This was recorded at the first Hangout Festival in 2010. An incredible experience located on the white sands of Gulf Shores, Alabama. The show was a late night electronic experiment to benefit the oil spill clean up. I was elated to hear that Matisyahu expressed interest in making an appearance. He sat in with me a few years back in Aspen so I kind of knew what to expect. His sound guy muscled his way through to the console and hooked up a vocal effect processor. He and Matisyahu had obviously been working together awhile as the two seamlessly glided through dub style vocal delays and reverbs that were placed at just the right times. There where a few moments in this tune where I felt the stars where aligned, and everything was right where it was supposed to be. A lot had to do with the big ass fan that silently churned overhead keeping everything cool, physically and mentally. After this tune was complete, it took at least a song to get back on track. It was somewhat a spiritual experience in the sense of conjuring spirits with the voice and effects of Matisyahu.
Recorded Live by Lou Gosain.
Please enjoy, Keller.

Lizards by Phish & Feels So Good by Chuck Mangione. Recorded at Lucky Joe’s in Ft. Collins, Colorado on 10/15/97 by my old buddy Court Sheffield on his marantz high-end cassette deck. I was able to retrieve this track by way of Scott Mckenzi. Scott surprised me with a hard drive containing a MASSIVE amount of my live shows dating back to ‘94. A lot of the stuff is audience, microphone recording, which is an interesting perspective. This recording is straight off of my powered mixer. I'm not positive, but there might be a slight bit of tape drag involved but...maybe not. Thanks to Court Sheffield for recording the show and to Scott Mckenzi for the MASSIVE amount of time he spent compiling this hard drive. Thanks to Phish and Chuck Mangione for writing songs that go great together.

127 on the 808 was recorded at Maymont Park on May 13th, 2010. It is intended to be a dance song. One you dance to. Naked. On a golf course. In the middle of the night. Way back on the other side of the course away from the club house where no one can hear your subwoofers or see your gyrating flesh as you dance your improvised, interpretive dance that tells a story with different characters, plot lines, tragedies, and ultimately closes with a happy ending. Not the dirty kind of Nevada brothel/massage parlor happy ending, but the one where the good guy gets the girl and the bad guy goes to jail and the world is transformed into a bright beautiful dream with flowers, water falls, bubbles, and cloud beds. Please Enjoy
