    Just played out for the first time last night. I'm in a house music crew so I opened for some house djs.

    I made some fuck ups, but did ok mixing some easy jump up tracks. More importantly... The crowd seemed ok, but does anyone know what kind of DNB house peeps may enjoy most? Atleast until I start getting some DNB venue gigs. Cause I have a feeling I'll be opening like this for a while.

    If they're a minimal house crowd then some Autonomic beats maybe? Like really minimal stuff.

    But if they like their proper energetic house then probably some commercial liquid.

    Mainly electro house. Yeah I didn't drop any dancefloor tunes. I wanted to, but seemed like time flew by. I was thinkin like Polygon, Tear U Down, I Remember (J Majik and Wickaman Remix). I played Charlie Jones Love Games and Northern Lights In N Out. But Drumstep and grimey jump up seemed to get more reaction. The punchy snares. Some NW2 Tiger Tail. :D

    Doesn't matter if u can mix or scratch or pull off 9 deck double drops!
    Learning to read crowds and please majority's is a skill only experience can teach!
    My advise, if ur new to dj ing out, enjoy urself man! Roll with it and just do what u do, make it work 4 u!

    Plenty of tunes you can use to switch from house to dnb aswell without having to stop the music.. Dirtyphonics remix of Polygon for example :) as Krispy said somewhere up there! ^^^ .. Not sure if he meant the remix though
