We know him as “Mr. Fist-Pumps”, The “New Orleans Club King”, and for his radio show’s trademark moniker “In Ya Box!”; the infamous DJ Mike Swift had humble beginnings in his hometown of Algiers, La. At the age of twelve, Swift saved up his allowance and brought his ﬁrst DJ kit from an ad in the Source Magazine. The rest is history and now you can find Swift on the New Orleans R&B station 102.9 KMEZ-FM or in the mix around New Orleans and across the US. Swift has influences from Jazz, Hip Hop, Rock, and many more genres that show in his mixes.
This mix was recorded live at Red Bull Thre3Style New Orleans Qualifier on January 12th 2013. Red Bull Thre3Style is a DJ contest that promises to be a night of dance-floor mayhem. The participants have to play a selection of at least three genres or styles of music in 15 minutes. It doesn't matter what genres of music are chosen so long as the DJ can make them work together.
