There’s a gaggle of dj mixes on the interwebs that feature tracks from Juice or My work for other labels. For example on Soundcloud, MixCloud and who knows where else. I try listen to as many as possible, and highlight them from time to time. This fine bit of editorial is a nod to the DJ’s that made Beatport Mixes and included our jams.
Most people hit Beatport to buy “exclusive” singles before they are released on the other digital stores. Some go there to find DJ Mixes they can buy, along with all the tracks that are in the mix. This is good for labels and artists because fans can buy these mixes, and “some” cash makes it’s way to the DJ and the artists.
The current oddity is if the mix is going to be for sale, all the tracks on the mix need to have been purchased from Beatport. This imposes a few pesky hurdles (like no pre-release hiotties) so I feel DJ’s that include us in these mixes go an extra mile to support us, and for that, we thank you!
While ratings vary by audience, technicality, music selection and a bunch of other factors, here’s a few of our favorites; Takeover by Gerry LaBarge, Experiment in Breaks by Josh Duncan, Year Of The Breaks by Jen Z (from our ZeroTribe Fam), Live at Decadent Oasis, Burning Man 2013 by Kev/Null, and Tampa Breaks (Summer 2012 Mix) – DJ Mondo by DJ Mondo.
