DJ Brian Norwood was born during the first seedlings of dance music as we know it today were sprouting. In the 1970s, the Tea Dance at Fire Island's Blue Whale was settling in as ritual and David Mancuso's infamous "The Loft" parties in NYC were just getting started. Being born in the music-rich environment of Nashville would be a harbinger of things to come. And being born in that era would greatly impact his career. In the 90's, Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, would open its arms ...

It's so hard to pinpoint which genre is my favorite to mix and present because I love several different genres so much. But it is without question that the sound that I present on these Deep mixes resides right at the top of my list of favorites. Different DJs have different reasons and end-goals for why they DJ. I myself have always wanted to affe…

Several weeks ago I mentioned that this new edition of Sophisticated Morning was going to be deep and moody. At that time I noticed that a great deal of that type of deep house was sitting in my hold bin. Well, that didn't happen. Instead what you're going to hear here (ha!) is very much one of my traditional Morning sets. For those of you that wer…

I got back from Hawaii three weeks ago...and I swear I'm still glowing from the experience. The glow is so strong that I thought I'd share some of it with you. I played many of these songs at Epic Maui Journey...so if you were there you'll recognize most of them. I can't wait for you to hear them again. If you weren't, well, I can't wait for you to…

Have you ever heard me liken my mixes to musical arcs? Typically I mold my sets as though they form an imaginary musical arc, with a distinct beginning, peak and landing. With this mix, unintentionally, my arc is more like a straight line across (that's drenched in warm, deep, melodic and heart-soaring vibes). The feel at the end of this set is ver…

I've been planning this mix for months now and so excited about it...so it brings me huge joy to finally get it to you. I'll tell you about the influences that helped me create it and then I'll tell you about why I envision it as "Fire Island" house music. First, the influences. I was lucky enough to live in Philly during the glory days of clubbing…

As you know I have three DJ mix series that I produce: Sophisticated Deep, Morning and Chill. All three of the series are authentic labors of love of mine; artistic works that genuinely come from deep within. As I sit and ponder I sometimes think that the Deep sets differ so strikingly from the Chill and Morning sets. But upon deeper thought...no, …

Welcome to the start of one of the happiest days I have each and every year. The beginnings of my live gigs are always a big source of pride and joy for me. You've heard me mention numerous times before my belief that musical performances should form an unseen arc with a clear beginning that invites the listener in -- comforting and intriguing them…

Welcome to the segment of Epic Maui Journey where I was beginning to ramp the energy up into spine-tingling, foot-stomping anthems. I started this set off with Paloma Faith's most brilliant remake of "Make Your Own Kind Of Music" by Cass Elliot. From there I weaved through anthemic house and disco house masterpieces. My surprises during this set ar…

Several years ago I nearly renamed my Sophisticated Morning mix series to Little Journeys. I ended up not doing it because many of you talked me out of it. But if I had....it WOULD have been fitting. I have always looked at my mixes as, well, Little Journeys. The newest Sophisticated Morning is just that; a little journey. The first three songs bel…

This part of Epic Maui Journey 2023 was filled with melodic, uplifting and heart-tugging anthems. All of the songs during this stretch have vocals and vibes that were designed to send our souls flying. I can't wait for you to either relive the day (if you were there)...or hear the joy that we experienced (if you weren't). From my heart...to your ea…

I always approach the music for my gigs thinking of the event as though it were riding a musical arc. That being said...one could say that this segment is the "peak" of the day. I hesitate to say that though because during each segment of this day there was music that would send one's soul soaring high -- just in a different way. But it is true tha…

This segment of the day is always one of my very favorite parts of the Epic Maui Journey day. It's the Golden Hour when the beach is awash in that mystical golden light that is nearly impossible to describe. Because the natural beauty that surrounds us is so mighty and powerful....I believe that this is the hour that it's most important to nail the…

Pulling this podcast together was both incredibly easy -- and hard, all at once. Easy...because of how much breathtaking music I had to choose from. And hard...because of, well, how much breathtaking music I had to choose from! You see the predicament. ;-) If you're a follower of mine on one of the various streaming sites then you you've probably s…

