Alternative Video
Capturing the A-ha moment

Fill in the blank: You're at the ______ (movies; bookstore; Internet café; trendy restaurant; other) and you hear a song. Not just any song but a GREAT song -- one that slays you and you know would slay your dance floor. Trouble is, you can't place the artist; you didn't catch the title; and now – poof! – that great song (and the great feeling that comes with breaking a great song) is gone forever.

Or is it...

Say hello to Alternative Video, home to some of the greatest songs you've never heard of; and more than a few you'd like to hear again and again.

It's about music discovery! From Indie Dance to Chillwave to everything in between – that's what you can expect each month with Alternative Video. With each release, we'll dig deep to find the musical nuggets that will get your floor moving and keep your hipsters happy. Whether it's on a major label or an independent release from an unsigned band, we'll collect them all and bring you the best of what's next.
- Erik Dennison, programmer, Alternative Video

To celebrate the occasion, we're pleased to offer our POOL subscribers a FREE, no-obligation download of Alternative Video's first edition. You'll find that already waiting for you in your POOL Player. :)

3D Mapping

Next Generation Video
And how to get there...

As a successful businessperson, you want to see the distance between you and the cutting edge get smaller. Trouble is, somebody keeps moving the cutting-edge further away. We're here this month to kick off a mini-series that looks at a few different ways you can close that ever-growing gap...

3D Mapping

In theory, 3D Mapping (aka 3D projection) is any method of mapping three-dimensional points to a two-dimensional plane to create a virtual 3D experience. In practice, 3D mapping can put your show on the map big time. Using this technique, DJs, VJs, and video artists are projecting images, video and motion graphics onto buildings and other surfaces to create the kind of can't-believe-your-eyes experience simply too cool not to go viral.

Ready to see how you can rack up the YouTube hits? Let the mind-blowing begin:

D'Manti - Tonight

Artist Spotlight:
Get to Know D'Manti "Tonight"

Dance-pop artist D'Manti might not be a name you know (yet), but her new Billboard Breakout release, Tonight, is about to change all that.

Born and raised in star-studded Las Vegas, NV, D'Manti couldn't help but be drawn to the spotlight at an early age. Singing, acting, dancing, and songwriting are lifelong passions for her, passions she has brought into sharp focus with her newest release.

"Tonight is a song I wrote driving to Las Vegas," says D'Manti. "It just kind of flew out of me. It's a love song; it's about falling in love; about being present in the moment. I love anything that has to do with love. What I'm most excited about is how people, especially DJs, have been so accepting of Tonight. That support and the support of my amazing team means so much to me. It's exciting!"

We couldn't agree more.

Catch the climb as Tonight rocks Billboard's Dance Chart here...

Master of the Ceremony Success Coach Stacy Zemon says:
Be the Master of the Ceremony

"DJs who devote the time and energy to becoming master entertainers shouldn't be told how to do their job by clients" says DJ Success Coach Stacy Zemon. "Information about their musical preferences and guests, while gratefully accepted and heeded, should compliment a mobile DJ's selections and personality, not supersede it."
