When the Abelman family asked Black Smoke to spin for their ‘Take Me Home’ grand sale event October 1, 9am – 1pm, well of course me and The Socialite DJ agreed to do it. We just had to figure out what kind of style of music we were going to spin. We decided to go with electro style with a twist of Deep House and Country! It was a great for the Grand Sale and what excellent way to start the Holiday festivities; A great buy and good music.
So I and The Socialite JD went into the studio shop mood the night before the event. It was a long 7 hours straight. By the time we had the music just right for the event, it was 7am. We had to get ready for the event. Getting all dress and grabbing the gear, speakers and all.
We got to Inside Styles by 8:30am; it didn’t take long to set everything up. The Socialite DJ started it off. I myself went to grab some coffee and have a Cig break. She didn’t go for anything vibing yet just warming things up. But to my surprise customers began to walk in. After The Socialite DJ warmed up, I got behind the tables and started off with electro swing, Bing Crosby to Disney Aladdin, why not?
The sale was called ‘Take Me Home Warehouse Sale’. How can you go wrong with electro swing set style spinning Disney Aladdin? From there The Socialite DJ spun a beautiful set of Deep House, Country swing. From everyone who came seemed to love the style of music that was being played.
Then we did something new to our Black Smoke set, we began to just spin music choices right after each choice. We were playing all styles of swing music, from country swing to deep house. I also spun Latin style sing into the mix. The Socialite DJ followed with country and pop swing. Then we finished with our signature style Liquid Jazz set! By the time it was over there was a few more buyers coming in!
