    Default set sets

    Interested to know how many Dj's here program their sets, and how many just wing it. Ive been playing out now for maybe a year and gigs are becoming more regular. I tend to spend a lot of preparation in programming my sets.

    I wing it - I have a few transistions I've stumbled across that work particularly well, so I might use them every once in a while.

    If you entirely preprogram your set and don't/can't vary it you might as well press play on iTunes and sit at the bar all night ...

    thats the point.. a few of my friends do exactly this. preplan every track in a set, writing a playlist and just play the exact same set over and over again.. i find this rather boring..

    I always program a set, i rarely end up following it though - especially once substances are consumed.

    I find myself programming as i play quite often as i like to play full tracks so i have quite a bit of time, usually 3-5 tracks ahead of myself.

    I pick out songs I want to play that night, but I don't have any specific order I'll play them.
    I also have 2-5 song mixes that I've practiced a lot that I'll play at some points during my set, but they'll be added in on the fly with no real planning beforehand.

    I do prepare the set a few days before the gig, and print the playlist on paper.
    Then when in the gig i do change on the fly ondepending on whats happening on the dancefloor.
    My style is very "eclectic", so when im improvising a lot, and start fearing to get lost, i take the sheet of paper from my pocket and default to the original idea..
