An update on my first blog post

Since today is the first anniversary of my blog, I figured that I'd revisit my first blog post. It was on how drugs have affected certain DJs/producers on the gay circuit scene. This is part of what I wrote:

In the past month a couple of events have shaken the world of dance music. DJ Junior Vasquez said that he had recently recovered from a habit of doing crystal meth for five years. Also DJ Julian Marsh said that he would retire from DJing at the end of this summer. Among the reasons he was doing that was because the dance circuit scene was getting too "dark" and drug-infested (Tina in particular) for him to stomach.

Today Julian Marsh works in Fort Lauderdale, Florida as a real estate agent and a mortgage broker. He also does some web design and computer consulting, which was his job prior to DJing. Even though Julian has retired from DJing, he hasn't completely left the business; he's been doing some producing and remixing for a glam band from New York State called the Atomic Swindlers.

As for Junior, he continues to DJ in NYC and other cities, as well as produce and remix various dance acts. He also spins for XM radio. His latest mix CD, Party Groove: White Party Volume 7, was released on Centaur Records back in Janurary.
