There is a new kid on the block. Meaning, there is a new spot to go to on the weekends in the Coachella Valley. For a more mature audience and those who like to dress up a bit, this new spot is every Saturday at the Parker in Palm Springs. DJ JF//Discord, a local DJ whom you have probably seen spin at the electro shows around town, just booked himself every Saturday at The Parker from this Saturday till the last one of the year 2008. The Parker, as should alreday know is a historical landmark in the Coachella Valley and is probably worth your while to show up to.
What music do you spin? Primarily electronica (house, electro, techno & trance) but I also spin 80’s, Rock, Punk, Metal and even some Disco…haha!
How many years have you been DJing? I’ve been Djing for 8 years now. I started while I was in college back in 2000 just doing house parties and whatever. I then got my own radio show on the local station called “A Little Bit Louder” which was focused on metal and all things heavy. From there I got interested in elctronica and purchased a set of decks and learned how to mix vinyl on the 1’s and 2’s. I haven’t looked back since. I love electronica and the different styles associated with it. Whether it be house, minimal, electro, techno, tech-trance or hard dance. I love it!!! I also have a degree in Broadcasting.
What is your new Saturday night gig about at the Parker? It’s all about good times, good people and good music. We’re trying to elevate the level of nightlife here in the valley and make it something that people look forward to every and every week.
The Parker is a really nice hotel. Can you give a brief decription of the inside? dress code? cost of drinks? The inside of the hotel is very chique and very 70’s. It’s got a style all it’s own that has to be seen. The dress code is open to your own individual style but street clothes won’t fly. You’re gonna want to make a good first impression. The drinks are on the higher end of the price tab so come with your wallet open…haha!
How long will this weekly be going on for? We just had the grand opening on the 20th of September and it will continue throughout the remainder of the year and into 2009.
List 3 songs that you think we might hear when we are there on Saturday.
Michael Jackson – Billy Jean
Tomcraft – LonlinessSander
Van Doorn vs. One Republic – Apologize
You’ll mainly a mix of Disco, 80’s and quality electronica.
