When I saw on facebook that Ag Lag was having a party on my birthday I got stoked because I wanted to DJ my own birthday. I asked, and even though none of them had heard me play before, they said yes. I don’t own any equipment or anything, so I asked Alaska if he could bring his set-up and I could ask Ag Lago if he could DJ too. Of course Ag Lago was down. I knew everything would come together last second and kick ass and it did. Instead of Alaska’s set up, Jon brought his bigger Native Instruments S4 controller and a crazy iPad controlled light set up (and he played a kick ass set, yeah lots of shit kicked ass that night). The only other time I had Djed in front of people was spontaneously at FISHMOUND, but this Ag Lago party felt like my real first time.
Thanks Jon, Alaska, Daniel, and Newark for your musical support.
I’ve got to say that Coleman has one of the most positive and charismatic energies I’ve ever seen in a DJ. He exemplifies that attitude in his tweets, “Thanks to my Baby @marybeezee and dear friend @mikepark8 for the inspiration today! Thank you @Do_over for letting me express myself.” What a cool guy, and he’s a photographer!

The line was fierce. People were friendly. The weather was perfect. Somehow I didn’t get sunburn.
And of course, the music was on point. I saw Scott K and Jeremy Ellis. Now stop, google “Jeremy Ellis,” and come back. Pretty sweet right? He is the master of live MPC/MPD. I spoke with him briefly after his set and he credited his ability to a family history of classical pianists. He’s also from Detroit, Michigan (my home state), which is sweet. Unfortunately I dipped during Mr. Choc‘s set to grab another battery from my apartment. I came back in time for Al Jackson and the fireworks.
At one point during the day I was standing next to Pops and out of no where he just smiled and said, “So many dancing partners.” Not, “lotsa hot chicks here,” or, “look at the _____ on that _____,” but, “so many dancing partners.” Respectful swag.
And did you see the prosthetic arm with a wristband on it? It belongs to the b-boy in the photo! I tried to remember his name. I know it has something to do with the arm. I think it’s Socket? Does anybody know? The man could dance and was warm and humble. He reminds me of Bill Shannon or B-Boy Junior, but they have all their body parts. It just goes to show you how important dance is to the human experience.
