In a few weeks I will be opening at a very decent club near me - the main DJ plays typical Top 40, house, electro. I have been told that it will be rather dead during my set so it's a perfect low pressure first club gig for me...up until this point I have only done mobile stuff.
I want to make sure I do not step on his toes...I want to keep the energy down like a good opener should. That being said, there's a fine line between that and playing a boring set, if I stick with deep and tech house all night I might bore everyone since it's Top 40 crowd.
I've been told that it would be a good idea to play downtempo, chill house remixes with Top 40 elements...immediately Like A G6 (Jordylicious 1500 Followers Bootleg) came to mind. Also Stereo Love (Joe Fresh Blend). Stuff like that....however, I am VERY quickly running out of similar deep, chilled out or lower energy house remixes of Top 40 stuff. It's very difficult to find.
