For the past 4 months I’ve been working on a side project with the regulars here, an Infinite Flight Community Mixtape.
I started to get interested in DJing a few months ago, last December from what I can recall, and used a little app on my iPad simply for fun. Over time I got more interested in DJing and in March I brought up the idea in the Lounge to create a community mixtape, where members from the community drop their song requests in and I mix them together to make an hour long set. Well, little did I realize that at that time, it would be nearly impossible to create an hour long mix on an iPad app, so as my interest in DJing grew, so did my desire to invest in my own equipment. Last week, after months of saving, I dropped one grand on a Pioneer DJ controller and brought the Community Mixtape project back to life.
With dozens of song requests over the months ranging from rock, to pop, to rap, dubstep, and everything in between I finally finished up this project a few hours ago and I’m excited to share it with the community. I apologize in advance if some of the songs you requested are not in the mix. Since this is the first mix I’ve ever created, and I’m just starting to get familiar with DJing, some songs did not fit in with the upbeat vibes I was trying to keep throughout the mix. Rest assured, as I get better and learn more as a DJ I will make a mix full of the requested songs I didn’t use and share it personally in the Lounge.
Over the span of this project, I’ve learned so much as a DJ but still have lots of room to improve. However, during my time working on the mix, the music industry lost a huge icon, Chester Bennington. I decided to dedicate this mix to Chester, from Linkin Park, who inspired so many people and was known to be one of the greatest American rock/punk vocalists from the 90s & 2000s. I closed the mix with a mashup of one of his songs he sang, Somewhere I Belong.
So here it is, the final version of the community’s first annual mixtape.

The track list will be released once the video hits 250 views. Mix will be available for download at 500 views.
Note: The mix does contain some (but very minimal) explicit language. Even though the mixtape is fire, I’d recommend not blasting this at your grandma’s house unless she’s cool with it.
I plan on making a community mix once a year, where regulars can request songs for the mix and I’ll add them in. I also plan to create seasonal mixes focusing on a different genre each season. This summer’s theme will be deep house with some bass house mixed in. For fall, I’ll be releasing a Christmas themed mixtape. The following season’s themes will be announced later.
I hope you all enjoy the mix as much as I did creating it. Let me know how you like it or how I can improve in my future mixes. Until next year’s community mix… dj wipeout is out ✌️
