I Love Her Crazy Ways (V-Day DJ Mix)

Posted in music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 14, 2011 by blogstoryshort

I’ve been DJing now for almost ten years yet I’ve only released a handful of DJ mixes to the general public.  Why?  I don’t know but I’m making a vow to change that this year.

This new mix has some guidelines that I placed on myself to help me create something unique.  First, it’s ONLY vinyl 45s and only ones that I have purchased in the last six months.  These records were acquired while digging/shopping in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago and Indianapolis, at private sales, record conventions and record stores.  Some internet shopping was also  included and the prices ranged from .25 cents to over $30 dollars for a single 45.  As you can see, there are A LOT of hours, miles, dollars and emotions poured out in this mix.  I tend to focus on allowing the songs to play out and fully communicate the story they were meant to tell.

So here is my new mix, loving made for all you ladies, showing as many angles, styles and genres to celebrate all of your unique and ‘crazy’ ways.  Where would I be without the loves of my life…..where would anyone be without love in their life!  Haha, hope you enjoy it and stayed tuned for another one, featuring more jazz and funk.  As always, please feel free to let me know what you think of the post/mix.  Gracias.
