When Shannen’s husband asked me to perform for her birthday in Bradford, I jumped at the chance. This was the third event I’ve worked for this family and not only are they a lively bunch, they also have a wide array of musical taste, which makes for an interesting night!
The night started at 5:30pm with a modern chart mix as guests arrived with artists such as Liam Payne and J Hus. We later entertained the bunch of kids in the crowd with some party dance along tunes (although Shannen and her sister Daniella hogged the dance floor!) Soon enough we moved onto some rock classics such as Thin Lizzy and The Killers and out came the wireless microphones as the family drank, danced and sang along to their favourite hits!
Before long we had moved onto the reason these guys book me so often. My late night mix of House, Grime, garage and old skool Niche classics.
Here was my top 10 list:
- Icarus – King Kong
- Kideko – Dum Dum
- Jaxx Jones – Instruction
- Sweet Female Attitude – Flowers
- Martin Solvieg vs Skepta – That’s not me intoxicated
- Faithless – Insomnia
- Big Ang ft. Siobhan – Wifey
- David Zowie – House every weekend
- Big Ang ft. Siobhan – Over now
- Underworld – Born Slippy
And my most unusual track of the night was my Ad hoc mashup of Tom Zanetti Darlin’ vs Darude Sandstorm.
They’ve even booked me again for 2019! But something tells me I’ll be seeing them all before then… www.GoGoDisco.co.uk
