I had the honor to help raise funds for the SF Bay Area Queer Nightlife Fund by pulling together 5 DJs to spin on a Sunday afternoon for people worldwide. Along with Philip Grasso, Stefanie Phillips, Gregg Sueyoshi, and Phil B, I spun Classic Vocal Tea for an hour for a virtual audience of over 300 on Facebook Live, Twitch, and Zoom. The event raised over $7000!

Bound to happen, that a second mix would come out with all this free time. Honestly, most of these tracks were supposed to be on the last mix, but I decided to ramp up the BPM and these are the tracks on the lower end of the beats spectrum (averaging 120). Inspired by the Billboard Top 50 Dance Club list, I added a few favorites including album tracks by Harry Styles and OMD.

1) Adore You // Harry Styles
2) Good Man (Dave Aude) // Hilary Roberts
3) Drunk on You (Dave Aude) // Betty Reed
4) Love Hangover 2020 (Larry Peace Downtown Vocal) // Diana Ross
5) Hard to Love (Johan K) // Da Buzz
6) Don't Leave Me Lonely (Purple Disco Machine) // Mark Ronson (feat Yebba)
7) Stupid Love // Lady Gaga
8) Forever Yours (Avicii Tribute) // Kygo (and Sandro Cavazza)
9) Giving It Up (LA Rush) // The Terri Green Project
10) Dance Monkey (Liam Keegan) // DJ Alfonso de Vic (feat Tones & I)
11) How To Love Me (Elektrik Disko) // Kid Creme (and Jolyon Petch)
12) Don't Go // Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark
13) I Don't Search I Find (Kue's Studio 54) // Madonna
14) Feels Like Love (LA Rush) // Raquela
15) Used to Love (Jimi Hyde) // Martin Garrix & Dean Lewis

I finally found enough songs to put a mix together! It's tough these days... EDM is huge (and not my style), and there's a lot of good (but slow) songs out there that just don't make you want to move. I wanted songs that would wake me up! I dug back a few years for some gems I'd never heard before, including both Owl City songs, Hola from Dario G, and Shakira's World Cup anthem that she sang at the Super Bowl (I was like "whatever happened to that song?").

Thank the stars for producers like Purple Disco Machine, Barry Harris, Division 4, Matt Consola, and Kenny Hayes to give us groovy beats to shake our tucchus to! And yes, I know I've already played "Be Alright" in a previous mix, but The Perry Twins' remix is just too good to only share once!

1) Shine Your Way // Owl City and Yuna
2) (I'm Gonna) Love Me Again (Purple Disco Machine) // Elton John (and Taron Egerton)
3) Live It Up (Original) // Luca Debonaire, Kaippa
4) Don't Start Now (Purple Disco Machine) // Dua Lipa
5) Memories (TGID and Barry Harris Club) // Maroon 5
6) I Feel Love (PO Intro Edit) // Sam Smith
7) Pieces (Stonebridge & Damien Hall) // Avery Raquel
8) Hola (Extended) // Dario G
9) Waka Waka (This Time For Africa) (Cutmore Club) // Shakira (feat Freshlyground)
10) Be Alright (Perry Twins Extended) // Dion Todd (feat Maya)
11) Alice's Door (Aurosonic Extended) // Sleepthief & Zoe Johnston
12) Faith (Division 4, Matt Consola) // Galantis (and Dolly Parton feat Mr. Probz)
13) Umbrella Beach (Kenny Hayes) // Owl City

Hey there, sorry... life happened and the month of May got away from me. Not only that, but I feel that June is going to be super busy, so I'm pre-releasing a June mix to free up some time. Let me highlight a few standouts: The Calum Scott track is magnificent, jumping right into a 7th Heaven mix (constantly uplifting). I've chosen lots of my favorite producers for this mix, including Eric Kupper, Moto Blanco, F9 (Freemasons), Kue, and Barry Harris (offering a delightful mashup of Jonas Brothers and Eurythmics). Have a great start to your summer, and I'll see you back here in July, I promise! xoxo

April 2019: Roy's Mix, Vol. 3

If you know me, then you know that I prefer my music happy and uplifting. I gotta say, this is some seriously happy stuff (at 134 bpm and higher). Uplifting, melodic vocals... the kind of trance you'd cry over (depending on your state of mind LOL). These tracks take me back to the late 90s / early 00s when I would play music for (and with) my San Francisco family. So not only is this mix for Roy, but it is also for my brother, Gregory Cox Byfield.

I have to credit the blending of the two Red 5 remixes to super-dj Julian Marsh, who brilliantly did it over 20 years ago... and I still think it's amazing.

1) Can't Live A Day (Tiesto) / Avalon
2) You're Beautiful (Original) / Madagascar
3) Seven Cities (Armin van Buuren Vocal) / Solarstone
4) Outlaw (Space Brothers) / Olive
5) Club For Life '98 (Solar Power) / Chris & James
6) Toca Me (Club) / Fragma
7) Everytime (Mike Koglin) / Lustral
8) Honey (Chicane Club) / Billie Ray Martin
9) Lift Me Up (Striking Man & THK Club) / Red 5

House Music can be for everyone, with the right sound. Me? I gravitate towards melodic, uplifting vocals, beautiful accompanying instruments, and a groovy beat. That means sifting through a lot of tracks and choosing ones produced by amazing artists like The Reflex, Michele Chiavarini, Spencer Morales, and Mousse T, among others.

I love this mix... there's a lot of love in this mix. Wonderful vocals from Sharon Phillips, Andre Espeut, and Tasha Lara'e, just to name a few... I hope this mix moves you, too. #sharethemusic

1) Maybe In May (feat. Sharon Phillips) (The Reflex Revision) // Mousse T.
2) The Sweetest Pain (John Morales M+M Vocal Remix) // S.E.L. & Gary Hudgins
3) Addicted (feat. Calvin Lynch) // Allovers
4) Make Me (Go Crazy) (OPOLOPO Remix) // Change
5) Caught Up // Michele Chiavarini & Andre Espeut
6) Melodie (feat. Cleah) (Mousse T's Extended Disco Shizzle Remix) // Mousse T.
7) The Big Throwdown (Yam Who? Remix) // Get To Know
8) What Da Funk // Moodena
9) At Midnight // Sartorial
10) I Need Your Lovin (feat. Tasha Lara'e) (Spen & Thommy's Strings of Love Remix and DJ Spen & Gary Hudgins Original Mix) // Spencer Morales
