Fisher Price: My First DJ set

Well I finally did it. Friends had been asking me to start DJing in the past and after Uzoma started DJing at our local watering hole Ba-Da Wings, I asked if I could DJ with him. So I did a set of Indie, electro, house and tech house (kind of in order). I forgot to record it the actual night of, but here is a set I recorded as practice a few days before. The mixes aren't amazing.. but I had fun and will probably keep doing this whenever given the opportunity. Thanks to all my friends at Red Hat and outside of Red Hat who came out. Thanks to Uzoma for letting me spin with him. Thanks to Tanner for letting me use his Kontrol DJ MIDI controller and his Firebox soundcard.
