I appreciate the fact that there are still a few of you keeping the faith and checking this site from time to time and were proactive enough to give me a heads up that the site was down. It took a minute to get the computers 'puting and resolve the issue, but thanks to an assist from Zer0 C00l or whoever is manning the support desk, we finally got it fixed. In celebration of that fact, I am finally taking the time to upload a mix I've been holding on to for almost a year.

As some of you are aware, after many years devoted to bachelorhood one lucky woman finally made an honest man of me. It was an amazing experience, but I will caution anyone who thinks they are capable of dealing with high stress situations - something I once foolishly described myself as - that organizing a destination wedding involving guests flying in from multiple continents will break even the most level-headed amongst you.

One of the highlights for me was organizing the music for the wedding. We hired a dj for the reception itself, but for the cocktail hour prior to that I dusted off the turntables and put together a mix. The demographics of the attendees were pretty varied - Americans, Jamaicans, Ghanians, Turks, and Indians - so I pulled in a mix of songs from Motown to Afropop to Soca to mid 90's rap. Here's the link to the mix on soundcloud:
