“Sorry, I cannot hear you, I’m kinda busy…”

On Sunday I served as the DJ on Virgin America’s float during the San Francisco Pride parade. This was my second year doing so, and it’s always really fun but also a real challenge – the float is bouncing up and down from everyone dancing, plus there’s stop/start forward motion as the float moves along. I compare it to DJing on a trampoline. You can watch the float in motion here (thanks Bob).

I wanted to keep the vibe really up and fun and play songs people would know, but maybe not mixes they’d heard before. This mix was recorded after-the-fact as a sort of souvenir, and was pulled from the original longer set, keeping the songs in their same running order.

“I’m gonna take you out tonight, I’m gonna make you feel alright…”

It’s now been 29 months since my last Kiss The Future mix. On one hand I feel like I should talk a little bit about what I’ve been doing and why I’ve chosen these songs, but instead I think I’ll let the music do the talking.
