I took a listen. Don't think I'd play any of them at a wedding, just sayin'. I'm not keen on hip-hop/rap mixes. Jackson Five was good. Thanks for printing out the playlist for each mix. I'm sure others may have wanted to know what was in your mixes, too.
What mixes specifically are you referring to? The one that starts out with J5 is my wedding demo, haha. I still do a lot of what is in the mix live as it works so well for a wedding crowd.

This is some of my more wedding focused stuff:



Nice idea to do a multi-decade mix! .... Like the quote in Step Brothers...37529
" It's pretty much like mixing in a time machine!" :laugh:

Ross, I'd like to buy these two.
They aren't something I'm selling, really for two reasons.

1) It's illegal - I don't own the rights to any of that music and so profiting from it's sale is a big no-no.

2) I don't really want other DJs to sound like me. These are intended to be a representation of the kind of work I do live. While I'm more than happy to help anyone that is learning to mix and blend on their own... having a pure recording of my work out with someone passing that mix off as their own work isn't something I'm looking to facilitate. I can't stop someone from ripping it from MixCloud, but that's part of why my mixes have watermark tags on them.

I took a shot at my first mashup. I’ve never done one before. Good learning experience. I wanted to try my hand at two totally different modes of music...a cappella and pop so chose Pentatonix “Cracked” and Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You”.
Check it out here.
Nice work!! Im not really familiar with "Cracked" did you add extra beats?

Did you talk to management about it?

"Hey, do you want to hire the DJ that actually sounds like that?"

Yeah, added some extra mojo here and there with beats. I wasn't sure if the section right after the a cappella intro of Cracked if the instrumental part of Shape of You is too far in the back ground and not distinct enough to be clear that a new layer is getting introduced. Open to any suggestions from anyone.
