Mode.Radio Weekly Mix #7--January 27, 2014--DJ Shadow--Live in Los Angeles, Halloween 2009 Mix

Hi Mode.Radio Fans!
I'm in LA this week for a conference related to my jobby-job :) So for this week's Weekly Mix, I thought that we should do a mix that in some way related to the city of Angels. Since I love DJ Shadow, I was very happy to find this mix. There's no tracklisting, but it's a freeform vinyl set with genres ranging from EDM to Rock to Breakbeat and more. Enjoy!

Mode.Radio Weekly Mix #6--DJ Jamad--Purple Moon Mix

DJ Jamad of Atlanta has been a friend of mine for many years. I met him in the oddest place, my dentist office! I didn't realize that he was the soul DJ that I had been seeing at clubs like "Kaya" and "Ten27" until he gave me one of his mixes in the dentist chair, lol!

When I went home for the holidays, I picked up his mix "Naturally Red" and enjoyed it. So when I was looking for a weekly mix, I stumbled upon this one. It's been out for a year and it features some neo-soul classics and updated cuts. You can check out his other mixes on Soundcloud under DJJamad Plays. The. Ish, or on his website, Enjoy!
