Here’s last night’s playlist. Pretty different than many of mine; there was one significant music folder I tried not to play out of, and by the end of the night I think I only played one song out of there. A lot of stuff I usually play (early in the night) didn’t get played at all. Also, I went a significant amount of the night before I realized I didn’t play almost anything above 100bpm. Once I realized this, I actively tried to keep it up. Continue Reading

Here’s the songs I played last night. It didn’t get as busy as last time but it was still a great night. Sound-checked with Out For A Rip. Played Cupid Shuffle and Cha Cha Slide by request, kept it a bit more old-school than I had originally intended but that’s what kept everyone dancing.
Shark Tank – Out For A Rip
Bombfunk MC – Freestyler
Clear Soul Forces – Stick Em
Crystal Method – Name Of The Game (Calling All Freaks)
Snoop Dogg – Drop it like it’s Hot ft Pharell Wiliams

DJ Change – Drake & Wiz Khalifa vs Cage The Elephant – I Did it Overnight (Hiphop Rock Mashup)
Outkast – Ms Jackson
KRS-One – Sound of da police
I threw a song together using clips of Trump’s voice. If you like dubstep and dislike Trump, you’ll probably like this track… I will try to keep politics off this blog but this was too good to pass up. And to be clear, I’m just as anti-Hillary as anti-Trump.
Saw a hilarious picture that said “Every time a DJ calls himself a musician, a real musician laughs.” I thought that was pretty funny, and it made me think of what my answer would be if someone asks me how I can call myself a musician. This post is that answer, and I’ll also answer this- what makes me the authority of who is or isn’t a “producer?” (https://mikldeitrick.wordpress.com/2013/12/20/oh-youre-a-producer-cute/) It’s pretty simple- I’m not claiming to be a producer. If you’ve read my rant about producers, you’ll very clearly get my opinion on it. Yes, I’m a dj. Yes, I’m a musician, reasons listed below. No, I don’t call myself a producer. When I have my own studio and am actually doing all the things it takes to be a real producer, then I will be proud to take the title.
