Hi there disco boys and girls-
This month, I wanted to revisit one of my favorite podcast series - SESSIONS. I started doing this series because I wanted to collaborate with DJ's I love and respect. My first podcast was with DJ Brian Maier in January (you can download the podcast here), and this month, I'm working with another amazing guy - DJ Russ Rich.
Russ and I have a very similar style - we both love vocal, progressive, and upbeat dance music. I've been fortunate to DJ with Russ quite a few parties together, but I also love hearing him spin. He has an amazing energy and connection with the crowd, and you can always tell he's enjoying the music just as much as everyone dancing.
The intent of our podcast was to take two hours of T-dance music we both love and create a uplifting journey for you to enjoy. Everything about our podcast was a team effort. From the song choices, to the order and the mixing, to even the cover art, this entire project was an amazing collaboration.
Without further ado, I present to you:
