What amazing week and weekend, I have never done so many shows in one week ever before. (let alone done that many shows!)
So I am still kinda in a daze mentally and ego wise, not really getting a big head but actually trying to believe all those compliments from random people. I still consider myself very much a beginner with so much more to learn from everybody and myself but knowing that I don't suck feels good.
The Friday Brass Tax PB&J time party went off amazingly well, had a slightly slow start because of the lack of light and a totally new weird mixer but after a couple of songs the dance floor started grooving and I ripped shit up! It was great seeing so many of my friends there. I found a fantastic remix of Peanut Butter Jelly time that I played about halfway through my set and all the BTx peeps came out and climbed on top of each other to make a pyramid. :P I was so nervous that I found it hard to look up at the crowd, I have pretty bad stage fright but find it annoying when the DJ ignores the crowd.
Yesterday I played a Private Pirate Party on an "island" at fisherman's wharf. Had a fantastic time as well but felt a bit tired (hungover) from the night before and working that day. Spun with Tamo and met DJ Smoove again and spun with another DJ whose name I forgot, sorry! Treasure hunts, barrel rollings and some amazing food for dinner, oh and don't forget the free booze. Had a great time Djing despite my technical difficulties, hooray for turntables and Serato's input reverse!
Many thanks to all for the amazing weekend, supporting me and rocking out with me:
Tamo, Smoove, DingDong, Tom, Sharon, Limbo, Dan DasMan, Byron, Influence, Dex Stakker (thanks for the compliment!), Nate, :Prophet, JK Sound, and all those people I forgot the names of but I still remember you, and most of all Lex because with out you I couldn't DJ!
Special thanks to JoeJoe and Dragon for believing in me and inviting me to spin!
Sorry, no recordings from the weekend due to lack of the right cables at both gigs. If you ask for it in the comments I will give you the track listings though. :P
