live & studio mixes
a collection of live and studio mixes I have recorded over the years. visit my soundcloud account to download my shiznit!!
Once upon a time in a land that is not very far from here but very different from our own, there was a bright-eyed young boy with crate of records and a dream of playing them at Burning Man. He caught a ride in a friends RV with nothing but clothes, a cooler, blankets, and his record bag. His first set on the Playa was an 8 hour marathon set at Green Gorilla Lounge in a RAGING dust storm. That was 2004 and 11 years later, the record has been shattered….. This is the first installment of New Years Day, 2016, a 15.5 hour set running the gamut of musical genres from house to breaks, mid tempo to Funk and back again. I will be releasing this in sections over the next couple of months, so be like Dre and keep an eye out for the next episode. So much thanks and love goes out to Josh & Nicole for giving us the venue to make all of these incredible memories possible.
Amazing time along side the Feather River with great friends and my first time performing at this incredible west coast festival.......sprinkle in my man J Pod and a little Fort Knox Five and you have a recipe for awesomeness. ='] click on the title for track listing
This set was recorded LIVE at The Bounce 2013 on 3 cdj's and a Pioneer mixer WITHOUT the help of any beat sync technology. The crowd was recorded on external condenser microphones and mixed in post production to transport you into that moment, and make the mix feel more alive. I would like to thank Steve, Kim, Bryn, Lisa, Coop, Jugoe for the graphics, the whole crew of The Bounce festival, every Artist/musician, the people who made it possible by attending and dancing their asses off, and my Tahoe family (you know who you are).

This is a live set I performed at Public Works in San Francisco for Brass Tax annual Star Wars party "May The Fourth Be With You: The Empire Strikes Brass". Every sample I used to scratch of or just play was taken from "Empire Strikes Back" except for one.....the very first sample I use in my intro is from "Spaceballs", one of my favorite movies. The reason for this is I was dressed as Barf for the party.......or Barfalomew....enjoy you scruffy looking nerfherders!!
this was recorded live at The Auld Dubliner in Squaw Valley on April 7th, 2012. I wasn't planning on releasing this to the public, but the more I played it, the more I liked it, and my friends kept on asking where to get it soooooooooo, here it is!!! The debut recording of the elusive, one and only, funktastic micah j foxx.
this set was recorded at Shakedown, a warehouse party in SF put together by my homegirl Kimba & royal audio productions. My good friend Simple Greene played right before me and was nice enough to record my set as well. Unfortunately "somebody" unplugged me towards the end of my set so this recording doesn't exactly end true to form but we make it work. Thanks to all who helped and thanks to you for listening.
micah j on the 1st run of Chango's Sunday Night Showdown. A radio show by Chango Loco. Go to www.truckeetahoeradio.com to tune in on Sunday nights starting at 9pm.
epic set on the Beach stage at one of the best West Coast festivals, and my all time favorite for sure. The energy at this moment was INCREDIBLE. The stage was bouncing so much that my friend Bass Cadet had to hold my beer cause it kept tipping over. They eventually had to kick people off for fear of it breaking. Really did at that moment define why they call this festival The Bounce.
my third studio recording inspired by and dedicated to my sister and best friend Kim Herrlein. I recorded and mastered this at 4am the night before we left for the burn 2007 and had 100 printed copies ready for handout before we left the next evening. Next time you see me ask me how I came up with the name ;-)
my favorite studio recording, recorded 2 days before we left for the burn in 2008. I have been getting an amazing response from this mix because I took it back to the days of funk. Back to my roots.
this is a timeless mix of amazing deep house, a genre I used to play exclusively. Many of my friends (as well as me) consider this to be their favorite mix to put on as the sun is coming up. It’s a live recording from a party called Soul Lounge that the kids who used to throw REMEDY in SF came up to do one summer.
