Day 3

Hmm what to do today on a rainy Saturday afternoon... OK So I am not exactly off to a flying start. My MIDI controller hasn't arrived yet, and my laptop is dead so recording a mix isn't possible.

I have however been constructive and set up a myspace (add me!) and a Qik account should I ever decide to stream live or whatever...

So a bit more background then. Let's make one thing clear. I am not claiming to start DJing from scratch, to pro in one year... I think it's important to be honest about this. I have been DJing for coming up to 1 year, by that I mean mixing, playing with records etc (IE not playing out).

Am I any good? Well that's subjective obviously, all I will say is that I can beat match, but I still have my bad days. I like to play bangers, or driving tunes, though my style is changing with time.

I just wanted to clarify, I am not a total novice, in fact I have DJ'd at friends house parties etc a few times in the past, heck even at a club. The key point being tho that I was merely just playing records, and I wasn't booked... it was something I put on myself.

What I want to achieve here is something much more than that, something exciting, something people know about, something tangible.

I am basically starting from the same place, if not a bit behind many of the other talented bedroom DJs out there, so my aim is to prove that what I achieve, can in fact be achieved by anyone.

I am still loosely forming my plan of attack, this I will work on over the week. But there will be a structure, a method to the madness.

I really wanted to get some pictures up, but rain has called off play, so that will be tomorrow.

In the mean time
