Here’s a 5 minute 7inch DJ Mix of 7 well known disco songs that I made one morning. I made it 5minutes long as these days realistically not many people are going to spend longer than this minutes watching me DJ online. In todays age with so many DJs pushing buttons on controllers and computers, heavy handed scratching on control records where needles do not jump and good knows how many DJs staring at screens DJing without using headphones – I feel like so many old traditions are being lost. To be honest… it’s fun mixing vinyl and that’s one of the reason so many of became DJ’s years ago (upon the love for music). So here you go a classic beat matching quick mixing DJ short mix: no scratching, no computers just hands, ears, the lovely feel of vinyl and musical love! 

Track list:
Diana Ross – Upside Down
Shalamar – Night To Remember
Mcfadden and Whitehead – Aint No Stopping Us Now
Jackson 5 – Blame it On The Boogie
Cheryl Lynn – Got To Be Real
Emotions – Best Of My Love
Shalamar – I Can Make You Feel Good


 

As I was playing a few disco oldies one rainy Sunday, I thought I’d have a short mix and record it. If anyone fancies a listen or watch? Here it is… nothing fancy, just simple classic mixing. No computer, no easy feel Serato vinyl, no bpm counters, no quantised beats and no scratching. Fun music with bad dancing from me in the background that you lot can’t see.

Track list:

1. Sister Sledge – I Want Your Love
2. The Whispers – And The Beat Goes On
3. Stacy Lattisaw – Jump To The Beat
4. Chaka Khan – I Feel For You
5. Sister Sledge – Got To Love Somebody


I was having a clear up and found some my old favourited R&B Hip Hop vinyls from 90s to 2000s, so I thought I’d have a little mix and video it. Again classic 12 inch vinyl mix no laptops involved, no loops, cheats or effects just the ears, hands, 2 upfaders and a crossfader so I DJ’d the same way in this video.

Jade – Don’t walk away
Mya – Case of the ex
Naughty By Nature – Hiphop Hooray
Snoop – What’s my name
A tribe called quest – Can I kick it
Gangstarr – Full clip snippet (I should have played that till the end… oh well what’s done is done)
