So here it is….My last mix of the year. I have to tell the truth..I’m not sorry to see 2009 go..
Here are my favorite tracks of 2009. Some hip hop..some R&B..a lot of Diva…I even provided my commentary!
Have a blessed and safe New Year and see you on the other side of 10 🙂
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…
Mellow May – This mix was requested by my best friend Tutu. Yeah she’s my best friend. Divaliscious is my sister and Tutu is my best friend. She requested this mix for her b’day back in April and although I was still going to class at Scratch, I put this together for her. I used some of songs I was listening to in April and may…with some of the songs i used for my final at the Scratch Academy…with some of the songs I heard during Tutu’s birthday weekend…
My girl Golden aka Miss Jo_Ladie made a request last week for some workout music! Now me and her go way back…back to where we didn’t speak but moved around in the same blog circles (back when I was a personal blogger lol) Since arriving on Twitter and especially since my return back to NY…it seems we have gotten closer and that’s a good thing because I would never have know what a talented and sweet person she is. I went all over the place with this mix…playing some of my recent favorites like DJ Webstar and Lady Gaga…I also took it back to the oldschool..because…well because that what I do baby!
As with the Back To School/Tee Radio Show…I had to remix November Swerve. More R&B..less rap…all groovy! I have Beyonce, Busta rhymes, N.O.R.E, Chris Brown, Fabolous, Faith Evans, Jadakiss, Yung Juggz, and more!
This week’s Monday Mixtape is showcasing some new music as well as some new artists! We have Yung Juggz, Nina B, Kahlee and Chris DeShield. Also some new tracks by Q-Tip, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Nina Sky, Ludachris and Busta Ryhmes!
Hey Everybody…It’s Dj Diva and I’m back from vacation with a new mix called “Back to School”! It’s full of songs I see the kids stop drop and lock to in the morning plus some brand new hits! Artists like Ron Brownz, Jadakiss, Lil’ Wayne…I still managed to keep it R&B! …
If you like this mix..maybe you’ll like these! New Video: Ne-Yo – A Millie (Remix) (Feat. Bangladesh)
Make sure to vote for me for Best Podcaster on the Black Weblog Awards. Now I’ve been called conceited my whole life…I like to think of it as confidence…or a “certain” swagger which is the name of this Monday Mixtape by Your Mixtress – DJ Diva !
It’s time for the Monday Mixtape! Early even…
This week’s mix is entitled April Rain. It’s a bimonthly compilation of the tracks that I’m digging from March and April. I would love to do this once a month, but what’s being released isn’t the best stuff I’ve heard. So I put together the best I could find (in my opinion of course).
