"The Ladies of Hip Hop: A BusyMix"

A quick look back to the days when we had legitimate female MC's.

"The Neptunes BusyMix Vol. 1"
(I Call it ' For Real' Cuz it's the Truth)

Here's the second mix. I put a ton of work into this one and really enjoyed making it. I hope you enjoy listening to it just as much.

"The Neptunes BusyMix Vol. II"
(We Got Another One Fa Real!)

The response to the first Neptunes mix has been so overwhelmingly positive, and these two musical geniuses have such a prolific body of work that I just had to do it again...and I STILL left a lot of tracks out. Look out for Neptunes III next year. As always, thank you and happy listening.

"The Nasty Nas BusyMix"

In light of the legendary Nasir Jones' recent (dope) release "Life is Good", I felt compelled to put together a mix of some of my favorites. Enjoy.

"The Grab Bag BusyMix Vol. 1"

No theme - just songs picked within the flow of the mix. Happy listening.
"The Groove: A BusyMix"

Just a quick mix I threw together after being inspired by some good "grooves" I had on while working. Enjoy.
"Yeezy Taught Me (A BusyMix)"

Being somewhat disappointed with "Yeezus" (and "contemporary" Kanye in general), I felt it would be a good idea to go through Mr. West's prolific production credits and see what I could come up with. Keep in mind that these are not "Kanye songs", these are songs produced by him. Enjoy.

"The Alphabet Mixes Vol. 1: 'A' "

Here it is, Vol 1. of what will be a (highly unlikely) 26-part series of mixes. If you haven't deduced from the song titles, the "A-Mix" is brought to you by the letter "A". I have a congratulatory back on the back ready for anyone who can tell me what Vol. 2 will focus on.

I'm doing this as a way to break up the monotony of mixing strictly by genre, artist, tempo, etc. I wanted to approach the music selection from a different perspective. It might be odd in places, but I'm sure I can iron out the wrinkles by Vol. long as I can find good songs that start with "X".

"The Totally Random R&B BusyMix"

The name speaks for itself.
"Live BusyMix Vol. 1"

This is the first mix where I didn't go back and remaster, clean up sloppy transitions, or re-record anything - nor did I pre-plan the set beforehand. I'm trying to work on my live mixing skills so I'm posting this mix as-is. I hope you enjoy. Remember, it's a little rough. I'll be sure to get that worked out in future mixes. Happy listening.
