This week’s mix is some of the best of Timberland. Timberland is one of the best R&B producers I know. Yeah, I know he does rap too but his hiphop beats always appeals to these R&B ears of mine. He has the ability to make the hardest MCs sound danceable! Timberland is a genius. His beats always leave you slightly off kilter, slightly off beat with enough break for grinding. Yeah…I spent a lot of time grinding to Tim. Don’t let the lights go dim on some Aaliyah…don’t let the lights go dim and I owed somebody like Nas…Enough reminiscing…
As usual you may hear a few mistakes…I do this in one take with a little practice time to set up mix points and try out the beatmatching. In case you are wondering why I don’t spend more time on my “craft”..it’s because a Diva has a HUSBAND, a set of twins who are honor roll students and attending private school, I’m in Graduate School now..pursuing my Ph.D. in English Literature..plus I have a lot of friends…social media peeps included and all of this consumes my time. Oh and did I mention I’m a full time manager at a Top Graduate School? Yeah..A Diva is busy…
That said…I tried to camouflage any really bad mix points…I am really proud of some blends…Like 1&2, 2&3, 6&7, 8&9, 14&15, and some more…As said in class…I have a really good ear for beatmixing on turntables..and a talent for playlist selection… so please…enough comments on my beatmixing skills….
Enjoy it or click off.
I do this “every week”…I give you a new theme every week…I put a lot of time in choosing a good playlist to go along with my concept…I make my own coverart every week and I’m no artist! I’m really tired of the “Oh you didn’t do this right” and “you didn’t scratch..blah blah blah” comments.
I never promised you a rose garden.
I say all that to say…this is my hobby…and I enjoy it…I really do. Eventually I will purchase more equipment..I went to the Scratch Academy and got that Certificate…so please believe…I KNOW how to scratch!..Every week my mixes get better and every week I birth more music, which gets me back and forth to work and gives some folks pleasure.
I hope YOU enjoy it!
