Coolin’ Tour with Abstract Rude :: Monkey Biz TV

Many thanks to the homeboy DJ Alpha and his baby Monkey Biz Media for this gem.  Lots of heat on this one, including some good footage of Electric Mayhem and yours truly, performing “Misfit Therapist” a ways before the album came out.  Enjoy!

Big Week of Shows :: See Chief!

This week is full of good shows, with lots of variety amongst them.  There will be four opportunities to see me perform this week, and believe me, they are all worth the time…

Monday : Electric Mayhem will be holding our final Monday installment, and it will feature live drums by Patrick Montgomery.  The show takes place at Triple Crown (206 N. Edward Gary), and after this one, it will be solo Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice sets with occasional guest DJs.

Tuesday : The following night will be the CD release party for “It/ll Be Better Tomorrow”, and it will feature the amazing stylings of Henry + The Invisibles.  For those who need a reminder:

This is definitely a DO NOT MISS show… and it’s a great chance to support two local giants on the music scene.  This show also takes place at Triple Crown.

Thursday : One door closes, another opens, they say… Monday marks the end of Electric Mayhem as a weekly entity, but you can still catch the duo every first Thursday at Tantra Coffee House.  This is the inaugural show, and you better believe there will be more to come…

Saturday : Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice return to Firehouse Lounge (Austin) for some exploratory sound sessions.  No cover, good tunes, and cheap drinks… what more can you ask for?

Electric Mayhem : All The Way Live!

Electric Mayhem has been busier than ever, and it shows.  Here is some random newness to the world of Electric Mayhem… Enjoy!

Here is a free download of our latest Austin show… or at least, the highlights.  It was well mixed, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.

Here are some new audio-visuals recently introduced to the realm of YouTube and beyond.

Thank you for your time.

New Doom!

I love putting the spotlight on Electric Mayhem… working as a team is dope.  Sometimes, however, I gotta sit back and admire the times when I cut loose.  These mixes are moments that I have enjoyed during various DJ gigs, whether they be club, wedding, house party or whatvever… these two mixes are from last week’s Electric Mayhem (Monday nights, Triple Crown).

Dig it and dig it good.

New Electric Mayhem Mixes!


A Word on Electric Mayhem

For almost a decade, I have had the pleasure of knowing that I never have to go a week without at least one gig.  Electric Mayhem has definitely been a godsend, and I am proud that we still do it weekly to this day.

Electric Mayhem serves as a sort of therapy… it allows me time to make sense of the mass amount of music I have been exposed to.  Dots are connected amongst songs, styles and artists.  Hits of yesterday and today are given a chance to flex their muscle, and forgotten or unknown gems get a chance to shine.  All who witness leave either entertained or educated.

I bring TheDoomsdayDevice with me, including a Serato setup, MIDI controller and Korg Kaoss Pad.  My partner in crime, sPYhOP, sticks with the traditional DJ setup of turntables, mixer, and tons of vinyl.  Having been friends before our working relationship began, the chemistry between us is as natural as can be, and half of the entertainment is watching us work with each other.

You can catch us at the end of June in Austin at Plush:

We can also be found every Monday night at Triple Crown:

See you space cowboy!

Spotlight on News : sPYhOP and The Underground Post

San Marcos has been a wealth of inspiration… the town is full of musicians, artists, young business owners, aspiring politicians and otherwise creative people.  One community it lacked, however, was a community of solid DJs.

Meeting sPYhOP put an end to my solo journey as a San Marcos DJ.  An enlightened spirit who shares a passion for music similar to mine, he is a purist through and through.  sPYhOP truly encompasses the working class hero : he is a family man, a student, an on-air personality, an aspiring graphic novelist, and a first-rate independent journalist.

I had the pleasure to help him begin his pet project, The Underground Post.  Originally a print publication, it has grown into an online hub for all things involving art, music and culture.  sPYhOP also stepped in for DJ Crown as a member of Electric Mayhem, and he throws down every Monday night at Triple Crown using vinyl only.

Take a second to peek into the world of sPYhOP, and I promise that you will not be disappointed.  Who knows, you may even be inspired to be heard as well.
