In Topic: Where To Get Your Music From?

Obviously a little (a lot) biased here, but I'd wholly recommend subscribing to a legitimate music pool.

Often the 'pools will offer many different discs in varying styles on a regular monthly basis, whilst providing affordable back catalog and themed 'collections'.

In Topic: Back-up Issue

19 November 2013 - 04:40 PM

Yeah I'd seriously recommend using an automated, incremental backup system.

I've had great experience with Time Machine on the Mac and Todo Backup on my XP system.

Never underestimate the need for a good, reliable backup.

I would also recommend something like Crashplan for a complete last ditch safety net.

Good luck!

In Topic: Cant Trust Laptops Fully Yet

Hey Derek,

Like many others have suggested I would recommend a CD backup at all times.

Laptops will work 99% of the time but s*ds law dictates that they will break at some point.

I would even go so far as having an iPod or similar hooked up with a few longish mixes loaded up to fall back on in case of a huge emergency.

Good luck! wallbash.gif

In Topic: Whats Best For The Mobile Dj - Traktor Pro Or Virtual Dj 7?

19 November 2013 - 03:47 PM

Yup I'd really recommend Traktor with a decent (sturdy) control surface, ideally and S4 or something similar.

Traktor really is a brilliant tool once you start digging deep into it. Remix decks and multiple cue points are very inspirational and useful if you're looking to spice up your sets.

Help :)

I'm planning a bhangra themed set/night next march and need some advice. I've tried getting into this before and it's a difficult area to learn. Ideally I'd like to get in touch with a decent asian dj that can advice on a playlist or just the right tracks to get. I need something that 'non bhangra listeners' (white people lol) will take to.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I'm afraid I can't be more help but I can definitely recommend that you play Panjabi MC - Mundian To Bach Ke. It's a classic that will most likely make the floor 'pop off'.
