The Mixtape Vol. 91

A 2-hour set of house jams by DJ and producer Jamz

Jameel Randeree is a freelance writer and blogger who recently moved back to Durban's North Coast. Musically, Jamz has been DJing since 2007 and Producing Music since 2010.

When living in Johannesburg Jamz was known for his marathon sets at News Café, playing alongside Lady Lea at Arcade Empire in Pretoria, and his long lasting residency at Cappello.

Those sets were pretty eclectic covering everything from rock to hip hop, however, his first love is house music, specifically DJs like Claptone and Jody Wisternoff, as well as our local heroes Kyle Watson and Black Coffee.

This is evident in the mix Jamz has put together for The Way of Us, whcih is the first mix he's made since moving to Durban, and something he credits with getting him through a quite difficult time in his life.

“It was hard to say goodbye to good friends. Through these tough times I realized that DJing and listening to music is what I live for. Initially I didn't want to continue making mixes but this is what I'm meant to do.”

Read our short Q&A with Jamz after the jump.

You blog, what do you write about and where can we see your work?

I write reviews for my blog called 2 Minute Reviews and I’m a huge Batman fan and have a blog dedicated to Batmancomics and culture. 

Tell us about the mix you’ve made for The Way of Us.

These are my favorite Deep House tracks that I have been listening to since my arrival back home.

What do you want listeners to get out of this?

I hope they enjoy it as much as I did mixing it. And most of all I hope it enlightens you like it enlightened me.

Anywhere else we can hear you?

I have released music to european record labels in the past and the last track I made is here on Soundcloud.
