This playlist seems a bit surprising to me considering the kind of music that you like to play, and the ideology you have about mainstream music. A lot of these jams are very mainstream, considering the amount of non-mainstream hip-hop music you have.

Amado, good point. I guess the difference between what many DJs like to listen to and what we have to play to keep the crowd happy. Still, I have to admit that I like a few um, questionable songs. But yeah, one reason I don't DJ in public too much anymore is that I'm too picky about my music and since I have a steady day job I don't need to DJ for the money any more.

I agree with Amado (I actually thought this was the music you heard being played, not the one you were playing) But I remember what you told us about you not wanting to play cookie-cutter music anymore and that being pretty much all people want to hear. I also remember Nesto said he doesn't like a lot of the music he plays when he DJ's. I remembered what you said about cookie-cutter music when he said "There is some music I have that I don't want, but I have to keep it because it's the music I DJ with" Bit of a shame that people aren't more open with music. I've been looking through the site to find some recommendations on which artists or songs are good. Can you make a playlist of some stuff you enjoy and put that up when you have time? I think it would help my playlist as well as encourage the musical enlightenment of others.
