Party diary

2 weeks ago I played a birthdayparty and this weekend a wedding!

I play everything from Frank Sinatra to The Killers on this parties, so the trick to make it work is to play the right track at the right time. The bride asked for 80´s music and I was not late to reply... Depeche Mode, New Order and Erasure made the crowd go wild!

To DJ with the laptop vs. Vinyl/CD is like "same same but different" you always need to select the right tune to play, the computer can´t do that for you, but its always a matter of how you organise of tracks!
Technically it is more differences, since the program makes everything stay in sync and give a great visual overview of the track it leave the DJ room to be more creative!

Digital DJ no1

Had my first gig this saturday playing 100% from laptop via EKS soundcard and controllers.
Using the new Traktor Pro program it was a bit nervous but it worked out perfectly!
