My first mix using the Djay app opened me up to a new world of mixing. For over 10 years, most of my mixes have been true to the tradition of two Technics turntables and a mixer. It's not like I have been hesitant to embrace technology—I use my laptop, and Serato and get by just fine with that. What's a DJ to do though when in transit though? Tapping away at the cue points, triggering effects at my fingertips in a recording on my iPhone, why the hell not?! Even though I deviated from my comfort zone of turntable hardware, I wanted the mix to sound thematically like what I'd play when I'm slumped over at a party watching the crowd dance in a belligerent rage. It's more than just aggressive drinking of alcohol to lower inhibitions though. The liquid courage changes the mood; good and bad decisions get made; there's a memory in every beat even if you might not remember it the next day. This mix illustrates how it all goes down.
