After spending most of last year heavily involved in other projects, I suppose we are officially on a break. As I write this, I'm about to get together with a new crew and start working on a brand new musical project, this time just for fun. I also plan to release many of the tracks that were only ever in live sets, and will play a skylab2000 show now and then. Stay tuned!
Just did a commercial for a big cosmetics company, Orly. Lately I've also been working on some hardware designs for musical intruments and effects, so the music site doesn't get updated as much as it had been. Please email me if you have any questions.
MARCH 6th 2011:
The website finally got an update with a new look and some new colors. Your comments on the new design are very welcome, or please tell me if you find any errors.
FEBRUARY 4th 2011:
Too many distractions lately, so the site is in need of updating.. Soon! Denver and WI shows planned for the next few months.
JUNE 23rd 2010:
We've changed the look of the site a little bit, but still have some work to go. Also just added audio of an interview and a DJ set from Chemical Frequency Radio from last week. Download it or stream it on the audio page.
APRIL 10th 2010:
A few weeks ago I did a remix of the classic Supertramp song "Logical", for the multiple Grammy winning artist Ford. We've gotten great reactions from this already, so I expect very big things. It's being mastered now in some fancy east coast mastering lab, look out for it very soon. It will get a lot of play at parties and at clubs.

MAR 2nd 2002:
I was due to play in southern IL this past weekend. We got to Chicago where I had to change planes and the connecting flight got canceled due to snow! Shit. That was bad, but I was just going to rent a car and drive the five hours thru the snow to make the show. I've never missed a show before. So, I got a rental car arranged, and went to get my bags. Now all the luggage was still out on the runway and no bags were being brought in. A hundred fifty flights were canceled so it was a mess there. They finally decided to get select bags for people that really needed them so they went looking for mine. "Can't fine em". Ok, I asked for them to keep looking and I'd come back in a few mins. After four tries over 6 hours, they finally found them. It was a 5 hour drive and it was now midnight. The event ended at 3am, so there was just not enough time to make it. Before Sept 11th, I was allowed two carry ons, so could take all the essential gear on the flight. Now I am limited to only one, so I had to check some vital stuff. Shame, but it's a new world. Amazing what ripple effects that had.. So, anyway, I spent the night in an airport hotel and then flew home. :( What a waste of to two days. We are going to try and reschedule in the next few months. Apologies to everyone who was affected. I tried my best. In much better news, we just back from Moscow and Samara, to play for the Russians. Quite an adventure. It was pretty amazing and very different from what I expected. The clubs were beautiful and totally went off!! Great people, and super cute girls everywhere. We were treated really well, and they seemed to really appreciate music from the UK and US. We ate lots of great food, went to tons of good clubs and restaurants, and drank plenty of delicious vodka while appreciating the views. Recommended.
JAN 26th 2002:
Please have a look at this month's BPM Culture Magazine. Page 116. There's a small thing about skylab2000. Info on what I do and how to do it live. More exciting news - Russia shows finally are booked! After weeks of working on it, I'm happy to announce that we are off to do a couple of shows in Samara and Moscow. It'll be cold but worth it for an amazing experience. The vodka should keep us warm...

MORE APRIL NEWS:
Off to Puerto Rico tonight for a show and then a quick vacation. Finally!
IMPORTANT APRIL NEW FLASH!!!!:
Some quick bad news - We were initially booked to play a show, April 7th, in Columbus Ohio, but the promoter didn't meet his obligations, and we had to cancel at the last minute. Massive apologies to anyone who was there expecting to see skylab2000 perform. Canceling a performance is not something I was happy to be forced to do, and I sincerely apologize to anyone who came out to see us.
I've been a bit of a slacker about keeping up on the news here. Today's biggest news is that we just got confirmed for a party in a cave in Puerto Rico. Very cool lineup. Mar y sol! Lotsa shows this month and a few new tunes to try out live.
December will be spent in the studio working on some new stuff, remixing and rewriting songs, and changing a bit of gear. We've started booking shows for the new year and have some great parties in the works. There's also a new interview with skylab2000 on a French Canadian web site, based up in Montreal. Click on "Entrevue" - French for interview - on Montreal groove.com
We have brand new skylab2000 t-shirts, sweat shirts, girls shirts! Check em out here!
skylab2000 official statement:
'Due to multiple issues securing a location outside of the city, the "its a party rev" event in Detroit on Saturday Aug 26th was moved to the "chop shop" location. There are minimum production, gear and personal safety standards that could not be met at this location. For these reasons, skylab2000 did not perform at this event. In the six years we have been playing, we have never chosen to not perform at an event, but now feel certain minimum standards must be upheld. Apologies to anyone who expected to see skylab2000 perform on Saturday.'
We're playing every weekend. Fun, but tiring! I'm happy to report that we have the NUMBER ONE and NUMBER FOUR song on MP3.COM overall! We have five songs total right now in the top 40 there, and 7 in the electronic top 40 so check it out! Look at the skylab2000 mp3.com page in the next few days as we have uploaded a few more classic tracks. Also, check out the live events page as there's some wicked festivals and parties coming up! Florida, New York and Atlanta all have some great parties to look forward to! Lastly, skylab2000 t-shirts are now available! We sell em at our cost and don't make a penny on em. Pretty cool. Check em out from the link from our main page or click here. JUNE 2000:

There's a brand new skylab2000 single in the works, which is a crazy acid trance journey. It's still untitled but we have been playing it live with great response. We plan to have a remix on the back, and are talking to a very special DJ about doing it. Stayed tuned for the announcement. Next week we are off to play some shows in Asia. It's the first trip to play in Asia for us, so we are quite excited. Hong Kong on the 18th! If any of you will be there by chance, write me for guest list info.

The B side is a great goa/trance remix by DJ Doran. We expect test presses by late Sept/October.
