DJ Archive

2 posts

Archival of old DJ setlists, and various other music-related activities that don’t count as “official” DJ sets for some reason or another.

Unofficial Sets

Compiled here are a number of setlists from events that I provided music for but for whatever reason don’t qualify as ‘official’ Terminates Here sets, for one of the following reason:
  • The set was prerecorded
  • The event was a ‘practice’ or kit-testing session
  • The event was so poorly attended that it was a glorified practice session.
  • The set took place in a private building (private parties in regular pubs/clubs DO count)

London Gothic Meetup 200 – 24 October 2009

There was no DJ booth here, so I took requests online in advance of the event. The set was premixed into blocks of 3 or 4 songs, with gaps to allow for requests on the night. Robert once again handled the goth rock, post-punk, new wave area, thus letting me handle all the fringe styles. No-one yelled ‘Play Some Goth’ all night, so I think we got away with it.

Mittelalter Nacht – 17 April 2010

This was the first known attempt at running a mittelalter night in London – and where better to hold it than Zeitgeist, a German Gastropub south of the river. Thanks must go to Ian for organising the whole event, and also the organisers for putting on a charity buffet, which was as tasty and filling as everything else I’ve ever eaten there!
There was no DJ booth, so sets were pre-recorded. Ian and Alan provided the bulk of the music, though I did provide one hour myself, which was played between 9pm and 10pm. To keep things varied, I managed to get some neo-folk, folk rock and ethereal tunes into my own set. Here it is:

Fire And Ice – The Wind That Shakes The Barley
Estampie – A Voi Gente Lamia – O Virgo Spelendens

Mittelalter Nacht II – 22 October 2010

For the second time in 2010, a Mittelalter Night was held at the Zeitgeist gastropub. A larger pool of DJs were called upon this time, covering everything from folk metal to mittelalter punk. My own set included a selection of more ‘electro-mittelalter’ tracks as well as some more conventional material. For technical reasons it was pre-recorded, but was played between 9pm and 10pm on the night itself.

An event run at VERY short notice in November 2013 – for financial reasons, it was a case of then or not at all. With only one attendee who wasn’t a DJ or arrived with a DJ, the whole event became more of a beatmatchers ‘live in the studio’ test session.

EOL-Era Setlists

Here is an archive of sets that I undertook in what I now call my ‘EOL Era’ in the early 00s. These sets are not representative of what I do today! I’ve got a much wider and more diverse collection now, but I don’t deny my history and thought it’d be interesting to dig these out the archive to see how I’ve progressed.
I haven’t included everything – a couple of the sICk Night In sets I did were only around 3 songs long and hence aren’t really worth saving – I played nothing in them that I haven’t played elsewhere anyway.

Metal Box – 18 October 2002

Have dug this setlist out of the archives, as it was my first attempt at doing a London nightclub, even if it was one of the many short-lived ‘Thursday night at Gossips’ affairs we had in the late 90s and early 00s. Little did I know at the time that it would be my last set for 6 years.

Mesh – Firefly
Diary Of Dreams – Chemicals
Rammstein – Mein Herz Brennt

MaxDmyz Support Slot – 11 November 2001

This wasn’t a particulary adventurous set for me, but it did preface a gig that would prove to be one of the most crazy and outrageous experiences I’d ever have at Imperial College. A year and a half after graduation

Ministry – Just One Fix
Nine Inch Nails – Wish
Rammstein – Links 2 3 4
White Zombie – More Human Than Human

Whiplash – 2 June 2001
