Jazzy Jeff on Future Flavas

Jazzy Jeff live on Marley Marl's Future Flavas show when it was broadcasting on Power 105.

DJ Hero presents DJ Jazzy Jeff. Going back to a previous post, I think the video game DJ Hero will be success which further propels the art of DJing into the mainstream. I don't expect to buy a game console just to be a digital DJ Hero but I would be willing to rent the game and play it on someone elses console.

To be frank; I have low expectations of the game because I can't see how three buttons on a digital turntable can compare to the real touch of spinning vinyl. I hope to be surprised though.

Today's mantra; make it count!

My 29th birthday was a couple days ago so you'll have to excuse me for getting 'deep' on you.

Let me remind you- there are 365 days in a year, in 10 years there are roughly 3,650 days and in 100 years (far beyond the average lifespan) there are roughly 36,500 days. Doesn't seem like a very long time- because - it's not! My message get out there and do something with your precious time.

Shall the enclosed mix motivate you to do one thing each day that makes the day count. Today, mine was producing this mix. What's on this mix you ask?

Today's mix starts off with some chill house then crescendos into a selection of some of my favorite old school rhythm and blues and hip-hop beats. Then finishes with a sweet cherry; one final feel good house track. Enjoy!
