2022 Summer Mix Series – 4 DJs, 20 Songs, 4 Wild Mixes!

Stylus SE - 2022 - Summer Vibes Mix Series - THE SAME SONG CHALLENGE!?


As DJs in the Raleigh/Triangle area we’ve done more than our fair share of parties where each group loves music that other groups love too. Some people want the songs that thrill the crowd, others want their event to sound different and unique.
We’ve been saying for years that you could give us the same songs and each one of us would make it sound different. So we put that on display with our first Summer Mix series.
The Challenge: 4 DJs Pick 5 Songs and add them to a playlist (20 songs total)
Each DJ has to make a mix featuring those 20 songs in some way. That could mean sampling, remixing, or doing mashups on the fly. But it had to be a LIVE mix, not some 30 minute long ableton edit.
The Result: Hear for yourself:

So why did we do this?
To put it simply, DJing is a lot more than just pushing buttons. There’s nearly infinite freedom to make the music more unique to each event than a lot of people are going to give it credit for. It’s not just what you’re playing, it’s how you play it, what you’re playing it with, and how you’re using the sound and the energy to create a certain vibe.
