Monday Mixtape Classic House Music

For this Monday Mixtape I’m going back to one of my favorite music eras..Classic House Music of the 80’s and early 90’s. Remember the hankerchief in the back pocket? It was part of the outfit but you still needed it to wipe up the sweat! When everyone would take a turn in the circle and work their best moves? I sure do! I miss those days at the Sound Factory, Tunnel and the Clubhouse. This is my first time mixing house so I hope you’ll be gentle in the comments…Every day is a step toward perfection!

Please vote for my man Fave of the Friday Favecast on the Black Weblog Awards!

    10. Hey Diva.

      You asked for feedback, I think, but even if you didn’t, I’m gonna offer some.

      The selections are right on, but–and I don’t know if you are using vinyl or digital media–but the phrasing is off. These days, djs don’t do phrasing, but when mixing house, it’s essential.

      I think digital mixing discourages thinking out the mix.

      You making me wanna hook my joints up and spin…
