Breakin' Codes


What makes a good mix CD?

It depends on the listener,
but one thing I enjoy is when the DJ knows their music inside and out,
to where they're playing puzzles with the songs they play
and the records they scratch within.
The cover art, a play on the infamous DaVinci code,
suggests that perhaps there are codes and puzzles within.
In other words, one has to dig deeper than the surface to find the code.
Perhaps in this case, one has to go past the clever cover to see
if there is any trickery involved.

Let's get this out of the way right now,
John Doe of the 1200 Hobos is a master at what he does.
"Popular Fallacies (True Lies)" is a very intelligent mix CD
that not only shows his skills on the turntables,
but also shows how skilled you can be simply by knowing the music you play.
By doing this, he sets himself apart from the competition
and into a world that has been explored by a select few.

"Popular Fallacies (True Lies)" is the perfect example of how all mixes should be done,
but not everyone is going to go out of their way to add mental skill to their music.

This is on a much higher level.

On Another Level!
