A Night in the Studio

A session in the on-air studio during New Pulse's radio show is anything but smooth. From start to finish there are always miss-haps, CDs that don't work or are missing from the catalogue, even (language as a demonstration of how frustrated I potentially become) equipment fucking up. However heavy the stress, broadcasting the music I love is definitely worth it. The show has taken off well within the CJAM world and I hope it continues to grow in popularity. Artists such as ones previously featured on this blog plus tons more are regularly played on the show, also accompanied by new releases every week.

Don't get me wrong, it is more complicated than merely pressing Play on one of the decks. Being a DJ requires proper attention to song formation, time constraints, potential commercials and station identifiers to be aired, and an effective blend of music and spoken word. Again, it's all for the music. The show is another way to reach out to the re-established fans of the genre, perhaps providing a fresh take on artists, and also an attempt to solidify the opinions of those who remain unfamiliar with it. Overall it's an excellent experience and fun every week. Be sure to tune in and give me a shout if there is anything you would be interested in hearing.

These pictures were taken by my compatriot Matt Ray who is getting into the world of photography (as if doing graduate work in Engineering isn't enough).
