Spike is our beard rocking dynamic DJ, lighting designer and sound engineer. His energizing and enigmatic DJ performance will elevate your night guaranteeing an entertaining experience for your evening. He has also migrated into the office as my neighbour to help in the technical and warehouse department. I suppose you could label Spike as a chameleon who blends into each role with professional perfection!
As my partner in crime in our exclusive corner of the office, myself and Spike enjoy cheeky banter and occasional throwing of some delicious snacks across to our office adversaries.
Because of Spike’s close vicinity; he made the prime candidate to probe and today we chatted about his views on “cheese” (music not the food) as he is always a key player within Dreamwave’s DJ circle:
Different people have different perceptions of the definition of cheese.
For example, classic tracks can be equally ultimate floor fillers. You can play tracks that everybody will want to dance to that can accommodate a wide audience without being cheesy.
Classics Whitney Houston and soul can really bring a crowd of guests together. It’s about playing the right tracks that everyone can relate too.
Being a Dreamwave DJ, we pride ourselves on having the skills to read the dancefloor and play a great song selection; it’s about mixing the right tracks together to create class and not cheese!
Music balance is so important.
Some of the best parties I have had the pleasure of smashing have had a great balance of new and old tracks. Certain songs will only work at certain points in the evening. You need to take your guests on a journey and give them a great mix of relatable tracks that spur exciting and energy.
More to come from Spike and our office interactions soon……
