By request…

I have had a few requests for mixtapes commemorating wedding receptions and have started working on fulfilling those requests. One recent wedding guest [the Rabbi!] asked for a specific snippet from the mix: my tribute to Snoop Dogg and Notorious B.I.G.; I call it the “Snoop’s too Biggie For You!” mixtape  [MP3 version]…

I made this special mix using my iDJ Pro and the new ‘djay 2’ app.

Enjoy!

Snoop’s too Biggie For You! MP3

Playing around with an ‘idea’ on vjay today…

Talked with a wedding client yesterday about the similarities between Marvin Gaye’s “Give It Up” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”. The client requested that I mix the songs during their wedding reception to blend the old and new for their partiers.

So, to see if it would work, I played around with it on my iPad for a bit. I had to search my iPad library before loading the tracks into vjay and stumbled across The Goodmen’s track, also called “Give It Up”. The BPMs were close enough between all three songs that I felt compelled to test them all in a quick recorded mix. Since I wasn’t using my iDJ Pro controller, I wasn’t able to fine-tune the blends, but I was happy enough with the results.

Then it hit me. Why not import the mix into vjay and add video to it? That would allow me to upload the entire thing for others to enjoy!

You’re welcome…

A ‘new’ test of vjay: video mixing software for iPad

After meeting with a client that did her homework (shout out to Jenny), I thought I would brush up on vjay really quick before making a more professional video mix for promotional use. This was done in one take, no planning or editing. So be kind…

I’m still here, still DJing, and still stepping my tech-game up!

I know it’s been a while since I posted something. I’ve been crazy busy with work and events, but I was mainly keeping things quiet while I was pursuing the acquisition of my latest ‘baby’:

Yes- that is an iPad in the center of a DJ controller; the Numark iDJ Pro. You know, the new setup I have been blogging about like an obsessed fanboy…

Well, I own one now and I will be using it exclusively for all of my new recorded mixtapes, including video mixtapes. Stay tuned for some interesting productions!

One more thing- the new moniker is “Mr. ‘Mix-It’!” I still roll with ‘Techjitsu’, but Perfect Mix Pro needed something that tied in better with the whole brand. Besides, Mr. Mix-It truly is who I am, what I do, and how I do it!

In case you missed it: 80’s Mix!

For those of you that don’t check the Mixtape section of this blog, I am posting my latest live recorded mix here. It can also be found in the ‘Quick Mix Series’ section. Be sure to listen to all of my mixes and feel free to download any of them that you find particularly enjoyable. I plan to add more as new music and influences hit me…
