Melting Pot’s 7 Year Anniversary Mix! (Playlist Added) 3


In addition to completely blowing up the old site and starting over, I really wanted to do something extra special after surviving seven years. The idea was to choose my 7 favorite tracks from each year of Melting Pot’s Dig Deep series and then to pass them on to a significantly more talented DJ to create a mix with those raw materials. I gave no instructions, set up no parameters, except that the mix had to end up being 77 minutes.  DJ Frane took up the challenge and created a masterpiece.

I had hopes and dreams about how this idea might end up, but nothing at all prepared me for the mix that Frane put together. Somehow he found a way to fit at least a part of every single one of the 49 tracks I gave him. In some cases tracks are layered on top of each other, sometimes Frane allows a whole song to play, sometimes he only brings in the break. In the process he creates a truly special mix. This isn’t just a collection of songs, it’s a 77 minute musical journey and every single second is absolutely amazing. Enjoy this to the fullest!
