Back in September, I put together a special mix of Aretha Franklin music for my man DJ Phatrick’s monthly Devil’s Pie party. I have to say – this was a really fun mix to work on, especially in digging deep into Aretha’s catalog for both obvious and not-so joints to include. The mixing, though more on the simple end, was fun to figure out too, especially in transitions between songs that went amazingly well together, such as “Son of a Preacher Man” to “Mr. Big” to “Baby I Love You,” or “Mockingbird” into “So Soon.” I didn’t initially think it’d be that easy to put together a solid, hour-long dance mix of Aretha songs (since so many of my personal favorites are actually ballads) but she certainly wasn’t lacking for things to shake a tail-feather to.

The mix is currently available for digital download purchase through East Bay Digital. No more CD copies, sorry!
