MIX TO GO RADIO is up and running! We are excited about the launch of our internet radio station. It features new R&B, neo-soul, deep and soulful house, reggae remixes, club hits and dance anthems.
Much of what you will hear from day to day will be the best these formats have to offer. There is so much good music out there we can't imagine a radio station programming music any other way; no repeat plays of the same 40 songs all day. You will only hear the same songs 2x a day at the most-that is our version of "heavy rotation"-unless we are hosting DJ-oriented mix shows.
Speaking of DJs and their mix shows, you will find plenty of both here hence the name of our station, "Mix To Go Radio." It is just what it says it is: a radio station with mixes you can go with...or take wherever you go.
Our show schedule will be posted sometime this week-hopefully by the time most people read this post it will be on our radio station's page. If not bear with us as we get things together!
DJs: if you would like to join our roster you can submit your mix link to firstname.lastname@example.org. Freedom is the Music Director. Guidelines to how our shows are to be produced will be given when you respond.
Artists: See the above and submit links to your music, videos etc but especially your music. We add new music 3x a week-Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Team members: We are looking for radio personalities who would like to develop a show for one of our available time slots. For our first season we will begin with 6 DJ-oriented shows and 6 shows that involve personalities so there is room for you to grow!
In addition we'd like to bring on board a couple of publicists, ad sales people (2) and two program directors-one for our all-dance station Spin Radio FM (launching this winter) and our community and music station, Community Square Radio (launching next spring).
Advertisers: Get the word out about your products and/or services. Our audience consists of people who love music, travel, go to parties, clubs, live shows, sightseeing...pretty much what all of us do! Send a note about your interest in advertising to FrankTina07@gmail.com. One of us will get back to you with a rate package.
Listeners: You are the MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE. We welcome your feedback and hope you will call in during our live shows (we'll let you know when these take place right here, on our Twitter page (click there for the link and follow us). Your input is important to us and helps us to program music you like based on the formats we cater to.
We will be hosting a series of station launch parties around NYC and Brooklyn during the months of September and October, then beyond as time goes on.
Mix To Go Radio...the way music was meant to be heard!
As always...stay in touch and...#stayintune!
After 5+ years of the hottest mixes, parties, special events, artist coverage and community announcements I am excited to announce the last official post and closing of Mix To Go Magazine.
Why would I be excited about this? Because my reason for launching the magazine was to bring awareness to everything I am involved in-all of which includes the above.
It has been an exciting journey, but I am less and less able to focus on original music, artists I work with, shows and parties I want to produce and of course community efforts that have always been close to my heart.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed over the years...I hope you enjoyed the ride as much as I did!
Support my ongoing ventures that have been advertised in most issues of Mix To Go Mag from the beginning: DJ FREEDOM will continue to be a DJ; RHYTHM & SOUL RECORDS-the label that sponsored all of the promotional mixes featured in Mix To Go Magazine is now releasing completely original mixes and independent artists; AMPLIFIED VENUES continues to represent the finest venues for promoters and everyday people wanting to celebrate life in a nightlife environment and finally COMMUNITY SQUARE will soon return...
Check out our still-active Facebook (www.facebook.com/mixtogo), Mix Cloud (www.mixcloud.com/mixtogo), Reverb Nation (www.reverbnation.com/mixtogo) and Sound Cloud pages (www.soundcloud.com/mixtogo and www.soundcloud.com/rhythm-soulrecords).
Love and Peace,
Founder and Resident DJ
Mix To Go Magazine
This issue of MIX TO GO MAGAZINE is a change from what we normally do. We reversed the order of the sections ("In The Mix" is in the back and "Amplified" is in the front). We've also deleted "Community Sq" indefinitely and will return with "On The Go" (party and event listings) next issue.
This issue's focus is on the hottest venues in New York City. We selected a number of lounges and nightclubs that are in various neighborhoods and showed you the interior. Part of the reason for this is a new endeavor to present venues available for bookings. Notice how we left the names of the venus out; we don't want people calling and going to them without notice.
Why the addition of so much venue focus? Mix To Go Magazine is a promotional tool for Freedom & Martina to promote their businesses...and the businesses of their associates, period. If you go back to all of the issues you will notice the thread between us has always been there-and that of the promoters, DJs, event producers and community organizations we promote...all based on our own connections and relationships. Why not promote ourselves?? Wouldn't you?
You'll notice this issue is a double-month issue-first time in many months we've done this. It is time-consuming to construct each issue, and we don't promote Mix To Go Mag as a traditional magazine we sell. When we print it we give it away. Online subscriptions are just that-the issue is bundled into a PDF and we give it away to anyone who asks for it. Our "Mix To Go Massive" group on Facebook is filled with music people who get the benefit of the magazine in the day to day posts of not only Martina and I but also of our entire team-spread all over the world.
This is why you don't see a "staff" listing. We don't have one! When we did the turnover was too much to deal with because people see us as a stopover during their rise to stardom and/or success. We are good with that.
The schedule for the next series of issues is as follows (subject to change of course!)
#66 - September 2013
#67 - October/November 2013
#68 - December 2013 (Best of 2013/Mix To Go Awards Issue)
#69 - January/February 2014 (Rhythm & Soul Records Issue)
#70 - March/April 2014 (Miami Music Week Issue)
#71 - May 2014 (Dance Parade Issue)
#72 - June 2014 (Black Music Month Issue)
#73 - July/August 2014 (Summer Issue)
#74 - September 2014 (6th Anniversary Issue)
See you next month where-as you'll notice above-we feature the best of 2013 in our annual "Mix To Go Awards" focus. Thanks to the DJs, artists and music supporters who weighed in and for our film friends at Rotten Tomatoes for the #filmstogo winners...as well as the community activists who told us who the best charities and causes of the year are.

Mix To Go Magazine
Mix To Go Magazine has hosted hundreds of mixers, dance parties, launch parties, music festivals, live shows, lounge shows, parades, fashion extravaganzas...but we couldn't have done it with the help of the many nightclubs, lounges and event spaces in NYC and beyond.
Amplified Venues is now the official site locator for all of our event needs. We highly recommend you give them a call or send an email.
Their venues aren't just in NYC either. You can set up events in Washington D.C., Miami, Dallas, New Orleans, Las Vegas and Atlanta.
Finding the right place to have an event can be tiresome and grueling! We love to celebrate this thing called life but we are not fond of staying around to clean up. ;D So we utilize the services of Amplified Venues and tell them Mix To Go Magazine sent you!
