Opening dj set need help please!!!

HELLO! I am in dire need of assistance in assembling an opening dj set for MT EDEN! HOLY SHIT! All i need is you guys to throw me some great opening tracks, not bangers but something that will psyche everyone up for MT EDEN!!!! If i can get this spot I will forever be grateful for all eternity for those helping me. The

1) Create a 20 min mini mix that would be the ideal opening set for our Mt Eden show. Do your homework! Figure out the type of music they play and the type of music that goes with it. Don't play bangers, this is an opening slot and being an opening dj is an artform. Do something unique to get our attention!

2) Host your DJ mix on YOUR soundcloud page. Then head over to www.soundcloud.com/react_presents and "FOLLOW US" then click on "DROPBOX". Drop your mix into our Soundcloud DROPBOX. (MAKE SURE that your mix is public so we can hear it!)

3) We will pick finalists on Monday October 3rd and announce them here.

4) We will pick the lucky WINNER on Thursday October 6th and announce him/her/it/them here.

Those are the conditions FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE HELP ME MAKE MY DREAM COME TRUE!!!

Re: Opening dj set need help please!!!

dont take offense but if you have to ask a forum for help on selecting tracks in order to help you win a slot to open for a fairly popular act, you might not be ready to do so.

that being said, if youre trying to be unique, try mixing a different genre or vibe that would set you apart but compliment mt edens style at the same time..

Just do what you do, fuck asking for advice. Play what ya like and read the crowd, if you aint enjoying the selection then the crowd aint gonna either. I imagine Mt Eden fans are pretty easy to impress though right?

Re: Opening dj set need help please!!!

First: Wrong. Ultimately it's Mt. Edens' fans you need to impress. The promoters are aware of the crowd that's coming to the event and they want to cater to their tastes.

Second: You may not have been looking for criticism but it found you. Instead of getting defensive maybe you should take this as a learning experience. We're just trying to let you know that if you're not prepared to do your own homework, find tracks that you think would work, and impress the shit out of this promoter... maybe you should rethink your approach to "breaking into" the DJ scene.

As a DJ you should be scouring your collection of (legally paid for) tunes, checking out youtube, soundcloud, and other social media sites, Beatport and other retailers, etc. and finding out what songs Mt. Eden fans love. Then from that you should start formulating just what kind of opening set you think would perfectly prep that crowd for the headliner act to follow.

Instead, you've come into this forum (and presumably others) and begun asking other people to do your work for you ("throw me some great opening tracks").

Your intentions are admirable. But your follow-through leaves a lot to be desired. Hence the criticism.
