Unit 6 :DJ Set Programming

On Monday 7th December, we had planned out the times of our set list and we originally lined up 14 people like for instance:

  • Craggz – Hip-Hop (mellow) 11:00 – 11:15
  • Maximal – House 11:15 – 11:30
  • KC – Liquid 11:30 – 11:45
  • Yellow PANTHER – Trap 11:45 – 12:00
  • DJ C – Garage 12:00 – 12:15
  • RYAN D – Grime 12:15 – 12:30
  • Crystal Pressure – Jungle 12:30 – 12:45
  • Hermz – Grime 12:45 – 13:00
  • MC JAY – House 13:00 – 13:15
  • Soldier of Christ – Grime 13:15 – 13:30
  • DJ Holmes – House / Tom – House EDM 13:30 – 13:45
  • Jacob – House 13:45 – 14:00
  • Joseph – House 14:00 – 14:15
  • Ceaser – Hip-Hop 14:15 – 14:30

However, the following day only nine people (including myself) turned up for the live performance in the canteen as five people were absent. In the end, the recent set list on Tuesday 8th December was rescheduled and these were the DJs that performed:

  • Craggz – House 11:00 – 11:15
  • Maximal – House 11:15 – 11:30
  • KC – Liquid 11:30 – 11:45
  • Yellow PANTHER – Trap 11:45 – 12:00
  • DJ C – Garage 12:00 – 12:15
  • RYAN D – Grime 12:15 – 12:45
  • Crystal Pressure – Jungle 12:45 – 13:15
  • Hermz – Grime 13:15 – 13:45
  • MC JAY -13:45 – 14:15

We decided to expand our time slots from 15 minutes to 30 minutes due to lack of DJ presenters, I went in the end to close the live event and everyone was pleased that we achieved our goal to play the mix live.
