    Hello guys

    right i've been asked to dj at my friends 18th and she is having it at a rented out night club in our local town, so in a effort to please everybody she wants me to play a bit of everything. So I've got all the house, dance and hardcore sorted I'm just struggling with d&b, so what i need is some suggestions on tracks that will get people up on the dance floor that might not usually listen to it. So far ive got charty stuff like pendulum and a few hip hop covers like high contrast - gold digger and that snow patrol cover but i need to fill an hour, so some suggestions would be awesome

    cheers guys,

    wills

    Thought id leave this to the DJs but no ones replied..

    From my point of view if your mixing to a non dnb crowd then its not worth trying to convert anyone, especially if your playing house and dance too!

    So saying that id stick to what you was already going with, remixes of more mainstream tunes and a few from the Pendulum boys to 'break it up' so to speak.

    Check out some other High Contrast remixes and have a hunt for some bootleg ones too.

    I'd say your on the right track with Pendulum and High contrast... Can't go wrong with a little bit of Subfocus and maybe TC. I would just stick to stuff with lots of Melodies and synths, everyone can dance to that!

    Did you want us to name specific tunes?
    And also... Are you going to try and play 4 different genres in one hour? :|

    High Contrast "If We Ever" & his album "Tough Guys Don't Dance"
    Influx Uk "Its Love"
    Logistics "Now More Than Ever" LP
    Nu:Tone & Natalie Williams "System" (Matrix & Futurebound RMX)
    TC "Deep"
    Apex - "Space Between" (feat Ayah)
    High Contrast - "Everything's Different" (Calibre remix)
    Shy FX "Feelings"
    Marky & XRS "LK"
    Just a few i can think of that work well in a party, that won't be full of the usual DnB heads.
    Hope these help

    :ditto:

    Try:
    Matrix & Futurebound - American Beauty Remix
    Candi Staton - You Got The Love (Hold Tight Remix)
    Future Sound Of London - Papa Nu Guiny (High Contrast Remix)
    Axwell - I Found You (High Contrast Remix)

    Ive found that remix's and bootlegs go down well with a no dnb crowd as its songs that they know

    if u feel like turning it up a notch on the grime-o-meter:

    the force - dropzone
    limewax - 1/2lb
    dj hazard - busted
    dj hazard - mr happy
    tc - game over
    tc - warhead rmx
    that ladies night tune, forget who its by
    qemists - stompbox (that'll go down real well)

    if u wanna chill it out a lil i suggest:
    anything by martsman (step up specifically)
    rufige crew - is this real
    dj die - slowburn, other side is sick too
    jenna g w/ chase n status - in love (u gotta buy an ep for that tho :\)
    logistics - together vip
    clipz - work it out vocal

    hope this helps :)
