Last night I was given the opportunity to DJ with Armin Van Buuren at Skyroom.
Truth be told, I really underestimated this gig. There was a huge crowd of people with cameras, hounding the DJ booth, and I was terrified. I'm an open format DJ, that specializes in hip-hop, and though I do appreciate techno, trance, etc, it's pretty scary to spin with someone who is really famous for spinning Trance. Not to mention that, Armin is headlining at Madison Square Garden tomorrow. WTF did I get myself into?
The following is a video of me mixing into his set, and though it's hard to tell, I am actually mixing for the majority of this clip, (about 45 secs), and he was playing with the effects. My heart was pounding out of my chest.
But....no matter how nervous I was, it was a really awesome opportunity. (unfortunately the audio in this clip is distorted)
