Hi. I'm going to (attempt to) write a weekly column over at NYU Local, published on Thursdays. Here's this week's theme:
"The DJ mix is the knob-twiddler’s answer to the heart-on-sleeve mixtape. You won’t hear much romantic exultation, but you should get a good sense of the mixer’s tastes, as well as a number of fresh cuts to check out. There’s unique pleasure to be had in sitting down and hearing an hour’s worth (or more) of sequenced music with seamless transitions. In the shuffle-happy environment we live in, that art form is a rarity. Fortunately, while albums may be endangered, the mix is remains very much en vogue."Read the rest here.
