    DJ Big Boss Man

    Post by MadAmster on Mon 05 Sep 2016, 7:15 pm

    After half a dozen gigs at 3 different venues I have decided to come out of DJ retirement. I stopped gigging in 1982 or 1983. 90% of my record collection disappeared when I divorced. The remnants have disappeared in the several moves since then.

    Discovered a soul scene in the Dam 2 years ago, started buying records again and had my first gig a year ago. Thursday sees me do a showcase gig at a B2B networking event. Hopefully some work either DJing or acting as MC at events will come from that. Another gig planned for the end of the month and if that is a success it will become a monthly residency.

    A fellow soulie over here who organised 2 of the gigs I played came up with the name which led to the obvious signature tune and the logo is all my own work. Life begins at 62? Who knows.

    The story continues. Did 2 half hour sets in Amsterdam last Sunday and recorded the first set live via my phone's camera. Converted the file to MP3 and uploaded it to Mixcloud. The opener, Chills and Fever isn't to everybody's taste but, with any luck, the rest will be.

    If anybody would like to hear it you can listen via https://www.mixcloud.com/howard-boss/my-1st-set-at-akhnaton-amsterdam-30042017/ ...... not sure if you have to register to listen, if you do the only "spam" is the newsletter and you can unsubscribe to that.

    I didn't record the 2nd set, which was more of a "youth club" soul, the sort of tunes that got played everywhere, every week in the late 60s and early and mid 70s. I will try to reconstruct that set in the week, record it and post that one as well.

    Enjoy.
