Difficult Listening Hour 2020.07.04: America 2020 Edition

To celebrate All Countries Matter day, a (somewhat cynical) genre-spanning selection of songs for the Fourth of July.

If you’re American and will be 18 or older in November: Make sure you’re registered to vote, and vote this November. We could be so much better than we are right now.

Difficult Listening Hour 2020.05.30

Week fifteen of my unplanned, unrehearsed, seat-of-the-pants goofing around. As a way of getting back into practice and doing something regularly, I’ve started doing regular Twitch broadcasts, now on Saturday mid-mornings. These are the results. Anything goes.

Difficult Listening Hour 2020.05.23: Bombtime!

I’ve apparently fallen into the habit of doing some sort of themed set every third week. This week started when I realized how many songs I had with “bomb” in the title, and decided to see what I could do with that….

Difficult Listening Hour 2020.03.05: COVID-19 Edition

Week six, and this is one of the few times I’ve put together a set list ahead of time instead of going by the seat of my pants. Consider this the COVID-19 edition of DLH–the tracklist titles should make both inspiration and selection clear. 🙂 This does mean that this set is less about trying for a smooth mix all the way through and more about just having fun with the idea.

As a way of getting back into practice and doing something regularly, I’ve started doing regular Twitch broadcasts on Thursday nights. These are the results.

DJing on Twitch

The first of a hopefully ongoing experiment with DJing live to Twitch.

Difficult Listening Hour 09 (140 BPM)

Continuing with my loosely BPM-themed mixes, every song in this mix is somewhere between 135 and 145 BPM. And as always, this was mixed “live” and has no post-processing or editing work, so while it may not be perfect, it’s all me!

Difficult Listening Hour 06 (110BPM)

After taking last weekend off (but hey, I gave you almost four hours in two mixes last time I updated), here’s another new practice mix. Every song in this mix is somewhere between 105 and 115 BPM. And as always, this was mixed “live” and has no post-processing or editing work, so while it may not be perfect, it’s all me!

Difficult Listening Hour 05 (100BPM)

Finally! The first (and hopefully not the last) of a new series of long-form mixes! There’s no real particular theme to this mix, and likely won’t be for the next few mixes — primarily, I’m working on getting back in practice and getting used to my new equipment. As I do this, I’m recording what I’m doing, both so I can later listen to it and critique myself and so, if I think they’re good enough, I can upload them here. This was mixed “live” using djay with the Numark iDJ Pro controller and has no post-processing or editing work, so while it may not be perfect, it’s honest! 😉

Well, okay, there’s one light theme: Every song in this mix is between 95 and 105 BPM.
