Gah! (Of wireless networks, testing and DJ sets, in two posts)

I wrote a beautiful post and stupid offline client ate it! … it was like “beep beep beeep beep beep” and I was like…. “uhn?”

It was a good post.

Anyways, trying the online interface this time.

DJing again

After 21 years away from the scene, a friend of mine ask for my services for a party next friday. Granted, it’s not radio or club, but it’s nice to do these things again πŸ™‚

I’m not going to attempt anything like a live performance, partly because I have exactly zero equipment and partly because I’m kinda rusty. So I decided to prepare a series of sets, burn them to some CDs and feed them to the player at the party place (Solstice Cafe’)

I’m leaning towards three themed sets. The 1st one is a 80s new wave progressively mutating toward 2000s remixes of the same songs. Interesting concept πŸ™‚

  • New Gold Dream – Simple Minds
  • From the Edge of a Deep Blue Sea – The Cure
  • I Love a Man in Uniform – Gang of Four
  • Heart Like a Wheel (Extended Mix) – Human League
  • Blue Monday (Live @ Electronic Ecstasy 1993) – New Order
  • Bizarre Love Triangle 95 – New Order
  • Promised You a Miracle – Simple Minds
  • New Years Day – U2
  • New Years Dub – U2 vs Musique
  • Cars (Spahn Ranch Mix) – Gary Numan
  • Tell Me When (Utah Saints Mix) – Human League
  • See-Saw – Monaco
  • You Should Be Dancing (Bee Gees Cover) – Monaco
  • Crystal (Porno Club Mix) – New Order
  • A Question of Faith (Anubian Nights Mix) – Gary Numan

Like it?

A preview of this set can be found here (128bps wma format).

I have yet to decide about the other two sets, but I’m probably going for a trip-hop one (Massive Attack, Portishead, etc) and a hi-nrg one. No idea what to put in this one…

Comment, you slackers! *whipcrack*
