    Default last night my first real night in the club

    last time i was in the club it was a try out to see if he liked me, last night was my first night actually as the dj, it went ok, i figured i had to do alot more promoting next thursday, and I still need alot more hip hop I kept running out, but peopole did like the house tracks I did play.

    Technicel problems wow, first when I got there, ableton wouldn't recognize my sound card or midi controller, then i restarted, tried ableton again, it would recognize the midi controller and not the sound card, i restarted ableton again, now it recognized my sound card but not the midi controller. I was getting pissed. so I just cut ableton off, unplugged the midi and sound card and plugged it back in and started up ableton again and everything worked fine.

    Even tho everyone told me I did great I still wish more people came, but this is a new club so I just got to get out there alot more and promote but the club owner was very satisfied with my night.

    good luck to you, man. It's hard fuckin work, but once we get it going it can be vastly more rewarding than anything else.

    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    Hey X, its hard to promote your own event and dj at the same time. But its not impossible, and it very rewarding being that you cut out the promoter and you get a large cut.

    If you need more hip hop or hip pop as I like to call it now, being that its play on "Pop/Top 40" radio PM and I can share my playlist so you can get an idea of what I play in a typical night.

    For a quick list of top Hip-Hop, you can always check the Promo Only series or playlists from any radio station's website. I have thousands of hip-hop cuts for ya. Good luck with your gig...it takes a few nights to establish a following.
