DJ Cable Guest Mix on BBC Asian Network
It's been a pretty exciting week so far. On top of having 5 shows to do, and Serato Video-SL arriving in the post, I also had a guest mix aired on DJ Kayper's show on BBC Asian Network, as part of the Hype "Mixtape Challenge".
For those that don't know, each week Kayper does the "Mixtape Challenge" on her show, where she challenges a DJ to fit 3 or 4 Desi tracks into a 15 minute mix of any genre; be it cutting them up, remixing/re-editing them, etc...In other words, you gotta be creative!
Previous DJs who've taken up the challenge include Crookers, MJ Cole, DJ Craze & DJ Yoda, so I knew I had to step my game up! So as a result, this mix showcases a lot more scratching, a whole mixture of genres, and some re-editing which I've done in Ableton. I hope you enjoy it!
Oh, there's also a brief interview with me at the start too...You can all witness how...erm...monotone/quiet I am lol...
