Mastermix Label Manager Richard Lee lists his top ten Halloween floorfillers!

This 1983 classic from MJ has stood the test of time and fended off all that

The Mobile DJs Guide To After Dark

Mastermix Label Manager Richard Lee explains how creating & offering a new concept can help DJs to navigate through that awkward ‘can you play a bit longer’ conversation…

We’ve all performed at events where the last note of the last song ends and is followed by a chorus of “More…More…More” by some of the guests…usually slightly worse from the effects of alcohol! DJ’s are often under-valued and being asked to play beyond an agreed time can be an awkward situation to be in. As professional DJs we are expected to be flexible and will often play on for a little while longer than has been agreed…but where does it end?


Ten TV Themes That Charted In The UK

By Mastermix Label Manager Richard Lee

A TV theme can be as memorable as a classic track from a well known artist – it has the same power to evoke memories of times and places in our lives and, played at the right time, can work well in many DJ sets.

In fact, the popularity of a good theme tune is reflected in the fact that, over the past 50 years, some of the best have even made it into the UK charts during their time on screen.


The Ultimate Guide to a 90s Theme Night

Mastermix Label Manager Richard Lee breaks down how to structure a 90s theme night

Introduction

The 90s is a fascinating decade filled with an eclectic mix of music styles. As the 80s ended and the 90s began it was the emerging Dance & Indie scene that was to lead the way…although there was a healthy dose of Pop and Novelty hits kicking around as well. Just like the 80s it was a decade that delivered so many great tracks, and some not so great, from a large range of genres.


What Are DJ Edits?

Mastermix DJ Dave Evans gives you the low down on the idea behind DJ Edits, the latest range to hit the Mastermix catalogue.

It seems that everything is getting smaller nowadays; Wagon Wheels, the amount of money left in your account at the end of month, DJ equipment (although I don’t miss the days of lugging around a pair of turntables and several crates of records) and even audience attention spans.

In this digital age people can flick from one song to another very quickly and, as a result, have shortened the amount of time before they get bored of a track being played by a DJ. This has an impact on the dancefloor as the crowd can potentially lose interest in songs and generally don’t want to hear 4 minutes of a single track anymore.


DJ Beats: Summer Playlists

Mastermix have created a range of Summer collections including 4 albums compiled from the hugely-popular DJ Beats range. Each track is a proven floorfiller with added intro & outro beats making mixing even easier and allowing DJs to create unique & innovative Summer playlists.

The Mobile DJ’s Guide to Tropical House

Mastermix Label Manager Richard Lee takes a look at the cooler side of dance…

As DJs we are expected to keep up with current music trends and one in particular really has captured my interest…Tropical House! If someone had told me a few years ago that I would be playing cool dance music I would have laughed in their face but that’s exactly what has happened. I don’t specialise in it, nor do I play it all night, but I now almost always include it as part of my DJ sets.

A Mobile DJ’s Guide to Reggaeton

Mastermix Label Manager Richard Lee gives the lowdown on the music genre that is Reggaeton

I’m asked on a regular basis by DJs to help them with certain styles of music and one that has been mentioned quite a lot recently is Reggaeton. Now I’m no expert…far from it…but I have taken the time to research this music style and found that I knew more tracks & artists than I first thought. It’s allowed me to create a range of mixes & collections both for Mastermix & for personal use on my DJ events.
