I was super stoked to find out that my pal DJ Mel was the man responsible for all the great music and good vibes at the Obama election-watch party last Tuesday. (“Twist and Shout!” Let’s Stay Together!” “How Do You Like Me Now!” “Signed, Sealed, Delivered!”) Strangely enough, he also happened to DJ my 4th of July party with Cousin Cole a few years ago. A great American.
I interviewed Mel about DJ’ing a party for the President on one of the most important nights of his life over at Stereogum. You can find his full setlist (plus playlist in the comments section) up at Turntable Lab.
