Flashflooder’s “4th of Rahuly” 7+hr Marathon Mix

flashflooder-4thofrahuly

Last Friday I threw a send off party for one of my very good friends Rahul (who’s leaving to travel the world) at my house which also served as a dual purpose independence day party (as it started on the 4th of July and went well into the 5th). At the party I was prepared to play a little DJ mix for everyone to groove to some quality tunes and have some dancing fun times. Little did I know that this DJ mix would actually stretch into all hours of the night, clocking in at just under 8 hours. That’s right, it’s not a typo. This was and in all likelihood will be, the longest DJ set I’ve ever played in my life.

Throughout the set I played a good majority of my favorite songs from recent times (as well as some friend request favs) and you can view the tracklisting in its entirety below if you’re looking to score some new tunes. Now to be fair, the mix does span over lots of genres including space and time and as a result there were more than a few moments of technical issues, party people intevening, impromptu live DJ lessons, and just mixes that I blatantly fucked up on (or forgot to turn off the volume on a deck when prepping a new track…rookie mistake heh). Not to make excuses, but I had been partying all day and this started late in the night and went into early morning so I’m going to go ahead and give myself a little break. Even though it’s not technically my best DJ work, it represents an incredible night and I wholeheartedly stand by the music selection being top notch throughout the night. Plus, it’s a frickin 7+ hr DJ mix! So, enjoy the sounds, push play, let it go, and get ready for a sonic rollercoaster. Hell, it’s as long as a whole work day so if you’re looking for a music playlist to get you through the day well, here you go. Also, for anyone wondering on the DJ’ing technical details I used a Vestax/DJTT VCI-400SE and a MF Twister with Traktor for the mix.

And so, I’ll close this post as I did on facebook when posting the mix with the words “hey, it was a late long party, we were all having a good time, and I choose to let the memory of the moments speak louder than the memory itself”. Most memories fade but priceless moments last forever. Remember that.
