About These Mixes

I used to collect cassette tapes from Washington DC area DJ’s in the late 1990’s. People like DJ Geometrix and the Trooperz, Scott Henry, and Lexus King influenced me to start recording my own mixes after I had begun collecting records. I started writing just charlie on them and the name stuck. Some of the mixes I made between 1999 – 2008 are here for free download.
I used to distribute the mixes below on CD (originally burned and printed individually), now they live on the internet. Download them and listen to them at home or on the go in MP3 format. Most of these mixes are recorded at 128kbps and are about an hour in length. Tracklists and cover art below, too. I hope you have as much fun listening to them as I did assembling and recording them.
