I was particularly proud of this set. It had some of my best transitions to date. And I really tried to stretch myself to connect the dots of as many different records and genres as I could.

On the walk to the gig, I started a note on my phone of a bunch of songs that would string together well, and while I didn’t end up using quite everything on the list, it was a super helpful starting point.
