I spun this funky, groovy, and sometimes Latin deep house set at our launch party for Recon, a monthly on third Wednesdays at Lookout in San Francisco that I’m hosting with my homie Adam (AKA AM Rebel). We were joined by special guest Tones, who closed out the night, as well as a gaggle of folks rolling through town from DC, New York, and LA who held down the dance floor.
This set was memorable for me because it locked in an epiphany I first had in Black Rock City 10 days earlier while playing with Tasty at Darwin Fish Tank (https://www.mixcloud.com/shahid-buttar/shahid-buttar-with-tasty-darwin-fish-tank-in-black-rock-city-090415/). On both dance floors, I had a chance to serenade dear friends from various cities meeting for the first time, with my music serving among the things bringing them together. DJing obviously involves mixing and mashing up beats, but I realized those nights that, done correctly, it also entails remixing people and communities.
