i’ve been listening to mike skinner’s (of the streets) “skinmixes.” they’ve reminded me what i loved about spinning records; creating moods and the flow of one song to the next, exposing music i love, and throwing some oddball stuff in for good measure. skinner seems to have a similar approach, which is why i dig his mixes so much.
there’s a trend that’s been going on for a few years with dj’s and mc’s (among, i’m sure, countless others) posting mixtapes on the web. it’s a thing. i decided there’s not much stopping me (other than time) from putting my own mixes out there, especially since i have this awesome virtual dj software that is just collecting dust.
so here’s my first mix. it’s short, and i spent a lot of the time playing with buttons. but this is sort of a trial run anyway. my only real goal was to see if i actually could make Dali’s Car mix with the “Holding Out for a Hero” by Frou Frou.[audio:s3quence-001.mp3]
