It’s been a long time DJ BeTray Fam!!!  I’ve missed mixing for you, but you know how it goes… sometimes life can take us away from what we love to do so we can focus on what we need to do.  But I’m back!  I thought it best I get back in the swing of things by paying homage to the music of my city.  This Sounds Like Washington Vol. 3 is full of DC classics.  While the music spans from the 70’s to the 2000’s the theme of this mix is consistent.  There is a longing for love and unfulfilled companionship expressed in each of these tunes.  As with all of the Sounds Like Washington mixes, most of the music here is inspired by the incomparable sound of WHUR FM.  For many of you listening from outside the Washington area, some of this music will be new to you because it’s not played anywhere else.  As always thank you for your support.  While it’s almost been a year since my last mix, you all have kept the traffic and good feelings flowing on this site.  Thank you, thank you and as always… Love!

I’m so excited to present Sounds Like Washington Vol. 2 to you.  Ten years ago I compiled the first Sounds Like Washington to keep me company when I lived far away from D.C. and missed listening to the exclusive sounds of this City.  After returning home, I was inspired to create Volume 2.  Like with Volume 1, some of these songs are regularly played on D.C.’s adult contemporary radio stations, others should be.  Please enjoy these soothing sounds that go best with the Washington skyline in the distance — but will make you feel good wherever you are.

I hope this smooth soothing compilation will inspire and calm your spirit just as it has mine time and time again.  This sexy slow tempo compilation is my favorite.  In 2001, I compiled “Sounds Like Washington Vol. 1”.  After living on the other side of the country and away from Washington, DC radio, I missed the music that was unique to this great City.  The title “Sounds Like Washington,” is taken from the WHUR radio catch phrase, which I love because it’s so true; its music does sound like Washington and so much of it is literally played nowhere else.  So yes, most of the songs on this compilation are WHUR classics; some just feel like DC to me.  Many of my friends have enjoyed this CD for years… I hope you will too.
