Top tip for aspiring DJs from an old pro – don’t spill water on stuff!! Had a little mishap this afternoon and split a pint of water over my kit, luckily grabbed the mac mini quickly but the Korg nanoKontrol2 took the full hit. The show tonight featured me trying to get it to work – unplugging and putting on top of the heater – worked intermittently but caught me out a couple of times.

Plus the stream went down briefly a few times. Luckily the music is wonderful so we sailed on through with glitter in our hair
