Making a Winning DJ Set

The Process behind the scenes

Well I got it, finally closed out a second win in the BeFm Expat DJ Contest, that really is a mouthful. It was good to get the win but it was a long time coming and should really have been mine a lot early but it is what it is. And in the end I ended up getting quite a lot of prize money from the contest as well as good photos and video footage over the years so all in all, it was worth it along with the fact that it was always a good excuse to go to Busan.

With that in mind, I might as well take a closer look at my set and break it apart since not only did my set come out really well, it also worked really well and there are aspects of it that I will def use pretty often as I do go forward with my DJn (however much longer that will ultimately last however) This will also be a bit of a breakdown of how I like to structure my DJ sets and the thought process that goes behind it. Might prove useful to some people and interesting to know for others. Continue reading “Making a Winning DJ Set”

Unleashed Vol 1

Throwback post! Now that I have some time on my hands, I am uploading all of my mixes and DJ material here. I now have the storage space that I will keep since these kinds of videos can’t be posted basically anywhere else these days (again, record companies, go fuck yourselves) So now that I have all my esports stuff on here, time to start bringing my Video Mixes here too

Here is the blurb from when I originally posted this video years ago! Talks a bit about how I made these.

DJ Blaze – SKE Ladies Hip Hop Mix

Lepore-Looking-at-Female-Superheroes-With-10-Year-Olds-1-1200-630-07141321-2

So, I finally got this mix done and finished, took awhile and I kept putting it off as other things came up (story of my life really) but got to the point where I just decided to put it down as a simple mix rather than mess around with scratch, juggles and acapellas otherwise I would have put it off even longer. So, a little bit of history behind this mix…

Initially I was asked to make a work out mix consisting of all female artists since the good people over at show kings have been interviewing and working with some of the local female Korean body sculptures/builders so having a work out mix catered to them would have been a nice fit. However therein lay the problem, finding enough songs done by female rappers that people not only know but that were also up-tempo enough with a strong enough beat to serve as good work out music. Needless to say, it was a bit of a fail. Why?

Well, think about it, how totally under represented are females in Hip Hop, name your top 20 artists, are any of them female? I highly doubt it, maybe 1 or 2 might sneak into some peoples’ lists but even if they do (Lauryn Hill would have to be up there), that’s still barely 10%. So my song pool was extremely limited, too limited to make a full mix of workout style songs so instead I decided to make it more of a Hip Hop/RnB classic cross mix so I could feature more female artists and still include songs that people would know (Using female artists from current music is even less of an option given how bad they are)

Still, even in doing so, there are obviously a few artists who feature more than others which is a testament to those artists but it is also sad that the industry has really relegated female artists to a mere after thought. Even more sad when you listen to what some of these very talented females artist had to say in their rhymes back then acting as really positive role modals for young females, a far cry from the female hip hop artists of today who are either too caught up on image or no one can understand what the hell they are saying (yes I’m looking at you Iggy)

Ill attach this article as well about Missy Elliot that gives a really good and clear view of how influential some of these female artists were and the legacy they have left behind

DJ Blaze Set List Saturday November 15

DJ Blaze Bar Fly

Well its been a little while since I put up a set list, mainly because lately at Bar Fly it really has been the same old shit even worse than usual and even looking through the song list, I’m like meh… Having to play nothing but mainstream hits… but for some reason on Sat night I got a lot of compliments for my set… I have no idea why but I’m not gonna complain lol. The one annoying thing is lately I start at 11, but between 11-12, we have to keep the volume down because the restaurant upstairs has started to complain about the noise recently… There has been no change in volume, except that it has prob been less since haven’t been that busy… All I can say to them is piss off, you knew this was a club when you bought the place about 6 months ago, so quit your fucking moaning, needless to say at 12 not only do I crank up the volume but also set the bass up even higher to make sure it vibrates the shit out of the building!