I'm always unsure of how my Chill sets will be received because it's pretty rare to hear this genre of music mixed into a DJ set. I wouldn't say the music is rare, per se. I'd just say that it being mixed as a DJ set is. But I was always attracted to the melodic and emotional side of music and I have always insisted on having my heart lead the way …

Heart. That's the word that comes to mind when I think about my newest musical journey. I guess when I think about it I can say that I'm blessed to have always been very in touch with my heart and not afraid to share it with others. And that's where you come in. This is a collaboration -- and I'm happy it's between you and me. As far as this produc…

Hello my fellow music-lover. Good to be back with you again after a too-long absence. Life has had too much on my plate and I've not had lots of extra time to create a set...until now. Just in time, right? Spring is in the air. The sun is out. The air is warm. The birds are chirping. And here's new music to match the season. I'm always excited abou…

Of all the music that I mix and present it's the heartfelt deep house music that I love the most. And it's been more than three months since I released a Sophisticated Morning set -- so I'm crazy excited to bring this new edition to you. This mix has music by the best and most current chill and deep house artists, producers and remixers including F…

Let me tell you an awesome story. I played Epic Maui Journey on the beach every year for 7 years (until 2021 of course) and we were hoping for its return in 2022. Unfortunately because of restrictions on Maui that were lifted too late to give most people time to plan we weren't able to pull together an official party again. But 2020 and 2021 being …

Here is New Year's Eve in Detroit -- Part 2. I should note that the four parts that I'm going to upload don't flow together seamlessly. They all have quite distinctive feels that are quite different from the others. Since these are samplers of what the night would have sounded like live I wanted to neatly orchestrate these podcasts so that they wou…

Conceptualizing the music for Alan Brown's New Year's Eve party in Detroit was an incredible endeavor in joy for me as I got to get really creative with the musical journey. I should note that this is not a live recording. Unfortunately this party was cancelled at the last minute due to the omicon varient but we thought that the music should still …

One of the awesome things about having been around and immersed in music for as long as I've been is that I know songs from years ago and the general history of music that surrounds those songs -- and that knowledge guides me through my current musical projects. One of my major sources of joy is finding new remixes of songs from years ago that are …

I was lucky enough to have come of age during the glory years of the 90s when clubbing was in it's youthful years and it wasn't pounding beats far into the next morning/day. During those years the transition from late night to the early morning hours at clubs and parties were notable for the slowing of the BPM tempo as the music settled into a melo…

On all of my DJ sets I always have one or two songs that are my absolute favorites from the bunch; the songs that I listen to on repeat, over and over and over again. Well...almost unbelievably...there are about 6 or 7 of those songs on this new Morning set. These are songs that would have a legitimate shot at my "record of the year" title. Sometim…

I have always been a huge fan of many different genres of music and that's been a real blessing to me as a person but in some regards I consider it a slight curse -- as an artist. Let me explain that so that it makes sense. Personally I love many different genres of music -- some that might surprise you. I love disco, tech house, techno...and the l…

If you've ever been to either the Pines or Cherry Grove on Fire Island...then you've been blessed to experience what I say is the closest thing to heaven on earth. Fire Island is truly a place like no other. Starting with the moment you get onto the ferry in Sayville to carry you over and continuing on with every single moment you're there...there'…

You hear me talk a lot about what I call "heart-tuggers"; songs that pull at your heartstrings. I've always had a weak spot for those types of songs because I find music so much more enjoyable when the songs I'm listening to really pull some sort of strong emotion from me. Really, what's the point of music if it isn't going to affect us (and hopefu…

With this new Deep episode I am beside myself with excitement by the messages that the Sprit has brought to me...and I therefore get to bring to you. As is the usual case there are very few vocals to be found on this (Deep) mix. But I do open with two vocal pieces."Wide Eyed" by Double Touch and "Music Is My Medicine". The lyrics on both pieces jus…

I've always believed that the job is a true artist DJ is like walking a tightrope in that it's imperative to deliver music to listeners that they easily latch on to and identify with while at the same time staying true to the artistry aspect of it all by playing fresh and unique music that has a great air of surprise and mystique to it. It's always…

