Wez G - True Romance

The songs included on this mix seemed to me to have a lovey dovey theme and feel so hence the title 'True Romance'. Deep and funky, it flows nicely, with stand out tracks from Glimpse and Vincenzo and obviously the opening classic from A Man Called Adam. Light some candles and slap a nice meal on the table, while tuned into some upfront Wez G house music.

Wez G Traktor DJ Sets


I am passionate about vinyl. It is the ideal DJ format. It is the media by which DJing first came to life. I made vows to always stick by it. Swore an oath to Enzo @ where I buy my vinyl never to 'go digital' - but as in Terminator, the dance music world has witnessed the rise of the machine and we live in a digital age... I started spinning the odd tune with Traktor to incorporate some stuff in my sets which was unreleased on black plastic. I then decided to give Traktor a proper whirl and invested in some MIDI equipment. It is like learning to DJ all over again. People say it's cheating and yes, software will auto synch beats for you - but beatmatching is not something I have a real problem with anyway. The fundamentals of DJing remain the same: Good selection of music, flow of tunes, hitting the right mixpoints - it's still all about timing and digital or vinyl that needs to be precise, beats matching or not... Anyway - for the past year or so I've been beatporting and traktoring... So here are the sets. I'm not dead to vinyl and still pick up the odd bit... I think live vinyl performances are better for the mind, body and spirit... I am also in the longwinded and tiresome process of converting a much cherished record collection to digital wav.

Wez G - Solar Flare (DJ Set)

A solar flare is a sudden brightening observed over the Sun surface, which is interpreted as a release of a massive amount of energy. Here in the UK we are experiencing a great deal of sunshine and warmth which is unusual for this time of year. Whereas others are nipping off to the beach, I decided to stay indoors and record a nice little DJ Mix, full of energy, ideal to get people moving after they've munched all their barbecue burgers.
