Glam Life 3

While it’s still winter and the cold maintains it’s grasp on so many of us, the bright side is the amount of daylight per day is slowly growing and the spring time vibe season is right around the corner. In an effort to capture that feeling a bit early, today’s #TBT revisits Eleven and Ayres’ Glamorous Life 3 mix that’s heavily rooted in the vibetank. 80’s R&B and Boogie classics are the modus operandi here and the listen alone should provide you with a pleasant jolt of warmth. Stream and download links are below.

#TBT DJ Ayres – Best Of Young Jeezy



Ayres Best Of Jeezy

Young Jeezy’s catalog has been essential since “Dem Boyz” & “So Icy” and The Snowman arguably has the best ad libs in rap.  For our TBT this week, we revisit when Ayres pulled the power move back in 2008 and knocked out this Best Of Young Jeezy mix with 34 essentials from the early half of Jeezy’s catalog. Time machine turn up here like woah.

#TBT DJ Ayres – Sunshine at Midnight



Ayres here, please allow me to interrupt the regularly scheduled program to pat myself on the back a little. Here’s a mix I did for Malibu Rum early last year, and then promptly forgot about.  Nearly 70,000 streams later, it topped Mixcloud’s Best of 2014 list.  To celebrate, I’ve uploaded a “Director’s Cut” of the mix – a little bit different second version which was rejected in favor of the original version I gave them.
