I was fortunate enough to spend a lovely sunny afternoon playing tunes in the Modern Art Oxford yard before the brilliant Catgod took to the stage as part of the free Yard Summer Sessions which accompany the current exhibition by Claudette Johnson. It was also my first opportunity to properly road test the NI Traktor S2 Mk3 DJ controller which I got just before Christmas. I’ll do another post on the controller soon I think but mostly it worked well. Apart from 1 minor edit right at the start because I forgot to press record, this is a 100% live recording (including a small hiccup where I stopped the track…).
Cheers to everyone that boogied with us and said nice things. I’d love to do more DJ sets so if you’re interested get in contact using the contact form or on the usual social media channels. Tracklisting and Soundcloud link after the jump.
