Covid 19 – A time to unit and stay safe – together – but apart!

So while we are all on lockdown, clubs, bars, restaurants, shops, gyms and life as we know it – ALL closed, and with and morale dipping because our usual lifestyles are limited, we turn to music to unite us, lift spirits and get ourselves prepared for when this is all over, and the good times and huge parties return!

Our small solution is to live stream every week on Facebook, Twitch and Youtube, to get together share new and old memories and dance the night away!

Live Streams Every Friday and Sunday 18:00 – 20:00 GMT.

Check all the previous streams here on Facebook only (Youtube and Twitch do not store)

One of the super hero’s of DJing ‘Skratch Bastid’ sets out different challenges from time to time, for DJ’s to test themselves – and his latest offering is called #TheBoxChallenge.

Requesting that DJ’s use just one sample, to cut over the unusual beat (58.5 / 117bpm) which sits outside the usual speed of hip hop / rnb (around 100 bpm)

Anyway check out my submittion and let me know what you think, adding a comment under the video with any feedback!

Enjoy.

Richie goes for the ‘Hat Trick’ in the DMC’s – Round 2!

For those who may not know, the DMC’s are considered by many DJ to be the biggest and best turntablist / DJ competition, in the world.

Every year they open their doors with an online competition, open to all DJ’s in which artists can enter, by uploading and submitting, their two minute routines, with an aim to firstly get approved, and then voted for with success, in order to get through to the next round, (a total of three) before the top 3 of each round then get to prepare a six minute routine, to impress the judges for the overall title.

Richie was delighted to be approved for the competition which he is currently sits 8th in round 2, and needs your vote to get through to the final round 3, before the judges take over voting for that final six minute routine – to crown the overall winner.

Club Batchwood’s resident Saturday night DJ is in the running to win a national award.

St Albans’ Richie Don hopes to spin his way to Miami’s Winter Music Conference with a DJ kit from Pioneer by winning the Deltic DJ of the Year 2017.

He is one of 12 who are up against a public vote – the most popular four will battle it out in front of industry professionals to decide a winner.

Richie has performed all over the country and beyond, including with Tim Westwood for MTV’s Pimp My Ride UK, at Virgin V Festival, and at Ministry of Sound Egypt in the New Year.

He said: “DJing is the job of dreams, being such a pivotal part of so many memories created, its an honour and privilege to create the energy that nightclubs are fuelled on.

“There is some great competition I am up against and it would be great to win, but whoever is crowned – congratulations in advance.”
