Mon, 18 Dec 2017 02:05:20 +0000

Dave's Lounge #285: The Fusion Exchange Set

Sat, 24 May 2014 15:56:24 +0000

Last January, I was a guest DJ at the Denver Fusion Exchange. Lots of dancers complimented me on my music selection, even though the energy in the room dissipated after 1:00 AM when the organizers announced late-night food was being served. That same weekend, Bay Area DJ A'lan Abruzzo, a/k/a djTRTL, raised the bar for fusion dance sets with his "Heart Set", which quickly became one of the most memorable hours of the weekend. He released the audio from that set on SoundClound last week. You can listen here:


With that in mind, this week I wanted to share the set I played a year earlier at the Las Vegas Fusion Exchange. It took me a while to understand how the music I played on Dave's Lounge could be considered "dance music", but in the end, it all depends on how you want to dance... 


Playlist for Dave's Lounge #285:


1.) Anthony Valadez (, "Asleep (feat. Anna Wise)"



2.) Andreya Triana (, "Lost Where I Belong"



3.) Karmacoda ( , "Epic"



4.) Natalie Walker (, "Crush"



5.) Echocell (, "Soul Hangover"



6.) Deeper Sublime, "Hold My Hand"



7.) The Human Experience, "Dusted Compass (ft. Lila Rose)"



8.) Lovers and Poets ( , "Only Bitterness Remains"



9.) san.drine ( , "Not Around"



10.) Anji Bee ( , "Love Me Leave Me"

Dave's Lounge #3

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 15:13:54 +0000

Some things to know about this week's show:

I signed up for Amazon Associates earlier this week. That means that if an artist featured on this show has a CD on Amazon, I will put a link to that CD in the show notes, and if you click on that link and buy the CD, you will not only support a great artist or band, but you will also help me pay for the web hosting for this show. (It's Liberated Syndication, so it won't take that many CDs, I promise...)

I'm considering doing the same thing for iTunes, but I'm not so sure I want to promote DRM-wrapped music, even if it does support the artists. What do you guys think?

(image) This week's featured artist is Bird York, one of the few singer-actresses I've heard who can really sing. Her song "In the Deep" is the featured song in the new movie Crash, starring Don Cheadle and Sandra Bullock. It's also on her excellent CD, The Velvet Hour.

Click here to purchase The Velvet Hour from

This week's playlist:

  1. Bird York, "Wicked Little High"
  2. Planet Bliss, "Argon Light"
  3. Aisth, "Holy Palmers"

I'm cutting back to 3 songs for now to avoid running out of stuff to play in a few weeks. If I can get you listeners out there to send me some more good stuff, though, I'll start playing more songs per podcast.

Enjoy the show!

Dave’s Lounge #215

Wed, 27 Jul 2011 04:12:00 +0000

This week, I mentioned a TED Talk by Kevin Slavin about the computer algorithms that shape our world. You can watch that talk here:

It’s a fascinating (and slightly disturbing) look at how we’ve built machines that we don’t fully control, and how they’re reshaping our world in ways we don’t expect. In many respects, music algorithms control our listening habits. But it doesn’t always have to be that way…

Dave’s Lounge #208: Songs From the Early Shows

Wed, 20 Apr 2011 05:31:00 +0000

When I started this podcast six years ago, my goal was pretty simple — to provide a platform for a style of music that I really liked that wasn’t getting much attention elsewhere. As I’ve said here before, the enemy of an artist isn’t piracy, but obscurity. After all, no one will ever like your music if no one actually hears your music. This was music I wanted people to hear. If you just started listening in the last few months, you might not have heard most of these songs before. But you should…

Playlist for Dave’s Lounge #208:

1.) Beauty’s Confusion, "Whirlwind"

As we get closer to the Lounge’s 6th anniversary, let’s dig into the catalog of a label that’s been really good to me over the years. I play a lot of tunes from Sine Music on this show because they release a lot of great stuff — and they keep sending it to me, something I tend to like in an indie label.

Dave’s Lounge #202

Wed, 26 Jan 2011 06:02:00 +0000

I tend not to talk about sports on this show, but big things happened to two of my teams in the last week. The Pittsburgh Steelers made it to the Super Bowl for the 2nd time in 3 years, while the Carolina Railhawks, the soccer team I’ve supported here for the last 4 years or so, suddenly doesn’t exist anymore. There’s a strange yin-and-yang feeling to these things happening in the same week. They’re both a reminder, too, that we all have only so many seasons, so we should enjoy them while they’re here. I hope you enjoy the music this week, too.

Playlist for Dave’s Lounge #202:

1.) Tuesday Boulevard, "One of These Days"  

2.) Kalpataru Tree, "Elliptical Sequence"

Another winter solstice, another trip around the sun, another year full of great music. It’s been an interesting ride, this year we call 2010, and I’m glad you stopped by the lounge to join me for it.

Download audio file (DavesLounge-20090112.mp3) So I was all set to introduce some new features to this web site with this particular episode, but a funny thing happened along the way - I actually spent much of my vacation time doing... nothing.
