A New Mix for Your Listening Pleasure

DJ Vettie Vette presents Everybody Loves The Sunshine: Summer Mix 2009

I was shocked the day MIchael Jackson died and now when I think about it, it still hurts a little. Mostly because there will never be another person who can do what he did in this lifetime. He is the King. This was further confirmed when I went to the Philippines and saw for my own eyes the global impact he had. They were playing one of his concerts on big screens in most of the Manila malls. It was a great sight to see and it inspired me to put together this mix. I didn’t want it to be just a Michael Jackson tribute mix, so I thought I would construct a mix around a few of my favorites from his collection. I usually have my mixes a little more planned out – but this one was a little more spontaneous. Just like any Michael Jackson song, one is compelled to dance and I honestly felt like I was playing out at a party when I made this one. Mostly vinyl w/ a little help from Traktor. 🙂

Enjoy!
