2013 marks the 10 Year anniversary of my very first mix…I know, its thrilling. But for me it kind of was a big deal to put this mixed compilation of music together with the help of Mike B., better known as Porchlite who I continue to work with. We recorded ‘Leave a Message’ about one year after I purchased my dj set up. This mix will show you exactly where I was coming from when I chose these records and I am glad I can finally share it on such a platform a decade later. The voicemails couldn’t be more cheesy but knowing I had so many brings back a certain nostalgia that you just don’t get these days from a text message, just like the nostalgic feeling digging through records had opposed to scrolling through mp3s. My baby bro made the cut in the first two minutes of the mix..he was 5 then, 15 now. Word to moms too!
This was the start of it all, who I am today and what I play stems from here. Mad love to all the diverse deejays who led the way and broke from sticking to one genre early on. These songs still remain on my FAVORITES list and in this order especially, download the mix here and enjoy!!!
