Deep House/Tech House/Electronic/Pop.

This is probably my best ever electronic/house mix in terms of mixing and technique. Pure house! I've been djing around half my life and doing it only because I love it. This mix is what it's all about. 

True Cost of This Mix?

1 x Denon DJ MCX8000 ($2,000)
1 x MacBook Air ($1,500)
10+ Hours finding, listening to, optimizing, analyzing, rewriting, organizing tracks into playlists ($1000) 
20 Years of spinning tunes in spite of not making any money (?)
Being able to listen to a mix that you recorded based on your own tracks and passion = PRICELESS!
