for a show!
EarVelvet Live from RF 2015 at the Seattle Airport Hilton, Saturday night! I had the unexpected opportunity for a short set of some new music to fill in for a good friend who was forced to cancel last minute due to work.
Together again the dynamic duo of EarVelvet and DJ Akonite bring the Ham Sammich live to the stage for RF2015 in Seattle! It was uncertain this was happening until a couple hours before, so watch and enjoy the hilarity of unprepared chaos and new music!
Earvelvet live from the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino for BLFC 2015! A high energy set of club and electro house for an amazing audience that went all night! The live audio was a bit overdriven (on Video) so I my best at a higher quality reproduction for the mp3 download/mixcloud below. Enjoy!
Earvelvet live from Sharton Novi in Detriot Michicgan for MCFC 2015! By some miracle I didn't mess up the recordings this time. It was a small audience late night show so I took some liberties with tunes that I enjoyed and may have thrown in some Drum & Bass for my own entertainment. I had a lot of fun doing this one, how you enjoy it also!
Earvelvet live from The Intercontinental in Dallas Texas for Friday night of TFF 2015! I did of course screw up the audio recording but was able to piece it back together thanks to Oddy, so here below are the live audio and video from that performance. Enjoy!
Live from the San Jose convention center on Friday night of FC2015. I once again screwed up the recordings, so if you want to hear the live show, it is in the video. By request, I have done my best to faithfully recreate the live set as a clean audio recording based off what was on the audio track of the video that was captured. Enjoy!
Better late than never, here is the board recording and video (until YouTube pulls it) of a live tag-team set between myself (EarVelvet) and ValleyRux. This was Valley's first time doing a live tag-team with another DJ and I'd say he nailed it. Give it a listen and see what you think!
Two live recordings from BLFC 2014 at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, NV. The first is an Impromptu Happy Hardcore set I did Friday night/Saturday morning at 2am. The second is a live set from 10pm Saturday night featuring 45 minutes from me (EarVelvet) followed by 30 minutes of Tag Team (HAM SAMMICH) with my buddy Akonite, and finished out with 45 minutes from Akonite. The videos below are a mix of the board recording and natural audio, the audio files are just the board recording.
This is a remake of the live performance from the San Jose Convention Center on Friday night 1/17/2014. I had enough comments from those wanting a clean version for download. The board recording had a problem and only got one channel clean but you can hear it on the video. The downloadable remake is as faithfully as I could reproduce the live set, in stereo, without the board mic for easier listening :)
This is a remake of the live performance from the grand ballroom of the Hyatt Regency O'Hare on Saturday night 11/23/2013.

And there you have it for Q2 of 2012, Enjoy!
Live recording from the Fur The Record Catatonic 2 part 7/20/2012 held at Waids in Seattle. Waid is one of the coolest club owners you'll meet, go there and meet him sometime! Recording is local on my source, so you only get the output from me, not the other DJ's before and after me. Enjoy!
