Welcome to our new weekly segment dedicated to the DJ. Our first feature mix is by Spontaneous Mixx from St. Louis, MO. Learn more about him below and listen this great mix below.
Born and raised in St. Louis, Spontaneous Mixx has always been a music enthusiast. Even as an adolescent, when most his age were just listening to music, Spontaneous was keen on observing production styles and musical influences. He became interested in the art of mixing songs while still in high school and started learning to spin in 2000 when a close friend bought a set of turntables. In the early 2000s, Spontaneous began subcontracting work for a local DJ company, and taking random gigs with other DJ friends until the mid 2000s when he started to venture out on his own.
At the beginning of his mix-show career, Spontaneous was a hip-hop DJ, but has since evolved to appeal to a larger audience. He now spins the hottest top40 hits, mixed with electronic and pop music. He is, as his namesake suggests, a very spontaneous DJ, in that he does not perform pre-practiced, pre-arranged mix sets, and no one night sounds like the other.
