DJing with live percussion, does it have a place?
I originally posted this on the general topics page but thought it might be better suited for the tech page.
Dj's with live percussion, what are you thoughts?
I plan on getting my friends who play hand drums and congas to drum to my DJing for maybe an hour or so at a club but I have never played along side percussion before and I want to make sure it flows and does not upset the mood of the dance floor or overshadow the music. So I plan on sitting the drummers between the speakers and balancing the PA volume to the percussion(with out micing up as the venue is 150 capacity) and also selecting tracks that have room for the drumming over the top.
Anyone got any thoughts? Does it have a place with DJs ?
FK I read that you onced drummed with Walter Gibbons, did it work? and have you tried it since?
