I am Bee, a music and photography passionate as well as a Network Engineer and runner. This website revolves mainly around my music activity through my current residency on friskyRadio where I host Synchronicity, a monthly Deep Progressive House show.
This blog has been around the web since I started spinning records, around 2006. It’s a centralised place where I showcase my passions about music, friskyRadio, photography and last but not least my passion for running. If you happened to stumble upon this page by Googling me, yes it’s true, I am a network engineer by day working for a French B2B/B2C ISP (and making this discovery happen through the magic of the Internet and BGP, oh well, never mind). So hello to you and thanks for your interest in Googling me.
About the music
Music is the Key Element of this blog. My music journey started in 2000, as a guitarist and bassist in many rock/jazz projects. Electronic music was never too far though, and my DJ journey took another turn after meeting a couple of DJ friends in Beirut, Lebanon, who challenged me and initiated me into spinning records. Influenced by many music styles and artists, I am inspired by everything around me. Every set is a unique experiment, blending Deep, Tech and Progressive House as well as Rock, Hip Hop and Jazz riffs. A colourful music, that grooves, that tells stories, to which my listeners can relate to.
I am a resident DJ on FRISKY with my monthly show Synchronicity every 3rd Thursday of the month at 7am PST / 4pm CET. The show promises to be a unique and intense journey into the latest and hottest grooves. Whether you’re travelling, road tripping, training, commuting or just chilling at home, the set is a groovy rendez-vous that will make you forget the notion of time. Guaranteed to make you dance all the way!
All sets on the Music page are available, FREE of charge for your listening pleasure. However, consider subscribing to FRISKY to support us in bringing you the best in Electronic Music. Your feedback is always appreciated.
My music is focused on “Engaging on a musical journey” and depends greatly on my mood.
What do I mix on
My studio setup is mainly controlled by Ableton Live Suite 8. Most of my radio sets are recorded with Ableton as it offers unlimited wiring possibilities which helps marry mixing with production. It helps me connect my tracks with my Reason 7 racks, VSTs and acoustic instruments.
The live setup that I use when broadcasting through MixLR is controlled by Traktor 2.6.5 Pro, an X1 controller wired through a 4 channel mixer. The setup is due to evolve with time as I love to experiment with new Hardware. Traktor delivers a straight forward interface which helps me focus on the music, my flow and the progression of my live set.
When invited to mix at my DJ friends’, I usually use their Traktor Scratch setup hence spinning on their CDJ’s 800′s with a DJM-800.
What about productions
My productions were mainly focused on Progressive Rock and Trip Hop records and are currently at a halt due to a lack of time to work on them.
About the photography
Photography is the other facet to this webspace. The project is named “briefly” and is regularly updated on 500px. You can like the page on Facebook to follow the updates. The photoblog/portfolio is about engaging on a visual journey on an everyday basis with everything around, be it landscapes, towns, people, textures, architecture, nature and so on.
