It’s almost the end of January, but since I didn’t get the chance to wish you earlier, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome to the new folks & a friendly hello to those that have been around for a while. I think we topped 1000 views for the first time. I feel blessed with your support. THANK YOU!
I’ve got some exciting shows coming up for you this year, but for now this first broadcast from CTRL ROOM will have to suffice.
Within reason, the only people that really care about technique are other DJs. I would much rather hear two hours of amazing music and some slightly off beat0matching than two hours of generic tech-house perfectly blended. Put very simply, great records make a great DJ. The passion to find them, the knowledge to know how to program them and showcase them in the best way possible, and the technical skills to put them together imaginatively, for the greatest end result.
Speaking for myself and the DJs I like to listen to, the true art of the DJ should be a combination of education and amazement. When these two combine, it works better than PB&J. New original tracks and remixes by Cassy, KiNK, Sacramental, Aiken, Truncate, George Tounsidis among others.
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 to 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.
