There's actually a story that goes with this mix. Before the story though - I recorded this with hopes of it landing in the hands of someone who could help me get on. Meaning, a club gig, house party, ANYTHING. I wanna say I even made a few copies of it and gave it to some friends.
So here's the story!
I had my first ever club gig opening up at this local teen party. A big radio DJ was headlining the club that night, and I gave him a copy of this same mix (Shout out to Chris the Rebel!)
From what people tell me, another DJ I was running with at the time, gave Chris or somebody else that worked at the radio station MY mix, and told them it was his :(
So the radio guys ended up realizing the mix was actually mine, and the boss at the radio station (Jazzy Jim) wanted to meet me. I stole my Moms car (sorry Mom) and drove to the record store Jazzy had just opened up (Straight Hits Vinyl Shop) - that day he told me he heard my tape and asked if I wanted to come DJ on the radio.
