Hip Hop

The past week has been really sweet. To start it off, I got some new equipment to mix with. I can’t even explain how excited I am to have this. While I’m still adjusting to it, my mixes should be much better. And this is my first hip-hop mix on it. And it arrived just on time, because….

It’s Dilla week! I’ve been listening to his stuff all week, and it was time to mix up my annual all-Dilla beats mix to celebrate his life and work. This was a great one to mix too, and I live broadcasted it as well (more on that later). It’s just over 90 minutes.
