    Salsa remixes of popular songs

    I tried to listen to the songs on the webpage but I couldn't make it past the first 10 seconds. It's really painful to listen to. That sort of remixes has nothing to do with Afro-Cuban-Rhythms whatsoever. And I sincerely hope that those kind of remixes will never become popular in the larger...

    Patronizing of dancers new to Salsa

    IMHO Vivir La Vida is probably the worst song of Marc Anthony and even if half of the dancers at one evening would request this song I wouldn't play it (I make sure of it by not having the song). Which song do you mean by La Gozadera? This one:

    Patronizing of dancers new to Salsa

    That's exactly what I'm talking about. I assume there was no whining about thats not beginner friendly etc. If you were not familiar with the music you had to deal with it until you got it. ;)

    Patronizing of dancers new to Salsa

    Sure super slow songs or fast up-tempo songs are not the best choice. But not only for beginners. And I would never play songs which have changes to 6/8 time ;). And I agree with @TwoLeftFeet regarding that romantica isn't always that "easy". There some songs where the phrasing of the melody...

    What I'm listening to right now...

    Ire Oyale Sextet are great. I often play their songs at my party and the dancefloor is always crowded :)

    Patronizing of dancers new to Salsa

    I'm curious about your thoughts. As a DJ people sometimes approach me with regard to beginners friendly music. The last time was this tuesday at my party when another organizer booked me for his party. Although I'm familiar with his party and the type of dancers there he pointed out that in the...

    My second choreography! Feedback welcomed!

    I actually have to disagree with you on the timing issue. I hear the 1 like the choreographer does and they actually dance on the right beat from my point of view. The issue with the break e.g. at 0:10 is that the music starts on 5 and not like usually on 1 which then can be confusing. You can...

    Best compliments ever!

    Last year in September I got invited the second to time to a huge gala in Belgium which takes place ones a year. Because the resident DJ had to stop due to health issues the spot was open. The organizer already told me that he was considering me but he wanted to wait after the party to see how...

    Selection versus Flow

    So true. So many times I prepared the music (not a pre-set) and wanted to play certain tracks but it went totally different during the night because I decided otherwise. I don't understand DJs who always play the exact same tracks. For me it's a passion for the music and also a joy to...

    I guess you like the Maldonado track because it's jumping the clave, right :p?

    HELP ME PLEASE!

    Most of the songs are good, but for some reason I don't like to play them. Here my comments on each one of them: 1. Nice, but no 2. It's an ok tune. Although I only play it when requested (once by Super Mario) or at the beginning of a party 3. Nope (But only because I don't play cubana) 4. Don't...
