Nope, still haven’t written the big “Moving To South Carolina” post yet. I think it’s because I’m still getting used to it down here. Still finding all the good lunch spots, still working on my tan, etc. However, I did manage to create a pretty impressive playlist of some favorite EDM tracks called Robo Jams. It has a wide variety of subgenres, but in general the playlist is pretty upbeat. Perfect for a night of late-night code wrangling, or any other time you need to stimulate your neural net. Check it out below:
I should mention that Porter Robinson, one of my favorite DJs lately, hails from Chapel Hill, NC. It’s good to see North Carolina artists making their mark in the electronic scene.
There’s definitely been a lack of updates lately. Lots of things have been going on in the past few weeks. Specifically, I’ve relocated from Charlotte, the city I’ve called home since graduating college, to Charleston, South Carolina. I’ve been staying creative, and plan on posting some updates on a few projects, but for now, I’ll share this long-overdue album design and playlist, entitled “The Macho Mix.” These tracks are perfect for an alligator-wrestling, whiskey-swilling, molotov-cocktail-throwing night of testosterone. Local bands from NC are highlighted in bold. You can listen to The Macho Mix below, or download it on Spotify.

Ever need to knock out a rough day on the job, a brutal workout, an intense study session, or a late night of coding? I find that the best way to get shit done, when you really have to bring every ounce of grit, guts and brains to the table, is to have the right soundtrack. That’s why I’m putting together The Macho Mix. I’ll be curating a playlist 15-20 tracks of hard-hitting punk and metal expertly designed to help you get through the rough stuff.
But I can’t do it alone, I need your help. If you have a favorite song that helps you power through a long day like a hot chainsaw through butter, email me with a link to it on YouTube, Grooveshark, Spotify or Rdio. I’ll post it here with a fancy-ass album cover design. To keep the playlist cohesive, I’m asking only for good punk and metal this time. Future “Design A Playlist” posts may be more eclectic. Thanks to my lovely wife Krista for the idea and to you for contributing.
