If you are new to the site and just stumbling upon this page for the first time, allow me to give you a brief summary of a Jailbreak session. Unlike a recorded album, where days, weeks, and months are spent creating something similar to what you might hear on a commercially available CD, Jailbreaks are impromptu recordings that are imperfect by design. There is no planning, no editing, and no rules.
Jailbreak 008 – Swan and Dolphin Pep Rally
Disney’s Swan and Dolphin Resort requested a short “hype” mix to kick off their employee appreciation pep rally. They provided a list of songs and left everything else up to me. This is how it turned out!
Jailbreak 007 – Drum and Bass (Past and Present)
Inspired by the Drum and Bass crew, Stateside Collective, and the Jungle music of the late 90’s and early 00’s. Live mix, one take, and no edits.
Jailbreak 006 – Top 40, Dancehall, EDM, and Hip Hop
This set was a live recording from my studio on January 21, 2017. Live mix, one take, no edits, and inspired by a friend.
Jailbreak 005 – Top 40, 90s, and Hip Hop
This set was a live recording from my studio on September 4, 2016. The only inspiration I had for the mix was pint of Heineken! One take, no edits, live and completely off the cuff.
Jailbreak 004 – EDM
This set was a live recording from Universal CityWalk’s The Groove. It’s a 2 hour set that was played during Grad Bash. Recorded on April 23, 2016.
Jailbreak 003 – Top 40
This set was a live recording from Universal CityWalk’s Rising Star. It’s a 30 minute set that was played during the beginning of the night as people were making their way into the club. Recorded on January 22, 2016.
Jailbreak 002- House and EDM
This set was a live recording from Mini House Club on November 14, 2015.
Jailbreak 001 – Progressive Breaks
This set was recorded on Monday night, April 6, 2015. In a bout of insomnia, I made the decision to get out of bed and hit the studio to record what would become my first Jailbreak session. This stack of records was set aside last year sometime when I was reminiscing on the days of spinning progressive breaks. I recorded this set in no particular order. Well, actually…I played them sequentially using the random order that I had pulled them from my collection last year.
This recording was all vinyl…nothing digital here other than the software used to record the mix! Track listing below.
