Dance Classics... Disco to Freestyle. It's pretty much my entire set when I'm DJing at the casinos, as their clientele is primarily in the 40-to-60 year-old age group.

My favorite segments of the night are where I've got some shock value transitions.

I've shared some videos with some of these. But I have an acapella out quick hitter of Fat Bottom Girls that I normally drop into Teach Me How to Dougie that gets a really fun reaction.

I also do a mix from Miley - Party in the USA into Britney - Hit me Baby One More Time, into Daft Punk - One More Time that is really fun for the right crowd.

I need to do some work on coming up with some new ones, but it creates really fun moments on the dance floor.

My favorite genre is Disco. Since I’m still in the College market I don’t get a chance to play it very often like I used to. 25 years ago we had a 70s Video Dance Party which was popular. Now the student like my son were born in the 2000’s. So stuff from the 90’s is considered old. They do know the Disco music, maybe they have parents like me when I’m driving I control the music. Me in the car: Shut up and listen or I’ll tell one of my long stories about the old days.

What method for transition do you use for that large BPM gap?

I slam it hard on the vocal. I think I even made a video of it at some point but I'll look later.

Basically I go from Britney singing "Hit me baby...." and cut hard into Daft Punk going "One more time!"

LOVE THE FREESTYLE. Thats what we did 90% on the old WKTU.com! I have about 5 crates of it! Wish we could play it more outhere in Denver, but really it works best in NY/NJ/Florida. That said, there are definitely some freestyle fans out here. Wish it would make a comeback and we had some new tracks!

My most recent gigs have been at a loungey bar restaurant where I play Deep House & Nu Disco.
Didnt know I'd enjoy playing Deep House as much as I do...but thats my favorite right now.
