Boston DJ Frank White continues to be one of the hardest hustlers in our city’s nightlife scene. With three gigs coming up this weekend, culminating in a Sunday night set at the Revere Hotel at the Boston Music Awards — where he’s once again nominated for DJ of the Year, in a varied group alongside Chris Ewen, Bianca Oblivion, Leah V, and Knife — White dropped a new chilled-out mix that’s a nice calm before the party storm.
His new mix, which you can stream and download via Soundcloud, mixes up r&B, soul, nu-disco, and pop, and even has a shout out (?!?!) from Michael McDonald near the 10-minute mark, right before the singer’s familiar 1982 jam “I Keep Forgetting” kicks in.
“Honestly I just wanted a break from the same ol’ hip-hop and reggae stuff I’m usually doing,” White tells Vanyaland, “and this is also one of many different styles of mixes I plan on putting out in the next few months.”
