But, I’m here now. And, once again, I’m “On the List”; and quite the list it is. Of “The Hottest DJ’s on the Planet” (*their quote not mine). Which means I’m playing again for Miami’s Winter Party, presented by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. It’s most definitely one of the biggest, most Represented “Circuit” parties of the year, anywhere in the world. And, It’s Right here in our back yard, which means, that You....Should do your job to keep the fight going by supporting these events. So please, try to come out to help them, help us, help Me, make sure that their services to Our Community, Live on. Tickets for “Sweat” are Only $10. in advance, $15 at the door. It’s without doubt, one of the sexiest crowds to gather, So, gear UP and bring some Love to Shake and Rub. I promise.... I’m doing my part of the job to make it memorable. Can you just imagine how excited I AM. I played this same party last year to a Very hot crowd. So, I know if you were There, at Bill’s Filling Station ,for “Sweat”, Last year, and I know, You know what I’m sayin’.... then I hope you will plan on making This years party, even better. Word of mouth you know. It’s a great time to be seen. And, as I always say....”You have to be Seen, to be Had.” See you at Sweat.!! Music....As Always....There’s been So much good musics to fall in love with. All kinds of hotties out there ….vocals, and not vocals. Techy, noise tracks that are just to take their heads off.....and Sexy deep grooves, that grab you at the hips just to give you a good shaky shake. So, Right now, I’m going to jump Head First, right back into 2013 with some of the big room, peak night, main stage bangers that I’ve been pumping.....just a taste to Wet your, um,....Whistle. The Music: (*Yes, I’m Still using CDs...With, Only 2 sources....rrrrr.) This set puts us in the club, right about when the bus lets off around 12:30 / 1am. Peak night....Push ‘em till they Rub it off, Sexiness... to just see how much they can take. With a Twist. BTW.....They Did. !! Here’s hoping that I’ll be seeing you all for a good night on the town (*slurp) Soon. Love all around Herbie http://www.herbiejames.com http://www.winterparty.org
I AM....a Disc Jockey, I AM
download iamdiscjockeyiam3.mp3 right click and save to download Ohhhh yes I AM. I am also the Walrus...I am the Eggman....and, I have been assimilated...(they Did say you would be.) I read some blogs. I Am Big and I Am small. My part is Big, and my part is small. But it’s the Music that keeps me going. Hey, hey, I’ve always been a dancer. Learned my Realness on the sidewalks of the Mississippi delta...(grew up on Motown soul and funk).....danced Right On through to the Big clubs. Loved me some Dj’s. And, having Always loved music ...it was just Kismet that I was enabled to spin for some Legendary clubs and parties. Thank you everyday Universe, for giving me the drummer inside. And the “ear”. (...and my Pencil cactus...and my piANo....and my(on and on.)...no Really! So, Turns Out, that This set does..make me dance. See if it does it for you. Of Course I hope it does. Because, inside my DJ head, shaped that it is; I try to please everyone, within the boundaries of what’s in the bag at the moment. And depending on the Who’s in the room, where I’ve taken them Before, the Requests coming in (yesss, I have been known to play them, don’t hate.) Some HerbieHistory...Some of you might know me from the DJ Store days. (15 years as a buyer. Wow, Those were some days, as there were a Lot of famous And infamous people through all that.) Which makes me a giver...(w). So, sitting here listening to the set. This song is playing; and working me. By DC Rodriquez, called “Crazy Freakin’ Maniac’, on System recordings. ‘Bin of Fierceness’ approved. Eme if you want a chart. Anyways....it’s a short (i.e. edited) set...beCause....I took the “Podcasters Editorial Privilege; Provision 22; Act I, Verse two (with a chorus)” liberty...which states....”Podcaster, may feel free to edit some “Meat” out of said song, If he / she deems said song to be either...“too Much to endure the nastiness during a train crossing with the windows down.”....or “If it is So played Out that he / she feels you’ve already heard it enough to know the video moves and therefore don’t want / need to subject the driver Next to you, at a train crossing....to endure it.” So, yes,...I edited out a bit of “meat” of that Kiki song, and that F*****g song....for just Those moments. Forgive me if I have overstepped. Meantime....This is still; Only a Very small Shot of how we DOIT in the little Big city. Hope you’re assimilated by the experience. Maybe it will enable Us to dance Together soon. Till the next time. Keep your heads to the sky....Call your Mother....Eat your fruits and veggies....and Stay Tuned. Love all around Herbie http://www.herbiejames.com
He Thinks he's Straight
download He Thinks he's Straight.mp3 right click and save to download Yessssss My Children. This, was “One of Those Nights”. I love my Friday’s. They are most Def one of the best nights in the club. I can usually gauge that by close to midnight....there will be a Havin’ It crowd. Some usual suspects....who I love....and always a few new faces....unsuspecting tourists and some locals who heard about our little scene, but just came by to see how we DO. Love them all. But, sometimes....it gets rowdy. They yell at me....ok, and I yell back....to stir it UP. This, was one of those! Here’s a set of some big....Main stage....proggy Anthems....My Peak Night Sound of late. I think that pretty much covers it. I will suggest that if you are nearby sometime.....that you actually get out and come by the club.....to hear / watch it all Happen first hand....as the sound system is rockin’....the crowd is friendly and, like I said before, “Havin’ IT”. Yes, I’m spoiled. I Still use CD’s...(*no sync button Yet.) I hope you get me. I play a Lot of new musics...and test some that only get played once or twice....it’s hard to keep up, I know. But, I lean towards playing more Melodic, UPlifting, Feel Good vocals and yes, some techy side of the big room. I think you’ll Like. So, press play....turn it up Loud....and have a “Kiki” for Me....With Me. I sincerely do Hope that you will get to hear it Live on a floor near you soon. Served up Herbicidal.....the way I DO! Meantime....Keep your heads to the sky.....Your hands in the air.....your Voices Out and Proud...Eat your veggies....Call your Mom....and above all....Stay Tuned! We ain’t done yet.

