The Quiet Ones: A Phuture Frequency Halloween Special

It was October 31, 1997. I was spinning records at a party in Upstate New York. From the elevated DJ booth I saw my girlfriend (now my wife) being accosted by some guy and I ran downstairs and straight towards him…in the middle of my set. I never made contact with him; it took three or four of my friends to hold me back while I was charging at him. Despite all this, I went back upstairs and finished my set. I wouldn’t spin another Halloween party for at least eight years.

Taking this into consideration, I find it more than a little ironic that I was asked to record this year’s Phuture Frequency Halloween show. I was all set to decline when I realized that I needed this challenge and the catharsis. It was a chance to step away for a moment from the listening room vibe I get into with Us & Us and dive into the darker material that I have at home. Just wanted to have some fun with it, really.

The show title comes from the sa ying “It’s the quiet ones you have to look out for,” which is something that has been said about me on several different occasions. I’ll be back to my usual side room selector business next month. Until then, have a safe Halloween and I really hope you enjoy this one…
