I don't see your name up there, Proto. Will you be playing?

When he set up the new procedure, he set a two-year limit on dj's.  That is, two consecutive years then (at least) one year off.  It's designed to keep the dances fresh and new talent to be seen.  And, this way (whether he admits it or not) he can hold himself in reserve as a backup in case something catastrophic happens at the last second and there's a dj missing from the schedule.

(That last is only a guess, but it's always a good idea to allow for problems...)

I will not be filling in if something goes wrong, I have a few AV staff and other people I trust to do that.

In general, I shy away from making decisions that appear as if I'm giving myself an advantage (which is already a tough balance to strike enough when I do book myself!) and having a DJ fall off the schedule and putting myself in their place would not go over well.

I will not be playing the main dances, no.

I figure that if I am instituting a 2 years on, 1 year off policy, I should be among the first to take a year off as I do the booking. Smiling

I will maybe be back next year, assuming I can get all the other people I want in and still have room for myself. Smiling

Based on their Soundcloud/Mixcloud pages below, an incomplete projection...

 

VallyRux: progressive, house, electro

Skroy: bass, trap, electro house

Akonite: prog house, deep house, electro house, d&b

Oddy: house, prog house, electro house

Recca: electro-house, trap

Genki: hardcore

Bigbluefox: trance, acid

oh!Danger: d&b

Rigel: funk, breaks, remixes, electro-swing

 

I think Rory & Firr play mainstream and remixes.  Not sure what DJ RK plays.
