You all know my feelings on this matter… I held a fundraiser this year to help prevent this kind of thing. Fucking atrocity…

Doesn’t really feel right tweeting about gigs and jetlag when a major tragedy happened in the world.

Really shocked and sad reading all the news about Conneticut. Thoughts and prayers are with the people in Newtown. Terrible

DJs are often dance floor doctors, saving us from broken hearts and mediocrity, and constantly encouraging us to be and to respect ourselves. This final tweet reflects how much they’ll be relied upon in the coming days, weeks and months.
Moments like these highlight the importance of things like music. Sometimes we need a few hours’ escape from the cruel world out there

The DJZ/10 is a collection of ten DJs that we think you should know about now. Some of them are already familiar to you, others you may have never heard of. The list is not based on (1) a secret computer algorithm, (2) social media popularity, or (3) payola. Every month or so we get together to decide if somebody from the broader A…Z directory is about to break out and should be included in the DJZ/10, or if somebody already on the list, for that matter, is “phoning it in” and deserved to be replaced by another DJ who is more worthy.×
