FAITH" - a BIG DJ event coming July 31st!
right, everyone. I have some big news. Actually, historic
the past, I have avoided doing "big" multi-DJ shows that I
didn't promote. I would come up with the concepts for parties,
bring all the equipment, usually bring along my friend TMJ, and basically
work my ass off and have a good time.
never really tried to get into any of the "big" events - Assimilation,
80's Prom, etc. They didn't come looking for me to DJ, and I never
really considered being a part of them.
closest I got to such an event was providing light shows for a couple
of events - the Novachild/Tech Tonic performance last year, and Boombox
after over two decades in the industry, this is the first year that
I've decided to perform at some of these big multi-DJ events.
The first one is going to be a MASSIVE party at the Marquee
on Friday, July 31st, called TRUE FAITH.
the time of my Depeche Mode Night at
the Gypsy earlier this year, I was approached by a gentleman named DJ
Synthkon, with whom I immediately formed a bond because we had such
similar backgrounds. Like me, he listened to KTOW, he went to
Mohawk, and he went to such long-gone Tulsa clubs as Ikon and (gasp!)
the Beat Club. So, right away, things were cool. Soon, he
talked to me about "True Faith," and soon after that, I agreed
to be a part of it.
is going to be awesome.
the concept: Three accomplished, experienced DJs are getting together
to play a night focused on New Order and the Cure. Obviously,
if you're a New Order fan or a Cure fan, then you already know what
your plans need to be on July 31st.
won't just be a New Order/Cure party, though - we're also going
to be rocking a lot of other great electronic retro music, too - Depeche
Mode (duh), Siouxsie, Echo and the Bunnymen, Pet Shop Boys, Book of
Love, etc., etc. I've already been putting together my list of
tracks to bring... and I'm going to be breaking out some rare mixes
that I haven't played at any of my gigs in years upon years. I
am getting more excited about this every day.
to clarify, I'll be one of the three guys DJing, but I won't be providing
lights for this event. However, for those who haven't been there,
the Marquee has quite an impressive light show of its own... along with
a great sound system.
even going to be a Robert Smith look-alike contest! How
awesome is that?
unlike a lot of the gigs I've done over at the Gypsy (no disrespect
to the Gypsy) - There will be alcohol at this event!
Yesssss! So, you can actually get your drink on while you get
your dance on.
won't be "just another retro night." Not by a long shot.
"True Faith" is going to be one hot night at the Marquee...
Don't miss it!
Before any rumours start spreading... No, DJ TMJ is not partnering
with me on this event, but he and I are still friends and we do have
plans for another Badger/TMJ event at some point in the future.
