Hi There, Welcome, and Happy New Year!

With the dawning of 2012, I've decided to set up a new site. This blog is intended to be a permanent repository and hub for all DJ not-I productions past, present and future.

With my semi-retirement from mashup-making to pursue original avenues, I am assembling all my previous blends/mashups/bootlegs into CD-length volumes as a kind of chronological Collected Works series. In addition to the original mixes you may know and love, each volume will contain several unreleased tracks, including some instrumentals, radio versions, and remixes, as well as complete artwork and liner notes. I plan to release one two-disc volume per month. Volume One is on the way.

I'll also be (re-)posting the various DJ not-I-related material that has accumulated over the years, including mashup videos, mixes, podcasts, remixes, and miscellanea.

In the meantime, you may wish to check out my Facebook page, my Twitter feed, or my Youtube channel.

Thanks for visiting. Here's wishing you all the best for the coming year!

Love ~I
