Almost the same. I did a bit of the circuit upt north/midlands late 90's early 2000's. Notts, Sheff & Manc. I'm massively into deep/electro house at the mo (kinky movement, inland knights etc). Back in the day I did warm up sets for the dream team, Mat Jam Lemont etc funky house sh#t
. Started for the music and to meet girls... Met one and she wasn't to keen on me doing it anymore! Go figure?! These days I've a mix of hip hop, house (lots of old shit, vocal piano goodness), dnb, loads of soul/Motown and my old indie collect from back in the day.
I play in my bar every now again and the kids crowd round looking at the decks trying to figure it out
HTFR have my wish list and pin number to get some stuff i lost and tracks I don't seem to be able to get on wax. Think a set of CDJ'S are calling sad to say
I played in a few clubs around Birmingham, The Steering Wheel, Bakers, Stoodi's, and further afield like the The Sound Factory in Manchester, them were the days, would jump at the chance to spin some choons in a club again though.
I used to love HTFR, remember when Jason opened his first 'shop' as such in an office block in the centre of Brum, it was like walking into a treasure room, especially when DJ's like Pete Tong sent boxes of records to him to sell but since they've moved to the new place they've stopped the browsing of the old vinyl, only the new stuff in the shop now
Why don't you just go with Traktor Pro to mix with instead of CDJ's, that way you can still have the control & feel of using vinyl but playing MP3's from the laptop
