CAMP GABBY Intermission mix for RECESS New York

A few months ago, jet-set lifestyle & cultural marketing guru, Khairi Mdnor, asked me to be the first female DJ to present a 30-min summer mix for the launch of his hip, recreational lifestyle website, Recess New York.  Having booked top underground DJs at subMercer, which I also ran for three years, I was fortunate enough to have always been turned onto the best, new electronic bangers by the roster of deft talent that graced our decks.  Rather than putting out a straight, current electronic set, however, I decided to revisit past summer anthems of my youth that shaped and influenced much of my musical sensibilities.   Despite the limited time frame, I wanted the mix to still be representative of my longer DJ sets, which -- like my travels -- are always unmapped journeys, weaving through an array of genres that inspire me, but which hopefully also flow cohesively.  This mix made me really nostalgic for summers past and was an exercise in charting and appreciating my own musical development over the years.  Click on the image below to enjoy a piece of me!
