In case you aren’t on my mailing list…

Well the subject line just about says it all… I’m moving to Florida soon. Why? I have a good job opportunity line up down there and I’ve been interested in FL for some time. I’ve got family there [including Daddy Charles] and in general I just think it will be good for me. I’m headed about 1300 miles south to Port St. Lucie where I’ll be relatively close to Miami.

For a long time New England has been good to me. I grew up as a DJ in a Hartford basement, and I still miss the Muni dearly. I’ve played parties in every state in the Northeast over the years and have many fond memories of them all. If I can come close to duplicating that in Florida I’d consider myself a lucky man. I want to thank everyone for all the love and support over years. This journey through electronic music has been a wild one, and I’m looking forward to the next chapter of it. I don’t really know what else to say except: Thank you for the memories, the good times, and the great dancefloors.

I’m going to a farewell gig before I leave so we can all rock it one more time. I can’t give out details yet, but I will say this… I’m reviving Discretion for one final night. Expect to information about a clandestine invite only party very soon. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

So yeah, I’m leaving, but there is good news. You can still hear me anytime you want on the DanceCast and my blog “Room 211″. Both can be accessed by heading over to¬†

Thanks again everyone, I will miss you.
