Fall/Winter 2010 Projects




2010 marks the second year that I will be working with Vernon Reid on his ongoing Artificial Afrika project. Once again, I will be editing film, doing sound design and Vernon and I plan on collaborating on making some tracks. For the live performance this year I will be playing live drums instead of just being a DJ. Vernon and I also have another project planned for Halloween, but I can't talk about that one yet.



This season I will also be working on a project with Angela Workman. Angela is a talented singer that sang back up behind the legendary late great Ray Charles as well as working with such artists as Ben E. King, B.B. King, Eminem; Prince; George Clinton; Stevie Wonder; Kelly Clarkson; and Patti LaBelle. I will be playing drums on Angela's new solo project and collaborating on tracks.




Later in the fall, I will be playing live drums with the experimental group fronted by Leon Gruenbaum called Genes and Machines. The group combines ambient, rock and funk music for an experimental mesh. I will be playing along with another drummer at the same time during the performance and Leon Gruenbaum will be playing an instrument he invented called the Samchillian.




Throughout the season I will be recording and playing drums with Apollo Heights. The band is in the process of setting up a winter tour and releasing a new EP.



Amidst all of the above action, I will be attempting to finish a solo Leon Lamont EP slated for release next Spring. More projects are pending.

DJ freeware always raises the question, "What's the catch?"  Usually the catch is that you have to buy some expensive piece of gear to even use the freeware in a gig setting.  Serato DJ Lite fixes that problem by having what they are calling "practice mode". Practice Mode has a cross fader and allows you to bypass needing a breakout box (like you use for the regular version of Serato) to have clean audio out. 

Serato moved some things around a bit and made the user interface a little bit cleaner and user friendly, but the only real improvement from Serato DJ Intro to Serato DJ Lite is the Practice Mode.  I think this program is great for people that are just beginning to learn to DJ, Mobile DJs and for doing small, unique venues where you don't feel like lugging around a bunch of bells and whistles.  With t…
