I haven't done it before - is it easy? Like Nick Nolte I have 48 hours
just don't get drunk and skip tracks halfway through like i used to.
i'd like to see you dj ann, what stuff would you play?
but depends if you are going to create music or play pre mixed music.
I watched my friend Francois DJ by 'creating' sounds and music and it's fucking a lot harder than it looks. RESPECT to those people who can do it. Very intricate... creating a 'live track'...
You will be fine, Prole.. Just don't get pissed beforehand if you can help it.
bah! even i could put together a good indie disco playlist and let it run while i watch hot girls dance and enjoy complimentary beers ...
theres an awesome new gadget from a decent dj company that has an ipod dock. it means you can dj and cross-fade, mix-in 2 tracks direct from your ipod.
and I felt like I was cheating
and it is a new laptop so had a minimal amount of soungs in itunes which meant I kept repeating myself
I meant songs. What the hell are soungs!
came to see me once. :)
i usually just played whatever it was that i liked at the time. it was in a pub so no one really cared what i put on.
i've played stuff like 65dos, ninja high school, mum, cocorosie, piney gir, saul williams, and rjd2...it was quite mixed.
Although she did spend an swful lot of time chatting and getting free drinks. She's pretty good at both those things too though.
these were all part of being a good all-round dj, no?
nevermind not being able to actually play records. :S
i can't wait to see you in action.
Just get drunk. Like me.
trust me. and then i'll become one of those drunk people who annoys the dj by making lots of requests. :)
you'll get your wish.
but while you're here can you play something by the gossip and/or the knife. PLEASE?
you're the bestest matt!
they're insulting to the dj's taste ie. mine.
unless they're good.
of vision creation newsun?
my ears will explode. And it will be entirely your fault.
Ann made DJing look VERY easy, it was ace!
I'd be doing you a favour.
I'd probably still be left with the stupid sticky-out bits, knowing my luck.
so I AM going to have an overemotive fight with him on Saturday. During Zane Lowe's band's single
zane lowe has a band?
But to do it well takes a bit of practice. Play around with traktor for a few days and get the beatmatching down to a tee, you can get pretty creative with it.
here's hoping I don't fuck up on the night - help!
i've dj'd with ipods, thats ok
