Groovetech Podcast 060 – Techno, House and Minimal

I’m going to share a little secret with you. You might find that I play some tracks together all the time. I believe going into a DJ Set freestyle is too risky, as you run the risk of ruining an otherwise awesome vibe. Instead, I tend to group my tracks into little clusters of 3-5 records that work well together and can mix together smoothly. This approach lets me mix across genres and lets me bolt my set together depending on energy levels. I like disruption in my sets, which is why you will never hear me take it easy – I explore my crates, dig out old tunes and find room for them with the newer stuff. Those times when a tough techno beat complements a Soulful House track works better than PB&J.

Since You’re Here …

… I have a small favour to ask. Did you know it can take me up to 8 hours to curate, master, edit, upload and share my weekly podcasts? That’s a full day of work but I am happy to share my vinyl collection with audiences.

Unfortunately I am also an adult, and maintaining my gear, turntables and records do carry expenses. So I have setup my virtual tip jar searching for a coffee. I didn’t setup a Patreon page to make a living, or get rich, rather, I’ve setup my Patreon with the intention of using it as a channel to reach out to my followers and fans.

If making a recurring donation on Patreon is too much of a long term commitment, perhaps buying me a coffee suits your budget. Click here to donate a few dollars using Paypal, otherwise, my future would be much more secure if you were to become a Patron by clicking the orange button below.
