    Default What kind of giggs do you do mostly??

    Im going to get myself back out in the game the next month or so, well at least try anyway. When i used to play out i mostly just did the whole night in the pubs/clubs i worked in, apart from one where i shared the night with 1 or 2 other dj's which i found to be a right laugh and probably more fun than working alone for 4-5 hours lol..... my question is whats your most popular gig, just an hour set somewhere or the whole night at the venue your gigging at?

    I usually do 2 hours at a night club. There's usually 3 DJ's in a night and it varies in what order we go. It's a lot of fun Sometimes we go two at a time since we've got a DVS rig and my s4.

    I started doing small club/Bars, alone or with friends. Then we did Tag teams in those places. Then we founded DJ group and our own dj booking agency (if you can call 3djs and couple of mcs that) just to look little bit more proffesional to bar/club owners. After a while we started to run our own promoting, parties and renowned club nights. Now, we are doin all that.

    Tuesday (Hip-Hop,Chill, House) Wednesday (Disco stuff, general fucking around and having fun with porn samples) Friday or Saturday (TechHouse, ElectroClash). Sometimes tag team but mostly 10-2 solo. I loved the weeknights, so much more intimate and requests seemed to be a higher caliber.

    Sometimes i'd go to a sheesha bar and play cassettes on an old POS Sony. Had all kinds of shit from second hand stores/flea markets. A friend would bring a TT and play Ravi Shankar LPs backwards while I bust out some Cyndi LAuper. hehe, fun times

    I still do gigs in my bedroom.

    at least the bathroom never has a line, and I never have to tip for the beer.
