Really honored to announce I’ll be back on the cut with KCRW’s Marion Hodges this Friday (05.08.15) at General Lee’s in Chinatown. On the setlist: Hip-Hop, Soul, Rare Grooves, Disco, Indie Dance, Nu-Soul and Nu-Disco. Come join us! We’ll provide the sounds to make you get down!
It’s been a while since I’ve worked with Film Independent and was ecstatic when I was approached for this event. This was a great start to an upcoming number of private events to follow.
If you’re not familiar with this non-profit organization, I highly recommend reading the info below and supporting this worthwhile cause. Here’s a brief summary from their site:
At Film Independent our mission is to champion the cause of independent film and support a community of artists who embody diversity, innovation and uniqueness of vision.
Who We Are
Film Independent helps filmmakers make their movies, builds an audience for their projects and works to diversify the film industry. Film Independent’s Board of Directors, filmmakers, staff, and constituents, is comprised of an inclusive community of individuals across ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race and sexual orientation. Anyone passionate about film can become a member, whether you are a filmmaker, industry professional or a film lover.
What We Do

Film Independent also produces the Los Angeles Film Festival, showcasing the best of American and international cinema and the Film Independent at LACMA Film Series, a year-round, weekly program that offers unique cinematic experiences for the Los Angeles creative community and the general public.
With over 250 annual screenings and events, Film Independent provides access to a network of like-minded artists who are driving creativity in the film industry. Film Independent’s Artist Development program offers free Labs for selected writers, directors, producers and documentary filmmakers and presents year-round networking opportunities. Project Involve is Film Independent’s signature program dedicated to fostering the careers of talented filmmakers from communities traditionally underrepresented in the film industry.
A really fun event with Focus Features and ABC Family. During the event, I gave lead actress Stefanie Scott an impromptu lesson on how to DJ. Footage from the event is set to air on TV and online soon!
My 4th year spinning for Focus Features Pre-Oscar Toast. At the event
were the cast of Stephen Hawking’s biopic “The Theory of Everything.”
For the second year in a row, Focus Features took the best best actor category!
Congrats to Eddie Redmayne for the win.
Always an unforgettable time with the ABL Fam! We made our way back again to St Louis at Neo on Locust.
Thanks to everyone who participated in Digi-Graff! Check out the pics on my site or via Flickr .
A surreal moment to sound check at The Last Bookstore, formerly known as The Spring Arts Gallery. It was only five years ago, Digi-Graff made its debut in this space to a huge Art Walk audience. Funny how things come full-circle.
I had the privilege of going back on the road with the Art Beats + Lyrics fam for part their 2014 tour. It was a beautiful sight to see Birmingham in the Fall season, especially as a first time visitor…
Thanks to all who attended Art Beats and Lyrics in Birmingham and to all those who participated in Digi-Graff! Check out the pics on my site or via Flickr .
My third year on the cut at the Film Independent Forum. Once again, it was held at the stunning DGA National Headquarters in Hollywood. Always an honor to share music with an open minded and creative audience.
Another great time spinning for Focus Features! Excited to see this movie as I’m hearing some Oscar buzz about the film. Till next time Focus/Daminger team!
Join us on Friday, August 29th as we say farewell to The Blu Monkey. It’s been an honor to be part of the heavyweight events that took place in this venue.
