Yikes, I'm up already and to be honest I don't even know why. I got home around three thirty last night and then check some mails and headed off to bed around 4'ish. The OLF party was enjoyable last night, but D and I both agreed that we're getting old, and he's 8 years younger than me or something of that magnitude.
It seems the new trend in music is break beat, or that's what I'm gonna call it. You take a song, play 10 seconds - if that much of it - and then play another track. While doing so, you make sure the beats of both tracks do not match! Let's look at an example :
Pom Pom Pom Pom (7 seconds) Boh Boh Boh Boh Boh (9 seconds) Kadah Kadah Kadah Kadah (3 seconds) Pom Douf Pom Douf POM DOUF.
In order to compensate, you turn up the bass as loud as possible, so the audience will no longer hear the sequence above, but only BOM BOM BOM BOM BOM BOM BOM, and they'll go wild. Who said being a DJ was difficult? Now, the Magical Flying Thunderbirds were suffering from the same problem if you ask me, though they did a rather nice set. The audience seemed to like it, and I suppose that's what counts. I had a good evening/night out, enjoyed the party, and will gladly return next year.
Thanks for the invite, S! And now go get some sleep, I think you can use it...
