The DJ mix is a staple of dance music going right back to the days of Kool Herc & Grandmaster Flash and the Soundsystem culture of Jamaica. Its the thing that unites Reggae, Hip Hop, Disco, House music, Techno and the growing number of sub genres that continue to evolve out of these hallmark sounds.
The standard image associated with all of these musical genres is a DJ spinning tunes behind the booth and we all love a good mix right? So here’s 5 mixes to load up on your music player of choice.
