When it does come out I hope and believe DJ Pascoe’s Top 10 Tunes (For All Occasions) will create a lot of discussion, debate, disagreements and arguments. It’s not that I don’t like seeing people get along, but I’m convinced the human spirit thrives on having its emotions properly shaken and stirred every now and then. So, knowing just how passionate people can get about their opinions on music, it seems inevitable that the face to face and virtual conversations the book should spark will leave some metaphorical blood on the dance floor.
I’ve set the ball rolling, but I really need your to help to keep things moving and growing. I’m soooooo looking forward to seeing the other peoples’ Top 10s across the full range of genres and categories of music featured in the book, as well as some new ones. While you’re here please take a moment to submit yours, as many as you want, and help create a massive database of different selections.
My Top 10s are based on a combination of my personal likes, ‘must play’ and ‘play if you can’ lists I always ask my clients to send me before I play for them, and some expert advice from a few friends and fellow DJs. Although I’ve been DJing for many years now and have entertained audiences in a huge variety of different types of party, I find I am always learning new things about the music that gets people going. I have certainly learnt a lot through the process of producing this book. So, as well as setting off a passionate debate, I really hope the book and this website will prove to be a useful resource to DJs, both the experienced and budding, which in turn will mean it is of real benefit to the great party going public of the world.
