NEW PODCAST! DJ MENSA ALL VINYL SET ON BOOGIE FRESH LIVE!

Shout out D-Smooth, Givin Design, Jay Dunaway and the whole BFL team who had me on for their latest episode. As a videocast showcasing local DJ’s in the area, I was able to flip it and take my playlist the #ALLVINYLEVERYTHING route. I present to you 40 minutes of unadulterated wax fondling. Mind the skips, warping, and fuzziness – that’s just what records do. Watch the video and you can also download the mix in mp3 format!

NEW MIX! DJ MENSA PRESENTS “DOWNTIME”

1977761_10152240490855071_2028891095_o

A coping mechanism for a never ending winter.

These are for times of insulation:

The huddled nap you take during the homestretch of your subway ride.
The hot breath that fills your cupped hands.
The tightness of the wool socks that wrap around your feet.
The radiator in the corner with your best interests in mind.
The comforter that seals off the last chill of the night.
The daily victory of coming home, and filling your personal space with anything you deem worthy.

Own those moments.

For tomorrow, and just a little while longer, winter awaits you again.

NEW MIX! DJ MENSA IN THE MOMENT: LIVE FROM MANILA (TRAP, MOOMBAH, BOOTY, TW*RK)

My first mix back in 2014! And it’s a fun one!

Screen shot 2014-02-09 at 6.50.18 PM

Last month, I was in the Philippines for an extended stay and befriended Kevin Ruiz, a mainstay in the Manila club scene for years. He was gracious enough to have me guest at his infamous Zero Mondays night at Imperial Ice Bar, alongside the amazing tastemakers Flex & Sanya Smith of the Zombettes.

Kevin gave me the green light to go in on whatever I wanted, so I took the crowd on a hip-hop/EDM journey.

1619530_614739861914601_1762792509_n

The playlist is in the info of the file, but I wholly encourage to just take it in as you would live in the club, anticipating the DJ to select the next big tune.
