Retail DJ August Podcast

31 Aug

While I was flying from NYC to Sao Paulo, I had 9 hours to kill. Though I had chosen the tracks I wanted to feature in the August podcast earlier in the month, I had yet to work on the full assembly because I had been swamped trying to work ahead at job number 1, teaching and preparing to go to Brazil for job number 2, and updating things here at Retail DJ for job number 3. After putting together the song components, I was pleased with the smooth, lounge-y feel of the set, and all that was left to work on was the voiceover. Yet thanks to the magic of a cold I couldn’t get rid of and congestion that just would not let up (though, given, the surprise 40 degree nights in Sao Paulo I braved with just a grandpa cardigan didn’t exactly help), my voice was a wreck. I sounded a bit like a man and, on top of that, a man who had plugged up his nose and ears with clay. Not sexy.

So I waited it out, hoping my voice would improve, as August steamed along, each day meaning the podcast was going to be coming later and later. After finally regaining a few more octaves of my voice and the ability to breathe through one of my nostrils, I tried my hand at the voiceover. Then, while in Rio, I had to deal with the s l o w e s t wireless internet ever. I could hardly check my email, God forbid upload a podcast. Sigh.

Finally, I was able to release the mix a few days ago once I returned to Sao Paulo, but didn’t have the time to type up a post. Nevertheless, today, on the last day of August, I come bearing gifts.

The Retail DJ August Podcast is a true reflection of where I am right now in my life. It’s the mellowest of sets yet, and even slightly melancholic, yet perfect for relaxing, save a few of the songs I added to keep your ears open. I have to say that despite its mood, it’s one of my most favorite podcasts to date, and one that was completed over one of the best experiences this year – returning to Brazil.

I hope that this mix means as much to you as it does to me, and if not that, that it at least gives you some much needed aural pleasure. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Retail DJ July Podcast

31 Jul

Woohoo! On the last day of July, I finally put out the July podcast. As I explain in the introduction of the podcast, putting together this set was super difficult, mainly because a lot of the electronic music blogs have been putting up total crap. I mean that in the nicest way. It’s not so much that the individual tracks themselves are bad, it’s just that they all sound the same. I have noticed that the mixes I’ve come across as of late, while some suffer from the same problem, are fairly good because they include several other genres and mix up the sound. I think that’s really the key to good music – not being so stagnant and understanding that it’s in the mixing, the hybridity, that real music is born.

For this podcast, I really integrated a lot of the songs I have been getting ready to before I go out that amp me up and make me feel in a dance-y mood before I leave my apartment. I mixed in some music I’ve been introduced to by way of other mixes (such as the FCL tracks, which I first heard via mixes from La Fleur and Mowgli), some 80s music I heard and got all nostalgic about while watching Nip/Tuck, and some other items that are just generally personal favorites. The new tracks, such as Ali Love’s “Smoke and Mirrors” and Brodinski + Radioclit with “Plz Let Mi Fuk Ya (a weird, but fun track) are good stand-alones and were chosen because they have a unique sound that targets common bits of one’s musical palette without boring the person to tears.

While it was a trying task this time around, the podcast is solid, and I hope you all can enjoy the music as much as I do! (By the way, apologies for my voice – I’m a little sick!)

Retail DJ May Podcast

28 Jul

Taking a cue from the folks over at Too Many Sebastians, I thought I’d pay a little homage to the now-famous Brazilian DJ Duo The Twelves. Their remixes are sick, and I’ve included my favorites in this podcast. Based on the May tracklist, this podcast is short and sweet, at only about 36 minutes, but it’s enough to get a party going in your pocket (via your iPod of course!), to wake you up at work, or motivate you before getting your stomp on at the club.

Retail DJ June Podcast

30 Jun

For the Retail DJ June Podcast, I wanted to include tracks that would make you dance, but also music that was mellow enough to listen to as you attempt to cool down despite the ridiculous summer heat. It’s without a doubt a serious mix, with very little room for lighter tracks, but I included a few playful moments just to keep you all entertained. Play it loud, play it proud, and enjoy!
