We Shot A Mix Vol IV: Prince William






In our WSJR Awards picks post from the other day (the results will be here within the next 24 hours, promise) John from Parade of Flesh argued that Dallas' DJ Prince William is "underrated" locally. I, personally, have always really enjoyed what Prince William does, so until today, I felt like I "rated" the guy just fine. However, after enjoying the mix he made for us several times this evening on my headphones, I'm more inclined than ever to agree with John-- this guy should be getting a lot more attention around town.

The latest installment in our We Shot A Mix series, Prince Williams' XXXl, contains the kinds of little touches and details that often allude most DJs of any caliber-- the track selection is tasteful and diverse, the mixing is flawless, attention grabbing and surprising, and the overall package takes you on a purposeful journey that maintains intellectual interest and inspires movement. The tone of most of the mix is dark and hedonistic, but a relentlessly joyous party vibe pervades throughout and takes over in many spots, allowing the whole thing to come off as fun but not overly bubblegum, serious but not stiff. When you download it, you'll hear bits of late 80's/early 90's hardcore, Chicago house, synth pop, Detroit techno, fidget house, straight up disco pop, the blogger friendly stuff, and Psychic TV (they're their own category), but the whole thing is so seamless that you'll have to listen more than once to pick out all the little pieces. It's an honor for us to be able include this in our mix series, and I'm pretty sure you guys will dig it quite a bit.

we break promises all the time... I'm hoping that because we do it so often, it has become strangely charming instead of annoying... but I doubt it.

Anyway, we are actually done counting now, and all that is left to be done is the post. You'll see it tonight.
