what do i do?

I started playing out as a DJ 9 years ago (as Ambyte ... links available if in doubt) ... before that was playing with a band and have been going out to clubs and gigs for over 15 years ... I feel that in that time i've gotten a reasonable idea as to what people will head out to support.

I think Brisbane does a fine job of supporting gigs that are not restricted to what they hear on the radio or can sing along to. Just check out the Stepp Inn any given week as a prime example


Family, Monastery and GPO = decent shit ? Some may beg to differ.

all good just glad its someone with some music knowledge as have seen quite a few people talkin and not having any experience in the industry!

Well GPO was ok for a few weeks when my mate Dluxx was playin....family i dont mind as they SOMETIMES get decent acts n if that fails my mae Gunz plays jack house in uncle from time to time, monestry only really for thursday nites as i like the dirty glitch stuff..they change all the time as do most of the clubs so sometimes its good sometimes its not....again really dependin on what ur into....i'm guessin u n i have very different musical taste as I don't think i've ever watched a live band....not that i can't appreciate it, just not my thing.....altho half the electronic stuff comes from bands! lol

yea man ur spot on tho....GC n sunshine is very commercial....but like i said i gigged so much as didnt wana wrk a day job n havent for a few yrs now

you are correct, shit music + shit people is a bit of a turn off for me.

as for the 3500's they were given to me by my brother when i first started mixing.

ah k thats cool.....i used to sell for pioneer pro dj aus n yea we had stacks of em back n the rotors r shit.....

umm berlin is closed coz the owner didnt pay rent for 3months lol my mates were runnin it n turned up one day to it closed! i played there a few times it wasnt too bad.....

ruby tramp is open every thurs fri sat....thurs nite is student night, they actually sponsor my chart show on radio metro now, they're startin to get sum ok acts...nothin special, last week had dangerous dan from bang gang....this week nacho lovers from fools gold......they play alotta commercial electro and electro remixes.....

elsewhere still does alright fri sat n most sundays....yea they pretty much dont play any commercial...i jus find it to be abit of a dive at times n some really fkd up ppl go there! ok if ur 1 of those kids that runs round off chops n wants to dance to the pretty lights (if u havent been there the dance floor lights up in squares with different colors lol

think that pretty much covers it....oh umm to the question bout if any clubs play fidget/jackin etc not really....elsewhere plays a little bit of wonk but alot of underground n sum nu disco....
