In recent months, I’ve been posting my live wedding sets that have trended towards the mainstream side of things, so here’s something a bit different – this is an electronica-heavy late-night portion of my mixset from last Saturday.
This mix is definitely NOT one that would work at many weddings I handle, but this was a pretty unique wedding crowd, and they were fully up for a set of this nature. In any case, the portion from 13 minutes in through the end of the mix (its pretty much all “Dirty Dutch House” and electro house type tracks / remixes from that point in) is not something that would work at most weddings, but if the occasion calls for it, I can certainly play a set like this.
PS – If you enjoy this kind of music (or any similar “slightly outside of the box” music for that matter), and are interested in having it played at your event, do give some thought to how your guests would feel about it. Many of my clients dig electronica or indie, but their guests are NOT fans – this being said, even the best DJ in the world isn’t going to walk in and have success playing these genres for a crowd who isn’t feeling it. So, at the end of the day, its a great practice to do a pre-wedding “reality check” regarding genres might be successful given the musical tastes of the folks on your invite list. Its kind of ironic, but as a DJ who really enjoys playing electronica-style sets (like the one featured in this post), I am usually the one trying to convince clients that they may need to tone their musical tastes down a bit in order to allow me to be successful in keeping their guests out on the dance-floor! 😉
