i played my frist live show in seattle on new
years. all breakbeat set and dj smile
accompanied with scratching. all in all it was a
success and well received. the venue, emp, is
the coolest place i've seen to play a show.
right next to the space needle in downtown.
amazing building designed by frank gehry.
400 people in the bar i played and a good
portion of them dancing. that was the coolest
thing to see i think. people reacting to the
parts that you really want them to. also, i went
on right after 12am so people were definitely
into party mode.

had a few technical problems but none too
major. my laptop crashed right when i
pressed play on the first track but luckily once
it rebooted it was fine. goofed a few things
with my mixer which resulted in a loud
feedback for a few seconds. couldn't hear
some things i was playing on my virus
because dj smile's monitor was blaring the
scratching and right behind me.

learned A LOT though. the whole experience
was a trip. prepping for it, writing the tracks,
actually hearing the set on a bigger system,
the stage monitors, etc... i did get a dat of it but
haven't heard what it sounds like.

so, i must thank everyone here for all the help
over the years. i've gotten loads of advice and
that was one of the major reasons i finally got
my shit together and without too many
problems. kilo, influx and pongoid especially.

looking forward to 2003!

yeah, i was running live on mac os9.2. i
should've used osX, but didn't really have time
to install it before the show.

dj smile was actually djing before my set, so
when it crashed, i turned around and had him
put a few more records on. i don't think anyone
really noticed though.

hehehe... so cool. Glad to hear you decided to be a FLEM. There's not enough... and just what we need is someone else that knows Everything about Electronic music because he plays out! Heheheh... (that's a total joke BTW, I'm jibing at me'self more than anything.) Feels amazing, huh? Better 'n any drug... And it's great that you had a good set. Most first show stories are horror tales!

About that laptop... hehehe. This happens a lot to PC/MAc performers. Don't know why. When in the studio I have zero computer probs... but I always see FLEM's crashing and flailing around trying to get it up and running again. Good thing the DJ bailed you out!

cheers!

hmm. i really still have a lot to learn though.
won't be boasting about this one show or the
fact that i know so much now. i am just
beginning down the road of live PAs. lot's to
learn. many more times to humiliate myself
i'm sure.
