I’m kickin’ it back to the old school ‘Cause I’m an old fool who’s so cool. Part 2

This is actually the first mix set I ever put on CD. I did it originally to play while working at Best Buy in the music department. Technically, we were to play the boring CD management would send down each month, highlighting whatever crap they were trying to push out the door that week. After listening to the same Mariah Carey song over and over and over, each of the employees in the music department decided to each choose 1 CD to put in the carousel.

I opted for my own brand of music, and brought this in one day. I was told it had to be fairly mainstream, since we were going to be subjecting unwitting customers to our eclectic tastes in music all day. This was right around the time when Party 93.1 showed up on the air, and started playing mainstream dance music. I loaded up most of the mix with stuff like, Insomnia, Move Your Body, Zombie 3000, and other slightly less annoying tracks. I also let each track play out for pretty much it’s entire length, which is the last of that style you’ll see in my sets. The beginning is pretty tame, but I usually drift off into some sort of breakbeat tracks toward the end.

The point of all this, is that I constantly had customers approaching me asking where they could find the CD that was playing. Unfortunately, they didn’t exactly stock my mix in the store. At the time, they didn’t even have an electronic music section, they just put anything remotely close at the end of the Rock section. So, being the little entrepreneur I was, I decided to bring in extra copies and sell them before or after work outside in the parking lot to customers who asked for it. Not exactly legal in most respects, but whatever, I was a kid in high school…
