New Mix up on Mixcloud!
As many of you might already know, I DJ in addition to blogging. It's something I've really fallen in love with over the course of this year, and am pursuing more and more seriously as time passes. I still have so much to learn, and so many genres to become more familiar with, and I look forward to practicing! Because I don't produce any of my own music yet, the best way to challenge myself is work on my mixing whenever I can. This will help my skills while playing live. I figured the best way to showcase what I'm currently capable of, and look back on to see how I've progressed, is to record a "live" mix as I craft it. This simply means I mix at home, and record as I play, without any editing afterwards. I don't even have any audio editing programs, so you can bet I'm not lying!
I've been practicing with a selection of songs that really have caught my attention since I started DJing, or that I have recently fallen in love with. They also feel warm and inviting, which is much needed as STL starts falling deeper into winter (except today's weather is fabulous - mad shouts to Mother Nature!). I finally felt okay enough with a take I did on the mix last night to post it up for my friends to hear. I also hope to maybe find some new gigs by releasing mixes here and there.
I would REALLY appreciate it if you could check it out! At least just put it on in the background while you're making dinner, or getting ready to go out tonight, right? Click on the link below to listen! Thanks, everyone!
