To promote the release of Defected Clubland Adventures Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, Defected Records founder and DJ, Simon Dunmore, takes you through a video montage mixing 10-years of Defected releases and stories.
There's nothing like being friends with the DJ, lol. I shot this video from the booth at Aero (off 23rd and Collins) on Saturday night, March 28, sometime around 3 AM. The club was jumping as AVH kicked his classic hits, including My, My, My, Witch Doktor, Full Moon and more. The crowd was having such a good time, this dude started throwing money around...literally! He threw a stack of dollar bills up in the air. Too bad it wasn't C-notes. I guess it's the economy and he must have been holding back.
The Blogging, Podcasting and RSS panel at WMC 2009 focused on the various ways to get out the message through blogging, podcasting and RSS. Although BPM.FM and Play.FM are more streaming services than podcast outlests, the point was that Dance music radio has moved online and is where many people are accessing their favorite mix shows and artists.

Here's a short clip of New York's Dance music leader, Pulse 87.7 Program Director, Joel Salkowitz, discussing how the station came about, his role in it, and the recent action by Arbitron to add stations in the 87.7 range to their regular books. Other panelists included Vic Latino from Long Island, New York pop station, Party 105.5; Mike Spinella, Director of Industry Relations at AOL Music; and Skyy from Sirus Satellite Radio.
In these troubled economic times, it’s a great opportunity to save some money and be green at the same time. Instead of driving to the airport, I figured taking the Westchester Bee Line bus service to the Westchester airport would serve to accomplish both.
The bus stop is actually just across the street from my apartment, so convenience played a big part in my decision making process.
Taking the bus also gave me the opportunity to upgrade my WordPress iPhone application, which is how I posted this blog entry.
It’s amazing to be able to publish on the fly. I can’t wait til the iPhone gets video, which will make it possible to do more with video updates while mobile. I’ve become my own media center of sorts. An amazing thing when it used to be you had to have a camera crew and broadcast signal to do what you can do today for a fraction of the cost.
This week I am finishing up a final paper for my last credit at NYU. I decided to write about how WordPress has changed the game in Web publishing and the impact i have felt since migrating Netmix onto the platform.
