It is no easy task to DJ for other people. Imagine going to work at your job and every five minutes some complete stranger walks up to you to tell you how they think you should do your job. Because, at their core, most DJ’s aren’t interested in being your personal jukebox. They don’t want to play the new Britney Spears for you, they want to play things you’ve never heard before and make you freak out on them.
This is not an easy task because most people don’t want to hear music they don’t already recognize, let alone try and dance to it. They want to hear the same top 40 crap the radio shits out every day. I don’t think I’ll ever understand this, but thats just me.
But one group that manages to play a lot of obscure old tracks and actually make them feel accessible is Psychmagik. I worship at the alter of these guys and every remix, re-edit or mix they put out is pure gold…as the remix they did of Fleetwood Mac above can testify to. Also check out their “Blackout ’77 Mix” below. This is some top notch ear food here.
There is also this little gem of a two hour mix called “Sunrise” that they dropped the other week. Pure magic! Download it over at Test Pressing HERE. Below you’ll also find their amazing remix of Tony Joe White, who you may recall also rocks.
Or this little psychedelic beat heavy number:
If these tracks don’t hook you then I can’t be of any more assistance today. Good day.
