Shining Bright for Your Mind – DJ Gal VanIZed Mix

Shining Bright for Your Mind by Sheri Gal Vanized Zampelli on Mixcloud

Music is my life-long obsession and things like iTunes and iPods only kicked it up to an all-time high. This mix is what I was listening to instead of top 40. Funk, Hip Hop, Punk and Soul from the 70’s-present. Most of it never on the radio or only on after midnight or on independent radio. A mix for thinking and feeling. Listen with headphones or in your own private space and see if it makes you galvanized.

Valentine’s Day DJ Gal VanIZed Mix Blends Audio and Images to Create a Soundtrack for Peace, Love and Unity

On Valentine’s day, I was inspired to sit down and record a DJ Mix that blends audio and images to create a soundtrack for Peace, Love and Unity. It’s about Love and things I Love. It’s about embracing the past, being in the present and looking forward to the future with enthusiasm.

It’s for people I love.

Play it when you’re ready to party or take a break from monotony. Use it to Galvanize your mind, pump you up or get you inspired.

This mix includes brand smokin’ new dubstep from the UK via as well as some soul, funk, Drum and Bass and even a little punk rock. It also includes a track I just created last week using jungle sounds from a Lenny De Ice track (We are I.E.) and sound snippets from a rousing sermon by Ahman titled Mental Fast. Here’s the track all by itself if you’d like to give it a listen.

Get in the groove and get ready to move at The Church of Beats, Rhythms and Raps and enjoy a replay of the Valentine’s Day Service performed by Rev. DJ Gal VanIZed. If you can’t see the player below, click here to hear the mix.
