90’s Hip-Hop Mini Mix – New YouTube Video and Soundcloud Download

Here’s my 90’s “ish” (I know a handful of tracks aren’t from the 90’s) old school Hip-hop mini mix influenced by a set I played a few weeks back. Enjoy!

Below it you can find the Soundcloud link where you can download it too.

New Gear, New Mix, First Gig – I’m back!


It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, which is partly due to me saving up for a new set-up. Gone are the Dell 1750, Vestax Spin and Akai LPD8 running Traktor Pro . I’m now running shiny new Traktor Scratch Pro 2 on a Macbook Pro with a VCI -100 MK II + Kontrol X1 + Audio 4 DJ.

So with my new gear in hand I recently ventured out to my first gig in front of actual human beings. It was my friend’s birthday/BBQ party and I volunteered to play a hip-hop set for a few hours.

I think it went well. I had read horror stories of first gigs going completely wrong. So I did my homework way in advance. Revised my playlist/library about 20 times the week before, brought a back up library and a shit ton of extra cables.

I had originally planned on playing a two hour set, thinking that there might be someone else playing, but that wasn’t the case. My set was over 6 hours, so next time I’ll prepare a warm up set and have a larger song selection,

First Blog entry..

Hmmm, hope this works…

So this is my blog, I thought this would be a great way to share my djing and love for music. I really want to step up my djing a notch this year and feel this is a good way to both achieve and document it.

In the next few weeks i’ll be developing this page, providing links to both my YouTube channel and SoundCloud where you’ll find my latest mixes, videos and adventures.

Much Love
