As soon as I thought about creating this thread, I immediately thought of the 'Lucy, daughter of the devil' Burning Man episode, where one of the characters says...
"We're looking for a DJ"
...and all of the guys around them raise their hands and say, "I'm a DJ!"
Well, our theme camp will be having live sound for the first time this year and we're also hosting a deep playa party on Wednesday night, but strangely enough I'm lacking in DJs. Now, before this thread gets flooded with interested people and my PM box is overloaded, let me explain a little bit more about how I want to do this...
Obviously, there are tons of DJs in the Burning Man community. There are good ones and there are, unfortunately, bad ones. So, since most of the people who will express interest in this will be people I don't know, having a mix that I can listen to online will be a definite bonus.
Also, since some DJs have shown to be unreliable, contacting me and submitting a mix will not guarantee you a DJ spot. You will need to come find me when you hit the playa, so that I know that you're still interested. But, even THEN your DJing spot won't be guaranteed. You'll need to find me a few hours before your set so that I know that you're still semi-conscious and at least mildly coherant to be able to perform.
Before I get flamed for the strict guidelines, please know that I've promoted events before and I've come across situations that have warranted the above stipulations. I've had DJs that have told me they've spun for years, only to show up and ask me how to crossfade the channels. I've had DJs that completely flaked on an event and left me high and dry. Finally, I've had DJs so completely wasted that they couldn't stand up.
Sooo... if you're ready to burn, enjoy playing music, and want to have fun with us, please get in contact with me!
