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 schedule of DJ slots since my very first experience has grown to being almost 100 percent full ! All genres of music in our scene from some of the most wonderful, caring, giving, talented real people across the lands. I will be doing a spotlight blog on each and every one of these good people. I look forward to writing about them all. Each one brings something special to the decks. They are giving their all to preserve the pitch ! Lets remember the people who work behind the scenes to ensure that quality is brought to the viewer every day. I will spotlight them as well. We are a team. We are a family. We are The Lost Art.

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!

No pre programming. No pressing a button to match beats. Here at The Lost Art you will find every DJ doing his or her thing from the truest place of the art form.  The Lost Art has taken the mission of preserving the pitch to a whole new level.  Locally, internationally and globally we are open to every genre of music in our scene !  Our mission is to stay open to all ideas and come together as a whole to create beauty in the form of art with good people. Music, clothing, and art work are just a few of things The Lost Art is passionate about and working on daily to bring to you.  All while keeping it pure by preserving the pitch!

The Lost Art Events are quickly becoming known world wide !  Attendees are loving the events as they get to experience the art of the true disc jockey live and in person! Almost all the events are now being broadcasted live on our internet website for all of the world to watch and enjoy!

If you can’t be there in the flesh we are bringing it to you !

We have been asked several times... 'Where can we pre-order your new record?' ( Click here to pre-order ) We could not be more than excited! We have been talking about pressing more records and we finally have a reliable source for pre-sales and the record purchase. Juno has accepted us for this release and also future record releases. This is absolutely amazing! I cannot thank James Boggs with Hoodwink Records / Carocell music enough, for his extremely hard work to make all of this a dream come true. We are truly honored to work with some of the best mastering professionals, record pressing company, publishing companies, and individuals, in the world. We really took our time to find the right companies to do these projects and really hope to keep pressing more in the near future. We are very humbled to seriously have this once in a lifetime opportunity.

“Notes To Jiggabot” has been a compilation of songs that were dedicated to the Lovely Jiggabot by DJ Natural NateⓇ. These are love letters (Songs) to saying how much he loves Jiggabot and to say the words that are sometime hard to say out loud. All of the songs on this album have had many supporters and sponsors. We have to give a very special shoutout to www.the-lost-art.com, Frajile Recordings, 77Deuce, Electro Echelon, ONE7AUDIO, Hoodwink Records and Carocell music for believing in this music with top charting results. We would not be here without all of you. Special Thanks goes to all the party goers and old school heads that have throughout the years, brought us all support and inspiration! A huge shout out to all radio stations worldwide who have helped with promotional play. Let the labels' hearts and souls know without a shadow of doubt, that the efforts have not been in vain. A massive thanks to the home team and the most amazing people who have been pushing The-Lost-Art since day one! We love you and dedicate this project to each and every one of you who hold this close. Last but not least, this is dedicated to all our friends, families and DJs worldwide who continue to live through vinyl. You know who you are. Blessings! James B Boggs

If one believes or not in fairy tales, I say to them... Don't think too long. Each and everyday Love can be captured. If not for a moment Love can be held for a lifetime. "The notes to Jiggabot" are the prime example of how our myths & legends stand that inevitable test of time. The world deserves to know that "Fairy Tale" love stories are real. Within the grooves of this EP one can hear & feel that every bit of such a notion is True. James B Boggs
