Its been a super long time since I've posted. Thanks to Mr. Christian Rokk for keeping the blog alive. I'm trying to get better about using other social media, posting things on my blogs etc. You know general post FacePlace domination internet life. Music in madison has been great. Still plenty of touring acts coming through, enough hands in the air music to keep the kids happy and a revival of a really strong house scene in the city. With events like: Tea Time, a midnight to 5am party at a tea house; Tipsy, a weekly tuesday party at jolly bobs; and Micro, a monthly event featuring adult electronic at the inferno. Its also nice to see a new solid venue in town, The Bayou restaurant aka Voodoo Night Club. With a great lighting system, a brand new to them Bag End sound system and much cheaper drinks than competing bars in the area they really stand out.
I've got a ton of shows coming up I should talk about and I will soon, but for now I leave you with a flyer for a show that I like. I don't often like my graphic design but this one I feel.

Well folks, the Packers did not win last night. I heard a rumor that Aaron Rogers was listening to Moomba+ radio before the game in his locker room. Can I say I distracted him? I won't go that far but we did play some pretty big tunes. I will have to feature those in another article though because today is the chill zone. Before we share some tracks, make plans to attend the Red Party at OB's Brau Haus in Appleton February 15th! It features Wyatt Agard and Christian Rokk and I heard a certain famous quarterback might stop by.....(not really).
Let's start with Cabo Blanco. Henry Cardenas is a well rounded producer/DJ who has garnered attention for infusing soul, hip hop and far out sounds into his modern beatwork. Supported by major moombahton DJ's like the Rot10 Musik crew as well as by new trap stand outs the #Tomcrew. Basically, he's a DJ's producer. I will put three of his songs here. All different. Major changes throughout. Chill. Listenable. Awesome.
An article by a local blog about chill electronic music would not be complete without mentioning Milwaukee's Kayjay and his recent accomplishments. Mixmag and Legitmix teamed up with heavyweight producers, Sabo and Heartbreak, to host a contest to see who could make the best moombahsoul tracks and then to compile and sell them legally with Legitmix's help. Great deal for anyone and huge exposure. So I am happy to type that Kayjay's remix of Camron's "Oh Boy" was chosen. Big ups homey. You are making moves and keeping it chill.
I'm going to be honest and say that these tracks are a little more uptempo than I intended. But, I just saw that Amtrac's massive house track, "Those Days", has been remixed! So, if you've heard me spin house (Christian Rokk spins house btw), you've heard the original. Go get them all because I guarantee they ROKK.
