since people seem to post their own mixes, let’s try to collect them here in this topic.
Ha! Thanks for making this thread…was planning to make a thread to feature those of us who run our own music blogs (and to encourage others to do so) so that was enough indirect self-promotion to make me hold back on sharing my mixes…been dj’ing for 10+ years but only started to get not-shitty in the past two, so it feels more like I’ve been collecting for over a decade and spinning (satisfactorily) for two years.
And for those curious for a sonic example of the UK dance scene I’m talking about, here’s a couple that are almost all UK records from the past 4-5 years.
first post from me… here’s mix i did for Hong Kong Community Radio recently:
Did another post on this.
Here’s the Mixcloud:
Here’s my take on a “Bass” set. I normally play house and techno so this was a lot of fun.
"Why Do They Shut Me Out of Heaven" is out! You can download it for free on Bandcamp.
Very interesting–in my brief scroll-through–how it seems we’re coming at different types of ‘bass’…or not?
OK, so I decided to spend the $15 (not a small amount for me…doing what you want in life does not pay well) and get a Soundcloud Pro subscription…just makes far more practical sense.
theme for this mix was black hip hop culture for white listeners. i currently live in a town that is 91% white and it can be really frustrating to not have relational points music wise. As a person of mixed ethnicity…i’m not black, i’m Portuguese Indian Chinese Irish and German and was raised in the Bay Area in a very balanced black/hispanic/asian/white community where often times I was a pale skinned minority (the only person in the room perceived as white, if that makes sense). This definitely gave me perspectives lots of folks in Central Oregon don’t have…this mix is my attempt to convey my own white/eurasian digestion and understanding of black hip hop culture (as much as i can as a non black person) to a suuuuuper white audience.
Forgot I actually uploaded to Soundcloud…movin’ on up.
