The new year is starting out great for me…I’ve been pulled back into my old hustle of making customized mixtapes. I had so much fun with this one. It has everything on it from hip-hop to soca. A little reggae, some R&B and of course some old school!!!
This is my December Mix aka The Usual Suspects. I’ve been listening to a lot of new albums these past few weeks and I’m proud to say that my favorite singers came hard! Say what you will about R. Kelly, Chris Brown and Alicia Keys but their artistic work stands firm. Hardships, mistakes and even crimes cannot take away their talent. I hope you enjoy the mix!
(THE CD VERSION OF THIS MIX CAN BE PURCHASED HERE) My boy Fave recently went on a search for my first House Music Mixtape on the mixtress. That made me smile but then I listened to it too. I have come such a long way since then. I decided to do a bit of a […]
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!
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…

Many of you know I’ve been on vacation from The Mixtress. During this time I been working hard at my J.O.B, attending classes at The Scratch Academy and hanging out in the strip club LMAO!!!
I will end up taking a few weeks off from the Mixtress because of the job, plus I’m learning so much at the Scratch Academy I wanna start practicing at home more. With the new turntables and loads of records that I have to catalog…I will be quite busy!
So I’m gonna leave you with some funk to tide you over til I get back. I also have a surprise!
Moving back to New York in 08 has had it’s challenges but has been very rewarding. Most people who come to my site now don’t know that I started off as topic driven blogger 4 years ago (who had the long posts lol). I always had the moniker DJ Diva before I started blogging. I […]
