One of my regular spots has a room where the format is “Old School.” However my personal interpretation of “Old School” as a DJ with 10yrs of experience is quite different than the owner’s interpretation. Basically, I play the same sets I used to play back in 2004-2006 and that makes everyone happy. But this is not what I call “Old School. “ Actually, I don’t know WTF to call it.
So what do we officially call this era? What’s the most universal acceptable way to let a DJ know to play nothing but Fat Joe, Nelly and 50 Cent?
The next debate… when you do play this era, how deep to you go in? Us seasoned vets undoubtedly know way too many records that were hits that younger crowds are oblivious to. My girlfriend is 26 and has never heard of Biggie w/ Bone Thungz – Notorious Thugz. She know’s DMX – Party Up, but hasn’t the slightest clue about Stop Being Greedy. So my last question is for all of you 25 younger. What do you play in your “Old School” set?
