OUR POP-OUT PLAYER
Back in the day people used to record mixes off the radio. Today, we do it for you.
If you miss any of the mixes, we upload them to the website every Tuesday. Once we upload the mixes, we post the link to listen to them on-demand on Facebook page so make sure you’ve LIKED our page. The mixes are also available on-demand in our APP.
Each mix is uploaded with the on-demand player, the tracklist (when provided) and information about the DJ. The mix show page also features

All the mixes feature classic dance, throwbacks, old school, classic house, freestyle, disco, and funk of the 70s, 80s, and 90s.

Mixmaster Einstein is originally from Gary, IN. He grew up a house head. He studied and learned the basic techniques of mixing by listening to DJs like our Mickey Mixin’ Oliver and other members of the Hot Mix 5 when our sister network was at 1390 AM and 102.7 FM here in Chicago. Now he’s spreading the love of house music all over the world every weekend here on The Beat.
He came to us by submitting mixes perfectly to us each week. Once an opening came along, his work was so good, so diverse and so on-point, we moved him right into residency status on our Saturday Night Live Ain’t No Jive Chicago Dance Party mix show.
