Check Out This Smart Mix

2012_08_smart_mix_08_guidry.jpg We've always known Chicagoist writer Jake Guidry was a talented guy so we're pleased to see others are noticing that as well. In addition to being a smart and insightful writer, often covering the EDM scene, Guidry has also been honing his skills and gigging around town as a DJ. Recently dance club legend Smart Bar asked Guidry if he would contribute to their Smart Mix series, and he took them up on their offer.

The mix he ended up constructing is a little darker than you might expect. While it certainly fits on the dancefloor there's an introspection to its flow that should satisfy both those with fancy footwork and those that just want to lay back and sink into the music.

Check it out and let us—and Jake—know what you think. We're digging it, that's for sure. If you want to hear Guidry work his skills in person his next performance is at The Whistler on August 31

You can see the tracklist for the mix here.
