I love spinning tunes for dancers in Philadelphia. They’re a great bunch, and they’re far more appreciative of my style than they have any right to be. Here’s the mix I played for them earlier this month, recorded live on Traktor DJ for the iPad.
A few notes about this mix:
- Prior to the event, the organizers asked all the DJs to incorporate more variety into their mixes. This inspired me to include a bit of electro-blues, a bit of alt-tango, and a bit of funk mixed in with some of my usual fare.
- There’s a bit less track-blending in this one than in some of my past fusion mixes, which was by design this time around.
- I played the original version of Bloodstream at the end of this mix at the behest of Emilio, one of the masterminds behind DJX and a fine DJ in his own right. He enjoyed the mashup I made but wanted to hear the original.
