‘In The Mix’ and the sound that defined the decade

Every Saturday evening we set the vibe for the city of Milwaukee from 10 p.m. to midnight. We mix up the hottest sounds from the electronic dance music scene. In The Mix with DJ Kenny Perez prides itself on bringing to the forefront some of Milwaukee’s most talented DJs and producers as guests on the show.

Stream the mixes below and follow me on all social media @djkennyperez.

DJs and Producers of this decade brought us magical, energetic, and meaningful sounds that still titillate my ears. I am not here to bore you on the question, “Is EDM dead?” or “EDM blah blah blah?” There have been countless articles, interviews and videos loving and hating this decade of sound. The question I pose is, “Did you have fun?” My answer is simply, HELL YEAH! I had so much fun going to festivals and will still have fun moving into 2020. At this very moment, as I type I cannot stay still because Calvin Harris and Florence + The Machine are blaring in my V-Modas. The 2010s gave us heart-pounding bass, blood warming melodies, and buildups that would make any millennial cry. It was a time to rejoice and spread the love at a major festival or congregate at a packed club. Will the new decade brings us a new innovative sound? Will the next generation of music lovers have as much fun as we did? Time will tell. These two hours were an homage to a time we all just wanted to let loose and have fun.
