    ESP- It's a miracle

    Up for grab is an elusive Ohio modern soul record. Visually speaking, I'd grade this as Vg--/G+, though you may want to refer to the following soundfile (tune in at 26:04- the actual intro was cut for mixing purposes, but I can assure it plays as good as the rest of the song) to have a better idea of what it actually sounds like. 130 € + shipping Should you have any doubts you want me to solve, feel free to drop me a PM
  5. Sorry - I forgot to put the 'mischievous face' thingy up () 'Well caught' that man! All the best, Len
  6. Yes lots I'm afraid as not long ago - I'm having a sort out over Christmas, so may be in the sales (Not sure as yet though mate) No PMs please! All the best, Len

    first three records to start a set

    As has been mentioned previously the ability to read a crowd of people on a dancefloor, judge their reactions and what they want or expect to hear is paramount. Please bear in mind that I'm not a Northern Soul DJ,I just appreciate the music, so I'm coming at this from a background which is immersed in Hip Hop,Funk and Breakbeat culture,where often as much emphasis is placed on the skill set of a DJ as the records they spin..sometimes more so,in fact. That said I'm a firm believer in programming sets if its just playing records,ideally having several options to cover all bases and spend time really working hard on how certain records can be mixed or sequenced together to the best effect.Most importantly you need to know your records inside out, where the breaks or breakdowns are at certain points on the record for example which can be mixed in and out to create cue points for the next record to be dropped etcetera. One of the main issues I take with certain DJ's (or people who like to call themselves one) is often their inability to mix with cohesiveness which is something I just don't understand as theres no point in having boxes of great sounding vinyl if you cant mix them together properly. When I've paid good money to go to an event I expect to see a DJ with a charismatic stage presence,great sounding tunes with well-composed routines, and precise technical control.Sloppy or inadequate mixing I just cant tolerate,personally. I could list loads, but here's an example of 3 tracks out of many that I could easily start a set with providing that the records hadn't been played earlier in the night by another DJ obviously.These are all in similar tempos and also very simple to mix together too!
  11. Have knocked a bit more off the price, on all of these. Considering the condition, then very fairly priced. U.K. customers only. PAYMENT BY BANK TRANSFER, SORRY NO PAYPAL. £100 or more add £8.00p extra, for special delivery p&p, for 1 to 3 discs. Under £100 add £3.00 extra for recorded delivery p&p, for 1 to 3 discs.

    Hercules - Aaron Neville ‎–

    i slept on one on discogs 2 weeks ago.....:-( but i had a good fun the night before
  19. I view the end of a function as one of the most important parts of the night to get right. If a few mistakes are made earlier in the evening at least they can be smoothed over and forgotten about if all goes well later. Those final tracks have to have the crowd sent home eagerly awaiting the next function. Here's my thoughts on the subject. It's not the tempo of a track at the end of the night that is the most important factor, but the lyrics. Are they relevant to the function itself and the atmosphere of the crowd? Whilst there is no need to play love songs at the end of a birthday party, failing to do so at a wedding is hardly good practice! If we take a soul night where there might be a number of couples (or to be, at least for that one night!) on the dance floor, then ending with 3 consecutive tracks with titles such as "I'm leaving you,""You had your chance and blew it," and "Another Woman's Man," doesn't seem right to me no matter how wonderful the tracks might sound in a different environment. Here's the final 4 tracks that I would end a soul and funk function with. The track titles of the first 2 need no explaining. The Starpoint track is geared towards a play on the lyrics suggesting you "bring your sweet loving (of music) back" to the next function. It has an "impact" start that stamps it's authority instantly and then allows just enough time before the vocal comes in to make a brief first of two, closing and thank you announcements. We end with the wonderful mid tempo instrumental that I've used as the final track of almost every function I've DJ'ed at since it's release, over which I thank the crowd for attending and wish them a safe journey home. World Premiere - Share The Night - 1983 Change - Keep You Warm - 1984 Starpoint - Bring Your Sweet Loving Back - 1982 Total Contrast - Sunshine Instrumental - 1986 What would be the final 4 tracks you'd play at the end of a function and why?
