Welcome, to the 5th mix in Merrick's 10 part mix series presented by Only The Beat. We're half way through the series and the mixes just keep getting better and better. But what I really want to highlight in this post, if I can provide you with any value today, beyond the two and a half hour of bliss below (free download too!), I'd like everyone to take a moment out of there day to think about the true art of DJing. The ability to set the mood. The importance of playing to your audience. The real skill behind crafting a musical journey.
I'm just glad people like Merrick exist and are willing to put their time and effort into creating something for us to enjoy.
Remember that feeling you get when you discover you and a new friend have the same exact taste in music? That instant bond? I get that same feeling every time I listen to a new mix that blows me away.
This isn't a workout mix, this is a late night smoke filled room type of mix. Turn it up.
Merrick's own words on the latest mix:
"Welcome to the 5th Installment of the Senseless Mix series provided by Only The Beat. In this mix I wanted to create a mix to characterize coming out of a deep sleep, awakening to the sound of sweet music, and drifting in and out of dreams. I carefully selected this tracklist with both old and new favorites and had an amazing time compiling them together. I really hope you enjoy it as much as I do ☺"
