Here’s a mix I recorded live at the Brazilian Room in Berkeley on 10-9-11. This one was made up largely of client requests (as to avoid setting off anyone’s “cheese” alarm, I would not play songs like “Dancing Queen” unless requested by my clients – in this case, my client did request that particular tune plus a few other songs of a similar nature which are included in the mix), and was aimed at a mixed age crowd – half 60 somethings, and half twenty and thirty year old guests. Essentially, this is a dance set aimed at pleasing everyone in attendance, regardless of age range. This is a surely a more conservative mix than some of my others, but is a good representation of a crowd pleasing mix of very mainstream, accessible music. While a vast majority of this mix is beat-matched, its worth noting that I did drop a few songs in without mixing them – I was trying to get a LOT of requests into a short 1 hour set, and didn’t have the time to work the tempo up or down seamlessly in a few spots.
In any case, some of my potential clients are worried that a mix-style DJ can’t play this style of music, and of course, that simply isn’t true. Take a listen and I’m sure you will agree. 😉
