Hi everybody, I’m Chrissy, a DJ, producer, record label owner, and dance music nerd.
Like many working DJs, I’ve made a lot of custom edits of songs to play out—taking a song I love and tweaking it for a dancefloor, or taking an almost-great song with some flaws and rearranging it to be just the bits I like. I’ve released a couple of these re-edits on vinyl, but for the most part I’ve kept them to myself.
In 2009, I started a blog called “My Year of Mixtapes“, where I made a mixtape a week, every week, for a year. Five years later, I’ve decided to follow up with this blog, where I’ll be giving away a new disco edit every Wednesday for a year. Or maybe longer.
The first free edit will go live September 3. See you then!
