It's called Bikram. I've got a new fire burning for exercising my will. My will is something to strengthen. I can't imagine losing my will because of neglect or under use. So yeah on a hot hot summer day, I went to hot yoga - because I can. And because I can, I will. You know why? I'm still here to be who I am and do what I do, for me and for you. And, I have so much more in me to free.*

What's up with the picture? I was born on the 4th of July and I played at Soho House on July 3rd. At midnight it was my birthday and shortly thereafter, the staff sang happy birthday to me and gave me a plate with 4 massive cookies and a scoop of ice cream with a candle in it. I made a wish and blew the candle out, and then, I lit it once more and went into the photo booth to capture how I felt, which is soooooooo gooooooood!

And then I made another wish.

When I'm not wishing for more of the feeling that I feel for everyone, I'm making magic with the music and I hope it gets to you.

I had that look on my face the whole time I was mixing this, partly because at the end of this set Aloe Blacc was in the House to perform an acoustic set to friends and family.

Thank you HBO and management of the Rolling Stones for electing me to preside over the music for the post screening party for their documentary entitled Crossfire Hurricane.

Earlier this same day The Rolling Stones also released "GRRR!" - a 3/4 disc set of remastered classics with a couple of new tunes.

This night need to sound celebratory. Celebrating 50 years of the Rolling Stones' Rock and Roll with plenty of doses of soul. Members of the band wanted a night about them to also celebrate the artists that influenced them. There was a moment in the evening while the 3rd of 3 Rolling Stone's songs in-a-row was playing and Mick sent over a friend to let me know that I was doing alright with the soul and more heaping doses please.

They kept on with the keep on, the rock on, the get your groove on, and the c'mon.

Roll on.

Stones fans, sure, fantasize about what you would've played...there are so many more songs that I wanted to play, but again, this night was about them and what they wanted to hear and represent...

"You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need"

Qool DJ Marv Live at Red Rooster Harlem - February 20 2014 | Spring Is Coming
February 21, 2014 05:48 PM PST

Fundamental brilliance.

Sometimes I walk in the room and I have this irrational urge to explode what I know and have done and splatter it like Pollack to create a brand new picture. Without degradation to expectations, new combinations abound, hence expanding the experience. Another level of satisfaction is embedded in my aim to please.

A lot of eyes closed, head nod in the affirmative with a smile moments throughout this evening. Good taste recognizing great flavor.

I don't look at what I'm going to play next, I think of what I'm going to mix next. I conjure it on the screen behind my eyes, then I execute it in real time, in front of people. Performance art: putting together a puzzle made of what you can't see but you can feel.

That's the Jazz in me. Hear how I get jazzy up in Harlem at the Red Rooster.

Recorded on February 20, 2014. Springtime is coming.

6:55 and 9:25 on this explains my method and technique:

Thank you DJ Emskee for the words "Fundamental brilliance." Check out his brilliance here: and here
