Sometimes you have to tip your hat to the discovery algorithms. (Or give a nod of appreciation to the gods of fortuity.) By the same token, you have to take your L when you belatedly get hip to a sensational DJ. As much as I appreciate Ed Banger Records and the music they’ve released, I...Continue reading
Salute the Mix
Good music is important. And a good introduction to good music is key. We feel the DJ plays a pivotal role in that regard. So we would be remiss if we didn’t put some emphasis on the ultimate tastemakers and their mode of communication specifically: the DJ mix. Here, we will highlight such mixes that enthralled us and also introduce to some of our in-house DJs.

And I was concocting it, I kept thinking of the magic of music… It relieves anxiety; it offsets the daily stresses; and it offers us...Continue reading

Our Final Goodbyes to the Year Past
This is coming a tad bit late, but this is a DJ R-Tistic mix. (I might be introducing all future DJ R-Tistic posts that way 😅). With the first major (commercial) day of 2019 almost in the book, it’s high time we looked ahead on to the next ten months and make the best of...Continue reading
