here is a mix for y’all

I’ve been learning how to use Ableton Live to put together DJ mixes. Here is a mix from me.

It starts with my favorite track in the entire world, Township Funk, by DJ Mujava, in its original version. I’ve heard about 30 remixes of this track by every famous DJ you can imagine, and to me, nothing matches the stark, haunting quality of the original. It ends with Anya Marina’s accoustic cover of T.I.’s Whatever You Like, which isn’t particularly an electro song, but I was so obsessed with this plaintive song about love and money that I had to include it. Love and money is quite apropos for Bangkok, where you can’t escape the constant golddigging even if you try. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, so here is a mix about love and money.

Share and enjoy!

(Ps. Special thanks to James Alexi (DJ James) for teaching me the basics of AL!)
