Catastrophe in the DJ Booth

Most of the time when DJing, everything goes swimmingly. You put up with the relentless requests from girls (I don't mind that part), you play the right songs at the right time, people sing and dance and every one has a good time. Other times... well things can go the other way. A catastrophe can happen that has the potential to ruin the party. This happened for me on Saturday, luckily, it only happened in the DJ booth. It was a chain of events that may have wrecked that club environment. Click through for the full story, also for more pictures of the night.

Oops, I broke my needle!

DJing has taken different forms over the last few years, but if you are still rocking the wheelz of steel, then you will need to be keeping your needles clean. Recently I had some needle tracking problems, i took a look and my needles were filthy! How does this happen? Well, dust, outdoor particles, dirt, you name it, they all fly around and eventually land on you records. Your needle then scrapes the grime from the grooves of the record and makes a nice collection of dirt. The quick way to clean this is to use your finger, but this does not always do the bset job. Click through for a detailed explanation and video on how to clean you needles/stylus.
