    Default Anyone Have Experience in Gay Clubs ?

    I'm trying out at a gay club tomorrow . I have some experience but it's been more of a pop/top40 type atmosphere and this club wants house.

    I'm thinkin stuff like Basement Jaxx "Fly life" and More Tribal stuff mixed with Madonna Cher Whitney and Mary J remix's .

    I call the stuff you play in gay clubs "Bath House." Anything by Tom Stephan.

    Take a look at the last two pages on this Traktor thread: http://www.native-instruments.com/fo...ght=bath+house

    i always had succes with the more vocal garage-y house music, mixed with some more latin/tribal house stuff, and some (paradise garage) disco-classics on house beats..but then again, you have lots of different gay crowds, the same like straight crowds

    I don't really know what your demographic is going to be like, but in my experience, I would steer clear of anything stereo-typically gay (madonna, culture club, rick astley) as I have actually offended the promoter before (i don't get booked there anymore =() Electro, Garage, and Indie dance usually do quite well tho. Crystal Castles, Chromeo, Chocolate Puma, The Gossip, Electric Valentine, are some vocals that are nice staples to the GTLB scene and there are plenty of remixes of these artists to choose from.

    What? You must be joking. I went to Badlands in the Castro (San Francisco) a couple weeks ago for my friend's birthday. The DJ there was playing every stereotypical gay anthem out there. He wouldn't even mix... just wait 'til the end of the track and hit play for the next one.

    But let me tell you. That place was more packed than any place I've ever been to and people were loving the music.

    Here's the thing... you should play the music you were booked for... or if the promoter saw you playing somewhere else and wants you to play his night, then play the style you were playing. But most importantly, never play anything you don't personally like.

    I kid you not that I got torn a new one for dropping madonna and culture club... maybe it's just that club but that promoter was soooo angry I thought I was lucky to get out of there alive.

    ya like was said before, just play what you want man. they're hiring you for YOUR taste, so have fun with it!


    if your unfamiliar with house tunes, i'd start gettin your nose into the blogosphere.

    start here: www.discobelle.net

    download the tunes off the page.. when you finish, click the links listed under "Grindin" .... then download the tunes off those pages . rinse. repeat.

    you'll have your finger on the pulse of house music before the day ends, cheers!
