I am going to be designated DJ for tommorow night party. I need to entertain bunch of plebs (cca 100 people) at frat party and still need to play decent music. I thought about:
and dome older classics (Velvet Underground, Doors, Pixies, Bowie,...)
Any suggestions /mu/?
I like all that music but if you are going to play music for a bunch of frat bros plebes i dont think they are going to to take a liking to the smiths...
You arent playing the music you like you retard, you play the music the room likes
I'm here to help.
A New Order 12" cut is perfectly acceptable if sandwiched in the middle of other vaguely danceable tracks. Scrap everything else.
Most frat parties, hell most parties in general (for young people) rely on rap Start with Snoop Dogg and work your way to less funky rap. Play Drake if you want girls to like your playlist.
Nero is good brostep, and some Calvin Harris or any producer you can stomach is worth a couple of songs. You can try to play actual dance tracks but from your list I'm not sure if it'll work out.
I just DJ'd a semi-plebby semi-patty party this past weekend so I'm here to help you, OP. It's great that you're preparing a setlist. Just be able to read the room and deviate from that at a moment's notice.
On the plebby side of my set I threw in some Daft Punk and Justice. I'm not sure if you're using software, turntables or simply playing a playlist, but I recreated some Alive 2007 tracks on the spot with what shitty software I have. Get Lucky into D.A.N.C.E. was a real crowd pleaser. Depending on how tasteful your crowd is, Michael Jackson would work too. Don't play Beat It.
You're playing for people who want to dance. Not /mu/. Act accordingly.
