    Hi, im starting leeds uni in september and just wondered if anyone had any advice/experience of taking decks to halls.

    I really dont want to pack in a skill i have worked on and been passionate about for years now but i can appreciate that if im living in such a small room right next to other people they may get pissed off by it.

    Has this affected you?? Thanks for any feedback

    As stated, get insurance... Someone will want to nick them

    I had a box room & took my decks, had a few complaints, but 99% of it was positive, was the holder of many parties, which in turn provide: Free booze, free drugs, loose women, gigs, noteriety, friends, free nights out... Etc, etc.

    I couldn't live without my turntables anyway, take 'em man, you won't regret it.

    Uni + Turntables = Sex

    Hopefully:

    Uni + Masters + Local Residency = corruption of fresherrrrrz



    Just a bit a maths for those interested.

    A proper mathematical equation needs to be designed.

    I will leave this to somebody who actually completed their masters.

    i rinsed music all day and night... it's easier at uni halls than in a flat/house if ya ask me!

    think about it... people in houses/flats tend to get up/go to bed early, students not so much! :D

    women = time + money

    Mixing = time + money

    CHOOSE YOUR LOVER CAREFULLY

    I know which one gives you less grief.


    The rest of the criteria that could be applied to both are debatable.

    Starting up at Leeds too.

    Taking my decks, no questions asked.

    Can't part me from them for a couple of months, madness!

    I've been studying in Leeds a year now. What halls you to staying in?

    btw, TAKE YOUR FUCKING DECKS. Where there's a will there's a way!! It's also essential if you want to take it further, i.e. play at house parties and try and get sets in clubs.

    Was thinking about it, but don't think so anymore.

    Might get one going in london but who knows. I'll wait till i've had a bit of an inspection of the scene. Some big nights up there though so we'll see.

    Halls is about 5 mins from the uni which is sweet as.

    There's a lot of competition in the scene up here. Me and my mate are struggling to book someone decent this year for the forthcoming Rapture events because we slacked and all the top dogs have been snapped up in and around Leeds during the next few months. You'll have a great time in Leeds though, always plenty going on.
