Santa Cruz isn’t exactly known for its hopping electronic scene, but that’s something that local DJ Bjorn Berg hopes to change. Before coming back to Santa Cruz recently, Berg was honing his DJ skills all over the world, spinning mostly underground house electronic tracks.

Eve of Eden

Eve of Eden

Natural State, Eve of Eden’s forthcoming album, is a polished Americana-pop record that seems way beyond anything you’d expect from a band at the local level. In fact, leader Aliza Hava has been working on this record for a couple of years with three Grammy-winning producers (Toby Wright, Stephen George, Ron Zabrocki), a feat she managed after having released a solid solo record a decade ago, and getting to know folks in the industry ever since.

Shady Groove

Pyromids

Pyromids

The debut EP from Pyromids, Out In Time Past, contains the cover image of a trio of water skiers in a triangle formation—all with their heads on fire. The obvious question is: Does this have something to do with the odd spelling of the band’s name?

Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey

Monday, Feb. 8, is Aquarius new moon (19 degrees) and Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey (an imaginative, intelligent and vigilant creature). Monkey is bright, quick, lively, quite naughty, clever, inquiring, sensible, and reliable. Monkey loves to help others. Often they are teachers, writers and linguists. They are very talented, like renaissance people. Leonardo Da Vinci was born in the year of Monkey. Monkey contains metal (relation to gold) and water (wisdom, danger). 2016 will be a year of finances. For a return on one’s money, invest in monkey’s ideas. Metal is related to wind (change). Therefore events in 2016 will change very quickly. We must ponder with care before making financial, business and relationship changes. Fortune’s path may not be smooth in 2016. Finances and business as usual will be challenged. Although we develop practical goals, the outcomes are different than hoped for. We must be cautious with investments and business partnership. It is most important to cultivate a balanced and harmonious daily life, seeking ways to release tension, pressure and stress to improve health and calmness. Monkey is lively, flexible, quick-witted, and versatile. Their gentle, honest, enchanting yet resourceful nature results often in everlasting love. Monkeys are freedom loving. Without freedom, Monkey becomes dull, sad and very unhappy. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770 - 476 BC), the Chinese official title of Marquis (noble person) was pronounced ‘Hou,’ the same as the pronunciation of ‘monkey’ in Chinese. Monkey was thereby bestowed with auspicious (favorable, fortunate) meaning. Monkey years are: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.
