lol, you should read the house forum. it's been shameful lately, no love! you see kids? this is what listening to electro house does to your personalities!

electro house - you don't know what it'll do to you. (kind of)

taking the next step in having your first gig, mate thats a learning curve- southern_dan its pretty sad how u ditched that 4 'acid' now open decks, bookings, etc woteva a gigs, a gig. you chickened out and ur joking abt it. congratz 'dan-the-man', ur turning out to be one hell of a disgrace.

one things 4 sure, when i get my first gig im gonna appreciate it more. i mit kill it, i mit stuff it up and hell yeah i'll be scared but at least i wouldn't chicken out on it and take 'acid' then joke around abt it.



If you had one shot, one opportunity, would you capture it? Or just let it slip?

But some tips that I would give that helped me:
1. Have a couple (2-3) beers/drinks, but thats it - enough to loosen up, but for your first few times you want to be alert, and responsive. Any more than this, and you may well lose your concentration for a second and hit eject on the wrong cd player or something like that.
2. No drugs - you will fuck up.
3. Try to have at least the first 2-3 tunes already chosen - that way you can minimize the pressure you're ultimately placing on yourself.
4. Bring as many friends as you can - their support will ease the tension.
5. Breathe (I know this sounds silly, but deep inhaling/exhaling helps you relax)
6. Concentrate. (obviously)
7. And yeah like everyone else has mentioned already, most punters wont hear if you trainwreck a mix, so dont worry too much if you do.

Cheers

Southern Dan has copped a fair bit of grief here... but then again I guess when I played my first gig (or first few for that matter) I didn't even drink. Things have changed a little now... A gut full of beer and a spliff does wonders for my mixing! Only problem is when you start forgetting what tracks you have played lol.

Southern Dan have you actually played any gigs since the start of the thread.?

Before I got all my residencies in clubs one of the best gigs I had was in a feild in Samford in Brisbane and I was tripping badand had a pil but everything got together and it was awesome. It was maybe the the 2nd or 3rd time I played on a pa.But the environment was awesome.

Fortunately for me my first residency when I was a noob and young was in a club that I got payed to work 6 days a week even if few people were there so it was likeing playeing at home but getting payed and I had a decent sound system. Dureing the week I would be mixineinf for 8 hours a night...sweet.

hey I got some good advice from established djs in Brisbane from there and It helped me heaps..I went on to have many residencies for 5 odd years, got different advice and chose what to take on board.

Like I have said..learn to ride the pitch control it really is a good skill to have and your mixing will allways be smooth..its about training your ears..which it all ends up at...

So when ya at home don't adjust the speed of your records or cds with your hand ..just use the pitch control...

Heck sometimes I don't mix for months but jump on my decks and the ride the pitch and its all good...

I spoilt myself and have ableton on a laptop with faderfoxes and did play a few gigs at family in the pod with em..but I will not comment on that further..

Playing in clubs...You have Monitor speakers which bounce the sound to your head where you are monitoring with your headphone on one ear...

You want both of em loud so you create a stereo effect in your head... forget about everything else..


just match your beets with the headphone ear and monitor speaker... thus you creat a stereo effect in your head from two mono sources
