This weekend I totted off to Scotland to do a DJ set at the ‘University of Stirling’.
It was the Universities end of year Spring Fling.
When I landed in Scotland myself and tour manager , Winnie, got whisked off to a very fancy hotel to wait until 1pm when my Dj set was. I had some lovely food watched a few films and before I knew it, Winnie was knocking on my door telling me my set was in half an hour.
The university was beautiful, so much countryside and little wild rabbits hopping about everywhere. I got a glimpse of the Uni in daylight when I first arrived, lucky pupils. Although it looked very different in the evening. The students were fully going for it, all dressed up in Olympic themed costumes, clinking tequila and having a pretty sweet time.
I was a bit nervous about Djin as its been a while and I just wanted to give everyone a good time. It was a warm welcome and a few songs in I loosend up and got back in the mojo. I was pleasently suprised when I played “I bet that you look good on the dance floor” by Arctic monkeys, it all kicked off and they went a bit mental. Fairplay to their good taste I say!
It was a good set all in all and I had my confidence back by the end of it. I’m really eager to improve on my Djing, I’ve started to go to Dj lessons with the wonderful and ever so talented DJ spoony. Hopefully one day ill be as good on the decks as him!(Maybs, Ha!)
That night myself and Winnie went to an.. Ummm.. Interesting club,and had a few night caps before I went to my room, danced around a bit and then conked out on my bed.
It was an early start and straight back to london in the morning. A flying but lovely visit to scotland.
Looking forward to doing more sets and in the mean time gonna keep working hard to be come the queen of mixing!…. Its blinkin hard though!
Im on a bit of a music downloading saga at the moment trying to find the best tunes that will go down well on the ‘ravey student nights’ PLEASE advise me. I would love all of you to tell me one song that you would LOVE to hear on a night out and i will add it too my set and let you know when im playing it!! yippeee!
