What’s Your Zodiac Sign? These Mixes Are Astrologically Awesome.
At some of the earliest Hip-Hop parties, it was not uncommon for a party-rocking MC to get some crowd reaction by asking questions. In New York City, there were famously the gauges to see what borough was representing the loudest. There have been tricks like DJ Cash Money & Marvelous Marv’s “tell all the ugly people to be quiet,” or the “If you’ve got more than one dollar in your pocket, make some noise” re-popularized by DJ Kool. Up there with these traditions, is an MC running through zodiac signs to see who could be the loudest.
Jurassic 5’s DJ Nu-Mark is not an MC. The accomplished DJ and producer speaks with his hands. Currently, the Los Angeles, California native (who also launched Blend Crafters) is at work on a mix that isolates its artists by zodiac sign. Mark is four signs in, with Virgo releasing this month.
That mix features talented Virgos ranging from Eazy-E and Jay Electronica to Ludacris and Dave (f/k/a Trugoy) to Ray Charles and Roy Ayers. These mixes are short, fast-paced with lots of changes, blending, and planning. Whether you’re interested in seeing who shares your sign, you want to think about loved ones, or you simply want good music with a refreshed concept, press play.
#BonusBeat: While this mix is for the Virgos, Nu-Mark has previously made mixes for Geminis, Cancers, and Leos. Those are below:
Leo (featuring GZA, KRS-One, Mick Jagger, Fatboy Slim, Positive K, and others):
Cancer (featuring Missy Elliott, Guru, Kool G Rap, Syl Johnson, and others):
A two-part Gemini mix (featuring Prince, The Notorious B.I.G., Pete Rock, Lauryn Hill, Andre 3000, Kanye West, and more):
Stay tuned for more astrological mixes from the turntable master.
