Cupid Hunt 2009 – Lights, camera, slow jams

It’s that time again. Once again, it’s time for the annual Cupid Hunt Podcast Event masterminded by the one TGrundy over at Rhythms In Black Satin(RIBS, for short). This is the event where a group of music podcasters & DJ’s all release mixes with the theme related to Valentine’s Day and the subject of love. Information about this annual affair can be found, here. This year, I decided to join the fun with a mix of my own.  It was no easy task even when knowing what I’ve wanted to do since last year’s Cupid Hunt. Needless to say, I encourage you to go check out every mix that’s being put out for this event. Most of the people in my Blogroll will be providing mixes for this event. The master list of mixes is being kept here. It will be updated as the weekend progresses. Here are some of the ones that I know are posted already:

DJ Grantlove Pt1, Pt2, & My love, my life, my wife


Todd Kelley

Anji Bee @ the Chillcast

DarrenKeith @ My love for music

Friday Night Dance Party

Fave @ the Friday Favecast


EJ Flavors




I would like to thank TGrundy for opportunity to take part in this event. That said:

I’ve always loved making slow tapes. You either had a mood setting mix, straight baby making music, or some combination of the two. I wish I hadn’t gotten out of doing them, or mixes period. That’s another story.  Right now, it’s about a soundtrack. As in from a movie. Back in the 90’s, it seemed like most every urban themed or starred movie had a great soundtrack with some notable slow songs attached to it. Sometimes, the soundtracks were better than the movies themselves. I thought I’d make a mix that incorporated some of those songs in my mix. So with out further ado, here it is.

    Hey look at you… you go boy! I likes the movie theme to the playlist. I KNEW there was a closet DJ hiding in that head of yours. Welcome to the club, my friend, and thank you so much for participating in THE EVENT this year (and next year, and the year after that, and… *smile*)

    1. Hi, The link to Calinative’s site has been fixed. Thanks for the catch.

      Thanks Tgrundy & EJ for your comments & support. 🙂

  2. You pulled For Real AND Allure out for this one? *dap* And I don’t remember hearing the London Jones track. This works out beautifully.

  3. WHOA … If I didn’t know better, I would SWEAR you’ve been in my head or in my computer. If you were, you’d see a playlist in my iTunes for pretty much the exacty same concept and playlist (give or take a few tracks). So you know you gets high5 on this! That is so funny and amazing! Love the music!
