I finished off last year’s intro with “What does 2017 hold? Gawd knows but it’s surely gotta be a better one than last year” got that wrong didn’t I? But hey we did get Blue Planet II, more Stranger Things, fidget spinners and salt bae , so you’ve gotta cling on to what you can, right?

Most Memorable DJ Gig
Deeptrak @ Klub Kokoo, Lodz, Poland
This was a bittersweet gig. Great, in that it was Tony and my first gig abroad as Deeptrak and the gig itself felt very fluid with us having 4 CDJ2000s to mess about with and we even had the club owner dancing on the bar. Always a sign of a good gig. Warming up for us was a DJ called Lukespin (Lukasz to his friends), a guy that has been very supportive of me (and Kinky Malinki) in Poland for about 10 years. Lukasz had been very ill the past few years, but meeting us from the airport and during the gig he was still all smiles, even though he had mentioned he was in quite some pain. I obviously didn’t know it at the time, but that was to be the last time I saw Lukasz as he passed away later on in the year. A harsh reminder that life is so short and to enjoy it whilst you can, just as Lucasz was that night. A great guy, great DJ and someone that will be sorely missed.
