|I love being a \"Bard\" because of it\'s complexity. I have to be fully present, conscious, observant, directing, loving, creative, athletic & totally out of control; pulsating tantrically in the undulating oceans of poetry, music, dance, & art.
I’m writing my bio like I’m creating a mix. Isn’t that what life’s about? I want 2 pack the dance floor from the psychology of it. Ya, I can play concert piano but it’s not really intimate. I can cruise with the Blues but that’s so internal. The day I found Djing I knew I’d come home.
I love the synergy of being an Italian/American. Summers in Italy as a teenager, I was partying @ all the best nightclubs. I got a head start in Italy Djing b/c in 1994 @ age 14, I wasn’t a kid, I was man. It seemed like it was the 60’s because @ 16 in 1996, I learned to party hard legally. Like an explosion underground I fused Italian House w/ American House & something new was born inside of me. By the age of 20, in 2000, I was Djing underground House parties in Santa Barbara, California. The minute I turned 21, I was Djing in Santa Barbara’s premier nightclubs* w/ headlining performances.
Over the years my discipline & training in Aikido a Japanese Martial Art, I am a Black Belt, gave me the discipline and focus to become a Deejay rather than just a party animal. O~Sensei Morihei Ueshiba 植芝 盛平, the founder of Aikido, has taught me the 7 Virtues of Bushido; "Gi" Right Action, "Yuuki" Courage, "Jin" Benevolence, "Rei" Morality, "Makoto" Honesty, & "Chuugi" Devotion.
I continue my Aikido studies w/ Sensei Ken Ota under the guidance of Master Koichi Tohei 藤平光, a 10th Dan Aikidoka & founder of the Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido, literally “Aikido w/ Mind & Body unified”, but commonly known as Ki-Aikido. Sensei Ken Ota has been recognized by & holds an honorable spot in the United States of America Martial Arts Hall of Fame & is the only Aikido dojo in California to hold such a prestigious position.
With great intensity I apply these virtues & their principles to my music, dance, poetry, & art & to my fulfillment through mastery of my craft as a Bard. From 2001 to 2007, I was the opening set House Dj for America’s Top Dj Headliners**, you know who they are. In 2008, I took a year to reinvent myself & learn about the business because looking @ everyone else I knew I had a choice of burning out or having a career. I’ve come back out as dj.Hotlogic.
I’ve gained some wisdom along the way and I’ve learned to only collaborate with people that want to be #1. I’m not carrying anyone. I mastered the art of being local and global as one. I love pushing myself to my own growth edge. I’m studying the Art of Hip Hop with Tamarr Paul, Rhythm Dance & Fitness Studios, & he choreographs my mega mixes for his Hip Hop performances and is the #1 Best Dance Studio in Santa Barbara.
I love collaborating with live vocals, choreography, dancing & dancers, visual graphics, & custom video mixes. Collaborating is the best if it's with the best, & that is why I've signed on for a weekly Saturday night residency with the Chicago based Internet Radio Station, WORLD VIBE RADIO "the vibe heard around the world..."
