Week three of the lockdown brings us round two of my most-DJ’d music countdown. Enjoy the second batch of tracks.

Being a complete geek, I now have the full list on a spreadsheet, which auto-generates the HTML tables used to show it in the blog. All I need to do now is find preview links, make the Spotify playlist, write some descriptions, then copy-paste into the blog. What could be simpler?

As we have at least ten weeks of lockdown to enjoy, it occurred to me to do a series of posts of my most-DJ’d music – so I’m starting a weekly series of posts, where each week I’ll post another ten tracks from my most-played list. Here’s the first ten swing tracks to get things started.

As we have at least ten weeks of lockdown to enjoy, it occurred to me to do a series of posts of my most-DJ’d music in both swing and blues– so I’m starting a weekly series of posts, where each week I’ll post another ten tracks from my most-played lists. Here’s the first ten blues tracks to get things started.

This year marked my third year DJing at the wonderful Chase Festival, and my second as DJ coordinator. As ever, I had an absolutely blast.

This set list was requested by a few people – and please accept my apologies for posting a little later than I’d intended.

This year, there were two fantastic Chase after-parties, on the Friday and Saturday nights, and to cut a long story short, on one of the late night venues, while a Lindy room was rocking it upstairs, downstairs some blues happened. I’d had a small equipment crisis, and mislaid some of my sound gear – luckily it was found the following day – so I was DJing “blind” – and couldn’t preview anything. This set, in consequence, consisted of a whole bunch of my blues favourites – so there will be some overlap with earlier setlists, but I hope you all find it useful nonetheless. Enjoy!

Following on from At The Chase 2018: Competition DJing Pt 2 (Strictly Lindy) – this is the final part of my Chase competition DJing… and far and away the most challenging to find music for – for two reasons.

First – it’s probably the highest-level competition I’ve yet to play music for. Even though this is just a qualifying round for the cup (the final will be in 2019) – qualifying for the qualifiers is far from easy… Secondly – unlike the other Chase competitions, I was providing the music for the final. So… no pressure.

I was thinking about a few of the stranger things that have happened in the time I’ve been DJing, and thought it would be amusing to make a list for your entertainment. So in no particular order:
