On Rejection

On Rejection

There is a ton written on the web and in print about rejection. I’m writing this blog entry in an attempt to reconcile a rejection I’ve just received. Lately I’ve been breaking my long term goals down into shorter term goals, which then funnel into daily and weekly tasks to further my career as a...
Sunshine Jones: Fall Down (Eric Sharp Remix) - A Love Letter

Sunshine Jones: Fall Down (Eric Sharp Remix) – A Love Letter

Sometimes the music business seems like it’s not a very friendly place. It can be difficult to know whom to trust, and this can feel isolating. I can’t possibly underscore enough the importance of finding people who can serve as mentors in some way, shape, or form. Had I not done so I would have...

Download: Wongo – Days Are Gone (Eric Sharp Dub)

Hey y’all, I busted out this lush, moody vibed-out dub of Wongo’s “Days Are Gone” to give away with the Vanguard EP.

Opening for Squarepusher

Opening for Squarepusher

Every so often I get a booking request for a show that doesn’t seem real when I get the offer. This was definitely one of those events. First off, Squarepusher is one of the most respected, forward thinking electronic music artists in the world without question. He is signed to the seminal Warp Records which...
Media Contender Mixtape & Interview

Media Contender Mixtape & Interview

My much-respected homies at Media Contender asked me to make an exclusive mix for them after my SXSW set warming the decks up for Photek, Apparat, Grenier and Kuru. The result is kinda twisted, ranging from mental tech-house to tear out electro. It features several exclusive original productions that I’ve made which have never been...