Download Bath House 1.mp3 Right Click and Save to download You said a Mouthful, What Really happened was.... Me, minding my Own business....Doin’ my Own thing...when it All broke loose. It was like, head down and speeding down the road toward the rail...and by that time, it was Out of my hands. I had been warned ….that there were going to be famous people involved....and, that I had better keep my clothes on. Well...That didn’t happen either. Believe me when I tell you....I’m innocent. But, then it happened. Somebody had climbed up on the stage....and they started yelling. Things started flying....some things were said that can Never be repeated. There was a firetruck involved....and by close....well let’s just say....some good clothes were torn.... hearts had been broken....and I was Face down in the kiddie pool. Electro house just Blaring away. Backing up a bit. I get to play some Wild parties ….and so it happens every other Saturday night. The rules are No cameras....and No vocals. Picture it. Wild I tell you....and Yes....there’s a pool table involved....ask Billy. Sonically....it’s a mash of progressive electro....and tribal. Yes....A Word slips out now and then....but No Divas...and No Dance Vocals. !! Tell me that That’s not a hard gig! But, sometimes....the sets are Sexxxxxxy. These are a couple of them. So, Forgive me the low 60hz hum under the whole mix....which you’ll probably never hear....it’s not me....it’s them. But the sexual tension is thick....and the beats are Hhhhhot. Conjure up your own mix of the kiddie pool circumstances....and turn up the volume....and enjoy a truly Herbicidal Backroom Treatment....I call it Bath House music. I really do wish that you ALL could get the Full “Treatment” and hear it All. You’ll just need to get Out more to keep up. I play it ALL....and I love all kinds of music. Call me Inconsistent if you must.....but I play the room....it’s a gift...and I’ll give it the Way it’s Given to Me.....with Love. Can you Feel me. Trust me....I have some Early sets to love you with soon....but it’s hard choosing which ones to lay on you first and when. I’m Very distracted you must know. So, Be Patient. Meantime....enjoy this hardness for what it is. Love all around Herbie http://www.herbiejames.com
The WMC 2012 Treatment pt 1
download WMC2012part1 mp3 right click and save to download Winter Music Conference 2012 What can I possibly say about WMC that hasn’t already been printed, videoed, lived, survived; all of it Loved? I have personally registered for 17 of them. (I still have the badge on lantern to prove it. I was doing WMC when that badge made you a Club King. When it had it’s start in Fort Lauderdale. I have my picture (*eating breakfast at the Nervous Records “Denny’s” party, after coming back from a marathon party at Space, so ya know (w), in Mix Magazine. I’ve even DJ’ed my fair share of WMC events....and have the flyers to prove it. (not going to drop the names here.) Fun times. Lots and Lots of Great WMC stories to be told. Feel free to send me some of yours. I’ll tell you some of Those stories next time we have lunch. But, Musically. The Thing....that I Love about WMC is. No matter Where you go....What party you decide to endure. Or, which one you go to, to get you to the Next one. There will Always be a DJ in charge....that is There because he/she Truly Loves the Music...the Process...the People....and he/she Will be intent on serving up something musical to connect the Creative, the Current, the Classic, and the Unique. And he/she will Always try to make it so you walk away feeling like you have heard or experienced something that you will have not heard at any other event. Something that you will want to say to others....”You Should’ve heard this set.” And, they will Wish It. That’s....what I try to bring to the weekend. Hey, you Never know who could be listening. So, I Test a Lot of new music during this time. I play some Deep Classics to connect with times past. Some styles that may not always be “Friday night”. This is that set. It’s live at the club....they are spoiled. Fun times. So, As My world spins....I hope our planets collide on a dancefloor near you soon. Meantime, Stay tuned. Call your mom....and spread some love all around. Herbie http://www.herbiejames.com
