C.V.S. are the initials for sound guru and scientific mind Count Nicolas Bourbaki Von Smokratz. I had the distinct pleasure of making the acquaintance of Herr Smokratz at a social function recently, and after a much-heated discussion on sound theory, he agreed to master my latest mix CD. And for those of you self-confessed music trivia nerds, yes, this is the same Smokratz of Syd Barrett fame (you know...the 1969 four-track recording)! Aside from his musical endeavors, C.V.S. is also a member of the Academy of Sciences of the Nation of Poldevia. I'm currently trying to convince Herr Smokratz of adding "DJ" to his curriculum vitae, so who knows? Maybe a guest DJ set at RENDEZVOUS!? I'll keep you posted!

I am pleased to announce a new collection of music for your discerning ears. This mix includes music by Umiliani, Alessandroni, Piccioni, Morricone, Whitefield Bros., Astatke, Massiera, and many other soundtrack & sound library luminaries. I am also very honored to have had the one and only Count Von Smokratz (C.V.S.) master this for me! The sound is simply astounding, I'm sure you will agree. Copies of this new mix will be distributed at the next RENDEZVOUS! at Verdugo Bar on Wednesday, April 7th. It will also soon be available here for download.
