with the "SYNC" button, you don't need to know how to mix! now the bar staff can mix! they only need us now for our crowd reading skills!

Must be a slow night.

That might fly at a bar. But at a real nightclub, I don't think so. VDJ might do
all the mixing for you, but you still have to have a good ear for music, i.e.
excellent track selection skills, outstanding track library/catalog and as you pointed
out an ability/skill/gift for reading the crowd. No regular bartender can do
that and still be doing his main job competently....

Me too. I have a three turntable home setup. Vinyl only.

I have 2 CD Mobile setups, one that I'm augmenting with a PC and VDJ.

IF I play at a club, which is rare these days, I go through my 12"s and
try to build/program a vinyl set.

Some clubbers don't appreciate a DJ showing up with a laptop. Some do.

The technology is all good but the bottom line is the MUSIC SELECTION. DJ Shaun Buchanan was a bedroom DJ who climbed to fame at the Saint not becuase of his mixing skills but because of his amazing ear and his music selection. It was jaw dropping at times.

i think this exactly

my fave quote from someone in the industry was from dc the brain supreme(tag team) he said"it dont matter if you got two f#$ked up turntables and a radio shack mixer as long as you playig the right sh*t at the right time"

i see many ppl rocking all kinds of setups and havin a blast

there are three kinds of people in the world

those who make things happen
those who watch things happen
and those who wonder what happened

if you can afford the est the rock the best
if not then do it by any means nessisary

there are may ways to do this and exploring all of them is cool

look a kerri chandler he owns most every kind of source player out there

This is true, sometimes you have THAT crowd, THAT music, BUT mediocre sound gear, and you STILL ROCK THE FUCKIN HOUSE, and THE PEOPLE TO THE CORE, THE VERY ESSENCE! HISTORICAL MOMENTS!

However, when U have THAT music, THAT crowd, AND THAT sound too, those are the NIGHTS and CLUBS and DJ,s that become LEGEND!

The mornings we left breathless, woke up at 9PM the next night, still out of breath, and rocking to mixes and music not playing now, shit you played 20 hours ago, two months later, someone stops u on the street, tells u that mix of this track, into that cut, at sometime, peaked the night, at you know which club, was my whole life right there. And we remember the mix, the time, the feeling, THE SELF SATISFACTION!

The BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD!

U start reliving the night in your mind, what a stage our brains are for such GRANDIOSE SHOWS played to only 1 individual is, OURSELVES! I have six full scale Hollywood studios in my head, couple of porn shops, a few jewelry stores, car dealerships, restaurants, and even an entire city or two workin full time, all the time, in my mind! Damn overcrowding.

The #1 drug of choice in my book.

i know my post makes no sense as i defended richie for using sync

but if your playing all your own re edits and production then theres room for creativity and if fk uses a sync or bpm thats cool hes paid his dues

i have no problem going to a club and dancing to anyone using a bpm or sync it dont matter


but if you do it all

then props

its all good

i dont take any of it serious anyways

Exclamation

WOW so true Scott ! I remember some amazing nights at the Saint. The Music would build all night long and hit its peak at about 3:30 am. Then it would drop its tempo into my favorite part of the entire eveing. It was called "Sleaze Music" later they called it "Morning Music" but it was the Sleaze Music that rocked supreme. People came from all over the world to go to the Saint to hear Terry Sherman, Warren Gluck, Shaun Buchanan, Mark Thomas play "Sleaze Music" This was the DJ's chance to do their own thing and shine. It was beyond description.

You left the next day at around 11:00 or Noon with the music and mixing still swirling around in your head. It lasted for days.

My most memorable night was Shaun Buchanan's Farewell performance on February 23, 1985. He was diagnosed with AIDS and knew he was dying. He wanted to say a final goodbye to all of his Fans before he returned home to the UK. For me he was a legend and while his mixing skills technically were not as good as some (i.e, Warren Gluck) his music selections were astonishing and the best I have ever heard. In that regard he has no equal.

In fact, Ian Levine produced "Close to Perfection by Miguel Brown" especially for Shuan to play as Sleaze Music at The Saint. Another classic track he made famous at the Saint was "Sound of My Heart by Sleeping Lions"

The night of the party he raffled off his Turntables and as the night built he played the following combination:

(1) Magic Bird of Fire by The Salsoul Orchestra
(2) Remember Me by Diana Ross
(3) No Regrets by Martinique
(4) Love Is Everywhere by Anthony & Rose

There was not a dry eye in the room, it was just too emotional and he was a true champion and so very brave. I have posted that live performance here for everyone to enjoy http://www.nycsaintmusic.com/Public/Shaun-Farewell/

The small file named Shaun Farewell is the actual portion of the night I have described above. In his honor, I have decided to release the entire performance for that night. The sound quality is not the best but remember the reel to reel was over 23 years old.

Shaun was rarely photographed but I did get this picture of him taken at Fire Island.

For you younger ones that don't know anything about the Saint, check out the Original Saint website I am in the process of rebuilding. http://www.nycsaint.com/

This site was donated to me by Sal Occhipinti and it was created in the early 90s as a tribute to his partner Carl Almodovar. While Sal never visited the Saint personally, Carl was an original Bartender and had many things saved which Sal used to create this site.

I started a chat forum and collect everything Saintly and its located here http://www.themusicliveson.com/forums/

Probably one of my greatest finds is a piece of live video taken inside the Saint. (Look down the page a little and you will see a few Saint Videos) The most interesting are the interviews with Bruce Mailman the owner of the Saint. He also owned the famous St Marks Bath House.

Enjoy !

Wow, thats some tracklist, those were the good old "Hi eneregy" dayz. I do believe that was the category back then. One song that comes to mind was Hills of Kat Mandu and the break, timeless, I would still play that today

"Secession – Touch" wow, you took me back, one of my favorites
Yaz
Dead or Alive
Divine
Lime
Hazel Dean
Damn, there are so many classics from that era

Hi,

I have the Behringer BCD 3000 with Deckadance(from the makers of Fruity loops). I love it! It saves my back and time. If I would have known that it(DJing equipment)was going to be so simplified , I would have saved a bunch of money. Anybody can do it, but you still have to have mix and crowd reading skills to rock!

Reference : My Podcast

peace,
Gojay
