The truth is I have a very big soft spot for DJIng electro house. It was huge at a time when I was well and truly immersed in the club scene and when playing live and experiencing the energy that came from EDM clubs, it was honestly something else and a time I'll never forget. I remember when I was younger I had this obsession for Wolfgang Gartner. I was getting into electro hard but at the same time I knew it wouldn't suit the clubs I was running at the time so I started a new club especially for my love of this music called Warp Speed. This was my first club of this kind and it ran every Friday night in this little venue in Oxford St Sydney and it used to pack out every week, and it was there that I really developed my sound and DJing. Anyway this set is reminiscent of those times and I am really glad I have the platform to share it with so many like minded people. Massive love and respect, this sets for you.

With covid restrictions easing a tonne of my students are now getting shows in clubs and some of them have been asked to do a back to back DJ set. So in this article (video above) I will explain what is a back to back set, the different ways you can approach your back to back set, why the promoter would even ask you to do a back to back set, how to prepare for it and how to assure that when you both play you stand out and make an impact assuring repeat shows.
Have you ever used USBS in clubs and experienced problems? Or perhaps you haven't used club gear yet but you're open to it but not 100% sure how it works or maybe you've already jumped on club gear only to find the gear is not reading your USB properly and every time you load a track you can't see the waveform or BPM?
As many of you know I often take the positive thinking outlook side of things and I've actually done a whole heap of mindset for success videos that were really popular yet I wanted to share something I read recently that I think could really help you manage your expectations and feel victorious no matter what happens. The concept: negative thinking for positive results haha.
I love my job so much and one of my favourite things is listening to student mixes and giving them feedback. The majority of the time, I am blown away by how talented they are, and lots of the time I feel it's kind of like that grasshopper analogy, where the students have surpassed the skills of their teacher, which to be honest makes me really happy and to see so many of my students now landing residencies in clubs and getting really good gigs, it blows my mind.
