Mixtape Mondays: DJ Tara, DJ Evil Dee, DJ Rahdu

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.DJ Tara "Fly At Night"

We try to keep things varied on Mixtape Monday from week to week.  Many great mixes are being posted every day crossing all genres. This week we continue to give you a lil bit of this and a lil' bit of that with three great mixes from DJ Tara, DJ Evil Dee of Da Beatminerz and DJ Rahdu.

So without further ado...

DJ Tara - Fly By Night

Full disclosure: DJ Tara's my homie and has been for years. She's also a long time OKP vet. But don't assume a little nepotism is going to lead you to wackness.  On her latest mix "Fly By Night," DJ Tara steps away from the hip-hop & R&B sets she's known for in NYC and pays homage to her other favorite genre - house music. With tracks ranging from Azealia Banks' current anthem "1991" to Raze's club classic "Break 4 Love," Tara does an excellent job in keeping the energy high and your body in motion.

DJ Rahdu - 45 Minute Sessions 001: 86

DJ Rahdu's a firm believer that practice makes perfect. Rahdu recently made a promise to start practicing his DJ skills on a more regular basis, and out of one of those practice sessions came "86." A laid back mp from the last 15 years or so, "86" is great for unwinding at the end of a stressful Monday back on the job!
