This Monday Mixtape is all about my birthday idol Mariah Carey. We all share a birthday with someone…and I do with Mariah! Mariah Carey has been an idol of mine for long time. We share the same birthday and although she is 4 years older than me..she has always provided me with the inspiration to follow my dreams.
This mixtape is a step out of the box. Jimi Izrael contacted me and requested that I do a mixtape for the release of his new book “The Denzel Principle”.
This was a new experience for me..I took his selected readings…read by the Dizzle himself and laid them over popular instrumentals. I took some of the most recent R&B and hip hop songs and placed them between the tracks.
Call me psychic..but on the BART2009 I battled with Butta at Soulbounce with my prediction that Beyonce was gonna take a break. You should listen to that podcast. So Beyonce is taking a 6 month break. Whether it’s gonna be to have a baby or to reinvent her style…either way I’m happy for her! Full […]
Hey everybody! This mix of new songs is real New York heavy. It could be from the fact that we moved again in Harlem. Really the heart of Harlem this time. I love New York. The feel of the artists..the pounding of the beats. I could see myself having a Lil Mama moment during Jay-Z’s […]
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…
Hey Everybody! I had more requests for the 90’s so this time I went mid late 90’s. Full of the bouncy R&B joints and since I spent the weekend with hubby, I threw in a few joints for him too!
I have been dying to do a Beyonce mix so this week I went in! Her new album comes out tomorrow and since I love picking singles off a new album, this weeks Monday Mixtape is compilation of my favorite Beyonce tracks mixed in with her new songs from the “I am…Sasha Fierce” album.
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 !
Welcome to another Monday Mixtape! The early millennium was a fun time for me. Also a very trying time…full of deceit and it just so happens that the music reflects my moods. I have everything from Gospel, Dance R&B, The Sexy South to hard core MOP. Enjoy!
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).
