Relationships come and go, but vinyl is forever. The art of performing and DJing will continue to merge with technology – but, for me, the most important skill of a DJ is the very human intuition of knowing what tune to play next at any given moment and that is something that has and always will remain unaffected by technology. But what might seem to be a disadvantage to owning vinyl is actually what makes it the superior format for DJs. Turntables have no LED lights – so you end up doing a lot more listening. Vinyl records stimulate your auditory senses, so you create a wonderful connection with your own collection – and a deeper connection with your audience.
Be a Guest on the Show
If you play underground music, I want to hear from you. Send me a message including a link to your mixcloud or soundcloud and thoughts about your music convictions and if things work out I would be privileged to have you on the show in the future. Consider this: it’s all about the heart and soul so what I want to hear is a mix that you really feel and like, not just something to get more fans or gigs. It’s not about you – its about the music.
