SELECTA (N): "Originating in Reggae/Dancehall music, one who selects and passes the records to the DJ that is playing them on the soundsystem."
Today, A DJ and a Selecta are considered one in the same, but the concept still applies: Taste makes, breaks, and defines a DJ. From playing live to recording a mixtape, a responsible selecta will balance his or her's own taste with the taste of the crowd. It's a delicate rope to walk because an imbalance of your taste and what the crowd wants can make for a train wreck of a set.
But then, there are those certain sets were as selecta, we are allowed to be a bit selfish and play whatever our heart desires. And sometimes, people completely trust their DJ and go along for a enjoyable ride. But only a selecta with pristine taste can go completely rogue.
With all this said, this is my first mixtape were I was COMPLETELY selfish lol! Some of my personal favorite Album Cuts, B-Sides, Remixes, Mash-Ups, New Shit, and rare finds. 2 hours... 60 tracks. Had to hook up the homie Ham with the double disk mix, lol! To conclude the summer madness, all aboard the SELECTA train... Honor Flow Productions Soundsystem style.
