  1. Great insight. I’ll put it to you this way. Its 1030am right now, I am at work and Im logged into my Serato, working on different stuff to drop tonight during open and closing sets. The Middle/PEAK HOUR stuff stays the same, cept you can always switch the order, progression and spice the set up with classics as well. If you are a DJ who values your position, You are out there thinking of new and creative ways to stay fresh, esp. in a residency situation. I know the staff knows all your mixes in and out. Shock em! Shock the crowd too.

  2. another good post, ive started the night a few way yall talkd about. at one of my residencies i would start with rock in the 100-110, like sugar ray fly, jack and diane, in the air tonight (discotech remix) and kinda work my way up to chill house, then when ppl would come in i would go with stuff like morgan page, and september, then go from there. and for the end of the night i would bring it down to the 80bpmss, chill stuff and what not , i would say the most out there song i ever ended the night with was summer girls-lfo, did the trick, but alot of girls kinda stayed back, but after it ended it wasnt a problem, lol

  3. “Baby Come Back” by Player is a good end of the night song
