I just started working in a bar, a co worker/fellow dj helped get me the audition/job. he has helped me a lot. i close on a lot of nights, so the other night i was stayed after with the bosses and played tunes and got drunk. they said they loved my music, and that they want me to help my friend by giving him some music or telling him how i am going about finding and selecting music. they also said that they expect that as i hone my skills and learn the bar's crowd i should be able to headline.
the problem is how do you tell a fellow dj they might need to change up their style? especially when they are much more experienced and skilled than you. my talent as it were lies in a compulsive amount of digging and a bit of an ear. i have tried to make suggestions and such but you know deaf ears. i really owe this guy a lot, for everything he has done (teaching me about the clubs systems indiosyncratic sound system, about the bars software etc. when to bring up the etc) and the longer it takes for me to get through to him the worse it will make me look (and i will feel) if things go wrong. i want to just give him some tunes and hope he takes some of them. it isn't a problem of giving him heaters cause there are more than enough out there to fill an infinite number of sets. like i said i am compulsive.
i found about twenty the last couple of days. i might just give them to him, well with the exception of one that is just something i really want to break.
