It's rare these days to hear DJ Chonz spin a set from a playlist of his choosing. Most of his mixes during KS-107.5's live daily Traffic Jam are limited to the station's playlist, and when he's behind the decks during the week at the handful of clubs where he plays, he mostly caters to a radio-listening crowd. So unless you're like me and receive original Chonz mixes by e-mail or instant messaging, chances are good you just haven't had many chances to hear pure DJ Chonz mixes. Until now, that is. For the last week, Chonz has been spinning live from his basement and webcasting the sets live on his ustream channel. He's been pretty consistent with an 11 a.m. start time, and he's also occasionally been broadcasting live from the radio station or one of his clubs at night. Sample one of this week's sets after the jump.
