Ft Lauderdale - United States
Been a Disc Jockey for some 35+ years in New York/Long Island and Florida working some of the best clubs during their times. Clubs come and go and I have no regrets working the crazy hours. If you are familiar with Long Island, back in the late 70's and early 80's I worked every OBI which their were 3 of them. The one in Hamptons was outrageous during the summers as it was the place to be. Spinning in front of 1500 to 2000 people every Friday & Saturday night and then Sunday afternoon was an absolute blast. Then competing with the likes of Speaks and Channel 80 was lots of fun. I was in a New York City record pool for many years with Glen Friscia and Eddie Arroyo. Driving around on Fridays going from one record company to another was an experience. I got everything and then some. By time the mid to late 80's came around my favorite genre, Latin Freestyle.It was smoking and had a 4 year run at this club in Bayshore called Club Paradise. One thing about latino's they know how to party!!!. Perfect club in the perfect area. I had every track act in this place which only had a 600 capacity. To date it was by far the best club I ever worked. Hanging out with Stevie B, The Cover Girls, TKA and my favorite artist during that time, Cynthia. She was only 16 when she played my club but man she had some serious talent. It's a shame latin freestyle only had a small run but for those years I would put that sound up against anything. The music was real. The crowds partied real hard and to think that there were barely any videos made and still to this day freestyle is still strong. Every now and then I pull out the autographed pictures from all the artists that I broke in this club and I smile. I hung up the headphones a few years back and only break them out to do a classic disco or freestyle night. Once the music went out of my element I lost my taste. I have a huge collection of classic disco and freestyle remixes and with my mixmeister fusion I do some mixing for the friends and for the car. Can't beat getting 7.5 hours of non stop mixing on one cd. I also appreciate real good house music with piano grooves and rifs.

Just turned 64 in September. You give me confidence that I can get back into mixing, once I get good (not to expensive) equipment. Lol. Thank you from us young heads.

Thank you DjSssnake, for your quick reply. I am brand new to house-mix.com but I am lovin' it. Again, I'm no DJ, but I am a music collector. The only way I am a DJ is purely in my oun head. One common technique I quickly grow tired of is when an oldies track sounds like 'Stars On 45", or start with excessively long beat intros. I understand they are useful for live mixing, but it's terrible for listening. One song I wish I could mix is the original hit by Friend and Lover, 'Reach Out of The Darkness" Even though there's a few remixes, sampled and covers, including a re-recording by F&L, nothing moves me the same way as the studio hit and the remix I have in my head. This song has the element of being repetitive, done wrong, it can be painful to listen. Somehow the studio version got everything right. It has this great beat (I'm sure you know it): dun-dun-dunT--da-da-da-dunT, dun-dun-dunT--da-da-da-dun. with the lyrics: I think its so - groo.vy now that we are - fin.aly...(gettin' together) I think it's won.der-ful to know that we are - fin.aly...(gettin' together) And I am mixing in my head: I think it's won-won-won (vocals fading out over beat) I think it's so-so-so (vocals fading out over beat) and, I think it wah. (vocal hard stop on the beat, beat continues) I think it so. (vocal hard stop on the beat, beat continues) I never spoke about this before...
