Quote - Plaza De Funk "Ever since I was asked to play in San Francisco for the first time 4 years ago (where does the time fly???) I knew there was something really special about this city.
I have tried to describe it to people who have not been there to play or even just to visit, but it's impossible. It's everything that makes San Francisco a unique place: the legacy of hippy culture, the architecture, the hills, the bay, the fact that some of my favourite music comes from there (yes I am a Primus fan), but most of all the people, their generosity and hospitality, their love of good music, and their absolute dedication to making every single party a memorable occasion.
So, I've been lucky enough to play at Lovefest twice, and at Mighty 3 times (one of the venues with the best soundsystems EVER). And when my "penpal" DJ Zach Moore asked me to play at his 40th birthday celebration (through my good friend and promoter extraordinaire Andrea) - I was absolutely thrilled to come back. Once again it was a crazy, sweaty, memorable party - and to top it all off I spent a whole 10 days soaking up the California sun and enjoying the vibes - catching up with the amazing friends I have made over my numerous visits and having loads of fun!!
I hope that when you listen to this set you'll be able to feel the energy of that night…it will definitely stay in my memory for a long time! With lots of love to Zach, Andrea, Piper, all the other DJs on the night and my great pals in San Francisco (and a special mention to Nicole and Jason who always provide me with a home away from home - and to new dad Murph!).
In the words of good old Arnie…I'LL BE BACK!"
