DJ Rhom Update

Yeah Yeah Yeah,

It may seem like I have died, fallen off the face of the Earth, or just gone into the Abyss of idling...but the real life truth is that since the last update my beautiful wife Rhialle gave me the most precious gift in the world...a healthy baby boy.  Since then my primary focus is (and to this date is) taking care of my little man.  He means the world to me and for anyone to say otherwise really needs to look upon themselves to delve into what is important in life.  Personally before the birth of my son I found it hard to relate to the parental instincts of my friends.  That all changed when baby Andrew was born.  Some weird things about being a new parent are that I am no longer afraid of holding newborns, I am used to being puked on, and I got a course correction into what exactly is important in life.  Here is a of picture of my little man...

So, in the past few months, he has been my focus.  Now on the Real Life work front, the nuclear power plant I work at is getting ready to go into a shutdown to refuel.  What that means is that I will be working as many hours as possible by law to support that.  So, the bottom line is that DJ Rhom will still be on hiatus until mid May.  I hope you all understand that RL by far takes precedence over DJ'ing and I look forward to coming back sometime in May.  By no means does that mean I am giving up DJ'ing in SL.  To the contrary, I cannot wait until I am able.  It is just that I need a little bit longer to get things into order on the Real Life front before I can provide you with the quality of mixes that over the past 3 years that you have come to expect.  I look forward to your continued support until then.

04/25 @ Toontopia!

Monday morning I was back in Toontopia for some more house music.  I followed on the heels of DJane Ebony who spins some awesome vocal trance.  For my set she switches roles and becomes my hostess lol.  For this set I wanted to keep with the house theme but focus the sound a little more on the house and a little bit less DISCO, which I have been doing a lot of as of late.

With Ebony handling the customers I was able to keep things rocking!  Many thanks goes out to the Korean and Japanese customers that came out!  I love having ya guys in TT!  Lemme tell you, the track selection for this set made for some difficult mixing on my end but I thought the music flowed together well!  One transition in particular was difficult and any DJ will know that when mixing and you have a track with a prominent off beat midrange sound it makes for some tricky mixing!  I really had a good time and I look forward to being back in Toontopia in 2 weeks!

04/22 @ La Festa!

Oh wow I had such a banging good time that I forgot to snap some screenshots of the event :(  I am sorry but I really had a much better time than I anticipated!  I was not sure what kinda of crowd Ryo's club would draw but I ended up having a rather large audience who were all grooving!  It was really nice to be able to spin with Orange and Ryo and I look forward to spinning there again!  If you were not there ya missed some good electro house tunes!

04/18 @ Toontopia!

Monday morning found me back again doing my semi weekly set in Toontopia!  My DJ friends were not kidding when they said it was difficult to find new tracks the last week.  I spent so many hours going through new tracks that just did not have the feeling I was looking for.  So I ended up doing a set that was hal new stuff and then half stuff from the last month or so.  I started out with the first few tracks with a house sound and then gradually built in a disco type sound that grew more and more pronounced as the set progressed.

My sexy hostess Ebony was there as always keeping the crowd pumped up.  It ended up being a pretty good crowd for the one of the hardest times to spin in SL!  People were really getting into the tunes!  I do not know how much longer I will be doing disco type stuffs but I think I will continue to experiment with the regular flavor of house.  I look forward to seeing ya guys there next week!

I am back at Toontopia doing my normal semi-weekly event!  I plan on continuing my latest theme of house / tech house and I look forward to seeing ya all there!  For those that may wonder why the change to the 3 AM slot it is due to time changes and when my hostess is available.
