At the Lonely End of the Dance Floor
Posted 28 January 2007 - 10:41 AM
went to that thing yesterday night. had to go on my own cos all the people i know here can't take more than 1 hour at a club. it was good. lots of weird house, kind of dubby and trancey in places. pryds was pretty cool. played a lot of his own material, i think. he played "depeche mode - everything counts (oliver huntemann and stephan bodzin dub" in his set. that track kicks ass live. i tried mixing it myself in a set that i'm practicing on and though it sounded good and was really surprised that he played it.
oh and the place with a capacity of 2000 people was sold out, which i found odd. had to buy a guest ticket from as scalper dude.
and british people are hella funny at clubs. there's so many old people raving up the party like a mothefucker. really cool dudes.

how you sait it, an aspiring one.
i've been messing with software for a while, listening to mixes trying to pick up things. ordered a book on how to dj too. and now this guy who heard me say that i'm trying to learn how to dj wants me to play a party for a bunch of russian speaking students at our uni. none of those people i know are into electronic music or clubbing, so i'm kind of whatever. it's not like they're gonna dance or anything. but i'm trying to make a decent mix anyway, at least to test myself in case anything goes further than just words.
so yeah, give me some good tracks please.
Do you want hardcore house/techno, or techno on the verge of listenable?

The thing is I like to play dramatic tunes for mind numbing drunk nights, and I don't know if this might work for you.

could you give some examples
Well, for starters, references to drugs and alcohol are always present in my mixes. I LOVE the Pet Shop Boys' "You Only Tell Me You Love Me When You're Drunk (Atta Boy Still Love You When We're Sober). !!!'s, "Take Ecstasy With Me is" a good one too. "Haunted House" by Matt 101 off the Disco Nouveau series has this hypnotic sound that's just "screams party." I can't really think of many off the top of my head. I'll upload some of these later on today.
