9th Dec 2005 Zinc Bar, Guangzhou, China, 1st Anniversary Party

09th Dec 2005 Zinc Bar, Guangzhou, China, 1st Anniversary Party
The first time playing Soul/Motown/Hip Hop/R&B here. I even played all my old school reggae as chillout at the end. A full house and everyone happy, Martin & his partner (owners of Zinc), Tiger Beer sponsor.
So a good night, feedback from all is good, so another party soon I hope in January.
There is a link to the hip hop/r&b section here, 80 mins long.
I'm quite happy with it although think I could have done a lot better.
The laptop takes the pain out of mixing hip hop, but should have been more creative as a result.
Next time I will pull out the stops a little more, if the laptop can take it!

INBOX, Guangzhou, China, British Council , Rhythm UK Anniversary

Previous Events for The Ghost That Walks
31st July 2005 INBOX, Guangzhou, China, British Council , Rhythm UK Anniversary with A Man Called Adam
This was a packed out place, and despite only playing for half an hour my best performance yet , by far.

They didn't want me to stop and had a really good reaction from the crowd. But A Man Called Adam were due to play, and they played quality tracks, and went down a storm.
It would be hard to find that kind of varied selection ( no cheese or bullshit) even in England.
Lots of people saying they really liked it & many took photos with me!
I tried to wave as much as possible in the middle of my set as their were so many phones & cameras pointed my way!
There may be better quality pics & video, if I can get them I will post them here.
This showed me there is a hunger for something different here, it's not all staple diet of big name western Dj's.
It will take a bit of time but I think I can build an audience here.
I hope to be back in Guangzhou (near Shenzhen) to play again, and maybe even playing my sideline of Soul/Motown. I've already had interest in hiring me for that.
I also had my first recorded interview for Chit Chat Trio (Steven Yang) for a Guangzhou radio station.
When I get a recording of the broadcast I will post it here for you.
