  • Brickin it

    I've got my first real DJ gig and I'm bricking it!! Well when I say gig, I'm playing in a pub alongside people who have probably got a clue about what they're doing. Guys help me, am I out of my depth???

    To make matters worse I'm down as playing Rare Funk!! And to make matters even worse I'm down as Mr Krijbolder, my girlfriends surname. What should I do?

    Thats so close to our new office that I could throw wet sponges at ya

    Count me down on being there!

    Oh and as for djing tips -

    Arrange your records in some sort of bpm order - I know you sticker your good tracks so it should be easier.

    Put the slower ones at the front and the bangers at the back.

    Play it funky - not crazy jazz/funk or anything. Basically tone it down for the general public. I know you've got a sick selection so don't fret.

    Always make sure there are no big gaps between tracks - as its funk then mixing is generally nice fades between songs. It's still easy to mess this up so listen to everything you want to play so you know if its a sudden stop or a slow fade in the track.

    Oh and DONT drink loads of You'll only take the off the record thats playing - or something.

      read Bill&#39;s book about how to DJ properly bloody quick&#33;

      and don&#39;t play weird Euro jazz records that only you like just because they&#39;re worth a packet. be honest&#33;

      most of all have fun and enjoy it - and try to make sure the punters enjoy it so you get asked (and maybe paid, good God&#33 to do it again&#33;

          Brillo is for *our* entertainment. DJ gigs are for *their* entertainment.

          Look at the graphic on Bill&#39;s djhistory.com site for all the info you need

            Oh God, you mean there might be people there that aren&#39;t anoraks like us&#33; I wasn&#39;t banking on that when I agreed to play.
            Anyone know the other Dj&#39;s? Are the proper, bonafide turntabilists??

              I bet those guys play decent stuff. Who knows? I doubt they are wicki-wicki tastic.

              Anyway who cares who they are&#33; Ive played with other djs and always tell them to get their stinking hands off my records.

              &#39;can I look through your bag mate?&#39;

                I&#39;ll second that - very entertaining. Nothing more to say (or that I&#39;m qualified to say ) other than enjoy, good luck and Mr. Krijbolder is a great DJ tag (sounds very Jazzanova)...

                    it would be good to get some feedback from a proper DJ or two - Greg? Bill?

                      Rich, don&#39;t say this. I&#39;m already under enough pressure as it is having been to about three weddings in the last few weeks. &quot;So when are you two going to get married then?&quot;

                        At the last &#39;Program&#39; I tripped over my record box and fell behind the decks. So llmod1 your DJ gig will be better than mine.

                          I&#39;ve witnessed Andy Lewis &amp; Paul Hallam DJing many times - Andy is a bit more leftfield mixing in newer tracks - Paul spins classic &amp; rare moddy flavoured stuff - mainly boogaloo-tinged soul/R&amp;B of late. Lots of nice blue-eyed gear too. Never heard of the other guy. Best of luck to ya&#33;
