APR 2014
so i dj'd my second ever wedding recently for the nicest couple you'd ever meet (much love m&k!). standard practice for these things is to meet with the couple & get a list of songs for their day including the ones they *must* hear.
their list was fun, mainly 90's R&B jams so decided to play around with their tunes and recorded it for them as a remembrance.
this is that mix.​​​​​​​
SEP 2005
bootlegs & mashups were (unfortunately) everywhere in the early-mid 00's so i decided to make a mix doing my own.
all of the blends here were acapellas & instrumentals mixed live on turntables. no serato. no ableton. no computer.
anyhow, some good shit here. i even play the stones at the end. random. (i do love that tune tho..​​​​​​​
got to play 100% DILLA in a proper sound system tonight, so recorded it.. beer mixes & all!
