The 3rd Annual iHeartRadio Music Festival is only one week away and the 2013 lineup is one of the best to date, showcasing some of music's biggest names, both past and present. Smirnoff's official DJ and Master of the Mix Champ, DJ JayCeeOh is among the artists scheduled to take the stage in Las Vegas September 20-21. To whet the nation's appetite he created a mixtape featuring select artists performing like Phoenix, Drake, Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, Katy Perry among many others. The result is an audio explosion of popular hits masterfully crafted to serve as your pre-festival, pre-game soundtrack.
I caught up with the talented winner of Master of the Mix season three early this summer and when I spoke with him he openly relayed, "I’m such a perfectionist with everything I do and try. I give 100% on everything I do." The 'iHeartRadio Festival Mix' he produced is no exception to his iron-clad work ethic, combining elements of EDM and Pop and looping them over a bass-line that is as addictive as it is hypnotic.
JayCeeOh admits one of his industry muses is Diplo in part because of his eccentric production style. He told me, "I’m inspired a lot by Diplo and what he’s done in terms of being a taste-maker and grabbing different sounds and styles from different genres and making them acceptable and accepted by the public," continuing, "I feel like I really have an ear for that and that I’m able to take things that the mainstream might not like and convert them to something that they would like."
Get in on the iHeartRadio Festival early and download JayCeeOh's mix' for free by visiting his Soundcloud page or clicking the link below! It is a mix that promises to earn the honor of your replay button time and again and is best summarized as an audio-gasm. Smirnoff's DJ promises there will be plenty more tunes coming too, "I have music that I’m going to be releasing steadily for the rest of the year from mixtapes, to remixes, to original productions."
For those attending the festival in Vegas next weekend be sure to catch JayCeeOh's set at the festival Village Saturday afternoon which is located on a 15-acre parking lot adjacent to the MGM arena. And check back in here for exclusive coverage and recaps of the event!
