    This sounds really cool.

    Too bad I’m not geeky enough to know how to use the software. What are the 32 songs?

    I can barely beatmix from my college after-hours party days, but the best thing about dance music is all the great re-mixes and production work people do.

    You DJ, Olsen?

    Oh, I just noticed this was posted over the winter. What was the winning song that got remixed? I’d like to listen to it.

    That is all.

    that’s a good question – we should follow up on it

    Yes, I ran one of the larger club and mobile DJ companies in SoCal in the ’80s, DJ’d clubs in the ’90s, and am now in semi-retirement, although I am sure I return again to radio at some point, which is a different kind of DJing.

    I am also half of Elliptical, for what that’s worth.
