    Eazzzy!
    Should be playing a big set and I reckon a lot of girls will turn up.
    Just wondering if you could reccomend me any dancehall dirty tunes like duppy man by chase & status. I wanna keep it dnb though.

    All reccomendations are appreciated.

    Cheers! :)

    Duppy Man is dnb. Not dancehall.

    The majority of girls don't really go for ragga bad man screaming...

    What you want is liquid funk.

    disagree.. think adapting a set to what the audience is feeling is what being a dj is all about. if they dont wanna hear it, dont play it

    he's right. you don't wanna bomb in front of a crowd, especially if they're ladies.

    Yeah I dunno, being a DJ is playing what you're into but also having an idea of what the crowd wants to hear. This ain't your mom's basement!

    I agree, I mean its one thing if its a liquid night or whatever, but for the most part, I agree, you shouldn't totally cater your set to the ladies. And keep in mind, some of the ladies like it dark.

    imo u have to play to the audience but unless ur stupidly rich or a professional dj (or mpfrees) you dont have every tune ever made so its always gonna be your own personal selection
    so long as you dont start playin tunes you dont actually like then its all good but u have to feel the floor, its a major part of djing

    I didn't want to adapt my set totally. I just wanted a few ideas of what to play that girls may like thats all.
    But thanks for the comments anyway

    If you are playing only new shit i can't help you. But in my experience the ultimate tunes to move the ladies are:

    Dj nut nut - special dedication

    Deep rolling base and a slow feel to reall get the gal dem grindin!

    New blood - worries in the dance (remix)

    Another Frankie Paul sample with for me almost an early MJ feel, combined with some smooth ragga and dope beats and the ladies will love it.

    If you are not stuck in a time warp to 1994/5 this might not work with the rest of your set but they are two selections i'm still rinsin' for the ladies but also for myself.
