GarageProud May Bank Holiday Weekend

GarageProud on Friday & Prophecy of House on the Sunday, I had a busy one this Bank Holiday Weekend.

Proud Camden

Proud in Camden is fast becoming my 2nd home, I was there for the Rich Homie Quan UK Tour Party (Flexin’), the launch of GarageProud, on Friday I headlined the R&B London room (at GarageProud), the end of the month I will be back to shake a leg at Spoony’s House and hopefully I will be DJing at the next GarageProud – The Summer Ball.

R&B London Room

Spread over 3 floors, I was DJing in the R&B London room. Climbing the ladder to reach the DJ Booth I could picture the former horse hospital that this venue used to be.

My Set

It has been a minute since I have played out, I do a lot more radio now (twice a week on Pulse 88) since my weekly residency at Moonlighting Night Club. The DJs on before me were good and their mixing was tight so I had to make sure my game was on point.

After judging the crowed I could tell I would have to do a Kisstory set so I started off with Where The Party At by Jagged Edge to keep the party going followed by Boogie Tonight by Tweet and Ride With You by Joe. As this was an early set 11.30 pm – 12.30 pm I decided to start off Old School and gradually work my way up so that the DJs after me could play the current hits.

Even thought the crowed clearly enjoyed my first set I was just warming up.

My next set was at 2.30 am, I was in two minds, do I stay in the R&B room or do I check out the UK Garage and House rooms. As a DJ it is always good to listen to the DJ set before yours so that you know what was played and get a feel for the crowed, as my next set was prime time I had to stick around so I quickly niped into the other rooms, there were so many nice woman of all types I could not resist lol.

I proceeded into the main UKG arena I am not sure what DJ was on it could have been Mat Jam Lamont or Pied Piper but one thing I do remember is that the vibe was lit and some serious Old School Garage tunes were being played. From the UKG room I progressed to the House – I Like It Deep Room.

I Like It Deep

In this room they were playing at the time what I believe is called Nu Disco, I do like Nu Disco as it borrowes from 80’s Electro music (wich I loved growing up as a kid) I was tempted to stay in this room but Instead I grab a drink at the bar and made my way back to the R&B London room.

Climbing the ladder to the DJ Booth I was mentally gearing myself up, I decided to mix it up the old with the new, R&B, Hip-Hop, Trap, Afrobeat and Dancehall etc. I remember dropping Beyoncé – Drunken Love, Ghost Town DJs – My Boo, Drake – One Dance, Kent Jones  – Don’t Mind, Yo Gotti – DM, Desiigner – Panda not in this order but they were all in the mix somewhere, this time I was in my element.

All in all I had a great night, nice people and good music what more could you ask for? I survived a few near falls from the ladder leading to the DJ Booth lol, so now I can see you all at the next GarageProud – The Summer Ball Friday 24th June 2016 lol.

Spoony’s House Is Back!

Proud Camden

So after a few months break Spoony’s House is back and has a new home, Proud in Camden. Proud is fast becoming a second home for me, I recently went there for the Rich Homie Quan tour launch party – Flexin’, for Garage Proud, I will return for Spoony’s House and I will be spinning at the forthcoming Garage Proud in the R&B London Room.

Spoony's House

Jazz Cafe

I started to become a regular at Spoony’s House when it was at the Jazz Cafe, as usual I was on free Guest List. I enjoyed the night for a number of reasons, I got the chance to meet up with friends that went to my school (Highbury Grove) and DJs I used to play alongside on Y2k 90.6 Fm, secondly the crowed was more my age group/mixed & thirdly I enjoy reminiscing to Oldschool Garage.

Although I don’t play UKG I was on pioneering stations like Dejavu 90.3Fm and Y2K 90.6Fm, I used to rave at Colloseum and many of my peers are well know UKG DJs & Artists like DJ Pioneer (Kiss Fm), Donaeo and Heartless Crew, I naturally respect and have love for the music.

Spoony’s House

At Spoony’s House I was treated to DJ sets by the man himself (who went to the same school as me), DJ Luck and MC Neat, DJ Fonti and a live PA by Nana performing – Body Grove (who incidently I went to the same Colledge as me) I feel at home when I am at Spoony’s House, although I am from East London I am at home in North London, I think because I went to School/Colledge there and because Y2K 90.6 Fm was based all around North London.

I am sure the legacy will continue at Proud Camden, see you all there on the 26th May!

UKG Saturdays At Far Rockaway

Far Rockaway

UK Garage Saturdays At Far Rockaway Shoreditch every Saturday. I saw the promo material for this weekly event all over the internet. This event has had guest DJs, MCs & performances from the likes of DJ Spoony, Donaeo, MC Versatile, Bushkin, Luck& Neat to name but a few.

Although I am a R&B, Hip-Hop, Trap & Bashment DJ, I was heavily into the UK Garage scene, many of the DJs, MCs and Artists I booked for some of my Club Nights (Bubblicious, Blushed & Etiquette) and I played along side many of them on Pirate Radio Stations like Y2K 90.6Fm and Dejavu 92.4Fm. So this event appealed to me, when I eventually got the hook up (free Guest List) I was excited not only because I like the scene but also because I have never sampled Shoreditch’s night life for some strange reason. I was initially told that Far Rockaway was like a pub, as I am not a fan of pubs was initially on a bit of a downer.

Anyway it’s Saturday night and I arrive outside the Far Rockaway club, all around me the streets are buzzing I feel like I am in the West End or Camden. After talking with the Bouncers who I found rather polite I meet up with my contact and we enter the club.Far from the venue being like a pub it was a cool stylish bar, well lit, clean toilets and spacious. I liked the Retro Ghetto Blasters that decorated the DJ Booth and the Skateboards that decorate the ceiling. Check out the venue here

The atmosphere was lively and the vibe felt good. I must admit the music (DJ and Host) was on point, be prepared to hear some UKG Classics. The crowed was a mixture of UKG Connoisseur (Old School Ravers ) a few tourists and people that frequent the Shoreditch area. Overall I had a decent night I will definitely go back, especially on key dates like Valentines, Bank Holidays, NYE and for Guest DJs/Live Performances.
