I am a resident Dj at Austin Texas’ Elysium Nightclub. I like to spin retro, oldschool EBM, synthpop, industrial, goth, terrorbanana, and futuremelon but I do not like to be pigeonholed. If it’s good I will make it work. This is my 16th year as a Dj and have had a permanent residency for 14 of those years. I went all digital with my personal setup about a year ago and use Traktor, Ableton Live, and Virtual Dj in combination with Pioneer CD players and Korg pads for midi control. I am half of Austin’s Team Ramrod and half of the Ego Twins as well. I was one of the resident Djs for the legendary Atomic Cafe and the bulk of my learning was handed down to me from Billboard Dj Randall Goodwin of Scottsdale Arizona.

PS, people generally do not tend to get my sense of humor and I offend others inadvertently quite often.

Submission: a new mix by Edminister

It’s been an awful long time since I have made a Dj mix. This one is named Submission, words have so many meanings, this one is actually a submission to Dj Convergence 23 in Dallas this coming spring. As such I am not posting the track list until after the powers that be have made […]

Edminister’s top 5 albums of 2015…

I was hoping for more to post but as far as albums go there were very few that were solid all around this year, a lot of great single tracks but as far as cohesive albums it was pretty much a wasteland. First up are honorable mentions, Beborn Beton released an album after about a […]

Album Review: Mr.Kitty – Fragments

Mr.Kitty – Fragments Fragments, the upcoming fifth album from Austin Texas based Mr.Kitty is another densely layered work that is haunting in it’s simplicity yet the gravity of words and sound tends to immerse the listener so completely that time seems to stretch endlessly. The track order seems chosen to transition from what is almost […]

Edminister Dj Set at Convergence XXI Hollywood

Despite a recent life threatening surgery I made it to Convergence in Hollywood this year and Djed while on some high octane painkillers. This is a pretty fair recreation of that set as I am still recovering from surgery and still having to take painkillers unfortunately. I had a killer time and would report more […]

Hiding by Dj Edminister

It’s been some time since my last post. I have been hiding out. A lot of things have happened and it’s kept me from doing more here but I figured now would be as good a time as any to break the silence.Tonight’s mix was recorded in one take on my new mobile set up […]

Dj Edminister: Care Less

It’s been some time since I posted a mix. This is basically what I have been listening to lately. It’s mostly new stuff but I did Dj a few #throwback nights recently so some older tracks are here as well. I must apologize for not keeping these podcasts coming more regularly, a flood in my […]

Mr.Kitty – Death/Existence/Life

I have been struggling with this review as I have managed to get three albums and a live show out of this artist in a matter of weeks. I have written the review a few times with different approaches and all to no avail. I suppose the bottom line is that it is excellent and […]

Dj Edminister live set at Haven 1-11-2014

This is my latest live Dj set at Haven – Elysium in Austin Texas Unfortunately the setup there for recording also records what i am listening to in my headphones so you might hear a few things that seem out of place but not to worry, it’s quick and doesn’t happen often, give it a […]
