recorded a new s3quence mix. sort of a mix with some left field stuff in here. i keep going back to hip hop, i guess it’s just what’s in my head these days. but i threw in some acid jazz and indie electronic/idm-type stuff, too. there’s also some scratching, but only some of it is actually me. anyway, it was fun, so i hope you can listen to it without cringing.
this time i added album art. i saw this taking the dog for a walk, looked sort of like the skateboard was embedded in the ground like after a tornado when there are 2x4s shoved through trees.

it’s been a while since i posted or did one of these and i tweeted probably over a week ago that i wanted to do a hip-hop mix next time around, so i got around to doing it. it’s longer by far than the others, and it only has a few minor effups (well, one glaring one which was a result of lack of forethought — but hey, it’s hard to think on the spot when you’re mixing and juggling two kids chasing each other around and falling off the couch). otherwise, i’m pretty happy with this mix. it had a lot of my favorite hip-hop tracks from the uk, the us, and, thanks to dj krush, japan.

i had the opportunity last night to record another live mix. i played with the cool effects less this time but that was partially because there was a cat hiding/trapped in the kids’ bedroom while they were a sleep trying to get out. here it is:

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.
