It’s interesting when worlds collide. Finding a way to combine two things that are both important to me, but more than that - actually FUN - is a treat. So when I had the opportunity to partner up with some friends and create The Spark Run, I was all in. Running? Check. Music? Check. No brainer.
Let’s get you up to speed. The Spark Run is what in the past people have called a “fun run”. But we’ve updated this business. We are here to celebrate originality. This run encourages costumes, glowsticks + LED’s. You don’t have to be a runner to enjoy this. Register, show up early, take part in the activities, then walk the 5K with a bunch of friends. Obviously (you know me, right?) theres an after-party with live performances. Get down with the community of people who just shared the same experience. And if you are a runner? Get in there! Running at night, on a course like we’re creating is incredibly satisfying.
In fact, it’s so fun, that I’m going to be right there to make sure The Spark Run kicks off dripping in style. Our first event takes place in Denver, on May 9th, 2014. I will be running the 5K, and will also be performing. We will have the sound loud and lights lit. You will know you’re at the finish line, friend.
This is an event that I’m really proud to be involved with. Connecting the music I love with an environment everyone is welcome in is an uncommon opportunity. I look forward to attending as many of the runs as I can, and encourage you to participate. It is designed to include everyone.
Ignite the Night.

A year ago, I commemorated the ten-year anniversary of my album, “It’s You, It’s Me” by dreaming big of a stripped-down possibility called Redux. The inspiration for Redux was simplicity. My intention: to play small clubs, and for all who participated to be taken back a decade, when it was all about the music. When the term “House Music” meant something pure. I wanted to touch base with my foundation, and do it in a way that was intimate.
Redux has graduated from being an intention to describing a revolution where our coup d’état is a reversal of time. Redux is an observance of massive sound but restrained lights, married with hedonic amounts of deep and emotive house. When you close your eyes, you’re not missing anything; you’re doing it right. Redux will not be experienced by tens of thousands, but rather, hundreds. You know, like the way we used to do it.
