sound is more important

boatparty

DJed at that boat party last night. Was really fun except:

1) Unnecessary Zoomba Shanghai LMFAO dance sesh at like 9PM

2) Awful soundsystem. I can’t even begin to explain what was wrong with the sound and DJ equipment but I did the best I could, until a speaker on the roof caught on fire and the party abruptly ended.

Not a serious fire by any means but still. I’ve never in my life seen a speaker combust. Cut costs in other areas, not sound equipment. Lights are a great place to cut costs. No reason for big, bright lights on dancefloors, not to mention the potential fire-hazard from some of the cables I’ve seen out here.

Still had fun, just bummed about how sound almost always gets overlooked or undervalued here. Basically, that party with a better soundsystem, no Zoomba, and an hour longer at sea would be amazing.

Really dope track from the newest compilation by Night Slugs, still one of my favorite labels. Last year they reached across the Atlantic and put out tracks by from Helix from Atlanta and Morri$ from Kansas. Big track, this one by the latter.

Morri$ – White Hood
