Return from MacDowell/Winter 2010-11 Mix

I'm just now getting back from The MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire, where I was fortunate enough to spend a month ostensibly completing a draft of my novel manuscript, while also eating and napping as much as I could. I also DJ'ed two Colony dance parties. It was pretty incredible -- and, surprisingly productive -- and I couldn't begin to describe how grateful I am for basically everyone's generosity there.

At any rate, here is a mix I put together for some of the friends I made at the Colony. (Not really for dancing, more like "energetic recreation and socializing"): Part 1 and Part 2.
