mixology 101

Some of these mixes are as old as dirt, and many of the songs featured are so 3 years ago. But, what these mixtapes are really designed to demonstrate are my mixing skills and the way I transition….I don’t just press ‘play’! Take a listen and see for yourself.

This mixtape is the final hour of a huge seven hour set at Kat and James’ wedding.  It’s heavy on the hip-hop as per their request.  There were so many songs to pack in to this last hour that many of them were mixed out of pretty quickly to make room for the next one and to keep the party jumping.  Sorry, but this is not your average wedding DJ set. (Not sorry).

Mashed Up Beyond All Recognition – this mixtape features mostly hip-hop acapellas layered over some beautiful instrumentals from other tracks you may recognise, all expertly mixed by Cut a Rug’s very own DJ AD (aka Aaron).  If you like mash-ups, you’ll love these.

 

A cacophony of indie, JJJ, hip hop and acoustic all rolled up into a neat little 30 minute package. This mix reached #1 on the indie chart, #1 on the bass chart, and #2 on the hip hop chart on mix cloud. Enjoy.

Here’s a another mixtape for you – it’s a nod to the 90s, and features a bunch of random songs that I kinda dig but almost never play. I actually put this together for a fashion parade at a bridal expo back in 2014. The designer hated it and gave me evils for the whole show. Enjoy!

Here’s a mixtape I made for the A Darling Affair wedding expo way back in 2013. You can click here for more info and a track list.
