Hot from a sizzling summer and just in time for the shifting seasons, DJ Skiddle proudly introduces his first mixtape. Following a decade of foundational work with c89.5 FM and the Seattle electronic music scene, Skiddle has begun to focus his attention on mashups, and this culminates in a compiliation of his favorites. This flavor-packed, hi-energy dance mix is bet to set your sweaty groove on around the clock. At just over an hour, this mixtape mashes over 40 songs over 40 years of dance music together in perfect harmony. “One of my favorite things about Skiddle’s style is that he can (and does) take elements from songs in different genres and even eras and make them work flawlessly together," says producer Sammy LaForge (CyberSutra, Banger Bros, Golden Needle Records). ”His mixtape 'Taste It' is going to have you dancing." Skiddle also maintains an active presence in the local arts and culture scene outisde of the mix studio. "I really appreciate Skiddle's ability to merge the passion of his dance music with his ability to clearly speak about it with the utmost social responsibility," says scholar/ teacher/ writer Dr. Rahul K. Gairola (UW, Cornish College of the Arts, Seattle Gay News). "When he speaks to the students the fire lights in their eyes, and soonafter, their feets and minds on fire -- 'Taste It' will appeal to younger listeners, as well as older generations."
DJ Skiddle has been passionately refining his music-mixing skills for over a decade, and has been showcasing these skills in Seattle for the past three years. His dance mixes and mash-ups are staple party anthems at nightclubs across the city, namely on Capitol Hill. For two years, he has also been helping commuters unwind on Mondays and, more recently, Tuesdays and Thursdays, with C89.5 FM's "Drive at 5” mixshow. His trademark blend of Mainstream Dance, Pop, House, and Electro bring a unique music perspective to "Team Drive@5" and his shows are known for their high energy. For nearly a decade, Skiddle has been creating mash-ups, and he incorporates live mash-ups into his stage sets. His "Mashers" seamlessly blend the energies of mulitple songs. Unlike many mash-up DJs, most of Skiddle's mashups are Mainstream Dance-based and geared toward a more modern dancefloor. Skiddle released "Taste It," his first mashtape, in September 2011.
I promise you'll love it!
