Dear recent Orlando transplant:

Ok, so you just moved to Orlando from New York / Philly / Chicago / San Francisco / et al. You feel lost, uprooted, misplaced -- you're starting to think Orlando might suck. Eager to find some nightlife in this town, you go to Lattitudes on Church Street, Slingapour's on Wall Street and that mega-club on Orange Avenue owned by one of those Backstreet Boys (Orlando's finest celebrities). Maybe you even think International Drive, Citywalk or Downtown Disney is where everyone hangs out in this town. Now you really think Orlando sucks.

Well, you're wrong. There is more to this city than theme park "nightlife" and crappy clubs with guys wearing shiny shirts, but you have to know where to look. Instead of complaining about how lame Orlando is compared to your city of origin, why not get out there and support your new scene -- it's a lot better than you think! After all, you moved here for a reason, right? (I'm guessing to escape the cold weather.) So you can do one of two things: either 1) move back to the city you think is sooooo much more awesome or 2) quit bitchin', check the events below and DON'T SLEEP on the shit that is happening!

This Saturday: Nate Day invades Orlando

This Saturday night at Sky60, I am super excited to get to play with Nate Day, a super awesome DJ coming out of LA right now.

The first time I heard about him was through the blog Cause=Time where I first downloaded his mix Space People Space Disco. Like the blog author, I was intrigued by the tracklist: it was only 30 minutes long, yet managed to pack in 18 songs. Pretty impressive. Here is the tracklisting, and if you haven't done so by now, go download it!!!

Space People Space Disco
1. Intro- Nate Day and Jimi Hendrix
2. Loverboy - Kid Alex
3. Get Low/Club Action - Herve and Yo Majesty (Scattermish Timid Edit)
4. Yo - Bassnector (Speaker Junk Remix)
5. Golden Skans To Interzone - The Klaxons (So Me Remix)
6. Rapture - My Robot Friend (Hellraiser Freeleance Remix)
7. Turtle Trouble - Para One
8. Take Me Back To Your House - Basement Jaxx (Speaker Junk Remix)
9. Destination Overdrive (DFA Remix) - Chromeo
10.Dance Music ( Toxic Avenger Mix) - Sexual Earthquake In Kobe
11.Ross Ross Ross - Sebastian
12.Bird Flu Guns Up Bazuka- M.I.A
13.Rainbow Man (K. Christmon Mix) - Busy P
14.Death From Above (SMD Remix) - CSS
15.Tambozuda (New Rave World Mix) - Sinden and Count of Monte Cristal
16.Don't Be Shy (Speaker Junk Remix) - Spektrum
17.Trina Kills - Mr. Oizo
18. Dj's Don't Dance - Matthew Savant

So you can imagine how stoked I was when my dropped his new mix on us, right before the WMC. Entitled Everywhere in LA is 30 Minutes (which reminds me of the movie Clueless), it's another 30-minute mix full of awesomeness. Again, you need to download that shit right now!!!
