Heavy Warmup Vol 1

DJ Ayres – Heavy Warmup Vol 1

Here is Volume 1 of Heavy Warmup, recorded live at Bond in Las Vegas. Expect LL Cool J, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Ruff Ryders, Madonna, Neyo, Sharon Brown, Lil Louis, Janelle Monae, Robin S and a ton of unexpected 11 PM heat. Pre-bangers!  I’ll be putting up a new Heavy Warmup mix every two weeks from your favorite DJs.  No drops, talking or crazy Ableton trickery, just the pros warming it up like Kane.

Heavy Warmup Vol 0

I’m starting a new mix series on my site called Heavy Warmup. I love this DJ slot, it’s the time of the night when people are getting their second drink, the dancefloor is just starting to fill up, and the DJ can tease the crowd with great forgotten jams and new secret weapons. So I’ve asked a bunch of my favorite DJs to record a heavy warmup mix and I’ll be posting a new one every couple of weeks. One of the big inspirations for this series is Woodman’s 90s R&B Warmup CD, which you can download right here. So I’m starting the series off at Volume 0 with Woodman and as an added bonus he sent an lost interview about this classic mix. The inimitable Unemployed Lloyd does the honors.

Unemployed Lloyd: So how has your life changed since you made the RnB opener?

Woody Fu: My life has changed exactly zero. Actually that’s not true. Random people come into the lab and tell me that they love that R&B cd, that they see it lying around in CDJs at like Lotus or whatever.

Unemployed Lloyd: Your mix has probably been played at least once in every major club across the world. How does that make you feel?

Woody Fu: Like a chump! I totally tossed off that CD as like a “we are all lazy dudes” thing and everyone has it! Meanwhile I spend like 4 months making Metal on Metal with Michna and all we get is a write up in German Vice.

Unemployed Lloyd: The gigs must just be pouring in huh?

Woody Fu: Man I would not want gigs that come as a result of people hearing that CD. It would be like the W hotel Times Square x1000

Unemployed Lloyd: And the women? You probably have to beat them off with a rock filled sock.

I’ve been out in Las Vegas for the last week spinning at The Cosmopolitan and hanging out with my family in the desert.  I just put up a bunch of pictures on Flickr, check them out here

I’ll be playing four nights in Las Vegas at The Cosmopolitan this month. I’m excited because it’s the newest hotel in Vegas, and they are doing a great job with bookings: some recent DJs have been Holy Ghost!, Jubilee, Classixx, Prince Klassen and DJ Mel. Big Boi and the Black Keys are also playing (in the bigger room) while I’m there. Get at me on Twitter if you’re in Vegas!
