2013 has been a party. There’s no list, narrative or image that can neatly wrap it up. But it has to be remembered. So instead of me fumbling around describing my memories, I’ve collected yours, here. The following is a timeline of tweets from you from 2013, punctuated by media from me. Here’s how we threw it down.

Whoa x (2)!
Tic Toc…2013 winding down. Where you gonna be when we flip the switch? @xslasvegas
I feel gratitude every day for all the ways life gives me what I need. Family. Friends. Freaks. The holiday season reminds me to put these things in the front of my mind. To be charitable. To be introspective. To give a little more.
Clearly all this contemplation needs a soundtrack.
But holiday soundtracks can get really bad, really quickly when left to chance. To that end, I’ve wrapped up some Holiday tunes for you. These are songs I’ve created over the years. Some original, some remixes of legends you may recognize. All work that I’m proud of, and hope you’ll enjoy. They’re not all about Christmas, but speak to the spirit of the season. So even if you’re bah-humbugging your way through December you can still sneak a candycane and enjoy the merry feels for a bit.

16 years ago. #TBT thanks to @1974design for the flashback.
I. Like. Fire. #EDCOrlando
Oi Brazil! Man….I think it’s serious between us. Looking forward to this, ta ligado?
#EDCO. This was _______. I mean, I don’t even have the proper word.
We are the Twitter-trained, status-update ready, Instagram cosmopolite. If you are anything like me, I’m guessing you can listen to music for hours, but not have the same stamina for watching a screen. I get it. So I’ve adapted how I want to present my audio and visual souvenir of our time together in the Atmosphere.
Today on Soundcloud I’m releasing my live set from the Atmosphere show in Los Angeles on October 19, 2013 at The Shrine. It is uncut and unedited. From start to finish you can hear what went down, including those moments when my audience’s collective voice rivals the massive sound system.
I like it loud. I like you loud.
There were multiple cameras at every show, some in your face and others behind the scenes. We caught you posing for the camera and listening to the music speak. Every show had stand out moments that couldn’t be touched. We captured them. American Airlines Arena in Miami, Barclays Center in New York, Navy Pier in Chicago and The Shrine in Los Angeles, you guys brought it. There were over 50 thousand people collectively that experienced this show, and probably several million ways we could have put this story together. But here’s how it will go.
I’m cutting the video up into six parts that will be released over the next few weeks. There is footage from all of the shows in each video. But the soundtrack for each video is a portion of the set I released today on Soundcloud. If you were there, at any show, you will recognize your night.
This is my “Thank you” to the people who made it work. My audience: the ones who showed up as well as the ones who couldn’t make it. These nights changed my life and these are my scrapbooks to look and listen back on this tour, Atmosphere.
