I was introduced to Dancehall by my fellow crew member, DJ Sid VIcious way back in the early 00s. Wasn't really my thing but I enjoyed the bumpin' and grindin'. Fast forward some 10 years later and my ex girlfriend (literally a dancehall queen) showed me the vastness of all the subgenres and dance moves and culture of Jamaica. So this mix represents both: the old stuff that I first heard and the newer stuff I learned later. By no means is this a definite mix, just the stuff I like! Enjoy!

Aw the New Jack Swing! Teddy Riley's stamp on R&B music that took America and the world by storm! I was only in my early teens but my older cousins were all about it. The style, the dancing, the music. It was my favorite time of R&B music. "Danceable R&B" as I like to call it. Also, R&B groups (not boy bands) were prevalent and drop crazy ballads that still ring true today. I think I am gonna have to make a "New jack Swing" slow jam mix next time. Enjoy!
I've been "breakdancing" for about 20 years or so. Sure, I have learned other styles and performed in front of millions of people but bboying was my first style I took seriously. So herein lies my favorite breaks and songs to dance/rock to. Not a definitive list by no means but the ones I like the most. Enjoy!
I used to LOVE Rap City, the BOX, and Yo! MTv Raps! My cousin and I would tape (that's vhs not dvr kiddies) our favorite videos and then swap them with our friends. Sharing and learning new music. Of course, I was east coast bias and didn't learn much about local bay area rap till later...but that's a mix for another day
Aw afterwork drinks! The best time to unwind, catch up, and even meet new people. It's a mgical time in the life of a young professional because it quickly becomes your first official networking spot. I love afterwork events because they are low key and fun. ENjoy the sounds...
We (GeekChic) throw an event called. Ties & Tini's, every so often and it's cool. Bow ties always make you look good and a good martini or cocktail is a perfect compliment. This mix is a nice cocktail of old, new, and rare stuff that I like. Hope you enjoy and it's geekchic baby =)

So, i took the week and actually listened to the radio. Mostly because I rarely do and sometimes you need to get in touch with what's popular. I still like spinning the smooth soulful sheit but I also like dancing with ladies as well. This is a nice grab bag of dance able tunes old, new, and forgotten. Enjoy!
I used to work at an indie movie theater/cafe in Downtown San Jose during college. It was an eclectic mix of artists, designers, writers, budding film makers, and musicians. Besides the random films we showed, we were allowed to play whatever CD’s (yea I said CD’s) we wanted. So I would make CD mixes of songs, give them themes, and play them in the cafe. One of the more popular ones were my “Hip-Hop Luv” mixes. Basically, R&B song’s with rappers on it or rap songs talking about women. Either way, they were a good reflection of what I would of listened to in my car, if I had one. That is the inspiration for this latest mix, enjoy and tell a friend.
When I came to NYC, one of my main goals was to learn how to house dance. I thought I knew when I came here but in about 5 minutes at my first house club I got schooled real quick! That was six years ago and I am still learning new moves and grooves even now. I also got more into the music and the various soulful sounds. Just that soft warm fun feeling of a good track. Either way, house is all about the music and I will never forget that that. - DJ Cam
