random thoughts. music mixes. where to be. what's happenin'. and all that other good good.

So from April 2005 to June 2007 I put together monthly hip hop mixtapes, only missing a couple months due to the holidays and such. This was before my DJing days so nothing was mixed, just one song blended into the other for the most part. Somehow after I started getting more and more into DJing my mixes slowed down. I put one out every few months and haven’t done so for about 8 months at this point. I got more focused on electro for a while and when I would finally put out a mix, DJs would critique every little aspect of it to the point that I didn’t find any fun in it anymore. Sure, I loved making mixes, but was almost afraid to upload them because of all the negative feedback some of my peers were giving me, most of which was just ridiculous hating.

I’ve made almost a mix a month since I uploaded my last one but the only people who have heard them are those who have ridden in my car or the few I burned copies for. For the past 8 months, while my friends have been nagging and nagging (not in a bad way) for a new mix, I finally have realized why I make mixes. I make them so friends like Katie and Liz can rock out to some awesome hip hop music like I do every time I get in my car. I’m not making these mixes for DJs to listen to (although don’t mind those who do ;) ), I’m making them for people to have fun, dance, smile, and enjoy themselves to some new hip hop music.

So I’d like to restart my monthly mixtape series. New hip hop I’ve found through various methods, silly names for the mixes, fun photos of me on the covers, and good stuff for my friends. Of course, I’ll still take any critique that comes my way and will always improve through each mix I make, but the most important part of all of this is having FUN.

Enjoy this mix. Holler.
