â€œThis mix is dedicated to the art of the warm-up set. The Colors night at Trouw in Amsterdam recently organised an event where Jack and I were booked alongside Oneman and Cinnaman, a line-up consisting of specialist DJs who donâ€™t produce playing for the duration of the night.
Jack and I had been talking about how rare it was to walk into a club and see DJs building up a set and genuinely warming up the crowd, understandable given that every DJ wants to make an impact and make sure theyâ€™re remembered at the end of the night. With that in mind we put ourselves forward to attempt to play the kind of warm-up weâ€™d like to hear more often.â€
Young DJs who have the 10pm slot time: Please. PLEASE. Listen. Learn. Put away the 135 bpm for a few more hours, remember that it’s never a bad idea to play Prince, and relax.
