Favorite Mixes of 2011:

I collect a lot of mixes from various artists & djs. They keep me moving all day long! Here are my favorites from 2011:

SBTRKT Essential Mix

One of my favorite shows last year, SBTRKT came out of nowhere and became one of my favorite artists. I fell in love with this mix the second I heard it.

Afrolicious 3-Year Mixtape

I had this one on repeat for months. It's spicy and funky!

Disco Science (Om:cast 025)

I love Om Records! This disco mix by J Boogie makes me feel good, plain and simple.

Boy 8-Bit - May 2011 Mix

Like Ramadanman, Boy 8-Bit knows all the right beats to get me moving. Toe tapping, bouncy Marcy can't hold still when this mix is playing.

Fool's Gold Radio - August 2011 Mix

A friend turned me on to A-Trak...now one of my absolute most favoritest djs! Can't wait to see this guy play out somewhere.
