Halo-Halo Vol.1 | New Wave MusicOver the last few months, I’ve compiled some New Wave playlists only to remember that I never did what I wanted to create many years ago – an actual mix. Since DJ software was released, I didn’t make much of an effort to try. So I recently gave it a whirl, which has evolved into the following feature. And while the program was nice to use, it’s definitely not as cool as having the complete DJ setup. As a result, I now hold professional DJs at an even higher regard than before. I will likely mix more in the future, as I thoroughly enjoyed the process.

That said, I’m pleased to announce the release of Halo-Halo – named after my culture’s popular dessert and translated as Mix-Mix.

Disclaimer: Volume normalization is off. Furthermore, and in the case of two tracks in particular, the original sources are of low quality. Those sections are reminiscent of poor tape recordings (what’s that?) or crumpled tape (ha!). Everything else is okay.

Postscript: I added the artwork after finishing my second mix. It was meant to resemble some of the old school vinyl covers with a modern Photoshop twist. At the time, anyway.

    @Mike: Thanks! Also a big fan of Old School Chitown here. For mp3 downloads of my mixes, you can visit the House Mixes link on the right column or just click here. If there are any issues, please let me know. I haven’t put any of them on CD, but should do that at some point. They’re pretty much meant for the mp3 player. Stay tuned for future mixes, and thanks for stopping by!
