Music Policy - there is none!

One of the questions I get asked a lot is “how do you know what to play?” Well the truth is, I don’t… well not until I get on the decks and look at the crowd! Disco, Indie, Rock, Soul… whatever it takes. To be honest, these days most of the crowd that come to hear me know what they are going to get, tunes that made you what you are today. I recently did an interview and the guy, AH Barnes, the 80/90s Music Critic said “Ok tell me the last few tunes you were listening to in the car”.

For all you die hard purists out there , even though I am showing a Vinyl which I obviously used back in the day I now use CDs. It all sounds very “keeping it Real” however I have had my fill off humping boxes of vinyl up and down stairs., ha ha.  Anyway to my credit I have not moved on to laptop – now we are talking soulless!!

Pimp my tunes

By now I think you can see that I love all music.

What I have listed is a variety of what I play , however, I am more than happy to work with you on what you would like to mainly hear on your night.

I will be honest and say that I do not do whole nights of 70s or 80s etc ,what I tend to do is if you like 70s Disco as an example I usually play that for about 60 to 90 minutes at the peak of the evening.

The rest is usually the classic dance from the last few years- Hence the title of my night “ back in the day” Disco , Motown, Funk, House[ Hacienda Classics] , Indie , Pop and Rock all commercial classic tunes.

If it has a dance beat I will play it.

What you have to remember is that you are paying me to entertain your wide variety of guests which usual means a wide variety of music requests.
