Arkaei pre-trolls his Push 2 performance so you don’t have to

This made me laugh; but try to actually listen to Arkaei’s music while you’re at it – this is a beautifully understated piece. Arkaei is a most excellent performer, but still gets trolls posting crap on his videos. So pulling the rug from underneath them, he’s pre-trolled himself.

Review of the year, 2015

Well, it’s been a pretty nuts year. I started as a dabbling bedroom producer and occasional, moderately reluctant DJ; the year finished with me full-time pro in the mobile DJ market and with a CD release and BBC Introducing Artist of the Month under my belt as a producer. And some live shows, too! Just by looking…

Announcing the very first video on my ‪‎youTube‬ channel – an insight into a side of ‪mobile DJ‬-ing that you’ve probably never seen: the build. Just one part of the masses of work that goes into a successful ‪event‬ or ‪‎party‬, the build is where we turn a car-full of bits and pieces into a thing of power and…

“But my mate’ll do it for 20 quid”…

Hey folks, sorry if you’ve not found what you were expecting here, but it’s actually really good news (well, for me it is, anyway!) This article has been picked up for publication by Digital DJ Tips – and part of the deal is that the original is taken down. I’ll put a link on this page to…

Lighting case customisation

I’ve been planning to customise my lighting storage for a while now – and this week I finally got round to actually doing the job. I’ve got a huge Protex case that I store all of my lights in – but up until now I’ve been using the original foam and card packing that the…

Streaming Music Comes To Serato

Serato users will soon be able to DJ with music streamed directly from the internet, thanks to the company’s new partnership with DJ-focused streaming music subscription service, Pulselocker. Serato users with a Pulselocker account will also be able to store music offline for DJ-ing, too. Potentially and very useful (and disruptive!) feature… follow the link…
