Ecstasy - DJ Set

This DJ set was an episode was originally an episode from a deep house music podcast I produced on a monthly basis called, The Underground Sound of NYC.


I wrote this while on a business trip in Germany for the summer of 2001.

Last night I had the television on the only channel I could understand and enjoy.


I saw a music video that tapped direct into a longing that I’ve had in my heart for years but could never pin down.


Self Portrait 2010Eduardo Colon Self Portrait July 2010

It’s 5:37 a.m., Monday morning, September 20, 2010.

I've just returned from dropping my nephew off at work. Before returning home, I stopped at a convenience store and picked up bread, milk, and other items I’ll need to prepare breakfast for my family in a few hour’s time. Then I will begin my day, in earnest, running errands, tending to tasks, so on and so forth. I know I have an unassuming and plain appearance.

I look like any other man of my age, of my background, and no one around me would know I am a man on fire, in the mind, in the spirit, in the heart, in the soul.

I burn in continual ecstasy.

The Desert Road of Night

This is my first memory.

I’m three years old and I’m in the arms of a fireman, being carried out of a burning building, in the darkness of early morning.


I've driven over many desolate roads winding through ghost towns and vast empty space.
