Here is another video of Ollie working the deck at Bar 13.  Very focused, he managed to ignore the drinks, girls, noise, and lights.  I guess a DJ has to filter out all the distractions, and concentrate on counting the beats, lining up the tracks, … a matter of ear-hand-eye coordination.  Ollie has a Serato Scratch Live setup at his apartment and he demo’d it for me.  What a piece of toy to have around.  Like an instrument, he can practice at home.

I had put together a new dance playlist for every one of my parties – some of you may remember the New Year’s Eve parties at my apartment off Times Square.  For a short while, I actually considered enrolling at the same DJ school – Dubspot – which also teaches electronic music production. Well, I have to postpone that phase of my education for now.


Ollie played mostly deep house which is a genre of house music that I like.  Check out François K – a well-respected local producer who plays regularly at Cielo.  Here are some of his CDs that I have and can recommend, and a link to his store on Amazon.
