Even though it’s already mid-August and fall is fast approaching, I still want to stay in summer mode as long as possible. Ever since the beginning of the summer, creating a DJ mix has always been on the back of my mind since I knew many of my online friends and readers have never seen me play a DJ gig before. If I posted anything related to DJ-ing on my Instagram, for example, I’d receive feedback with requests to post videos of me DJ-ing or uploading a DJ mix to showcase my skills. So I thought it was about time I created a mix in order to achieve just that.

あっという間に8月後半に突入し、夏の終わりも迫ってきてますが、まだまだサマーモードを満喫したい!そう思う今日この頃。初夏からDJミックスを作らないとなぁと思いながら6月も7月も過ぎてしまい・・周りの友達やブログ/SNSの読者など、まだDJプレイを見てもらってない人にDJをやってる動画、もしくはミックスをアップロードして欲しいという声が多かったのもあり、今回初めてDJミックスをMixcloudにて公開しました。

Chill Out It’s Summer Mix” is exactly how it’s meant to sound – chill, easy listening for people of all ages, whether they grew up in California or not. I’ve included a combination of genres in this 1 hour mix, including dance, indie dance, house, funk and R&B. I chose these particular songs because to me, they all have a touch of summer whether it be in the sound, the rhythm, the vocals or the lyrics. If you need some mood music to take you back to that vacation you went on earlier in the summer, this is the mix for you. So put your headphones on and sit back, chill out and enjoy.

Chill Out It’s Summer Mix」はその名前の通りのミックスです。チルでスムーズな、そして誰でも聴きやすいように作ってみました。南カリフォルニアに行ったことのない人でも、少しでもLAスタイルのサマーを感じることができればいいなと思います。この1時間のミックスにはdance、indie dance、 house、 funk やR&Bのジャンルを複合し、夏をイメージさせるサウンド、リズム、ボーカルや歌詞を選曲しました。夏休み中に行った旅行を思い出したいという人には持ってこいのミックスです。ヘッドフォンを付けて、リラックスしながらenjoyして下さい♪

I still think it is so cool that you are also a DJ! Summertime jams are so much fun because they take you away to all the fun memories and adventure you had while listening to those tunes. I am all about the different music genres you mixed in and will enjoy this mix till Fall! Beautiful photos of you on the beach and the bikini rocks! Enjoy your last few weeks of summer babe! xoxo, Christine

It’s Friday night when I’m reading this and your mix couldn’t have come at a better time! I LOVE what I heard at a quick glance at it and will have it on in the background for the rest of the night. Do I need to mention the stunning pics? Jeez, I know why you’re both a successful model AND a DJ as you’re amazing at both!

Samantha you have incredible talent and I love this chill mix you’ve made! I can’t wait to soak in the hot tub listening to this since it’s still deathly cold wintertime in Sydney. Its great that you took the time to create something not only for yourself to accomplish but also so your loved ones could gear your DJ work!

Okay, I am pleasantly surprised at how amazing this mix is! The DJ style in the south is so different, and I’m not really a fan of it. Move to Texas and DJ please! I have put off listening to it and should have played it much earlier than now. It’s the perfect mix to listen to while I work. I would love to use your music in my video tutorials if you’ll let me 🙂
