Over the past ten or so months, I've started DJ'ing again and feel like I've made more improvement as a DJ in that period that I had in the preceding ten years. And the reasons behind that are very personal, but all I can say is that I'm for once in my life feeling confident enough to release some form of musical product--I imagine I'll release my first album of music in my fifties.
And believe me, I'm still figuring out things on my end as this whole process really arose from my realizing I had "standards" as a DJ--boy, did I feel old when I heard that--as the equipment at 8Ball Radio where I host my Ambient Jeep show just wasn't cutting it. Then again, unlike some "community funded" radio stations in the city that are backed by millionaires, these guys are truly DIY so that's where I feel comfortable at...but that doesn't mean I can just record from home! And speaking of Ambient Jeep, click here to hear a 3.5 hour version of the below mix with somewhat different sequencing and a lot, lot more songs (and *cough*only the left channel really pumping out sound*cough*).
But believe me, I would not be posting this, let alone positing it in and of itself if I wasn't somewhat proud of it. And for a guy who basically hates everything he does. That's a pretty great feeling. Track list is below as well because what's the point in trying to hide songs from people? If you love a song, buy it and mix it better than I ever could!
