Well, here it is. 20 years ago I started DJing at Ceremony and on Halloween 2016 I finished. It was a great time, the place was packed and I think everyone there will remember it as one of the all time great Ceremony events. I know it was the kind of event I was hoping it would be, my finale at Ceremony six years ago was great, but it felt a little lacking. This one made up for it. Thanks to Lost Boy for letting me go a little long, thanks to DJ Static for keeping the boat afloat long so this was even possible and thank you to everyone who attended, you’re the real reason something like Ceremony can even exist in the first place, it was always all about you.
Here’s the playlist:
Stranger Things (Machete cut)
De/Vision – Rage (club)
Robots in disguise – The Sex has made me stupid (dub)
Trademark – Sine Love
Bizar & Ramsey – In Transit
Little Computer People – Little Computer People (Anthony Rother mix)
Jurrasik – Operator
Mr. Kitty – Scars
Freezepop – Tracy Gold (Fairlight Children mix)
Nine Inch Nails – Survivalism (Tweaker Ray)
IAMX – Oh cruel darkness embrace me
Fred is dead
Kraddy – Android Porn
Brooks and Black Gummy – Never Deader
Ground to Dust – Digging my way out
Pigface and Evil Mothers – Sick/Asp/Fuck
The Barbarellatones – Zombie Drag Queen
Alias & Tarsier – Anon
If I were making this as a mix at home, I’m sure it wouldn’t have been this, but probably half of these tracks I had in mind going in. There were definitely things I has planned on playing that didn’t make the cut and some things I was determined to play that feel a little “shoe horned” into the rest of the set, but I had some personal reasons for doing that and I have no regrets. It was nice to connect with a crowd and surprise myself. Things got a little more nostalgic than I expected too, but that’s cool.
Anyway, here’s a recording of the set. Enjoy.
For you fellow DJs, this was recorded in Serato and I used a Pioneer DDJ-SR controller. No auto-beatmatching was used, just a little looping.
