Quantum Shifts

Sharon and Jake Present 33 Golden HitsIf you’re wondering why blog posts here at Mashit have been less-than-frequent recently, here’s a little background:

Over the last couple years my life has undergone some quantum shifts. For example, I’ve transitioned from full-time DJ, music-blogger/producer, to full-time Creative Director at an economic development organization. I also became a husband and a home-owner. These new roles are super-exciting, fun, and challenging, but alas, they’ve left me with less time to focus on all-things-music.

That said, I’d like to share 2 DJ mixes I’ve made in light of these events.

The more recent of the two I presented to my wife, Sharon at the first anniversary of our wedding. It’s a compilation of songs featuring female vocalists.

The mix was inspired by the Little Dragon song “Feather.” Their singer, Yukimi Nagano’s voice is so amazing that it inspired in my mind a chain reaction of other songs with incredible female singers:

The other mix, which I made exactly a year earlier, is a compilation containing some of Sharon’s and my favorite tunes. It was given out on CD as a gift to guests at our wedding:

Neither of these mixes focus on the usual Mashit fare of bass-heavy, electronic-dance-music. But stay tuned to this podcast. I’ve got one of those classic Mashit mixes already done and will post it here soon.
