Debut Series 49--Ladymode--The Renaissance

Every year, I do an album for the RPM Challenge, which is a contest for people to do one album of 10 songs or 30 minutes of music during the month of February. This year was particularly hard because I caught a nasty flu before getting the tracks together, so I was only able to get 7 songs. Alot of the songs are remixes, but I hope that you like them :)

5AM (A Girl Like You) [Mode.Radio Remix]

Changes in Life, Changes to Mode.Radio

Life is about change, right? Well, here at Mode.Radio, change is happening. Let me tell you why. My personal life has completely changed for the better (more details to come....), so the time that I have to devote to Mode.Radio has become limited. Therefore, Mode.Radio is going back from being bi-weekly to once a month for the rest of this year. There is a possibility that we may go back to being bi-weekly in 2012, but we'll see.

Mode.Radio started out as a once a month podcast back in 2008 and right now, I think this is the best direction for it to go. The good thing about it is that the mixes that will be placed on this blog will be of top quality and the DJs exposed will be very strong. Radio Ready will still feature DJs who either have been on Mode.Radio before or are super good DJs. The Stash will still feature sets that are classics and the Debut Series will still feature up and coming DJs.

I hope that these changes will not affect how much you listen to Mode. As usual: Enjoy!
