good on you mate, first time i played out proper was in a basement club and i was shitting myself, hands shaking so much i couldn't get the needle on the start of the record

amazingly different sound compared with home setups, u dont really think of it...

started with original ses, teased in talk to frank then lifted it off for renegade, which got a good reaction, jus kinda built on from that & did ok

Obviously correct clangy beats - thats beat matching and dj'ing, but a serious fuck up and its sounding awful, you want to stop people hearing it so maybe a rewinds best.

I'm talking nudging the needle or something.

My first gig was a set before Phantasy & Eksman came on and i was cacking it. Was silent for about 2 hours before my set, plus id never used the pioneer DJM600 so was worried i fuck up on that and had never played anywhere with a really loud system so i was panicking big time! Once i had done first few mixes though was fine and smashed the place up, just like a rhino would if one escaped from the zoo, had 2 gin & tonics and happend to turn up to the club i was DJing at!

My time I played out was at a house party for NYE tears back, again no monitor speaker, couldn't hear a thing... very difficult...

Played more parties and a couple of clubs since then, playing in a club with proper paying customers is weird man, people have paid money to get in so if you're whack they're gonna be pissed at you...

Luckily, that's not happened to me yet, but it's always nerve wracking before you go on, I always have a beer or two, next thing you know you've forgotten your nerves and begin to enjoy yourself...

had mine at a mate's party at easter, started off b2b with another guy who had been mixing a couple of years (i'd only been doing it 6 months), then he left me to it for 45 minutes or so. Only problem I had was that one tune just kept going out no matter what, so i just faded it in and killed the bass on the other and everyone was off their tits anyway I don't think they noticed.

my bird missed the whole thing though 'cos she was busy gassing to her mates!

Had a few nice comments off some randomers about the mixing, and I was buzzing for a week after :D
