If they start their own events there won't be any problem.

I've been to many venues where young soul lovers DJ

Black Bee in Manchester and Wigan Young Souls at Highfield Soul Club are 2 venues promoted by the younger generation and who use young DJs to do guest spots

Lots of young DJs running their own very successful soul clubs, especially in Manchester and Leeds. None of them needed a leg up from established events. To be honest the young DJs who get spots at well known nighters after buying a few records because the promoter is a mate aren't the ones I'd choose to listen to.

Sadly there is people out there with the records that can't get a look in so most places stick with their band of mates and play the same tunes all the time to each other so unless the young ones can get in with some promoters they will have to put on their own event then invite fellow promoters to dj at their event and I turn what generally happens is they get return dj spots themselves.  Your lucky you don't live in the south the standard of djs isn't very good and no youngsters wanting to dj.  Its a case of different venues same djs.

That's not true..Black Bee Boys get everywhere..Young DJs from Yorkshire, the Midlands and the North West are playing at venues on a regular basis

Regardless of age or gender a DJ needs to have passion and a reputation for playing an interesting/exciting/eclectic set.

 

Then and only then should he or she expect to be asked to guest at nights.

What ? Standards of DJs isnt very good in the south ? What about these nights - Masters of Soul, Soul Syndicate, Majestic Soul, Inner City Soul nights run by James Pogson and his mates who look pretty young to me !! All vibrant, imaginative and upfront nights searching out new sounds !

What nights are you referring to ?

With the poster all the way.

 

Heartily sick of those 70+ dj's like Sam and Dewhirst keeping us 61 year olds out of the running.

 

Not to mention that bald cartel.

 

And don't start me on the shorta*ses like Butch. OK he may have a few records but he can't see over the decks.

 

I suggest young dj's just send promoters a CD with a polite note. Not to me though. Can't be doing with 'em.  Bedroom's a mess, run up mobile bills....

heard lev (the happy one :wicked: ) play a good spot a couple of weeks back in Bristol..all originals, a mix of classics and some I didn't know in a set that flowed nicely and without any technical f+++ ups..better than some established djs!..she will be playing in Weston in a couple of weeks too

 

and it depends on what you call young now...the likes of callum simpson etc will still be about in 15-20 years!

I don't know where your going because we see plenty..Admittedly a few are WYS, but some of the Young DJs playing there maybe there friends but are not WYS

I saw a young DJ from the midlands play there recently..I'll find his name and post it later

Trouble is that a lot of venues use the tried and tested DJ as it keeps numbers up. only really ever seen a couple young djs  and they are Alex simms and and Pete Jones both excellent djs and both from Yorkshire . :)

Why not? I'm playing my first set next month.

My dads mate runs an event, there's no soul club ran by young people where I live, because there simply isn't the demand.

Another way of looking at it is this maybe......  Why not let the teenagers play the same old tunes that the old farts have been playing for the last 20 as they might actually look like their are enjoying themselves behind the decks   :thumbup:

Why not? Because in my experience they almost always play boots or stick to the same oldies I've heard a million times, no originality and no point having a young DJ that plays the same as everyone older. Maybe you're different. Good luck with your first spot. :thumbsup:

Last time I looked on the map the south was down Southampton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth area. From here in Southampton its 2 hours drive to London, rugby (up norf) Bristol (west).  Where I originally come from In Kent I used to look at Southampton as West Country lol.  

 

If you lived in north west and had to drive to hours anywhere would you still be in the north west ? Not including traffic jams  :lol:

 

i know now I could of been more specific but I had a laugh to amuse meself  :D

The South is wider than the North but it's still the South, further dividing it into South East or South West just makes it more accurate, but it's still the South :D:shhh::P

I understand that. But with the scene being a niche as it is. Sometimes the likes of me will need a leg up.

Otherwise the same DJ's are going to be playing the same events, with the same records. For the most part, at least.

hi everybody. i'm a bit sick of this old discussion to be honest.

there's lots of stuff going round europe made of young people. like spain, italy, germany, switzerland, austria, sweden and so on. they all have great taste and there are some that like classics and some that are more upfront. we in lucerne (switzerland) do a weekender called "Not too Young Weekender" especially for this. we try to invite younger dj's or dj's that have great collections and are not getting invited anywhere to give them a platform. most people invite the same dj's everywhere so you get to hear the same tunes...that's how it is! if you look at our playlist: 

you can see that lots of great tunes are played by younger dj's. I only can give you the advice to watch behind the curtain and book some flights early that it's not so expensive and get over! also in the uk is lots of stuff going btw.....

As Boogaloo says there should be more "made of young people".

 

Fences ? Traffic bollards ? Decorative Xmas displays rather than cut down trees.

 

Lets face it. They're not going to get a proper job.

OK then. Let the dog see the rabbit.

Post your 18 x 45s that you'd play if I were to book you as a 'DJ'.
