Happy Birthday, Gramps

My grandfather turned 82 a couple of weeks ago. For his birthday, I took a stab at a continuous mix of music that he’d like. Half of the songs are known-favorites of my dear old Gramps, and the rest are ones that I really wanted to share with him. It was very enjoyable to mix some music that I normally never would have compiled together or even thought to listen to. So thanks, Gramps, happy birthday, and I hope you enjoy!

Two quick mixes for your listening pleasure..

Lately, I’ve been beat-mixing again, prompted by a very irresponsible purchase made around Thanksgiving (see right). I can’t say that I didn’t miss doing this for the last few years.  I’ve also really taken a liking to Drum & Bass music, and have started to build an almost-respectable catalog of it as well.  It’s a little more interesting to beat-mix than Progressive House (shorter tracks, wider variety, ..), and hey, who can argue with 120hz hitting you in the chest at 140db?

Tonight I’ve recorded two 30 minute continuous DJ mixes for you to share and enjoy.  I would like to start playing out again at some point soon, so if you or someone you know has connections at any local venues, please let me know!

Enough about that, on with the ch00ns..