When I first started DJing in my early 20s I had no idea of the magical ride I was about to embark upon. Few things seem to be forever, but one thing that I've discovered as the years have rolled along...is that there are two things that have been "forever" in my life: my drive to deliver love and joy through music and also the enduring friendships…

I've been thinking about life lately; where I've been, where I am and where I'm going. I've been thinking about the musical traditions and history that involve our gay culture and subculture. I consider myself so fortunate to have come of age when I did. The second Summer of Love from the summer of '88 had recently happened and ballooned into a ful…

One of the best things that 2020 brought me...was my discovery of "the" sound for my Deep series. If you've listened to me long enough then you'll know that there's a wide range of styles of music that I love. As a music lover, that's awesome! But as an artist it's not great as it pertains to defining my "brand". When I conceptualized the Deep seri…

This new edition in my Sophisticated Morning series is extremely special to me (and I hope it will be to you too). If you've been following me long enough or if you know me well then you'll know that I look at my musical endeavors as much more than me just serving beats to people wanting to party. I think of my music as serving a greater purpose so…

What a gorgeous collection of songs this newest Sophisticated Morning is. I start the set out with the heart-tugging acoustic mix of "All On Me" with Andreas Moe on vocals (produced by Armin van Buuren) and then weave my way through warm and emotionally rich morning music before subtly ending up on a sound of gorgeous and uplifting trance music. Ha…

Life and it's goings on will make it so that there will sometimes be slightly longer stretches between my podcast uploads than I would like there to be. That being said thank you for your patience as we just went through one of those stretches. I am super happy to end our recent "music drought" and bring to you Sophisticated Morning 77. I start thi…

It's a fine line that I walk as it pertains to keeping the sound of the various mix series podcasts that I release constant and steady, especially with the Sophisticated Deep series. It's super important that I keep the sound tightly confined within the genre that the series belongs to but equally important that I present enough diversity that the …

If you are reading this then most likely you were no stranger to dance floors and the beautiful music that has graced us over the past decades. One of the best things about music is its ability to take us back to a particular time and place as though it were just yesterday. So on that subject I'm really happy to bring you the newest edition of Soph…

One of most important ingredients in the DJ/listener relationship is trust. I believe that the most successful DJs are the ones that figure out how to convince a crowd to trust them so that they may have the liberty of being a true artist -- versus being a human juke box that plays what is demanded of them. Playing what's demanded of me always seem…

Welcome to Sophisticated Morning 74. This set drips with summertime vibes; if there was a soundtrack to lazy days around the pool or crashing waves on a beautiful beach under shimmering sunshine -- this is it. I always say that life is better with a gorgeous soundtrack to go along with it so I'm happy to mix and share this summery soundtrack to bri…

Welcome to Sophisticated Chill 9, the slower sibling to my Morning series. The music that I source and play for the Chill sets have very much the same feel as the Morning sets -- with the only difference being that they chug along at a slower pace. This Chill set clocks in between 105 & 110 bpm, whereas the Morning sets groove along at about 120 bp…

Welcome to Sophisticated Deep 12. The Deep series has fast become a favorite of mine to mix. It's what I call the deeper, sturdier and more worldly sibling to my Sophisticated Morning series. These songs have the same warmth and melody that the Morning series has but are largely missing the vocals. The music that I find for the Deep series is somet…

This is the continuation of the Flagging In The Desert Party that I spun in Palm Springs on February 29, 2020. It was a day full of sunshine, bliss, laughter and love.

The art of creating soundscapes is a really tricky thing. There are so many circumstances that go into magic happening and there is never any way to know that it's happened until it's already in process or it's played itself out. I just had one of those really rare experiences; I composed a set that fell together so seamlessly and with such little …

Welcome to Sophisticated Deep 11. You know, my creation of podcasts is a long and winding process. The amount of music that I have to sift through to find enough to put on any one podcast is staggering. And the amount of time that I spend shopping for the music is equally staggering. And once I have the music gathered and sit to compose a mix...a w…

I like a lot of music but I reserve LOVE for very few pieces of music. I usually "frame" my mixes around the particular pieces of music that I love the most. Most of the time my sets are built around a few songs that are my favorites and sometimes it will be literally, one song, that the entire set is built for. So I'm really excited to present to …
