Sound and Machine

Opening for Carlo Lio was a great experience. I had to think and research well for my set, him being a versatile international talent whose techno style varies, yet its always on point. Thoughts: how do I want to start steering the "ship"? What music should I put in my digi crate? I m usually armed with about 80 new tracks for any major event, but I didnt know what to focus on this time: I felt the music had to be techno, but not too fast (duh - I m opening)but headlining the last couple times I caught my ears wired toward peak hour energy material that was not going to work. Other decision: shall I play american or european techno, what to have as a back up in case the crowd is not ready for the brand new releases from just days and weeks ago? shall I have something familiar - should I sneak in deeper stuff? or how about some minimal or acid tracks? Words vs no words ( I prefer zero vocals but wanted to push my boundaries a bit) Will Carlo be able to link in and continue the "story" us opener started? I felt I did alright ;) Love thinking about music, the audience, bringing new underground stuff to the table, and ponder about the crowds reaction. I feel at one point if its done right the audience and the DJs think as "one", vibe together - and thats the BESTEST feeling ever for a musician like me. Thanks for all who came out to the event! If you are on Resident Advisor, I would greatly appreciate your support by "favoriting" / " liking" me as one of your artists. The RA website has been lately the go-to source for many talent buyers, club owners, and promoters - hence the need to boost those numbers a little bit ;)
