I had A BLAST last night at one of my regular spots.

A lot of times I play Capo on Fridays. And while I always really enjoy the place, on Friday I normally worked all day in the office and then have to get myself wound up for a long night. I enjoy the DJing, but it's always a little squeezed in. I normally don't have quite as much time during the week to mess with music, or whatever. But last night I got to play the Saturday night slot and it was on fire.

There was a private party in the space with no DJ going on when I got in. It looked like a birthday party, but they had a fun playlist running and already had the sound system decently loud.

So when I went on at 10, the energy in the room was fairly good already versus a totally cold start. I threw on a mix for about 15 minutes while I got myself settled and after that... hit it.

We ended up having a line to get in until a little after 1:30 (I was told, I can't see it). And basically a capacity crowd almost all night. Really amazing energy and it let me mix and keep it moving even faster than I normally would for that long of a set. Setlist below:

Bouncing off of Chuck's post...
did you ever get a request during one of those quick-in-and-quick-out mixing sessions
and the requester got pissed cause you only played one minute of the song?
Not being snarky, or cutting on your mixing style...
I just never did many club gigs.

Not being snarky, or cutting on your mixing style...
I just never did many club gigs.
I don't take a ton of requests (I'd prefer 0) at a gig like this. But when I get a few, I've never had anyone complain about that.

I think there are a few keys that make this all work:

First and foremost - doing it smoothly. If it just sounds like you're cutting off the music constantly... the experience is awful. The transitions have to be smooth, the phrasing has to make sense. You shouldn't ever be cutting things out in the middle of a verse.

It also helps to know what verses people really like. For example, the song Bottoms Up (played around 11:45) - everyone seems to love the Nicki Minaj feature. I always have girls sing along to the "All around the world - can you hear me?" line. So I make sure to leave that song on through that verse instead of cutting it after the first verse and chorus.

There were also a couple times where I transitioned a song but I left the same beat on underneath.

For example at 11:26 I played Dua Lipa - Don't Start Now, and then slid into American Boy over the same Dua Lipa beat. So literally the rhythm stays identical, but instead of a 2nd verse of Dua Lipa you hear Estelle's vocal come in and everyone sings along to it. Unless I make a bad mistake doing that... people would barely know the song changed.

I did the same thing going from Bubble Butt to Twerk by City Girls. Both of those are the same underlying beat. The flow on the dance floor never shifts when you do it, it just adds a little bit of a change vocally. So it's almost like playing a track with a hype intro on it to get 8 bars of Bubble Butt, and then slide right into the real song.

Finally - the song you're coming into needs to be just as exciting as the one you're leaving. When all of these songs are coming on, I want a bit of that "Oh S#!*" moment of a reaction. If the crowd is excited about the next song, it doesn't matter if they liked the song before it.

--
This place is in a decent part of town, but there have been some issues with a fight from time to time. But I think mixing at this speed helps to keep that activity down. I'm never at one tempo for more than 20 minutes, and you just don't have time to get into that rut where one group dominates the room. The mixture of house, hip hop, throw backs, a few crazy sing alongs... It should be moving fast enough to be exciting and also keep shifting the energy. That also keeps the bar rocking all night. The hip hop crowd dances for a few tunes and when I crank it back up to house music they go to the bar.

I try to do it all in a way that is thoughtful and creates a really fun night for a huge chunk of people at the same time. Which... I think is why I hold such a good crowd in there. My name isn't a draw on a flyer, but if the room fills up I can keep them happy.

Your explanation does make sense.
Being a small Pennsylvania town...I think it's just a different "club mentality" around here.
We don't really have a lot of places where it's non-stop NEW dance music all night.
The ones that have dance music, usually have totally different music the rest of the week.

I'd suggest it is being delivered smoothly & artfully...and I concur.
