    School Dances: Slow Songs

    Even if you're keeping your dances mostly upbeat, I'm sure you're throwing in a few couples dances from time to time. I came up empty with current slow dance music. What did I miss? What are you playing?

    School Bans Explicit Dancing

    I love that this school just started to see grinding and that it's songs with heavy bass and constant pounding. Could that be any more vague?

    Pioneer CDJ2000: First Show

    My decks showed up on Wednesday. Couldn't wait to give one of them a test drive while I wait for my coffin to come in. I basically bounced between one side of my dual deck and the new CDJ (using my MP3s) all night. Lots of fun! Can't wait to get the case and finally stop lugging CDs with...

    Export ID3 tags to Excel (CSV)

    I'm searching for a program that might be able to scan a drive or folders and pull ID3 tags like artist, title, album, etc. If found a couple on Google... tried one and it didn't do what I had hoped. I'd like to be able to upload my actual list of MP3 (my music library) to DJ Intelligence...

    DJ Arrested: No License

    DJ Cited: No License I'm wondering if it has to do with ASCAP/BMI licensing (lack of) or one of the local ordinances in place in Chicago. Still, it's the first time I've ever read that...

    How To Check Your MP3s?

    I'm finding a few of my MP3s are garbage. Fortunately, it's the exception rather than the rule. In most cases, there is a flaw on the audio CD from which it was ripped. I've read of a few programs that will scan your MP3s and detect whether they are good or not. Anyone use these? Or...

    Preferred External HD

    Skimming the boards I find DJs using many different external HDs. One issue I'm aware of (in my office) is when the HD goes into standby and take a few seconds to kick in when inactive. I suppose if you're fully digital (me... soon... finally...) your HD will always be active so that may be...

    Can't seem to get Webmin to load. I went to and got a message that support is now which also wouldn't load. Maybe it's a planned outage... anyone know or experiencing the same issue?

    Dance Cancelled: Bomb Threat

    I don't believe any of the Chicago DJs who frequent the boards (Allen, Stevie, Anthony, Len, Adrian, etc.) have this school as a client. How bad would that suck for you as the DJ during peak season and also for the students?

    Self Employed & Lonely?

    Definitely the sounds of some sort of lame personal ad... Actually, the article I'm going to reference has an interesting concept dubbed "coworking". It's basically renting out space at a reasonable cost outside the home in order to interact with others (or avoid the typical "noise" that...
