DJ Playcookie
DJ Playcookie is the alter-ego and frenemy of Danceslave. DJ Playcookie plays music that Danceslave can't help but dance to, but because they're the same person and can't do both things with complete abandon, they love each other but fight at the same time.

I have insane respect for skilled and amateur practitioners of various arts forms. I have to put a disclaimer to the lack of technical mixing & all DJ skills that I have. In the true sense of the word, I am not a DJ.
What I do have is the ability to be addicted to dancing and in turn have an ear for what may make you dance too. I love Music. Currently I have a preference for dance music from the African and South Asian Diaspora. I love to introduce people to sounds they may not have heard and re-introduce them to familiar sounds in a a way they may have not experienced.

I do this by DJ'ing house parties, and making mix cds/mp3 downloads to share.

The new age technology allows me to do this, so I do.
