I couldn’t think of a better way to end this month than with this great mix that comes to us by way of DJ Polished Solid. What a befitting tribute to the legacy of our AOM and a great introduction to DJ Polshed Solid’s work on the mix. If you caught this great article a couple weeks ago you’ve already witnessed her great work with words. Polished Solid hosts a weekly show live every Sunday from 4pm-6pm EST at http://mixlr.com/djpolishedsolid. Make sure to keep your ears open for mixes here on GFM from DJ Polished Solid.
