    Default I got asked to do a "Smiths" Tribute Set

    ...but here is the thing, Its at a 80's club here in L.A. Called "The Breakfast Club". The catch is they never play any Smiths/Morrissey or even Spanish Rock from the 80s. Its mostly a 80s New Wave/Darkwave/Post Punk/Electro 2005-2008/Goth+Industrial. It where all the cool kids go that listen to dark music during the week.

    Ok the real catch. The main DJ still plays on Vinyl and I get hated on for using a laptop. They do have 1200's and a dual cd player...but TBH it sounds like crap.

    Should I just say the hell with it and play digital, DVS, or just bring my Smiths Vinyl?

    but seriously, id say do what you do, how you do it, and strive to do it better. best feeling is when someone gives you shit for not being able to do something (or do something different) and you throw down and blow em away.

    no?

    maybe to save face go DVS? or bring the vinyl? fuck it... id just go with my lappy and controller... whatever you feel most comfortable with...

    ... ive had other DJ's in clubs ive played at hate on me because i wasnt using Vynil or CDJs, Just a VCI with a mapping simmilar to eans, and then by the end of my set, they were all in the DJ booth watching me going... WHOOA howd you do that? but isnt the jog wheel supposed to do that? what? i thought that was the play button before... how did it change to that? Why isnt the volume changing when your using the faders, and how are they doing that instead?

    ... yeah... lets see them do THAT with vinyl or CDJ's

    Whatever you do loop the beginning of How soon is now? for 32 or so bars and when you whip everyone into a frenzy, drop Soho's "Hippie Chick" instead.

    I think playing the How Soon Is Now cover by Tatu would get me hanged.
