Amkucha Progress Report – Where’s the last four weeks gone?

Facebook Cover Burgundy mint

Nearly a hundred tunes already dropped already!

Simple sums – twenty five tunes, give or take, needed for each two hour show. To give a bit of a breakdown forty nine of those tracks have been on vinyl and the rest digital. Embracing digital mixing has been a learning curve, I’ve always been aware of the huge and obvious benefits but it’s surprised even myself how the percentage is now almost fifty percent of the music I play on the show. If you’d have asked me at the start I probably would’ve projected maybe 10-20% digital and the rest vinyl!

Generally the sound is going in the direction I envisaged with the concept, and as each week’s show passes I feeling a better representation of my tastes and the theme are heard in the overall picture, and hopefully Amkucha will start to build it’s own identity. Some weeks I’m aiming to play more uptempo sounds, more Italo, dream house, deep 4/4 vibes, some Balearic Beat, and others I’ve got planned as pure chillage, but so far each show’s been a sort of build through from one to the other.

2020-01-28 20.37.56

Why the compulsion to always put music into mixes?

Why does every song need a context when so many are works of art wence stood alone?

Sure, over the last thirty years there’s been house, techno, drum & bass tracks that are accomplished productions and solid sounds, but purely filler. And many work well, join a dot, create the context, shape the journey, but alone they’re lost.

What I’m talking about is good music, really good music. Songs you remember, songs that inspire, songs that change your life. Still I feel the compulsion to write a story with them.

A good mix is often called a journey. Maybe this is a little cliched now but if you are a true lover of music and a DJ that’s fortunate enough to be allowed to curate your own sound, then every needle drop a new journey begins.

Personally – and this may be every record buyer ever – I hear a sound, a paragraph in the story not yet written, and I must have! And the constant strive can be to find a narrative to slip this plot twist into.

Every vinyl DJ, (And digital, I’m sure, but I’m not qualified for digital DJ insight), has their record room/shelves/basement/loft/out house (dis-)organised into stacks of ‘chapters’. Each of those chapters containing numerous paragraphs just waiting to be arranged into a coherent trip, aural, metaphorical.

Others – and I know many – just haven’t re-filed their last set!

As usual maybe I’m flexing the grey matter too deeply on this? What is true however is that if a sound resonates with me, on the wants list it goes, as one day – the day that never comes for a collector/sharer of music – the manuscript will be finished.

Multi Genre Affliction

I truly envy DJs who play just one genre of music. I feel afflicted by the fact that I love, crave and desire such a large cross section of genres, moods and energies, I honestly think it’s been a barrier to personal furtherance in this industry.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy with my lot, I think though maybe having your cake and eating it when you want to play a mixture of disco, funk, soul, Balearic, house, acid, jazz, progressive, electro, breaks, techno, samba, bossa, sleaze, yacht rock, tribal, afro, chilled, downtempo, ambient, trip hop, drum & bass, boogie, Italo, easy listening, indie, big beat, warehouse, acid, broken beats, hip hop, electrofunk, jazz funk, new wave, chug, synthwave, nu jazz, nu disco, edits and re-edits, is just not possible?

You think I’m joking just check my Mixcloud!

For years I’ve wanted to open my own bar – I think the reason for this is just so that I can indulge in my multi genre selections!

Could you pick just four genres that tick your boxes? Do you struggle staying within one or two?

Every time I get close to narrowing things down I hear a track, mix or DJ that reminds me of why I love that particular sound and could never eject it from the record box. Balearic as a whole is a good pigeon hole for me but only because Balearic is a vibe, not a sound, although it has a sound, if that makes sense! There are others that class Balearic as big room summer house, some as trancey, many – And where I’m at – class it as the melting pot of good feels and sunset laden sounds. I guess though it comes down to ‘if you know, you know’.

Anyways, I’ll plod on, dropping what makes me tingle, makes me move, or move and tingle!

