    Default DJing New Years Party Have one of THOSE Requests...

    So im booked to dj a new years party... its a new years party and a stag and doe to raise money. Its gonna be a rough gig... older crowd around at the beginning.... red red wine, country songs.. ugh im cringing already just thinking about it....

    so the request is they want me to play a version of happy birthday after new years because it is the grooms sisters birthday. Anyone have any decent versions of happy birthday such as an instrumental or something creative with a dance beat hahah i dunno...

    Also does anyone have any cool new years countdowns or ideas for a new years buildup etc. This is my first new years gig.
    thanks

    It shouldn't be too hard to recreate the distortion and FX on Steve Aoki's voice so that you can place a straight up 10-0 countdown before the WHOOP WHOOP in ableton. That'd be a sick little remix.

    Somebody did a mashup of the Beatles song "Birthday" and the 50 Cent song where he raps "it's your birthday, it's your birthday".

    If your doing a NYE for older folks, you can never go wrong with U2 - New Years Day. For a Birthday song, Beatles or Altered Images - Happy Birthday always work
