Just another DJ…trying to change the world one mix at a time…
So it’s officially 2011.
I am very excited at the prospect of a whole year of musical discoveries, learning new levels of DJ skillz, and of course working with my clients. Not much to say for this show, it’s not mixed live, but I definitely placed every song where it is, when it is, and how it is. Tonight, I meditated on my year and “our” year (the human race) and intensely focused on my emotional feelings that arise from this particular annual chronological vantage point in life.
I begin the mix process by listening to music from my library, when I hear a song that “feel’s” right to me, I toss it in a crate and keep moving. Once my crate is full of about 60-70 songs, I leave the main library and fine tune the crate into “Prime Cuts” and then I make a crate called “Actual”. The Actual is the final draft of the mix, I play with the order, and make final cuts.
As a DJ, and a music lover, the “feeling” is what it’s all about. It’s like putting a puzzle together, playing Tetris or Jenga, you’ve gotta catch that groove, that balance, and you have to hold out to see the picture until it is complete. But it is worth it in the end.
I don’t have a title for the mix, but if I was gonna give it one, this is what it would be:
“Your level of anger or conviction, is never proof that your argument is valid.” or “The Expan$e”
