It was hard last night for me. A friend and DJ, Chris, at our club, AAi, has to stop doing his regular Wednesday set because of some (overall) very positive changes to his working life. Of course, I’m over the moon for him. He’s worked hard and deserves the promotion. On the flip side though, I’ve known him a little over 4 and a half years and almost all of that time he’s been djing at the club.
I’m always awed and grateful when DJs come and stay, it’s honestly what I look for when we’re after a new DJ. With only having one DJ per day (1-3pm slt) I need to find someone with the same level of commitment as everybody else. Someone who is going to make that day their own and become the small thing that people can rely on at the end of what might have been a shitty day.
I like to feel that the 2 hour set they come up with is one that they’ve moulded as if from clay, that they are excited about elements of it, that they want to share it with everybody else. They also are the kind of people who come along to everybody else’s sets too and who get inspiration from others.
I love that each and every DJ at AAi is what someone I consider special, we have a very low turnover of staff and I think everybody knows how important they are to the club as a whole.
I don’t know yet who we will hire to become our ‘Wednesday boy/girl’ but it’ll be somebody special with excellent musical taste and an indie flavour. It might be a while before we can find someone to fit Chris’s shoes.
Here’s a part of his set he did live, singing his heart out to his friends. Please excuse the terrible video skills – it’s not my forte, but it sounds great!

Want a bargain? Go pick up the fabby recolours of the Cynful Tangled Dress at The Dressing Room this round for only 99l$. I chose this yellow/black ombre because it puts me in mind of a bumblebee and my friend Becka and I enjoy a particular gesture 😀
Besom’s Camille Hair and Hat is available right now at Fameshed. The hat is a simple black with optional colour bands and comes with a HUD to change the hair colour (depending on which pack you buy of course) I am showing the blondes here.
I have only just begun blogging Drunk Panda poses and this is my first post for them. I’m sure you will be seeing much more from them in the future. The ‘Enjoy Your Life’ set is a new release at the mainstore and is aimed at guys, but I felt Meri could carry it off this time, maybe because of the hat 😀
Here’s some more pics including a ‘well lit, no shit’ shot…
Finally, here is my jigging for the rigging video
