Hello world. My name is Edwin Morales also known as DJ Konsept, and this is my blog.
This is my first blog and I’m pretty damn excited about it.
In this blog I plan to explore two of my biggest loves: food and music. There are far too many ideas in my head and now I have an outlet for them.
As a DJ, producer and promoter I live and breathe music every day. I also come from a family of musicians, so music has always been a part of my life.
As for food, well, we all have to eat and who doesn’t enjoy a good meal? It wasn’t until about 4 years ago that I started to really explore food. Cooking, learning the history of foods, pairing meals with wines, discovering new restaurants and cuisine, seeing the way restaurants work etc.
Over these last 4 years I’ve noticed a few things. While attempting to teach myself to cook, I’ve noticed that the music I listen to sometimes influences the way I cook…the passion I put into the dish I’m preparing. I’ve also noticed how easily my experience at a restaurant can be either heightened or diminished according to the music.
I started to really think about the relationship between food and music, wondering the influence one may have on the other…..and how many other people out there are wondering the same thing?
I plan to further explore these (amongst other) things and share what I find on this blog.
My plan is to share as much as I can with you. It’s pretty ambitious, but I plan to post my DJ mixes, remixes and original tracks. I’m gonna post download links to MP3’s for music I love, music from friends and just general music I feel should be heard. I’ll also be posting recipes I love, recipes I’ve created and recipes submitted. I also plan on doing a series of interviews with people who’s lives are influenced by both music and food. Producers, chefs, DJ’s, restaurant owners, club owners etc.
For now, updates will happen when they happen. I may set a certain schedule as I get a better hang of how to do this, but just check back from time to time to see what’s new.
I’m not a very good writer nor do I claim to know all that there is to know about food and music, but one thing I can guarantee you is that I’m passionate and I hope that this blog will reflect that.
Thank you for your support and check back soon for the first entry.
