Mix:30 – About That Time or as I’m lazily calling it ‘ATT’ is half way home. 3 mixes or about a half hour’s worth of tunage is ready to go. Don’t want to jinx myself but since I’m ahead of schedule I’ll have some more time to design the cover art. However, if you’re an inspiring designer [or even a good one 😉 ] I’ll gladly accept your assistance.
So far on the last 2 mixes I finalized I’ve got a little Dev, LMFAO, YC, Ludacris, Kat Deluna, Kanye, Twista, Rick Ross, and more. So far it’s looking like a fun one.
The intro/1st mix of the Mix:30 – ATT mixtape is complete. Has a little bit of everything. A little kid talking smack, Dorrough, Jay-Z, DMX, Minaj, MIA, Mos Def and more. Don’t worry, they’ll be some randomness sprinkled in.
It’s not quite Detox/Chinese Democracy level procrastination, or buzz for that matter, but Mix:30 Volume 1 – ‘About That Time’ is dropping 2.12.12 and my Jackson’s inspired mixtape ‘Too Many Jacksons’ drops 3.11/3.11 Day. Check back on here and DJStylee.com for details. Here’s a preview of ‘Too Many Jacksons’:

While activating some of my playlists on Spotify I noticed my Top Artists and Tracks lists look pretty dope. Now if I could only play some of this in the clubs without most of the club dying down or demanding I go back to mainstream music or having to hear the dreaded ‘music I can dance to’ line. I’m not going to lie though, I do sneak some of this in at the beginning and end of the night when I DJ. I even rock t-shirts of some of these artists when I spin to not only let people know I listen to good music but as ammo when overzealous club peeps come up to the booth asking for ‘real music’.
Anyways if you’re on Spotify and I’m friends with you check out some of my playlists, especially the ones I listen to while at the office for my day job. If you’re not Facebook friends with me go ahead and check out my Fan Page and I’ll shoot over some tracks.
