NYC's DJ Never Forget is back with his newest mix, entitled 2nd Class: The Story of a Laptop DJ. Everyone seemed to love his Going to Work mix from a few months back, and he brings it again on this one (check that tracklist) Here's the summary, from Mr. Never Forget himself:
Stuck somewhere between ipod and vinyl djs, lies the laptop dj. Neither a selector nor old school, the laptop dj languishes in a world of 0's and 1's, able to mix, but never taken seriously. While able to obtain certain status, there is a glass ceiling they must watch their wax brethren through as they obtain international fame and fortune. Currently, there is a raging debate regarding the laptop djs place in the world. They are consumed by their need to prove that they too have an identity all their own. No longer complacent, their voices are being raised.
This is the tale of one dj's struggle.
