Usually it depends on the crowd, but you can never go wrong with Fatman Scoop – ‘Be Faithful’ or Drake – ‘One Dance’. If we are talking more urban stuff, I would definitely go for Jay Z & Kanye – ‘Paris’ or Future – ‘Mask Off’.
For style and class, Nuvo Birmingham. When it comes to atmosphere I love Balloon Bar, Northampton!
My #SummerSendOff mix on Mixcloud.
It is always an honour being asked to DJ for any kind of event, no matter who is involved or on the line up. I try and see everyone as equal and I have a lot of respect for the talent these people have.
The most challenging element is travelling to different cities, outside of the places you are used to. It makes it a lot more interesting, but can be a task getting the crowd bouncing to the stuff you are used to playing.
Nothing out of the ordinary, but having people around you helps you ‘warm up’ before entering the club. It’s important to be ‘on a level’ with the crowd when you start your performance.
Future and Drake, without a doubt!
I’ve been able to open people’s eyes to my style of DJing, with technical mixing and wordplay, as well as just being known as a ‘selector’.
Definitely the USA… New York, LA or Miami!
Consistency is key!
Give me a full Pioneer setup: CDJ 850s or above, a DJM 700 or above, and most importantly… a WORKING crossfader!
