THE DIARY OF A DJ is a mixcast, or better said, a non-tape kind of mixtape. It focuses on telling a story by way of thematically presented songs reminiscent of concept album LPs. The songs used are primarily club, downtempo, dub and ambient from artists of the past and present. The intended audience is the dj of course but program directors and other industry denizens, as well as those new to the genre, are invited to listen.
As diaries often are, the 'pages' of these mixes, talk to the up and down life encounters (in and out of clubland) as seen through the eyes of the disc jockey and more specifically a dj who goes by the name of Marin. Some have described his work as NPR's Echoes meets the UK's Ministry of Sound, but this having been said, it remains a sound sculpture and soundscape that can not be easily defined.
