Thread: Got a gig!

    Default Got a gig!

    HEY ALL!

    My 18 year old self got a call this morning with a gig offer at the local college and I'm really excited and want to do two things:

    1. Tell you guys. Done.

    2. Get a killer opener. In progress.

    I will be playing a techno/house set and I really want a killer opening song. I usually open with Diplo's remix of 'Bust a Move', but was curious, if you were to be playing a 128BPM Tech/House set, what would you open with?

    Cheers mates! Wish me luck!

    I love Vicetone's "Hope" instramental using Chuck Robert's "My House" during the breaks. If you time it perfectly, it is awesome.

    That sounds so fucking legit. Do you have an example you could throw on SoundCloud for the timing you use?

    i'd say some nice roller with a good intro, not too mellow, but i'd say starting with a tune with a SUPER EPIC INTENSE 2 minute extatic buildup isn't the best idea.
