Project Hit Record: Trouble Man

(image: tonypapesh)

I saw Mo's last post and thought the "one and done" approach to mixes might be a cool little project (if nothing else a project to consciously battle the OCD/perfectionism/second guessing instincts that most djs suffer from in varying degrees), so I tried my hand at it. I won't lie, I did it last night, and so even though I'm posting the mix as rendered, no mulligans, no obsessing over set lists, just press record and get going, I did give it a listen before posting (is that cheating?). I'm pretty pleased with the turnout, notwithstanding a few battles I had with some disco tracks that didn't want to stay mixed. I also worked in a track that my boys Recon and Earthrok threw down a few years ago called "Bikini Island" under the Lucha Libre moniker. The hook is in Catalan, so I have no idea what those ladies are saying, except I know it has something to do with Ibiza and it always reminds me of summer.
