“The Lost Art Experience”.. as told by Nikki D!!
Good morning TLA family and friends ! My name is Nicole Dodman, aka Nikki D having been dubbed by my loved ones 😉 …
A little over two years ago a good friend of mine TJ Fonik told me about this amazing DJ by the name of Natural Nate from Colorado. TJ recommended his great live internet show with a chat room called The Lost Art. I tuned in and Natural Nate was there live on webcam mixing vinyl and doing tricks old school style bringing straight goodness live for all to see, hear and enjoy!
I was grateful, I was impressed, I was humbled…
Here was this amazing man giving his heart and soul spinning his vinyl live for all of us lucky viewers to enjoy. Chatting with us, making us feel like family. That day changed how I looked at life. The music moved me. The giving from his soul with such purity inspired me. All of us in the chat were moved by the passion we saw and heard. Filled with gratitude, lucky to be a part of something special. When we took breaks due to life challenges and then came back, The Lost Art was there. Welcoming us always with open arms and a vibe as if we never left.
The energy back then was as awesome as it is today. A family vibe.
There is always pure, good people coming together from all over the world. Getting together and listening to the wonderful sounds from talented, giving artists all while getting to know each other and many making long, lasting friendships.
Fast forward to today and here I am blogging for all of you.
This has all taken me by wonderful surprise and I am grateful and thankful to be a part of this amazing group of people. The Lost Art has given me and so many others hope and belief that every day we can accomplish great things together in great ways. The Lost Art team supports each other in life and in dreams. We pick each other up when we are down. We push each other to keep striving for our goals. Everyone is welcome. Join us and be a part of The Lost Art experience.

The Lost Art has set out to preserve the pitch. To keep the performance art of the disc jockey pure and clean. To insure that this industry stay true to the art form the way it has been taught and passed down. Two turntables, a mixer and a mike. Technology is ever changing and while some may use CD’s instead of vinyl, one thing at The Lost Art that will never change is the mixing is real!
