Lounge AC30 DJ set

Recent Entries · Archive · Friends · Profile

* * *
The inaugural Lounge AC30 went well. I played for about an hour, from 2 MP3 players (there aren't any CD decks there), after a chap with an iPod and before someone with a Sony Vaio and DJ software.


You'll recognise a lot of old favourites in the list below;

  • Alter Boy - In Space (a FourPlay remix)

  • Mandorris - Portamento

  • Cartwheel - Yellow Keys

  • Girls Are Short - Karate Ninjas

  • ninetynine - Wöekenender

  • Broadcast - Come On Let's Go

  • Prop vs. Stereolab - Statice

  • Minimum Chips - Black

  • Donna Regina - Snow Is Only Frozen Water

  • Azure Ray - For No One

  • Mirah - Of Pressure

  • The Paradise Motel - Is Rain

  • The Boo Radleys - Joel

  • The Bodines - Heard It All

  • Swirl - Strangelands

  • The Field Mice - September's Not So Far Away



My set was well received; people liked what I played (tracks that received specific compliments included the Alter Boy FourPlay remix, the Girls Are Short track, the Broadcast and the ninetynine) . Other bystanders were perplexed by the fact that I was playing from two MP3 players, and wondered how one could do that. Anyway, I should be back there in a few weeks doing another set; and there's also the prospect of my regularly DJing at an indiepop night that's currently being organised (which will be fun, if it's anything like Fanclub/Poplounge).

Whoa rogue typo in the close bold tag...

Anyway, it's good that your radical DJing style (TWO mp3 players!) is confuddling people.

what ever happened to the members of the 'Motel? Aside from Merida being on a few Undies tracks, that is?

They moved to London and broke up. Matt Bailey briefly played bass in Sir, Matt Aulich joined some other band, and Charles (I think) stayed in the UK. No idea about the others.

I took a look at the photos of the venue on their website... didn't look like what I expected. How was the atmosphere there? Seemed rather businessy or something.

Well, it is London. Though the venue is reasonably relaxed. Most of the patrons there were Club AC30 people, and with shoegazer-type music on the speakers, it was quite agreeable. The chap who runs it is quite friendly and sociable too.
