The Life Of A DJ


Hope you are well!

On Friday I went with the Jacaranda Crew on my first station event.
We went cruising on board the MSC Rhapsody from Durban to Portugese Islands.

A Wicked time was had by all. On Friday afternoon Martin did his afternoon
drive show live via satelitte from the ship. On Saturday morning we arrive
at the Portugese Islands. PLayed volleyball had lunch then headed back to
the ship for some R&R!That night Watershead played two sets, they were
fantastic, tight and very slick!! Nice bunch of dudes!!!

Sunday was the day for my big night. An 80's party on the top deck looking
down onto the lower deck, very cool! Lloyd (TheBoss) and I were the DJ's
for the night. Our own soundrig and wicked lighting. I finished up at
02h30 Monday am, Lloyd played til 04h30 what a nutter! We had to get up at

I got to know the guys and gals from Jacaranda on a personal level and
have to tell you they are awesome people. It was a real honour to be
invited to play on board and welcomed into my new radio family!

The pictures are up on my website, click on Gallery
and look for Jacaranda.

Until next time, cheers cheers!

  1. Hey all!

    I managed to download the first 2 podcasts and WoW did it take me back to days of DTB on 5! ( ;-O)

    HEY DEREK, Uhm… a bit of possitive criticism if I may (and Im no expert) but: The fist show went off mostly well except for things like:

    >When you are talking / about to play something, try to make that transition (from when you talk to when you spin a track) a smoother one – not too sudden – if you get what Im saying? – LOL!

    HEY that’s IT! WOW!


    and is it possible to increase broadcast / mp3 download quality upto 128kbps at least? – just asking… ūüėČ

    GREAT STUFF MAN – Keep those trancey tunes coming…
