Avery & Johnson Lee :: A Little Bit Higher (live on 4 turntables)


It's been 11 years to the month since this infamous 4 turntable live mix.  I thought it was definitely due for a repost or in DJ style a re-rewind...In fact there's history behind this recording from March of 2000. This mix was the very first collaboration between Avery & Johnson. After realizing what great musical chemistry they had between them, they soon formed a partnership which you now know as District Soul. So to say it was an important mix in lives of both us would be an understatement.

The playlist below is a little more complicated than a typical one. What we did was represent what songs were being played during each track of the original CD that we distributed. Obviously since this is a continuous audio file format you won't have the advantage of using track numbers but it should be good enough as a general guide.
