DJ Mixes

I started DJ’ing with records in 1992 (on WNUR 89.3FM — Evanston, IL.) Since then I switched to CDs and more recently to mixing on a PowerBook with Native Instruments Traktor and a Feena FM-DJ9303 MIDI controller.

There’s a big variety of stuff here: techno, drum ‘n’ bass, ambient, electroswing, even some “real” music. All of the DJ sets on this page are recorded as high quality downloadable MP3s with no interruptions or voice-overs. Enjoy!
