I had a great time Saturday May 20th doing my third ever DJ/Selector set playing exclusively CTI / KUDU tracks on vinyl. I made a number of changes from the first two sets, in total now I have a potential pick list of 54-tracks.
Thanks to Body Music Longmont, Absolute Vinyl & Disco Witch for giving me a chance to demo/mix some 70’s classic jazz and jazz funk from Creed Taylor Productions.
I received a few requests for set-lists and a mix, so I’ve cobbled together some screen capture social media posts into a quick video. The mix follows and finally the set list. Because I only have a few CTI / KUDU singles and wanted to explore a complete range of tracks, my go-to albums were a number of the CTI Compilations. The compilations usually have the same mixes as the 45RPM/Singles, but not always. The setlist includes discogs links to the vinyl records used.
This also means there is less chance of damaging my original artist albums which are often harder to replace.
