We Shot A Mix 2.0-- Tommy Boy

Last summer we started the "We Shot A Mix" series in which we asked several of our favorite local bands and DJs to throw together an exclusive mix for us to share with all of you.  We've decided to do that again this summer with a whole new crop of bands and Djs, and since we can't remember how many mixes we did last summer (and don't feel like looking it up), we're just going to start using 2. whatever to number this year's selections.  What you're looking at is We Shot A Mix 2.0.  

We're really glad that our first mix of the summer comes from Tommy Boy, one of our favorite new DJs in the area.  The guy is REALLY playing some fascinating, hard to find (and often old school) stuff that you'll be hard pressed to hear from anyone else around town, and this mix is another great example of what I'm talking about.  But instead of me going on and on about it, I'll just leave you with the track list, the download link, and the little message that Tommy sent us about his latest:

It's my pleasure to bring you an exclusive mix for the summer blog season. The track selection is a collection of favorites I haven't yet worked into previous mixes, so this is truly a first. My intention was to cover a variety of sounds while offering a unique perspective on dance music. I'm really getting sick and tired of the re-re-remixes and the new-new-new sound that is assaulting us from all fronts. I purposefully went back, way back... all originals, all old, all good.
