There are quite a bit of things going on in this mix, as I tried to put a little bit of everything that was requested and talked about, while also paying homage to those who have passed/ Even though I usually try to find a dance hit to start off the mix with, after frustration, I just let the music play until I finally heard Alex’s voice and that’s what made me start out with To Make You Love Me. Curtis and Evelyn were easy choices, although I ultimately was persuaded by a group of folks for “I’m In Love” as the third track.
The Norman and Patti energetic tracks give way to Mutual Attraction, with Nick’s spin on it, which I played three times in a row to take it all in which is why it is the title track. My fave track from Howard Jones brightened up my morning on Wednesday, so Level 42 was an obvious choice to follow it. “Call Me Tonight” is one of my favorite instrumentals of all time and continues the homage to Kashif. The jam from The System is followed up with a Melissa/Peabo duet, given the green light by Nikki bka Infinite Ink. Angela is followed by Cameo’s track, given a huge thumbs up by DJ Vinnie V and AR, among others. One Way;s timeless track was played quite a few times, and one of my all time faves from Steely Dan caps this mix, and you can rest assured that there will be others presented this year with additional podcasts.
Drops by DJ Diva, Macedonaia, and G Dub.
