A big thanks...

A big thanks to all those people that listen to my mixes :-)  I really must do another one soon - the live one from SEED has been getting a lot of love from all quarters, its really representative of how I like to mix things up genre wise so I'm really happy with it...

Thanks all!

Big London DJ Competition - this Friday!

I'm playing this Friday at the Egg on York Way behind Kings X Station, come on down :-)  Not sure what time i'm playing but it will be a good night - not only will you get to see me play but there are some other names as well!

On the road again...

This article on Seth Troxler got me thinking - its a great article sure, but one that could be representative of just about any working DJ in the 'Premiership', Sasha must have been going through this kind of life for years.

It certainly makes me appreciate playing irregular gigs - making them special occasions to me, I can treat each one individually.  Playing every night and several places even on some nights I can see the temptation to repeat sets and mixes that work, fortunately, thanks to the plethora of dance music out there this rarely needs to happen.

I've always said I'd be unsure about turning DJing into a job if I ever had the chance (highly unlikely!), as much as I love doing it, the loneliness of the travelling, the brief interludes of highs then back to the grind again does not appeal that much - that said I'd certainly like to try it for a month!  Perhaps I could do project management as a hobby...
