There are 2 memories of Michael Jackson's music that stick out in my mind.
One is of me when I was 10 years old staying at the beach in Corpus Christi with my cousin. We played Thriller all night and just danced and danced until we fell down from exhaustion...
The second is from when I was dj'ing at a club back in the late 90's. I had been preparing for a gig playing house music, and I knew this was going to be a pretty big crowd I'd be playing to. I really wanted to do something different to shake things up, and I had one particular house track that actually went into a drum & bass breakdown in the middle of the track. I brought one other drum & bass record with me to mix with it, and brought my copy of Thriller with me as well. When I got to that point in my set, the drum & bass started out of the house track, and then I mixed into the other drum & bass record.
That's when the magic happened.
I threw on "Human Nature" over the drum & bass track and kept the beats lined up so that it played over...
The crowd went fuckin' nuts cheering and dancing.
I mixed back out of it into the house track by using the middle portion of the track to come back in, and later that night I had people asking me who that Michael Jackson remix was by...it was sweet :)
Whether you're a fan of his now or not, you most likely have some good memories of listening to Michael...I'd love for you to share them with me :)
Happy Friday everyone!
