Episode 90 – Summer Sweat Sticks (Artwork – D.Hixon)
This is a little over an hour of a live vinyl set I spun at State Park Bar in Cambridge on 7.28.16, and it perfectly represents who I am as a DJ. In just over an hour I bounce across numerous genres in Mint Pillow style inspired by the lack of rain & summer heat. Don’t think there’s too many who throw down like I do, and am happy with how this snippet turned out, hopefully you’re exposed to a new favorite band or song here.
