As The Record Turns

It is always advised to listen to a song before playing it out. Every now and then I find myself dropping a record that I haven't listened to or haven't listen to in it's entirety. Usually the latter. Sometimes these songs will have a hidden gem or hidden disaster. It could be a really loud and invasive break, or sometimes the beat will drop all together for like 16 bars which could be an eternity on the dance floor. I'm not quite sure which I prefer. It's good to be in control, but sometimes we have to just let life happen. The record could always skip no matter how well you you think that you know it won't and playing a song you never played before could completely change your entire set.