Parents Evening 3rd August 2019

The next installment of Parents Evening will be held at The Funky End, Aldershot, on Saturday 3rd August 2019. Entrance is free, just needing to register for your free ticket at optixpromotions.uk. The night will be broadcast live on energy1058.com and will feature myself alongside the highly experienced Joe Flanagan and DJ Mystery.

What’s in a night?

Being vinyl only and covering multiple genres brings its own issues and demands. Firstly, obviously, I can only carry so much vinyl, and my usual set is between 3 ½ to 4 hours long. Prior to the night generally I won’t know what sort of crowd will be in. Not being a commercial DJ and not taking 2000 tracks with me on a memory stick means I need to think long and hard about my two boxes of records, which carry about 70 12”s each. Each tune will gives around 4-5 minutes play time plus anything from 5 to 60 seconds being in the mix.

The majority of my night will encompass house and its many forms, given that house music is now over thirty years old and has sprung numerous offshoots this gives me a wide spectrum to work across and I have carte blanche to take the music in any direction. The house tracks I take will run from mid 80’s up to present day, I’ll also maybe squeeze in some 80’s disco, electro, soul and funk, but once into the house vibe I’ll play everything from acid house, Balearic sun kissed sounds, club classics, warehouse and rave, through to big beat, progressive sounds and trance classics.

Musically I like to play lesser known sounds to people, mixed in with recognisable classics. I’ve always said cool but accessible, obscure but not pretentious, but I don’t do Top 40 and to be frank I don’t follow commercial sounds at all as there are a million DJs to cater for that – but it isn’t for me.

Warming things up at around 100bpm I’ll up the pace through the night to about 127bpm with what I see as some logical selections for the next track to a few surprises once I’ve gauged the response to a few tunes and get an idea as to where I can take it and as to how far I can push the envelope.

I get asked sometimes how I decide what to play next and reading the crowd is an expression you’ll hear many DJs discuss as an essential key skill. Once a dancefloor gets going you obviously look for responses in terms of energy levels and facial expressions and you want to maintain the enthusiasm of the crowd and keep those faces smiling, so the best way I’ve found to put it in words for a complete novice is break a track down into two elements, the beats/riffs and the melody/vocals. Sometimes a vocal track will get everyone going but an instrumental version does not have the same effect – the vocals create the energy – other times it’s serious beats and riffs that make a dancefloor bounce and vocal elements are not in call here, so keep working with tracks with strong beats and drum programming in the production. If you go off in one direction and the energy/smiles drop then make the next track a vocal. A simplified version of this as there’s many facets to this, but it’s a start. Are pianos doing it, a bit of a rap, etc. then move that direction.

A quick tangent here but a great example of this is Black Legend – Trouble With Me. Now this is a bootleg track utilising an early 90’s underground techno track House of God by DHS, with of course the lush vocals and breakdown from the walrus of love Barry White. Now this track goes down a bomb whenever it’s dropped but many wouldn’t care for the beats if there was no Barry. If I were in the middle of an old school rave vibe and dropping FSOL, Jaydee, Move Your Body etc. then a crowd into this would usually prefer the original techno track and would see the later bootleg as a commercial watered down crossover.

Currently though the regular venue I play at is an upmarket bar/gastro pub with a late licence and a good sound system. The clientele are anything from cool and hip, (Is that even a cool/hip thing to say these days?), early 20s through to mid-50s and occasionally older. Now it’s no good at all me playing my tunes, in any order, regardless of who’s in attendance, so I need to keep a few tunes in the box to work towards make tracks palatable to some who may not be agree-able to dropping French Kiss straight in. Now here’s one of the tough bits, using sounds to take people to sounds they didn’t think they’d like purely because you’ve put them in context using an aural soundscape. Basically this means taking a more accessible sound bit by bit into a more off the beaten track vibe by musical transition.

Generally at a venue such as this nights where people get up and have a dance are about one in three so your cues for where you take the sound next are much more subtle. Tapping feet, nodding heads, smiles of recognition, sometimes people don’t even realise they’re doing it, these are the visual tells to your next sound. That and also the number of people who come up to me and say they’re loving/loved the sounds I’ve played that night and the fact that I keep getting booked to come back again and again!
