After ALL the technical difficulties, we have FINALLY got the mixtape loaded up and ready for release! Again, I have collaborated with a National Recording Jazz Musician named James Lloyd of Pieces of a Dream, who just so happens to be my Father, on this project! He is aPHENOMENAL keyboard player that I have anticipated working with for a LONG time now!

Working with him was a wonderful experience that not only strengthened our bond musically, but also emotionally. I’m sure when you heard a DJ was collaborating with a Jazz Musician, you had NO idea what to think! Hopefully, this project broadens your musical horizons and makes you step outside your comfort zone to try new things!

P.S. If you like what you hear, tell EVERYONE you know!! This project is for all age groups and nationalities! Well, almost all age groups, LOL! Let’s become LEGENDARY!

    I really appreciate your commitment to customer service. Over two hours after it was supposed to come out, you tweeted the link. When you came across technical difficulties, you didn’t quit, you persevered. That quality will take you far. I am a proud friend and even more humble fan of the brand. This mixtape marks you stepping into a new dimension!

    Unexplainable, the feeling I have for a certain someone right now. She always wanted to slow dance and and Im matching every step… she isnt even in the same neighborhood. Bandcamp created a fantasy through a mixtape. #CS3 #CLASSIC #EPIC #UNMAGINABLE

    Good look!

    All I can really say is that this was beyond great! Creativity to the highest degree! Kind of left speechless. The piano playing in the background in certain sections intensified each beat. The ending though!!! Trust issues transitioning into Dance For You!!! That whole section was pure greatness! Great Job BandCamp! Continue to push foward! Cuffing Season 3 is a banger!

    I had to leave a comment because I love what music can invoked in individuals. Whether it is telling a story, stirring emotions, or bringing back memories. Music is powerful. James Lloyd is a very talented musician! I will say it again very talented! haha. Mixing music of today with Jazz is something I REALLY enjoyed. I’ve been called an old soul by many *shrug*. haha. Earl I just want to say keep it up, you are one of the few people that live out their dreams. One person by day and another by night. Very proud. Only up from here!

    Been of fan of the Cuffing Season mix tapes but this one takes the cake. James Lloyd is a baaaad man, and a great musician. I especially loved what he did with “Dance For You”. This is an amazing project.

    My mom is HUGE pieces of a dream fan!! She has been for years’s. Shes’s the reason i have the group’s music on my iPod. She lent me all of her jazz cd’s to upload when I showed interest in jazz and she had everything Pieces of a Dream. To have music from my generation merged with with these amazing jazz instrumentals is awesome. I passed the tape on to her and her friends. Can’t put age limits on good music. Salute to a great father and son collab!! Pressing replay as I press submit <3 loves it

    You defiantly put in work on this. Your transitions were flawless!!! I LOVED the Dance for You section! Your father is extremely talented, his section was the icing on this for sure!! I was really feeling the jazz incorporation with the slow jams. You and your father did great on this. It can only get better from here! Keep it up. :D

    Love the concept behind the jazz >>>> s/o to James!! haven’t seen him in years and as always every time I hear him play I am throughly amazed!! Man I remember when we was in high school and you was the first one out of the crew who had an Ipod, heck I still had a walkman! Not only that you played music that I never heard!! I remember riding in the Navi and telling you… “Son you are going to be a DJ!”…. I didn’t care how much you spoke about Pharmacy you had it then and I saw it immediately! Love you Bruh of 24 years! the longest friendship I have to date! Reach for the stars and nothing is impossible. -Rich

    The “Cuffing Season” series just keeps getting better and better with each edition. The mix itself is sexy but the piano in the background pulls each song together and overall makes it what it is…which is amazing!!! Shoutout to Mr. Lloyd. Magnificent job with your piano!

  32. 02/14/12 19:34


    This mix is serious, everybody need this in they life as long as they can handle the message.

    Awesome collab ! Very creative, and the jazz on top of the “dance for you” song was great ! Glad to see younger people enjoying jazz like I do ….you guys should be very proud of each other =)

    DJ Bandcamp!,
    all my homies in Ohio tell me how much they love you so i listened to the tape.
    when you started out with “Like A Virgin”, it was an instant favorite of mine!
    the collab between the piano and the music is so dope!
    keep doing your thing!
