DuneCast/FRESH Sessions With Alex Harrington

I am excited to bring you the second entry in my summer Poolside Vibes series! These Poolside Vibes mixes are meant to offer a backdrop for the events of your summer. It’s no secret that the pool is the place to be once the hot weather hits us. Last month, I introduced you to my brand of pool-themed sounds to help you both heat up and cool off. Vol. 2 continues that trend and takes you deeper into the sounds of summer. Enjoy this mix, and share it with those you love. Catch me this month at The Hood Bar and Pizza on June 5 for locals night; at Schmidy’s Tavern on June 21 for The Beer Goddess’ 6-Pack Anniversary Party (more on that elsewhere in the issue); and at Francesca’s Summer Music Festival at The Gardens on El Paseo on June 27! More dates will be announced, so follow…
The summer weather has arrived, and with it comes the close to another “season” in our valley. Poolside is the best place to be over the next few months, so I thought I would debut some of my new track selections. I have been immersing myself in more chilled-out, deeper dance music, with elements that can take the listener to distant places. This month, I have provided a perfect audio backdrop to your summer festivities. Chill out with this FRESH Sessions mix at your next pool party or tanning session, and enjoy the hot cuts and deep grooves. I will be playing at the Coachella Valley Brewery, 30640 Gunther St.m in Thousand Palms, on Saturday, May 3, at the Beer and Bruises fundraiser for the Coachella Valley Derby Girls! The event goes from 5 to 9 p.m. and includes all kinds of fun stuff. Come have a beer, and support…
Our big April Music Issue will start hitting newsstands next week—and to celebrate, we're releasing April's Coachella-themed FRESH Sessions mix a bit early! The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has been around since 1999, and has grown—massively—ever since. This year’s lineup features a diverse collection of performers from all over the world. To celebrate the festival, for this month’s FRESH Sessions, I've compiled a set of tracks that includes some music by up-and-coming artists at the festival, as well as songs by some more well-known acts. I like Coachella because it showcases a wide variety of performers and genres. Everything from indie rock to trance is represented under various tents, all with an atmosphere that is electric. While the festival has lost a bit of its local element, unfortunately, it still seems to carry a strong sense of culture and creativity. As for my appearances in April: Watch my…

FRESH Sessions With All Night Shoes: March 2014

Written by
Welcome to the March edition of FRESH Sessions! I want to thank Ivanna Love (aka Cici Ochoa) for stepping in last month with her selection of tracks. There are more guest mixes on the way! I am always looking to evolve and share the best tracks I can find, often featuring local talent. This month, I've featured a track from Coachella Valley favorite Pedro Le Bass. You can find his music via at soundcloud.com/pedrolebass. Follow me on Facebook for an up-to-date list of shows. I'll be at Clinic Bar Lounge on Friday, March 7, and toward the end of the month, on Friday, March 28, I am part of the lineup for the NestEggg Food Bank Benefit Show at Bar, 340 N. Palm Canyon Drive, in Palm Springs. (The show was organized by my friend Brian Blueskye, of the Independent!) The March FRESH Mix is embedded below. Enjoy! Basement Love,…
Thanks for checking out another FRESH Sessions installment! To keep things FRESH, I will be bringing in various local DJs to guest mix throughout the year. This month, we are featuring our first FRESH Sessions guest DJ! Ivanna Love aka, Cici Ochoa, is a local who has been in the scene for some time now. Ivanna’s style is eclectic; in just one set, you’ll most likely hear tracks from several different genres. She keeps it upbeat; she keeps it fun; she keeps it FRESH. Ivanna is an inspiration with her positive attitude and impressive tastemaker skills. This month’s mix offers a perfect example of the vibe that Ivanna Love brings. She’s a great person who creates great music. So without further ado, I present to you Ivanna Love’s FRESH Sessions, which you can enjoy below. Oh, and don’t forget to catch my Cosmic Disco House Party, starting at 9 p.m.,…
