April 26: Songs of Summer with DJ Rashes!

It may not have been summer weather quite yet, but last Sunday DJ Rashes curated her mix aspirationally with a Songs of Summer theme! I can almost feel the sand between my toes:

Next week, DJ Debutante is conducting the DDPP train, which we are gonna ride all the way to GROOVEVILLE. Bring your mama(s)!

PS: There’s still time to vote for a DDPP shirt design! Check ’em out HERE.

Do Your Patriotic Duty and Vote for a DDPP Shirt Design!!

What to do in the 560 days, 2 hours, and 41 minutes until you get to vote for president? How about casting your ballot for one of these hot new shirt designs? BEHOLD:
Design 1:

ddpp_shirt_shoe           ddpp_shirt_shoe_sample

Design 2:

ddpp_shirt_boom              ddpp_shirt_boom_sample

Design 3:

ddpp_shirt_tape              ddpp_shirt_tape_sample

Here’s how it works: you cast your vote sometime between now and May 10, when we’ll announce our winning t-shirt design in class and via social media. Everybody is welcome to bring in a shirt or tote bag of their choice (new or old) and we’ll screenprint it for you for free at DDPP Twin Cities World Headquarters (aka DJ Low-Fi’s living room) and bring it back to the following session. We’re planning on a couple different color schemes and might shape up the chosen design for the final product, so feel free to add any comments that would make these great designs even better.
Vote by email (ddpptwincities [at] gmail [dot] com), Twitter (@ddpptwincites), Facebook, or IRL at our next session on May 10. A very special shout-out and thank you to DDPP Men’s Auxiliary Chair Pete G. for donating his formidable design and screenprinting skills.



Oh yeah, and if anyone wants to DJ May 10, the session is still up for grabs!

April 12: DON’T with DJ Ghostwriter!

As DDPP Twin Cities regulars know, DJ Ghostwriter is the resident master of the uniquely themed mix, and her playlist for April 12 was no exception. Who knew there were so many songs with the imperative to NOT do something?
DON’T stand so close to me!

DON’T turn around!

And most importantly, DON’T GO INTO THE WOODS!

“If you want it chopped off, take it to the woods.”

Okay, so the last one may have been my addition. DJ Ghostwriter, please DO send us the rest of your mix!
Next week, we have DJ Rashes giving us the Sounds of Summer — see you there! And in the meantime, just . . . DON’T.

March 8: DJ SameSame + March 28: DJ HeyYa

Hey y’all! We’ve had a wonderful March here at DDPP. On 3/8, we celebrated the debut of DJ SameSame. The mix kicked off with one of my favorite hits of the 90s:

(Trigger warning: CLOWNS)

For the cool-down, we were promised a ballad so epic that we’d have to fight to keep from belting along, and DJ SameSame delivered, hard:

Update: Here’s the mix — thanks, DJ SameSame!


Last Sunday, we were also treated to another great DJ debut: Say “Howdy!” to DJ HeyYa and her “Dance Around the House Party” mix:


Dj HeyYa’s mix definitely delivered some more 90s goodness:


Thanks everybody! Next session, DJ Ghostwriter curates for our dancing pleasure once again. Until next time . . .

I’m totally shaking his hand

February 8: Hanging on the Telephone with DJ Ghostwriter!

RING RING! It’s for you!

Last Sunday, DJ Ghostwriter gave us a buzz with a theme mix that was all about phones:

Not only was it a stellar playlist, but the Raffi song was also stuck in my head for twenty-four hours, so I felt the warm afterglow of DDPP all through the following Monday. Thanks, DJ Ghostwriter!

Next session (2/22), DJ Xplosion will rock our collective world with another dynamite mix! Until then, tide yourself over with some Bananaphone. It’s a phone you can eat.
