Podcast Monday?? Well that’s what happens with the Holidays, we gotta cram all of our leftovers down your throats before they get old and freezer burned.
We’ve said everything that could be said about our party over here, so let me just talk a little about this set it self. I really tried to fuse together a lot of the highlights of 2010 which turned out to be a bit challenging as I spent half the year in Bolivia! I really think DJing there, and in Japan, has helped my over all sound and appreciation for music though.
I’ve always maintained that when you travel you find out more about what it means to be human. See when you travel you can interact with people and cultures thousands of miles away that have completely different languages and cultural norms, yet you can still observe all these similarities (sharing a smile, a love of food, kids kicking a ball, helping a stranger, love for family, etc). To me, those are basic human traits that we share with all others of our species.
And while this corollary doesn’t exactly hold true with music, I have found that there are certain rhythms, certain sounds that most club-going people in the world get down with, so I tried to bring a little this international favor back with me. Combine that with a bunch of hand made mash-ups and re-edits, some hot off the presses new jams, and a custom NYE intro* and hopefully we’ve got a set fit to kick off your 2011!
Enjoy! We’ll be having another party here soon so hope to see you there!
* The countdown in the beginning of the set is the actual recoding form the party!
