"Remember, information is not knowledge; knowledge is not wisdom; wisdom is not truth; truth is not beauty; beauty is not love; love is not music; music is the best."
The more I explore the vast world of music, the more I realize how little I understand. I try to ignore the arbitrary boundaries of music and pay attention to what seems most important to me – the musicality and creative intention of the artists. The collection here is my recorded history of exploring music and attempts at sonic assemblage. Songs with a denote my favorite mixes. Enjoy!

On January 31st, 2012 my brother Solomon Kahn died in a car accident while touring as a DJ in Thailand. Solomon’s fiance Nicole, with friends and family, organized a benefit on February 29th to raise funds to help cover financial costs incurred by the tragedy. The event featured a collection of DJs and musicians from Solomon’s scene including DJ Jazzy Jeff, Justin Hoffman, Chris Clouse, Mei Lwun. Ean Golden and Ryan Lucero. This recording is my opening set from the event - a tribute to my brother. I picked music that either expressed feelings or invoked the music my brother loved. I hope you enjoy.

A mix of laid back house with some quirky overtones. Not sure why it’s called Blissed Out - it may have something to do with the cheesy strings in the ambient mix of Chicane’s Offshore or it could have just been my state of mind, but the intention now alludes me. Firesign Theater introduces and closes both sides - a surreal treat.
