Welcome to Always Never Yesterday, an occasional newsletter about music, art, opportunity and good times. I hope you like it.



The Second installment of the Always Never Yesterday Podcast series comes from America's Sweetheart, aka Sappho. Megan has deep roots and an even deeper record collection. She works tirelessly to create dance floor magic where ever shes goes but I'm happy she calls Portland home.

This exclusive mix is a "heavier and headier" collection but still has her signature cosmic disco vibes we've come to expect from this master selector.


Sappho is a very busy bee so I'm a bit shocked that I was able to convince her to sit down and answer some questions about the future. Enjoy

How will tomorrow be different?
Dorothy Parker says it best: "Tomorrow is gone--we'll have tonight!"
What is going to be your favorite color next year?
Patterns.  Always patterns. I refuse to listen to Pantone. 
What do you think is going to be the next food fad?
Accessible healthy food for all.  That is the fad that needs to happen.
Do you think time is circular or linear?
I actually think time is divergent.  Sometimes linear, sometimes circular and sometimes splitting off off into multiple lines.
Technology will change culture. In 100 years what do you imagine to be a positive change technology has created?
I imagine and really hoping to it creates more empathy and equality.
What is a resolution you have for the next year?
Next year I want to focus on staying the moment.  There is no time like now and making the most of every moment is really important. And learning to actually produce music that is in my head.
If you were an architect, what would you build?
A library.  One really cool library.
What song sounds like the future to you?
The song hasn't been made yet. Truthfully, I have so many songs in my head that I want to figure out a way to make into sounds to share and maybe one of those will sound like the future.
Any gigs coming up?
I've got a few notable ones.  For this month I'll be dj'ing a undeground event called Odyssey on December 16th and then will be making noise on New Years Eve for Jump Jack at Mississippi Studios.  In January,  I have Space Is The Place on the first Wednesday (with Rob, the creator of this podcast series ), NoFomo on the first Friday, something special with my Bottom Forty crew in Seattle with guests Masha and Allison Swing (of Dig Deeper).  And then, a super duper event coming up in February with two of my favorite djs from Germany but I can't officially announce that one yet.  Stay tuned. I love the fact I can share music I like and get to do it while working with so many dedicated, talented and amazing artists.

I'm a big fan of the art of Tom Sachs
He has an exhibit up in at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco until January 16th that you should totally go see if you're in the area.

If you can't make it to the show, you should at least watch some of the videos


The key to making rad paper snowflakes is the six-point fold technique.
Here's a video tutorial


S1 is a creative art space in Portland Oregon. In their own words they "...strive to provide engaging, relevant, and critical visual art, performance and education programming in ways that are accessible to a diverse population of artists and viewers in and outside the city."

In addition to being the home of Women's Beat League, they are also home to the Synth Library where folks can learn about synths and the access them to make music and art.

Synths are the sounds of the future, so obviously I'm into this.

If you can't make it to the S1 you can check out this web browser modular synthesizer


I did a mix for Acid Camp.
