So I’ve uploaded a live set. A two hour epic dance journey I’ve mixed for Ecstatic Dance at Odessa Amsterdam. Great thing about Ecstatic Dance is, it brings together people who really come to dance and if you give them good stuff they’ll be with you for the full ride, dancing their hearts out for 2 hours straight from the first till the last track! A gift which, I think it’s safe to generalize here, a DJ is not given at every gig.
This was a particularly special night, where everything just seemed to work. I felt connected with everyone on the floor, felt what was needed and when.. I could play the music I really wanted to play and improvised the journey fluently without dropping the ball and got really warm feedback afterwards. Thats about as satisfying as it can get for me. Usually after such a night I go “ah I wish I had captured this one..” Not this time! I felt the magic in the air and recorded the whole trip. Although maybe taken out of its context a little here, I think the excitement of that night still comes across.. Let me know in the comment section on my mixcloud what you think and.. thanks for tuning in!
