    Default First Gig, club requirements?

    Hi all,
    So i go to a university in Canada, and the local university bar, which doesn't have a Dj slot on mondays; however, they've asked me to make 5 one hour sets to showcase my style; so far ive made two tech house, one big-room house but i need some track advice for my New York/Ibiza styled house set.
    If anyone has any tracks they think would work well; please help me land my first gig!

    Yeah no shit!!! I'd be careful they are no just using your CD on mondays to play and not have pay a DJ.

    yup.. to be fair, no one is going to listen to 5 hours of mixing just to see if they are ok for a set.

    Hell I have people play at our monthly night I have never heard!
