Returning to DJing after a hiatus

Filed under: General — Tags: , — Sevan @ 11:31 am

From my first days of exploring the nightlife in Brighton as a teenager I wanted to be a DJ, so I started buying records & eventually got a pair of decks & taught myself how to mix. Giving up in the late 2000s because I never made the transition to digital & finding the records I wanted either not being available on vinyl or being at a premium.
My interest was rekindled recently when a colleague asked If I wanted to play at a joint birthday party, It was disastrous & I struggled to mix but the whole thing was so much fun, digging through records trying to find tracks (a strong mental note being kept through out the process that this wasn’t going to be a Sasha tribute) & I got the opportunity to play again this weekend, at a small house party, it was much more fun this time as I let go, starting off with Salt City Orchestras remix of Marshall Jeffersons Mushrooms & finishing off with Salt City Orchestras remix of Underworld Cups with lots of different styles of tracks in between.

Next step is to get myself a copy of traktor & start recording again, It’s been too long.

The last attempt at recording a mix at length a long while ago (it’s a bit rough round the edges).

Track list
Delerium – Silence (Santuary Mix)
2 Smoking Barrels – Bases Loaded (Naive Dub)
Dousk – Estrange
Skydiver – Timeless
Nalin & Kane – Rise In (16B Dub)
Mainline – Innerspace
Age of Love – Age of Love (Jam & Spoon ‘Watch Out For Stella’ Remix)
