I finally got over my “this is not perfect yet” drive to post this. And yes, I know exactly where the blemishes are on this comp, but if I don’t just get it out there, I’ll stall and bluster and not deliver. Warts and all, here is #15 from DJ Lurk.

As usual, there are a whole bunch of influences to thank for finding these phresh tracks, starting with S.A.T., whom I love dearly, not least for her taste in music old and new. Other contributors include brothers T-Boz, Kleptus, Moonbow, and Jamie & Sioux; Pat and Scot from Stay Classy who do good work every day besides noting dope tracks; DJ Hero from Activision for doing a superb job getting real turntablists to influence the next generation with kickass games — they’ve come a long way from Atari cartridges; my main man C-Rok who crushes shit better than established remixers, the Ultimix family, The CherryTree House for providing that uniquely awesome recording venue, King Fantastic for restoring my faith in that SoCal gangsta shit, Lady GaGa whose preponderance on this comp is easily surpassed by her support of the Little Monsters (of which I am one), my brothers Kyle and Jon who got married in 2010 (FINALLY!), the one-of-a-kind vision and autotune skills of DJ Steve Porter who went on to rock the NBA Finals among other brands, the DJ / Producers that keep it fresh: Chew Fu, Afrojack, Kaskade, Deadmau5, and Pete Tong’s Essential Mix; and last-but-in-no-way-least my version of Charlie’s Angels: Brooke Lee Adams, Gracie Glam, and Kristina Rose.

Of course, the people that make this go are the original artists, whose rights are completely reserved; this is for promotional purposes only. Go buy music! I am always awed by having to decide what to include on the yearly comp and in what order it is supposed to be in so that I can recreate the spray-Pledge-on-the-hardwood-floors-and-dance-in-your-socks feeling that I got listening to these tracks all year long. Make time to share, dance, and relax while you enjoy this latest installment by DJ Lurk. I have big love for you all. PEACE!
