It’s a shame, the “secret show” tonight had such promise. All they had to do was hold on to the information. Make it a mad scramble. Nobody gets a leg up on anyone. And we could have a jubilant experience in line with the shows back in ’04/’05: an intimate performance without the yuppies and industry douches that detract from their shows these days.
Back when I started doing these mixes every month, I saw it as a manageable way to keep recommending music without the effort that it takes to do a researched, singular writeup. It seemed to me that picking out 10 random songs wouldn’t be all that hard – I always have new things that I’m listening to, as well as my entire musical upbringing to highlight. A part of the experienced mixtaper in me was never satisfied with these as “mixes.” For one, there is only so much you can do in 10 songs… they really seemed more like mini samplers than what I knew a mix to be: there was no intro, no interludes, no story, nothing that expressed the voice of the DJ other than simple taste.
