Debut Series 60--MsE--Just Playing Around--Prince vs Michael Jackson

For our last Debut Series, I have taken to the decks for a mix I did this week. I'm calling the series "Just Playing Around" because when I get behind the tables, I'm not looking to be a superstar DJ. I'm just playing around, mixing good music together. For this mix, I decided to go back to two of my favorite artists, Prince and Michael Jackson. I did the hits, but a couple of rare tracks too and some tracks inspired by or produced the artist themselves. Mixing's not perfect but I  hope you like me just playing around...

2. Sexy Dancer--Prince
3. Sexy MF--Prince
4. Dancing Machine--Jackson 5
5. Don't Stop till You Get Enough--Michael Jackson

Mode.Radio's Weekly Mix #10--Deep Dish--Essential Mix/March 22, 2014

As many old scenesters/ravers may understand, there's one website that you always go on for links to DJ mixes. Everybody has one. Mine is I have friends on there and I was put on this mix by one of them. 

If you don't already know, Deep Dish are a duo of DJs and house-music producers consisting of Iranian-American members Ali "Dubfire" Shirazinia and Sharam Tayebi. Based in Washington, D.C., they are well known for providing house or dance remixes of tracks of famous stars such as MadonnaJanet JacksonCher and Gabrielle, and for their live DJing sets. Their collaborations and remixing abilities first came to attention with their seminal 1995 remix of De'Lacy's "Hideaway." Deep Dish's album Junk Science was released in 1998. The duo was nominated for a Grammy for Madonna's "Music," and won a "Best Remixed Recording" Grammy for their remix of Dido's "Thank You."[1] In 2006, the DJs disbanded and moved to solo careers. They have recently regrouped, and have released a new single "Quincy"

This BBC Radio 1 Essential mix was the first time the duo have DJed together on the radio show since 2003. I fell in love with it and it's been on my playlist for the month of March.
Enjoy this great mix!
