Well – Twitter seems more popular these days than even facebook for the dance music industry… I’m on it here http://twitter.com/wezg There are new features these days on twitter and one of the best ways to develop a following and streamline your tweets to read only specific people’s tweets – is to create and maintain twitter lists… Takes a bit of effort but is well worth it… Here are a few I’ve created … Reading the list tweets is like a condensed form of old Mixmag or DJ Magazine for the new digital age… Just minus the journalists and coming direct from the artists themselves. http://twitter.com/wezg/producers http://twitter.com/wezg/record-labels http://twitter.com/wezg/djs http://twitter.com/wezg/djs2 Enjoy – you are free to follow any twitter lists and if you follow me and fall into any of the list categories, chances are you’ll be listed in them and will hence be picking up loads of nice twitter followers from dance music across the world.

Shuffle Artist Management expands its roster

Shuffle Artist Management has expanded its roster of artists. In addition to managing Wez G, Houston-based dance vocalist, Tricia Lee Kelshall and Trinidadian rock n’ rollers jointpop, have been on the books for a while. We are now pleased to welcome aboard a pair of talented up and coming producers from the Balkans. Uusikartano is a tech house / techno DJ/Producer from Kumrovec in Croatia, currently signed to Be-Nice Records, Los Angeles, USA. Toris Badic is a techno DJ/Producer from Belgrade in Serbia, regularly releasing on multiple European labels. I think that this pair will be great to work with and offer a slightly different range of genres to what we currently have available. Websites etc are in the process of being built and the whole Shuffle Artist Management shopfront will also be getting a new look refurb… In the meanwhile you can check the sounds of Uusikartano and Toris Badic on their soundcloud accounts. http://soundcloud.com/uusikartano

True Romance

The songs included on this mix seemed to me to have a lovey dovey theme and feel so hence the title ‘True Romance’. Deep and funky, it flows nicely, with stand out tracks from Glimpse and Vincenzo and obviously the opening classic from A Man Called Adam. Light some candles and slap a nice meal on the table, while tuned into some upfront Wez G house music. :::TRACKLISTING::: 1. A Man Called Adam – Barefoot In The Head (The Head Mix) [Southern Fried] 2. Deetron – The Maze (Original Mix) [Poker Flat Recordings] 3.

Hexstatic – Master View – Album Review I don’t have huge knowledge of Ninja Tune music – in general it’s all very good, if it might somewhat appeal to the musically snobbish…. Hexstatic stand out above the crowd.., enough to spur me to write this article… I read from their last.fm page that they were ‘electro’ which put me off – but think not cheesy hands in your air stuff – more towards the better end of Daft Punk, with some nice mellow breaks added. It has elements of funk with some lovely samples… This album, Master View, flows nicely and is very listenable. I’d say the music would work on a dancefloor but to me it’s more geared to chilling in the home…By the time you reach ‘Perfect Bird’ on the album you might be expecting an album of trip-hop like breaks and electro… This track really stands out, however, and in my eyes is the best song on the album… At this point, I decided to take note of Hexstatic as artists…The vocals on Perfect Bird are sweet… Lovely chilled melodies and certainly, from a DJ’s point of view, a very playable track, especially with summer coming up. I’d give the album a solid 8.5/10 … It is a good piece of music and I endorse it. Go out and buy it! http://lastweek.fm/wezg/reviews/hexstatic-master-view http://www.last.fm/user/wezg/journal/2011/04/22/4cdvrt_hexstatic_-_master_view_-_album_review

NEW – WEZ G NEWS

I have set up this wordpress blog for a number of reasons… Firstly there is a possibility that I will convert the main http://djwezg.com website over to a pure wordpress style layout… So I want to give it a good test. And secondly – I need a unique news feed for the new Wez G Iphone / Ipad app that will be released in mid May. This will be where news and content for the app comes from. There will be lots of other features also. There are also other sites that I use regularly to share information. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Blogger and Podomatic all have their uses in today’s hi-tech digital world. All can be seen plus a lot more on the main website http://djwezg.com I shall endeavour to keep you posted with interesting items from the Perpetual World of Delight that is Shuffle…. Wez G

Wez G Traktor DJ Sets

TRAKTOR DJ SETS HERE http://djwezg.com/traktor.html I am passionate about vinyl. It is the ideal DJ format. It is the media by which DJing first came to life. I made vows to always stick by it. Swore an oath to Enzo @ http://plastic-music.co.uk where I buy my vinyl never to ‘go digital’ – but as in Terminator, the dance music world has witnessed the rise of the machine and we live in a digital age… I started spinning the odd tune with Traktor to incorporate some stuff in my sets which was unreleased on black plastic. I then decided to give Traktor a proper whirl and invested in some MIDI equipment. It is like learning to DJ all over again. People say it’s cheating and yes, software will auto synch beats for you – but beatmatching is not something I have a real problem with anyway. The fundamentals of DJing remain the same: Good selection of music, flow of tunes, hitting the right mixpoints – it’s still all about timing and digital or vinyl that needs to be precise, beats matching or not… Anyway – for the past year or so I’ve been beatporting and traktoring… So here are the sets. I’m not dead to vinyl and still pick up the odd bit… I think live vinyl performances are better for the mind, body and spirit… I am also in the longwinded and tiresome process of converting a much cherished record collection to digital wav. My Vinyl DJ Sets are here http://soundcloud.com/wezg/sets/wez-g-vinyl-dj-sets/ http://djwezg.com ENTER INTO A WORLD OF PERPETUAL DELIGHT!

Solar Flare

A solar flare is a sudden brightening observed over the Sun surface, which is interpreted as a release of a massive amount of energy. Here in the UK we are experiencing a great deal of sunshine and warmth which is unusual for this time of year. Whereas others are nipping off to the beach, I decided to stay indoors and record a nice little DJ Mix, full of energy, ideal to get people moving after they’ve munched all their barbecue burgers. :::TRACKLISTING::: 1.
