It’s coming to be about that time, the heat has finally left and we can finally venture outside to see the leaves fall on our lawns… and then rake. Anyway, a huge part of fall is Halloween, and a huge part of Halloween (besides putting on a mask to essentially remove another one and show our true selves) is the music. We all need a little music to trick or treat to, and I’ve put together a set of essentials to last an hour or 3, depending on how full your bucket is. Go on over and grab The Halloween Mix right now and get moving on that ‘costume’.
The Set List is a surprise. Enjoy ;)
It’s been a good minute (aka a long damn time) since I brought something to the table, so here’s something new to dance to at all those fall outdoor parties we’re about to have. Featured prominently in this set is the work of Berkeley CA artist KSHMR, of Indian descent. Get you some of Das Oktoberfest Mix .

I think Mother Nature is pretty much telling us all to get our bikini lovin’ butts inside and put on some damn clothes. That’s ok, though, because now we switch gears from Summer Sun to Winter Wonderland. Christmas music is already making its way onto folks’ favorite online streaming stations, even if they don’t admit it before Thanksgiving. Either way, it can’t hurt to have some music handy while warming up by the fireplace. Here’s some more for ya with The Winter Star Mix.

It’s been a while since I had done one of these, so I figured today was as good as any to go for it… for two reasons.. big reasons. The first one is my father. On this Father’s Day, there is no one I know who pushed me and supported me more to do whatever I set my mind to and excel at it more than him. He gave me a lot of life lessons that I still follow to this day and I can only hope that I can be half the man he is, and do the same for my son. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.
The second reason is the sad passing away today of the amazing DJ Casey Kasem. He was an amazing man whose voice carried me through my entire childhood. My dad bought an astounding Marantz sound system and we listened to Casey’s Top 40 countdown religiously. (We also listened to the Weekly Country Music Countdown, but I won’t mention that very often :P ). This great man will be missed. He inspired me to be a DJ, and to be able to do it while being approachable by his audience. The Long Distance Dedication was an amazing part of his show that told me that no matter how great someone can be, he can be anyone’s friend just by reaching out.
In dedication to these two great men in my life, I give you The Inspired Mix
One Republic – If I Lose Myself (Alesso Remix)
