Dj Polaski - The Journey

So in my return I wanted to provide a mix I've been working on for quite some time. it started around 2010 prior to my departure. It's a combination of several styles consisting primarily of Nu Disco (don't fret at the genre), Electronica, Deep House, and House with some hints of chillout and downtempo.

The idea, originally, was to create a story mix, not necessarily a themed mix (in which it's one specific genre). I liked that idea after hearing mixes from the likes of Sasha, Nick Warren, and Jody Westendorff, which took on a similar mixing methodology.

Anyways, as I revisited the mix this year, I took some tracks out, added some in, and increased its overall the length. The idea then hit me: why not continue to grow this mix?

"The Journey" / The Art of DJing is essentially the answer. Going beyond the standard CD length of 80 minutes, this mix will be a continuation over time. Right now, 18 tracks have been mixed, however, I've already started adding additional tracks in what will be "additional" revisions (with some very good deep house/fun eletronica tracks by the way).

The end result, I hope, is a 5 hour long mix. Who knows what I'll throw in there, but I'm hoping to cover more genres. I don't think it'll be looked on favorably as people tend to enjoy 1-2 genres in the EDM spectrum. None the less, unlike my other mixes, this one is for me.

p.s. With my return, I plan on pushing out other mixes too.

I hope you enjoy it!

Welcome back!
I like that one. But still hope that you'll mix something more like "Searching for Planets" one day.
