A few weeks ago I had a message from some old DJ friends from the 90s, and they asked me if I fancied coming back….
Word Unknown October 2019
What can I say? It was a very long night! My crew was my 13 year old daughter. It was awesome.
The venue was a squatted canal side, only accessible by boat. It was also half a mile from any vehicle access, so all of my equipment had to fit into a festival trolley.
I had hoped that my return gig would have been a bit easier, using the venue’s projectors, but given that this venue was the underside of a DLR bridge with no mains power, that wasn’t going to happen. Instead, I brought with me an ultra-short-throw projector to display above the DJ using a cheap free-standing screen which was given extra height using gazebo poles. My trusty Optoma projected across the venue directly onto the wall.
I had an amazing time. The crew were friendly. The music was great. It reminded me of the early days.
