Steve Gomez, or “Gomie” to his homies, was a DEA agent of Mexican descent in Albuquerque, NM who was killed in the line of duty in the Mojave Desert. Daniel Gomez (no relation), or “Danny Daze” to his homies, is a producer/DJ of Cuban descent from Miami, FL. Steve and Daniel share not only a last name, but also love of deep, dark, underground techno music, as well as photographing drugs on ceilings.
Daniel Avery is the shit-hot DJ/producer of British descent who just dropped his debut LP Drone Logic and whom Plant’s Chris Tarantino (no relation) recently interviewed for The Village Voice. Avery and Daze not only share a first name, but also a love of the same kind of music as the Gomezes do (although Avery is less interested in the aforementioned ceiling drugs).
Daze recently remixed Avery’s ‘Naive Response’ on Erol Alkan’s Phantasy Sound:
Avery in turn invited Daze to guest on his excellent RinseFM radio show. Daze’s bangin mix begins just before the one hour mark:
Sadly, Gomie has been interviewed nowhere and guested on nothing since his murder in September of this year. Happily, Daze’s ‘Down Her’ EP on Plant is still available at Beatport though. Here is the AA side:
