Originally when I began putting this particular mixx together in my head, I had it all planned out about the vibe I wanted to bring. Somehow the music took me where it wanted to go. I like where I ended up, but I definitely got there another way. You know how it is when you are trying to find that one CD that you want to put in the whip (vehicle) to ride to? Sometimes you know exactly what you want to hear, but other times you just see what jumps out at you. That's how my creative juices work when I am making a mixx most of the time. See for me it's not about having the hottest tracks in the streets right now in my mixxes, but it's about trying to create a musical theme. Putting songs together like a collage for your mind and ear stimulation. It's not about the individual tracks so much for me. Yes, I want each track to have enough likability to stand alone, but I also want it to work together with the other tracks that it shares space with during the mixx as well. Yep, I's SIMPLY COMPLICATED!

I call this joint "Sunday Serenity" and it's a mellow rollercoaster of musical sounds all wrapped in a hard candy coated shell. Damn, I think I just described a peanut M&M?? Anyway, all you regulars know the routine by now, so have at it! Anybody here on their first date, welcome and just click around until you find something good.
