Zurkonic Mixes

An ever-expanding collection of my DJ'ing exploits, missteps, and moments of transcendence. 

I've been DJ'ing for almost a decade. But I've never really recorded mixes that I've been happy with or felt very confident in my abilities, fearing that I would resign myself to being a "selector" who picks sick tracks when I longed to be more involved with my beloved records, playing and mixing and blending them in all kinds of weird ways (no shade to selectors, just not my path). And when you have a friend who you lost who was exceptionally talented at mixing, well....let's just say I didn't think I'd be confident enough to do this for plenty of years to come. Of course, I am still very much a beginner in many way--albeit with solid tracks--so there are a few choppy blends, some rough volume adjustments, and other small but noticeable (especially to me) mistakes that I'm also seeing less of, so that's something.

All the below mixes were recorded using my vinyl collection, two Technics S-1200 turntables, and a basic Numark mixer that is recorded to a TASCAM digital recorder. There are no post-recording edits outside of cutting the mix into sections to make each one a bit less sprawling. Enjoy and please send any DJ inquiries to zurkonic at gmail dot com. Peace and love!

Note: This was recorded with the estimable DeeJay Count Zer0 at his crib in Queens, NY the evening of 6/3/17 with us going B2B for 2+ hours. It was hella fun. Tracklist below!
