Posting another mix from my archives. This one, when it was released, became the favorite DJ Mertz mix for many of my fans. It ends with house, but before it gets there, the mix goes through some hip hop, some funk and some odds and ends. It's also the first time I ever recorded slowmo disco in a mix.
The story behind the mix...
I was booked to spin a set on WRFU's "The Show" back in August of 2008. As I tend to do with radio sets, I planned things out pretty tightly. That was all thrown out the window when a great freeform discussion about race and politics emerged on The Show. I should have expected this because The Show has always been a great mix of music and social discourse.
I had a great time on The Show, but I didn't want what I thought was a good set to go to waste. So I recorded this mix at home the day after my appearance on The Show. Enjoy!
