Spring is in the air, flowers are blossoming, grass is green and the Sun is shining! Or so it seems if you’re living south of Canada. With all the great spring like weather we’ve received in Toronto this winter, seems like Mother Nature is trying to show her last winter efforts these last days of February. With spring arriving it also brings with it my annual Norouz Persian DJ mix. In its 6th edition, it promises to deliver the quality you expect from a DJ Borhan mix.
Divided into 3 parts, it packs in 51 songs on 1 CD. 44 Persian and 7 English Top40 songs. How did I come up with the 51-song selection list? A few factors come into play in how the Persian songs are selected:
1) I see which songs deliver well at my gigs.
2) Songs that are highly requested.
3) Posting songs on my Facebook Page, I review the feedback from comments and Likes.
4) I listen to the people. People tell me songs they would love on the CD and if suitable I comply.
5) I check reviews on sites like Bia2 and YouTube for other people’s feedback.
6) I personally like the song myself.
With all the different types of Persian music (Persian Pop, Old School, Persian House, etc.) I tried to get every genre in to satisfy everyone. Although I never repeat a song on a mix or performance (unless requested profusely) I did throw in a couple songs in this Persian DJ mix that were already in DJ Borhan 2011 Fall Persian DJ mix for a couple reasons: They are really good songs, they are songs that are new and they have been requested a lot throughout my gigs.
