Inside Luray Caverns

One of my favorite places as a kid was Luray Caverns, a cave in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, first discovered in 1878. Filled with stalactites (hanging from above), stalagmites (rising from the floor) and other surreal geological phenomena, it is a captivating sight.

The first image below is “The Dream Lake”, which is only two feet deep but due to the reflections creates an illusion of depth. The next image is the Great Stalacpipe Organ which uses 37 stalactites of different sizes and timbre to create the world’s largest musical instrument. The caves are so deep they were used to create what was called the first air-conditioned building in the world, a sanatarium called Limair.

Live @ Faux Club DJ Mix

Last month I did a show with Jovian (together as Disco Death) at one of our favorite venues in Chengdu, called Nu Space. This is a live house which ordinarily hosts bands and not DJs, so it was an unconventional gig for us. The venue has a phenomenal sound system and we had a lot of fun.

This mix is mostly hip hop and drum & bass, with a few surprises. It’s about 60 minutes long with 44 songs, and a tracklist below.

More Info

Aside from the event happening on a Thursday, it was from 8:30pm until 10:30pm, and in a large room with a gigantic projector screen, which was almost like being in a movie theater with no seats. It was more like being in an art gallery than an underground club, which is not the vibe we are used to.

I didn’t know exactly what I was going to play, but I had a rough outline of about 120 songs for my hour-long performance. Of that 120, I ended up playing 44 songs in about 60 minutes, which is a fast clip. I felt that a slower pace for an hour long set at 9:30pm would be boring, so I determined that I would move as quickly as I could through the hour to keep up a fast pace which would be interesting to watch and listen to.
