Well, it's just about the end of the year, so I wanted to make a mix I rarely share with the public. Thanks for all the support, and let's make 2020 even better!
Just some RnB and Hip/Hop I've been feeling over the past year that I mixed right after work, and this is an example of what I like to spin at The Royale Cigar Lounge on Saturday nights in Columbus, Ohio.
I hope you dig, and feel free to share and stop by sometime for Ladies Night. Peace!

To tell you the truth, I just want an opportunity to play in cities that appreciate this type of vibe. Until then, I'll just keep practicing.
I hope you dig the vibe, and thanks again for taking the time to listen.

Once again, thank you for tuning in all these years, for I appreciate each and every one of you that take the time to listen and spread the good word.
Seems like more and more local djs are willing to incorporate House Music in their sets, and maybe one day we can convince our local radio stations to let us spin on Sundays & Holiday Weekends. (Looking at you Magic 95.5!)
September 2019 marks an entire year of spinning at The Royale Cigar Lounge, where I love to spin Lounge and Soulful House music on Friday nights. I hope a mix such as this encourages more people to accept this type of vibe in the coming years in Columbus, Ohio.
If you dig the mix, stay tuned for more in the very near future, and feel free to leave a comment. Peace!

Well, here's another mix that I've been sitting on for quite some time. When I think of all the other types of music that come from countries south of the equator, they all have one thing in common: The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. No matter what the style of the music is considered today, they all originated in the Motherland.
If you're fortunate to travel to these countries, take the time to take in the music culture. I can't wait to get to Cuba personally. Peace and I hope you enjoy what you hear.

For close to 12 years since my "partner in crime" dj Vibe introduced me to The Rurals (Hello Nina lol) and a French dj named Cam, I've been on a mission to expose the residents of where I reside (Columbus, Ohio) to the sexier side of Lounge; Nu~Soul; Soulful House; and most recently Afro House music.
I've been fortunate to spin at an Upscale Cigar Lounge for the last 6 months, and I think the above styles of music fit the venue perfectly. I just hope I can continue to spin through the Summer.
This mix is an example of the style I would play early on in my set or during a day party, but you just might enjoy this mix during a ride out of town. Can't wait to visit the studio in Detroit soon!
I hope you dig what you hear, and let me know in the comments. #GoodMusicLives

Hello again, and thanks for tuning in. I recorded this at the Cigar Lounge, and was getting into it by the end. Man I wanted to spin til 2am.
I love Soulful House Music. Beautiful music arrangements, positive lyrics, and positive vibes. How can you not enjoy music like this? Can't wait to play in this in my ride.
Hope you dig the mix and there are more to come. #GoodMusicLives

Another mix from the mind of Dino...
As I get older, I reminisce on the music my Aunts and Uncles would introduce me to when I spent time with them over the summers. My Uncle Alvin and Aunt Joanne in Baton Rouge, Lousiana, Aunt Rita and Uncle James in Flint, Michigan. I would sit in Aunt Gloria's car and act like I was driving with just the ignition switched on and jammin to her 8-Track collections. There were times we'd babysit ourselves while they went out, and my cousins and I would raid through their records. Miss those days... Anywho, I also wish I had access to music like this as a teenager, and after serving in the Army. Radio Stations are so limited based on where you live and if only at least for a Sunday (weekly) go back and teach folk all the music they may have never heard... Thanks Joey. I'll keep researching as long as I have a heartbeat. Hope you dig the mix.
