The mixtape is a showcase for DJ mixes of any genre. I have an incredibly diverse catalog of music to choose from for each of my DJ mixes and events. Over the last 20 mixes, I’ve featured countless genres and will continue to keep this tradition going. While you may notice that certain genres like house, techno, disco, and 80s are prominent in the discography, I’ll be trying to diversify even more for these upcoming mixes. Today’s mix is a deep dive into new wave, 80s, 90s, and synthpop music.
If you lived through the 80s or 90s you might have gone through a goth or new wave stage. While I never dressed in all black or shopped at Hot Topic, I was always interested in the more commercial side of the music. Bands like Depeche Mode, The Cure, and New Order were on constant repeat from my cassette deck while I was in school. Today I love DJing this type of music for young and older crowds.

Upcoming Mixes and Booking Info
I’ve been extremely lazy about posting mixes but I’m hoping that changes. There’s at least 30-40 live sets from me (Don Stone) that I’ve recorded in Cambodia, Vietnam, and Thailand that still need to be uploaded.
Interested in booking me for an upcoming show? I’d love to collaborate on any events in Cambodia. I’m located in Siem Reap but open to travel around the country for the right events. You can contact me by using the contact form on OneZen or message me on Instagram or Facebook.
Album Artwork for The Mixtape 020
The artwork for today’s mix features a photo I took on the way to work back in 2018 in Clifton Park, NY. Image was taken with a Madventure 360 camera. Sometimes I think I miss the cold and snow, then I snap back to reality.
