last night’s party

so last night i had my first proper disastrous dj set. i had been told that one deck was acting up, but before i started they seemed to be fine. until i brought in my first mix – and metro area’s miura just died on its arse. there had been a big gig on beforehand, and there were a good few people in the club already. i tried to play a few lengthy tracks on the working deck, as any time i tried to mix it just wouldn’t happen. it almost seemed like a theremin – i’d move my hand over the play button and it would stop and start, as if by magic. as it happened, one of those long tracks was loudeast’s shadows, which i’d posted a few weeks ago. never thought i’d get to play that at transmission! i was lucky in getting 30 bars out of an old x-press 2 track before bringing in sammy bananas’ awesome remix of passion pit. by the end of this track my man dave salacious had arrived with his replacement unit, and we were in business. i could mix. i was warming up but i decided to keep it user-friendly – the crowd had been kind enough to dance through the awkward mish-mash that had gone on in the half hour up to that point, so i didn’t go too obscure on their asses. listening back – i was pretty happy. so what started off messy turned around into something quite enjoyable. this one was actually recorded, so i’ll get it online asap – minus the dodgy bits of course 😉

  1. i was half expecting random photos of girls semi nude cause of the title. maybe some day…

    good set list none the less, drumming song killed it i hope.

  2. haha, i’m glad i fooled you.

    thing about drumming song is that it’s got that long break in the middle, and i guess warming up it’s not the best choice. but i saw a lot of girls singing along dramatically, and my logic is always that if the girls are enjoying it, the boys will follow 😉
