    Did an open deck night with the Nu-Music society at uni, had 30 minutes on the decks between an guy playing breaks and a house dj... i think it went ok bar 2 mixes that were a bit dodgy and i had to switch real quickly...

    the place was dead though and there was nobody dancing or anything, but i didnt get booed off or anything so happy days :D

    i got such a buzz off it though, before this id only played at parties with mates around and stuff, this was completly different, nice and phat sound system etc, technics, phat pioneer mixer, decent headphones...

    It's such a rush just standing behind the decks man, before you've even put a tune down!

    Even better when there's a big old crowd having it right in front of ya :D :D

    You got a regular thing then?

    Congrats man...

    I remember my first set, it was at Legends in Sutton a few years back, such a dive but it was packed and everyone was having it.

    Such a great feeling. Big up

    :rave:

    yea i think it could be more regular - was speaking to the organizer and he was talking about putting me on again at a better time, which sounds pretty promising :D

    it felt so different to playing at parties and stuff though, knowing people were paying to be in there and stuff, im still pumped 12 hours later :p

    I can "feel" the enjoyment you got from the gig, by just reading your message!! I wish we could bottle that feeling and use it when we are having a bad day! :D

    Good Luck with more gigs
