Delta to Digital (Blues Vibes, Samples, Remixes, and Mashups).
This DJ mix explores a 21st-century take on the roots and branches of the blues family tree through beat-driven electronic music. Everybody gets the blues, sometimes!
Without the blues masters of the Mississippi Delta, we wouldn’t have modern popular music as we know it. Over the last year or two, I’ve been listening for their digital echoes in remixes, samples, and mashups. By curating this DJ mix, I’m paying homage to the enduring vitality of blues music. Much respect to the African American originators, lest we forget their struggles…
Listen now! And remember, sharing is caring.
