Astral Travelling | Mixlr | DJ2tee


Ever wondered what it would be like to be a “live” virtual DJ? Well using Mixlr ( you can be. Had a shot at it last night with a four hour seventies jazz mix. Broadcasting into the aether is interesting, but by no means rewarding in terms of listener figures. After a slow start I managed to get up to two listeners, who I held on to for the duration of the broadcast. I know jazz is a minority taste, but please! I suppose it’s a case of putting yourself around a bit and building a following. My hope is that the broadcast was being picked up on Mercury or some far off constellation and the aliens were getting down and dirty to Pharoah Sanders.

For anyone interested you can hear the recording of the programme at:

For those interested the tracks played are listed below.

Finally big shout out to Black Classical (@rndqd ) and Ramps (@NigelRampant) for championing the music and for being amusing Twitter colleagues.

  1. Loved it – thanks for the devotion to the music! It was a buzz hearing some of my faves that I have dropped into my Mixcloud mixes.
    I’ll be promoting the showreel on Twitter to try and get some if the listens this deserves.
